About Us

Hello I'm Christine, founder of Soboan Candles.

My candle journey started some years ago!

I sadly lost my precious son to cancer. To help control the terrible grief, I used fragrance to try to lift my depression. I started by having a few fragrant candles and wax melts around the home so that I could always smell something wonderful as I walked around the house, fragrances that made me smile. I love the smell of gorgeous aromas.

A few years later I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and a few years after that I had a stroke which left me with mobility issues and had to take early retirement.

I began making scented candles as part of my rehabilitation. Research suggests that aromas have a positive effect on mood and brain function and I needed help with both mood and brain function.

Making candles pushed my mobility and concentration and it became my therapy.

Having made so many candles and tried so many different waxes, wicks and fragrances, I now have candles I am proud of. I have advanced from making candles in my kitchen to making more products in my own workshop.

My handcrafts have given me a chance to work again but at my own pace and on my own terms.

All my products are designed and handcrafted by me from my home workshop in Lincolnshire, UK. I only make small batches at a time which means I can ensure the highest quality product.

My husband David is my business partner offering ideas and inspiration and also on tap to deal with the fallout from my little business dramas.

We are delighted you have found our website and hope you enjoy our carefully designed handcrafted products. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Thank you for your valued support.
