I love my Smelly jelly air freshener! It has just the right amount of fragrance and is not over powering. It's the perfect air freshener without the harmful chemicals. Quick turn around and packaged with care to arrive without damage. Thank you!!

A Moment in Paradise

In my former life, I have been a jailer, prison guard, legal secretary and then the last 10 years working for city government my last position being the secretary to the Fire Chief until my lay off the summer of 2011 all while being a single parent to my two sons.
I always toyed with the idea of opening my own business, just wasn't sure what I was going to sell. I tend to be somewhat obsessed with all things tropical, palm trees, sunshine, ocean breezes, Key West, what's not to love? So I decided my shop should somehow implement my passion for those things. I had seen some sea shell candles and wreaths and thought I can do that. I found a wonderful company that not only sells all the supplies you need, not to mention the most wonderful fragrances, they also are packed with documents to tell you how to do everything. So my adventure in candle making began. I started out small doing candle melts and the shell candles using paraffin wax. They turned out nice and smelled wonderful. I also dabbled with wreaths and ornaments.
I ventured into pillar and sand candles and with these my love of palm wax happened. I went to order some pillar wax and found palm wax, it is actually made from palm trees, how could I not try it? After using it and seeing the wonderful crystal and feather like effect the wax has I was hooked and haven't used any other wax since.
My shop has now added Smelly Jelly and aroma bead sachets and aroma ornaments, and I still do some wreaths and regular ornaments, but my real love is melting the wax and seeing what comes out of the mold.
I keep quite a few fragrances on hand, mostly my tropical loves, but I keep adding more, many because customers have asked "Can you get this scent"? So if you don't see what you are looking for don't be afraid to ask.
All my items are handmade by me, working in my 2 bedroom apartment, melting my wax on my kitchen stove. It has turned into a wonderful adventure.
