About Us


Our Story

Welcome to Wool & Wax. We are a home grown business with a mission: to create candles with captivating scents, beautiful design, and the best ingredients whilst being mindful of our environment. 

 

Each of our candles is made by hand from beginning to end in our home studio in Co. Wexford, Ireland. We use soy wax and lead-free cotton wicks for an eco-friendly, clean burn. Our candles are petroleum-free, cruelty-free and 100% vegan. To minimise the environmental impact of our business we have focussed on plastic-free packing and re-filling using recyclable materials.

Where it all began!

Caitlin Kennedy is the fragrance obsessed young woman who , at 15 years old, founded Wool & Wax. Caitlin comes from Monamolin, Co. Wexford and armed with nothing more than a kit from a local craft store, she began making candles as her TY Young Enterprise project in 2020. She soon became deeply immersed in the process of candle-making and has passed her enthusiasm onto her mother, Michelle, who now helps her run her business. Their passion is to create beautifully packaged natural candles that will fill your home with amazing scents.
