If you’ve heard of any kind of candle wax, it’s probably soy. And that’s for good reason. Soy Wax is the go-to wax choice for many candle makers nowadays thanks to its eco-friendly credentials, clean burn, and quality scent throw.
Soy wax is the OG of vegetable-based candle waxes, leading the way from the old school mineral and petroleum waxes that were popular a decade ago, to the modern cohort of sustainable waxes. There are now hundreds of candle brands, from small kitchen table makers to large international companies, using soy wax for their candles, which can be a little overwhelming if you’re not sure where to start.
At Osmology, we pride ourselves on sourcing only the best home fragrance brands from around the globe, so here you’ll find the soy candle makers we highly recommend. The majority of brands we’ve included use 100% soy wax, but a few use a soy-blend wax that mixes a small amount of another type of wax into the mix to improve things like burn time or fragrance throw.
Here are our picks for the best soy wax candle brands available in the UK (thanks to us!)
