Natural candle making, from click to door.
The Wickpy story begins in Islington, London. As working from home took off in 2020 I found myself taking small actions to make the home more relaxing and empowering.
The evening ritual of lighting candles became more important, as did the essential oils that fragranced them, connecting to nature and creating an atmosphere of calm for the home.
With a newfound respect for the benefits of making natural candles with essential oils, I felt it was an activity that others may benefit from, especially now that we're all spending more time at home.
Wickpy candle-making kits help people to make natural essential oil candles - chemical-free, sustainable, ethically-sourced, reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable. No plastic packaging. No paraffin wax. Just natural, ethical ingredients created with love for an unforgettable candle-making experience and beautiful life-affirming candles.
No excuses. No empty promises.
We feel strongly about social justice issues at Wickpy and it is important for our brand to be a responsible business in the community.
Wickpy essential oils are ethically sourced and our candle wax is made from soybeans. We offset carbon emissions created from deliveries to our customers in rainforest protection and re-wilding projects. For every product sold, we grow two new trees.
We created our own manifesto (available below). The Wickpyfesto makes clear our commitments to the world. We intend to continually improve, and we welcome suggestions and ideas as to how we can better serve our community and planet.
We hope you will join us on our adventures in candle-making, craft, re-connecting to nature, protecting the planet, its people, and empowering each other along the way.
