The Natural Soy Candle Shop: from Kent with Love

Natural Soy Candle Shop Doyouspeaklondon Lifestyle London Blog

I came across Julia & Ray’s business on Instagram, while searching for products matching my interests. And I discovered an authentic love story. First, as a couple starting a new business around their passion for candle making. But also a true love for natural products. They create irresistible scented soy wax candles, tealights, wax melts as well as other accessories. 100% natural. 100% vegan and cruelty-free. All looks good, smells good, sounds good!
As Mother’s Day is fast approaching I can’t resist showing you the perfect gift to treat your beloved one to a lovely, thoughtful and heartwarming attention.
Today, DOYOUSPEAKLONDON presents you The Natural Soy Candle Shop and their Mother’s Day Gift Box!

Natural Soy Candle Shop: a business of passion

Natural Soy Candle Shop Doyouspeaklondon Lifestyle London Blog
The first impression is sooo important and this packaging with its elegant ribbon ending with a perfect knot just did the trick!

Behind The Natural Soy Candle Shop stands a “wife and husband team of candle-makers, who both share a passion for beautiful home fragrance”.
Natural Soy Candle Shop Doyouspeaklondon Lifestyle London BlogPassion: that’s essential to run a successful business, isn’t it? Especially when this passion comes with the desire to find the best ingredients, the ones that will be respectful of our health.
Natural Soy Candle Shop Doyouspeaklondon Lifestyle London BlogToday, unfortunately, we can still find some candles (even well-known branded ones) containing harmful chemicals and causing health problems ranging from dizziness and allergy symptoms to asthma attacks… In opposition to that, Natural Soy Candle Shop just created the candles you can trust  100% 🙂

After testing for many months, Natural Soy Candles Shop was able to launch their tealights and wax melts first, with candles nearing their final testing phase.

Their story began in 2018 when they “started to test and make tealights at home” (they had been supplying candle-making materials for over 5 years, so they knew the trade). And it was all clear from the start for them that paraffin would be avoided in favor of soy wax.

The candles tests finished in late 2019 and they were launched in early 2020.

The highest quality of ethical products

The Natural Soy Candle Shop fine-tuned its concept to create natural and sustainable products. They use “sustainable soy wax which isn’t farmed from creatures’ habitats but responsibly grown and farmed”.

Let’s buy candles more responsibly…especially when ethical rhymes with magical 🙂

I am particularly sensitive to the recycling and reuse effort and really appreciate Julia & Ray’s using soy wax, which makes these elegant amber glass jars easily reusable after a good cleaning with soapy water (and it’s very well known at home that I’ll always find some bits and bobs to put in there :-))

The perfect match: some books, a candle and chocolates (tea was 2 seconds away)!

Also, the fragrance and essential oil blends are all carefully chosen with oils that are “paraben-free, phthalate-free, vegan friendly and cruelty-free”. What’s more reassuring than a brand you share your values with??

Everything is made perfect to ease our minds when lighting a candle, isn’t it? Oh and look: tea’s here now!

The perfect Mother’s Day gift!

It’s always good news when you receive such an elegant parcel at home…

I was very lucky to celebrate Mother’s Day a bit earlier this year… Not to spoil the surprise, I had not looked at the content of the box online before. Each step of the opening and unwrapping was then VERY exciting… (if you think your beloved one could be jealous, you’re just one click away from spoiling her 🙂 and let me add this: it’s VERY good value for money).

Alakart: another amazing business promoting plantable and eco-friendly products like this gorgeous card!

First, I discovered the greetings in the form of an artistic and environment-friendly card by @alakartcreations, a small business Natural Soy Candle Shop has teamed up with on Mother’s Day occasion. A La KArt creates unique and bespoke, plantable cards as well as wildflower seed bombs (I promise: I’ll grow my plant at home and send you a picture soon, Kitti!).

A box filled with lovely-smelling products!

I carefully opened all packagings one by one and took the time to touch, smell, study them all before rushing to a lighter!

Ta-dah: look at these lovely goodies!!

As far as I remember, I’ve always enjoyed lighting a candle to create a cozy and warm atmosphere while reading, relaxing, or even working.
Natural Soy Candle Shop Doyouspeaklondon Lifestyle London BlogThis is how once the candles in hand I ended up putting them in the different rooms I was going to as if they were meant to follow me everywhere …

From the brief but revitalizing after lunch break, to soak up some sun and the lovely smell from the candle while reading a great book…

How lovely indeed…

These tea lights fitted in very well with my blue decoration and the fresh, seasonal fragrances of orange blossom, sweet mandarin and jasmine were very much appreciated while watching a film later that day…

Undoubtedly, candles are ideal to create a special atmosphere in the bathroom while enjoying a bath! Even though a bath tray (which I don’t have … yet) seems preferable to keep your scented candle close to you, these handmade candles are so fabulous they filled the whole room with a lovely smell in no time…

I used the lavender, menthol and camphor spray in the bedroom, giving a real feeling of purity and quietness before sleeping…
Whenever there is lime or lemon involved, I love it!! This one is my favorite candle so far…

We constantly strive to find the best, most eco-friendly products we can to give our customers the best quality candle possible.
