Our Story

Discover how we started and what we're passionate about at Wickpy.

The Wickpy story begins in Islington, London.

As working from home took off in 2020 we found ourselves taking small actions to make our home more relaxing and empowering.

The evening ritual of lighting candles became more important, as did the essential oils that fragranced them, connecting us to nature which we missed so much, and helping us to remain calm in a locked down city.

With newfound respect for the benefits of making natural candles with essential oils, we felt it was an activity others may enjoy and benefit from also.

  • Sustainably sourced
  • Consciously packaged

At Wickpy, we feel strongly about social justice issues, and it is important for us to be a solution-oriented business in the community.

We created The Wickpyfesto to make clear our commitments in the world. We intend to continually improve, and we welcome suggestions and ideas as to how we can best serve our community and planet.

We hope you will join us on our adventures in candle-making, craft, connecting to nature, protecting the planet, its people, and empowering each other along the way.

Shine bright dear star!
