A Norfolk mother-of-two has seen huge success after launching her fragrance and candle business.

Jasmine McMillan started Wish Upon a Candle in 2021, originally as a hobby at her home, selling luxury candles.

The scents from the candles aimed to capture holiday moments and included names such as 'Africa at sunset', 'mainstreet bakery' and 'pirate cove'.

Mrs McMillan said: " I'd just had my baby, my boy was in nursery, and I knew now was the time to take the risk, so I just did it."

"It started as a hobby on the side, just selling to my friends and family before it began to grow."

Six months later the candle business based in Downham Market expanded to local craft markets across Norfolk.

At this time, Mrs McMillan saw a gap in the market and began the Wish Upon a Candle social media pages.

The candle business was one of the first to set up on TikTok shop where it began to grow and grow, seeing viral fame with an early video hitting 3 million views.

Around this time Liam McMillan, Jasmine's husband, came on board making the business a family affair.

In 2023 the brand expanded into wax melts. 

Room sprays, body mists and shower smoothies are set to launch later this year. 

The couple have big plans for the future, with an aim for a bricks-and-mortar shop to open in the Downham Market this year.
