Our Story

Hello! I’m Sophy.


I began making candles as a hobby in 2017. 

I always knew that I wanted to create something that people will love. I've always loved the cosiness of candles, how when you light one it just instantly relaxes you, boosts your mood and smells delicious all at the same time (they're basically little miracles in a jar) - so just like that I bought an electric hotplate, pots, pans, wax and everything else I needed to finally make my own. I started out making them for family and friends and I was shocked to find out how much people actually loved them.

It took over a full year of experimenting and countless trial and error until I'd finally cracked the art of candle making and I was completely happy with my recipe (and trust me, it's a science!). I opened my online store in 2018 and Solely Soy was born!

Everything is designed and created in house by me. I hand pour everything, design the labels and my website, package your orders and make sure that every item looks perfect before it gets to its new owner.

I have a huge passion for travel and I wanted to create something that will transport people to far away places, whether that be the scent of coconuts In the Caribbean or Fig & Honey on the Greek Islands.

I use only 100% soy wax, cotton and wooden wicks and the finest essential oils and fragrances and that is it! No additives, no nasties, just gorgeous clean burning candles.

Everything is vegan friendly, cruelty free and eco conscious. 

I have definitely found my passion and I really hope that you enjoy my candles just as much as I love creating them for you! x
