About us

Hello, I’m Chrysa!

During the second lockdown due to Covid-19 in 2020, I needed to vent and start a home bound hobby. I soon took to candles as I had found them to be a great company while stuck at home. In my research, I found out things I had never stopped to think about.

Most candles are made from paraffin wax which is made from petroleum. This is not sustainable and it’s not very healthy for us or the environment when it is burnt. I then found out that there are cleaner alternatives such as soy wax, which is made from soy beans and is overall better for the planet and for us.

I experimented A LOT until I ended up with Soyea Candles that look pretty, smell amazing and are more eco-conscious than the high street alternatives I used to get. I have taken great care to make sure that our packaging is plastic-free, from the boxes, the filling and even the tape. All the candles are handmade and packed by me, with love, for you.

Our name is a word play on soy and yea because this is the feeling we wish to elicit from you! Our dream is to make candles that you’ll be happy to decorate your home with and light after a tiring day, to relax.
