Around 20 years ago, raising children, my youngest child had skin sensitivity which led me to look to using natural products in my home and on her skin.  I trained in Aromatherapy and the creation of natural bath and body products. This is where my passion and creativity was born. Since then, I have continued to use my home made, natural face and body products.
I continue to learn about new ingredients and techniques, most recently completing a Diploma in Natural Skincare Formulation (2019) and currently completing the updated version.  I am often trying out new ideas and my friends and family have regularly been my test subjects. They are my biggest fans and  I am grateful always for their support.
A six years ago I started playing with creating candle gifts and my home and theirs are now filled with those creations too.  I love what I do, and want to share it with you all, hence MelissaMade with Love.
