Our Story

Welcome, I am so glad you are here! My name is Shea, owner and maker behind Soul Roots Wax Co. 

Candles have always brought me comfort, created warmth in my home and showed hospitality. What started as a hobby quickly turned into something very personal and close to my heart. 

The roots of our craft started in 2016, after taking a candle making class with a friend while living in Chicago. Needless to say, I instantly fell in love with the craft and soon after I started pouring candles in the kitchen of my Chicago apartment. The candles I made were intended for personal use and eventually were gifted to family and friends.

In 2018, with the encouragement and support from my family and friends, I decided to turn my hobby into a business and Soul Roots Wax Company was born. During this time, I had relocated to Michigan and was a newlywed. Then in the Spring of 2019, my husband and I welcomed our twins, Karson and Kennedy.

Since becoming a wife and mother, I became more conscious of what products we used in our home. Little did I know, that most commercially made candles are made with petroleum-based paraffin wax, dyes and other toxic materials.

This inspired me to create honest, eco-friendly, non-toxic and clean burning candles.

Each of our candles, wax melts and room sprays are hand poured with heart and soul in small batches with using fragrance oils that are free from phthalates and Prop 65 chemicals. Our candles and wax melts are made from 100% American grown soy wax and are free from paraffin and dyes. 

It's our desire to share more soulful moments with others through the craft of slow burning, non-toxic candles, making emotional connections one sniff at a time. Each of our products are created to fill your home with love, from our heart to your nose.
