Today's featured Etsy shop... MM Candle Creations

My name is Mel, and my business is named MM Candle Creations. My Etsy shop was started in November 2012, just after I became serious about my candle-making business. Basically, my business name is an extension of me... MM are my initials, and I felt "Creations" covered what I do the best... simply because I do not just make candles, I make many creations, and most of these are my creative outlet! 

I currently sell highly scented soy candles, tarts, essential oil aroma bead sachets, and wax-dipped scented fire starters. I am currently considering expanding and including a bath and body line.

I have always been fascinated with candles, and I have wanted to make them since I was a kid. At about ten years old, I had a HUGE mishap in trying to make a candle with no knowledge of how to do so (how hard can it be, right?!). I decided a couple years ago to buy some candle making kits, and I learned how to make candles that way. After I learned about the process and researched all the supplies I would need, I started shopping around for the highest quality supplies I could find at the most affordable price. I am proud to say I have found the best wax I have ever burnt in a candle, and some really nice scents! Over the past year, I have learned how to make many other wax creations, and I will continue to learn as much as I can to keep my customers happy.

I have never had an unsatisfied customer, and 87% of my customers are repeat customers with specific requests. Custom orders are challenging at times, and those are my absolute favorite orders to fill!!!
