Jayne McDonald launched Jayne's Wax Melt Bar in Falkirk a month ago after watching her daughter, Louise, try her hand at creating such products.
Her decision to give wax melt making a go professionally has been vindicated by the Wooer Street shop’s success since it opened.
Jayne, who lives in Glen Village, left a job as a senior support worker and started making everything from candles to ornaments at the start of the year.
Customers are offered a wide selection of gifts, including memorial plaques, at Jayne’s Wax Melt Bar, which also runs regular competitions.
Recalling how her store came into existence, Jayne said: “It was by accident!
“My daughter had started doing her wax malts and I decided I was going to have a shot. I started about eight months ago.
“It’s all home-made and I make it myself and sell gifts like candles, diffusers, ‘in loving memory’ plaques and ornaments. I’ve been doing it online for a while.
“Business has been quite good. I do a lot of advertising and my niece, Leighanne, does a lot for me as well.
“I run online competitions which pull people in and I’ve just put my Christmas range online.
“Thanks to everybody who has welcomed me. The street has been fantastic, they’ve all given me gifts.
“A big thanks to my customers too.”
Jayne’s Wax Melt bar is open from Monday to Saturday, 10am-4pm each day.
