At 1102 Candles we are committed to making luxurious hand poured soy candles that smell as good as they look.
1102 Candles is a small family run business from County Durham. My name is Becky and I hand pour all of our candles and run the business along with my husband James.
Candles and fragrance have always been a passion of mine - if you visited me at home you would always be welcomed by the scent of my newest candle burning and there is nothing I find more relaxing than soaking in a bath in the warm glow of a candle.
On 11.02.2017 our beautiful daughter Isla was born and made our lives complete. With the birth of our daughter, we decided that it would be the perfect time to take up something I love and could focus on in our home.
Soy wax is a vegetable wax derived from soybean oil and has many benefits compared to paraffin wax which is derived from petroleum.
Soy wax burns cooler than paraffin wax, which means that soy wax candles typically last longer, it is cleaner burning with no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants and comes from a natural renewable source.
