Our Story - Só Soy Candles

Só’ – meaning Luxury in Gaelic (Irish)
Só Soy was born from a love of scented candles and the longing for all things luxury. We’re a fresh new brand to market, founded in mid October 2016 by self-confessed candle lover Hannah. Our goal at Só Soy is to provide you with the tools to create your own spa-from-home experience, and allow our luxury fragrance oils 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 using soy wax, made from a blend of pure soya beans and botanical oils. Soy wax is a relatively new product that was discovered in 1991  - it’s 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, to ensure a strong scent throw, and a fragrant aroma that fills your home. Our wicks are specially designed for the use in soy wax, made from unbleached cotton and interwoven with a linen thread.

Here at Só Soy we’re a fan of keeping things simple, and we let our fragrances speak louder than our design. Currently our candle collection consists of 3 sizes and 6 fragrances. ‘Lemongrass, Lime & Ginger Root’ was our first-born fragrance, and 5 other scents have since joined the fragrance family. As a new brand, we’ll naturally be expanding the list of fragrances in the near future, and they’ll possibly be some other home products to join.

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