Tell us a little about your shop.
Melt Your Heart Creations is something that bloomed from a hobby. It began with me making candles for my loved ones, and soon, others started showing interest. This led me to launch my own business. I specialize in candles and wax melts and adore working on custom orders.
Right now, I'm focusing on getting my Etsy shop off the ground while also managing my website. As you can tell by the name, everything is themed around love and happiness because above all that is the most important. Hope you enjoy my creations as much as I love making them.
What makes your products special?
I think what sets my products apart are the custom orders. I gather as much detail as I need, then create a stunning keepsake that represents something significant to the customer.
What inspired you to open a shop?
Before my move, I dedicated 23 years of my life to being a Trauma Medic. I saw people on their worst days and even though I could fix the body I also wanted to fix the heart by showing that someone cares. I began to share my handmade candles as gifts to brighten someone's day, maybe even touch their heart.
What Pepper Jane fragrances or colors did you use to create your products?
LOL, It would be easier to list the fragrances that I do not use. All the Pepper Jane’s scents are amazing, I'm currently in the process of collecting each one for customers to select from.
What is your favorite Pepper Jane ingredient?
I absolutely love Cupcakes at Tiffany's, it is my all-time favorite and also my children and my customers all love it the most.
Why do you like to shop with Pepper Jane?
When it comes to shopping, the factor I value the most is kindness, and Pepper Jane’s has that in spades. I cannot say enough good things about them. Plus, the delivery is prompt with well-packaged items that never leak.
