About Us - Só Soy Candles

Só’ – meaning Luxury in Gaelic (Irish)

Founded in October 2016, Só Soy was born from a love of scented candles and the longing for all things luxury. Every Só Soy is hand poured and boxed in house by Hannah - self-confessed candle loving founder. We're a big believer in self-care and know the importance of some well deserved 'me time'. Our goal at Só Soy is to provide you with the tools to create your own spa-from-home experience, and allow our luxury fragrances to relax and rejuvenate your mind.


The story of Só Soy starts in Hannah’s home at the Giant’s Causeway, a mere 10 minute walk from the famous Northern Irish heritage site. Each and every candle is hand poured in house, using soy wax made from a blend of pure soya beans and botanical oils. Soy wax is 100% natural, renewable, and eco-friendly. Compared to the likes of Paraffin wax, Soy wax gives off a much cleaner burn that can last up to twice as long. We always use the highest recommended ratio of fragrance oil to wax, ensuring a strong scent throw, and a fragrant aroma that fills your home. The wicks we use are specially designed for the use in soy wax, interwoven for a consistent burn throughout. Our products are vegan friendly and cruelty free. We never use ingredients that are derived from animal products, and we're against animal testing.

Being a self-confessed candle lover, Hannah started Só Soy purely from a love of scented candles and the curiosity to make her own. Playing with luxury fragrances and a minimalist design, the brand was born. "'Lemongrass, Lime & Ginger Root’ was our first-born fragrance, and other scents have since joined the family. I'm a fan of keeping things simple and I prefer the fragrance do the talking." In June 2017 wax melts were introduced to the product collection, alongside the Gift Boxing Service shortly after in July. Since the launch in October 2016, a number of stockists have also been acquired, and the list continues to grow.

Thank you for visiting the Só Soy store – we hope you'll fall in love with our fragrances.
