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!
I am also full time international cabin crew, and even though it means I am away a lot, it also means that I get to work on what I love doing most in some pretty amazing destinations.
From the soy wax flakes to the finished product, everything is designed and created in house by me. I hand pour the candles, design and print the labels and make sure that every item looks perfect before it gets to its new owner.
I use only 100% soy wax, cotton 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 friendly.
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! xo
