Our Story

La Sorella Soy Candles was born from a love of winter, fragrance and the relaxation that only comes from snuggling up in bed by candlelight – as well as an obsession with experiments, my ongoing search for new hobbies and a mutual interest with my sister. La Sorella means “sister” in Italian and is a tribute to my own sister, Hannah, who taught me how to pour my first candles; as well as the other fun, caring and inspirational ladies in my life.


All La Sorella Soy Candles products are hand poured in a little studio in my home near Fremantle, Western Australia. Each candle is wicked, poured and cleaned by me – usually with a coffee in hand and an episode of “Friends” playing in the background. All of our products are made from soy wax and lead-free cotton wicks. Soy wax burns cleaner and for longer that other candle waxes, so not only are our candles fantastic for your family and the environment, you’re also saving money. How great! 


We hope you love your candle as much as I’ve enjoyed hand making it for you. We can’t wait to see how you style your La Sorella Soy Candles products – don’t forget to tag us on Instagram #lasorellasoycandles.
