Beautiful Bitter Sweet Aromas Collection

When did you start Bitter Sweet Aromas?

I have always been crafty but never really found my niche. I started making candles and wax melts in my downtime, I would make them for my beloved family and friends as gifts. As people talked and the news spread it then grew into making them for friends of friends and so on and that’s how I am where I am today.
