A BIT ABOUT US
When the second national lockdown hit in 2020 I decided I wanted a new hobby that I could enjoy at home. I ordered 800g of soy and coconut wax and all the gummings to make my first batch of candles. I sent most of the candles north to my family who loved them and encouraged me to start selling them. My boyfriend came up with the very fitting name Wapping Wicks, and I haven’t looked back since. I have always been excited about homeware but teaching myself the chemistry of candle making has been quite the learning experience and more complex than I ever realised. So what started out as a lockdown hobby has become a passion and I’m delighted to now share it with you. From the start I was keen to make sure we supported the local community in Tower Hamlets. All profits from the first 2 months were donated to charity and we are committed to continue donating 10% of all profits to a different charity each month.
