It all started with a candle making kit..
Hello you! My name is Ben and I am the founder of Wax This Way.
I grew up in Sheffield and have lived here for most of my life. I am a true northerner at heart - family values mean everything to me and I run this business based on those principles.
The majority of my 20's were spent in the aviation industry giving me the chance to see the world and experience different cultures. I adored flying, it was a very fast paced industry however my goal was to always run my own business.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and we we're placed into the first lockdown of April 2020, I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands so I decided to order a basic candle making kit. I followed the step-by-step guide and there I had it - my very first candle! I then started to experiment with different waxes, fragrances and wicks which then led into wax melts. Before I knew it I had candles and wax melts burning in every room and I absolutely loved it!
As time went on, I began developing a brand. Along came a company name, a logo, Facebook page and an Etsy store. I still remember when that very first order came in, I practically danced around the house! Orders then started to flood in and the feedback was incredible.
Fast forward since then and my business has continued to grow. Wax This Way now has a unique collection of fragrances available to purchase in my range of candles, wax melts, diffusers and room sprays.
My vision was, and will always be to produce high quality products that you would find in the high end retailers but to always remain affordable.
You can now shop via the website or find me at numerous event locations including local markets and artisan fairs. For those of you who know me personally, it won't come as a surprise that the Christmas events are a firm favourite of mine!
I now invite you to enjoy browsing my website for the perfect product. I sincerely hope you love your purchases and thank you in advance for your custom.
Ben & Mr Douglas x
