Our Story

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 new brand to the 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, interwoven for a consistent burn throughout.

Here at Só Soy we’re a fan of keeping things simple, and we let our fragrances speak louder than our design.  ‘Lemongrass, Lime & Ginger Root’ was our first-born fragrance, and other scents have since joined the family. In June 2017 we introduced wax melts to our product collection, alongside our Gift Boxing Service shortly after in July. We've also acquired some great stockists on our journey so far - we can't wait to see what the future brings!

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