Hand poured in the West Wicklow mountains, our vision for This Makes Scents was to develop a sustainable and eco-friendly candle company. Looking around, we were disappointed to see excess plastic packaging. We want our home to smell heavenly, but knew this could be achieved in a more sustainable way. Being eco-friendly doesn’t mean the quality is reduced! Soy wax comes from soybeans which are renewable, burns for almost 50% longer than paraffin wax and holds a fragrance better - giving you a longer and superior burn. It also provides a cleaner burn, leaving no sooty deposits. This is really important for your health, but even more important if you're pregnant, have kids or pets.
