WHERE IT BEGAN
Melting Perfection was born in lockdown 2020, I stated making wax melts for myself and family but soon become addicted to making them. I struggled during lockdown with my mental health along with many other people and I found this helped me get away for a little while (plus watching wax melt is so satisfying). I started just selling to friends and family to pay for the stock I bought and quickly realised I had an opportunity to help other people. So, we are now one year in business, and I have learnt so much and I have now developed, where I would like my business to go.
My mental health experience started when I gave birth to my daughter in 2019. I had a very traumatic birth with blood loss and suspected sepsis and had to stay within the hospital for a week before been aloud home. As you can guess I didn’t deal with this very well and started to develop a mild case of postnatal depression, which was confirmed by my doctor. I didn’t feel I was at the stage to be taking tablets for this and wanted to find an outlet to help myself. Picking up hobbies I had previously loved and having wax melts to help boost my mood helped a lot which is where my addiction to making them started
Melting Perfection for me was to help escape my mental health worries through my senses, why not do the same for everyone else. Even though you should not rely on these to cure your mental state, aromatherapy should be used as part of a larger treatment plan. My new direction with my business means new products and hampers are going to be created for helping mental health and the journey you will take. While along side having all the popular and unusual scents to treat yourselves too.
