'Só’ – meaning Luxury in Gaelic (Irish)
I really wanted my candles to be simplistic and let the fragrance do the talking. I was able to design the candle packaging with this in mind, and all the products that followed. Over the years, Reed Diffusers, Wax Melts, and Carpet Freshener have been added to the collection, in a growing family of fragrances.
All products are vegan friendly and cruelty free. I only use luxurious fragrance oils, and soy wax from suppliers that are responsibly and ethically minded.
I'd always worked a full-time job alongside Só Soy and in my 4th year of business, I made the leap to leave my day job. The business was growing faster than I could manage, and it was the natural next step for me. I stopped working from home and moved into my own Ballymoney based studio in February 2021. Once restrictions lifted, I was able to open the Só Soy shop, and for the first time I had a physical space where people could come to smell fragrances and shop in store.
I really hope you'll join me as my small business continues to grow and expand. I'm so grateful for your support, and hope you'll love the products as much as I do.
