Preparing for 2019

Hello, Hello!

I’ve just about surfaced from the pre-Christmas 'Candle Crazy' season!  Thank you to everyone who supported us again in 2018. I hope you all had a great break and have hit the ground running in 2019.

Where did November go?

It’s been a while since I last blogged. November was so busy I can’t even begin to describe it!

Everyone knows how to burn a candle right?

Everyone knows how to burn a candle right?

You strike a match, put it to the wick and just like magic, the candle starts to burn. Then after a few burns, that annoying thing called ‘tunnelling’ happens. You know, the part of the candle that actually burns, gets smaller and smaller, which is so frustrating if, like me, you're a little OCD.

Launch, love and lorries

What a week!!

The website launching on Sunday evening saw a flurry of activity and some serious love from friends, family and social media followers.

I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that!

Product Testing, Website Design and Launch!

Things at Solu HQ are really hotting up.  The final touches to pretty much everything are being made, leading to some long days, longer nights and snatched moments of time wherever possible.

Solu and Soy Wax

Solu and Soy Wax

What’s the big deal with soy wax I hear you ask? Well, until I became interested in the manufacturing of candles, I probably would have asked the same question. In fact, my question would probably have been “what is soy wax”?

Solu: The Beginning

Solu: The Beginning

My love affair with candles has been many years in the making. I remember my first home shopping trip to Ikea fondly.  “ooh, I must buy some candles because I’m a grown up now”. It wasn’t long before my slight OCD meant this type of candle wasn’t going to work out for me.  Why wouldn’t these flippin candles burn all the way to the edge?!
