We provide a wide variety of high quality handcrafted soy candles, home decor and more.
We are the family behind The brand! My name is Kristina, I've been married to my high school sweetheart for a little over 14 years. I have a pretty serious love of travel, iced lattes, and true crime! We have two kids and I was able to make Southern Soy my full-time job after relocating from Mobile Alabama to Tuscaloosa Alabama in 2020! I previously worked for a medical technology company for over 12 years.
Southern Soy didn't start off as a true business so I'll tell you how it began. In February of 2017 I lost my father very unexpectedly. At the time I didn't realize it but I was trying to do anything and everything to keep myself busy. I painted, took on re-decorating projects, stayed up crazy hours putting puzzles together, and traveled a little. July 2017 I had a brilliant idea to let my kids make their own candles. Not even halfway through they lost interest and I realized it definitely wasn't a kid friendly project but it was therapeutic and I instantly fell in love. I had a few friends that bought some and we grew into a little business from there. July 27th 2017 we officially became Southern Soy!
I truly love what I do and couldn't imagine my life without this small business. I know my dad would have been incredibly proud! We wouldn't be where we are without all of our sweet customers! You may not know us personally but we recognize your names as the orders come in and you mean the world to us ♥️
