Derry Mood Melts
Our Product & me
Hey whats the craic?
Welcome to Derry Mood Melts.
My name is Michaela and I am busy mum of 4, who took a hobby and made it into my very own small business. As you can tell 2020 had been the year of wax melts, with everyone stuck in isolation there had been lots of little wax melt pages popping up all over the place ~ which is amazing to see. Although it left me in a position were I was to either get lost in the crowd or make a Brand that stood out from the rest.
So that's when Derry Mood Melts was born. Not only are my products handmade in the heart of Derry City
(in Ballymac~ you know it!) but they are also renamed using Derryism's & our city slang! I found that during these strange times a giggle was well needed. I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy making them for you and if my naming puts a smile on your face for even a second, then I am buzzing.
LET'S TALK WAX
When I started this wee venture it was all about Soy wax & everyone was using it, so I assumed this was the only way to go. Now after a lot of research on different types of wax, some things just didn't sit right with me.
I am not an overly "green" person but did you know that Soy is the 2nd biggest cause of deforestation?
How crazy is that!
So that is what prompted me to move on to a new option ~ Rapeseed Wax!
My lovely supplier sent me a sample of their new rapeseed wax they were offering a while back. Now I was so reluctant to use it, I have spent a lot of time trying and testing fragrances with soy wax to make my melts perfect and I wasn't sure if I was up for the task of doing the same with Rapeseed wax..
But I wound my neck in, put in a lot of hours and experimented with it. To tell you that I am delighted with the outcome is an understatement. Rapeseed Wax is an absolute delight to work with, the scent throw ~ cold & hot is fantastic! Not only is this by far a better product to use for the environment but it has upped my game 100%.
If you are thinking about a change then here are some great reasons why you should choose Rapeseed Wax:
*Low carbon footprint ~ Rapeseed is grown in the UK & Europe.
*It does not create harmful toxins
*It is non hazardous for us, our pets or wildlife
*It helps our Bee's! They love the nectar that rapeseed flowers produce.
* It fuels our vehicles (in the form of bio fuel)
*It is sustainable
Rapeseed wax burns at low temperature so the fragrance evaporates gently from the wax pool which allows the aroma to linger for longer.
The Bee's love it, I love it and I have every faith that you will too.
(This change will not affect how amazing my wax melts are so don't worry!)
