About us

Hello and welcome to Bey & Bo. If you’ve landed on this page then it’s more than likely you’re either, a candle fanatic, a lover of all things coastal, or adopting a more sustainable lifestyle. Or perhaps, like me, it’s all three!

I’m Rebecca, the founder of Bey & Bo.

I started Bey & Bo in 2020 as a hobby. My hobby gradually transformed into a passion and then my passion into a business.  

I live in Portstewart, a small picturesque coastal town right on the tip of the North Coast of Northern Ireland. I’m lucky to have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world right on my doorstep.

When I first started making candles I was drawn to the idea of crafting something that would capture the scents of this coastal haven. The salty breeze, the sound of the waves and the warmth of the sun on your face– it's pure bliss! Who doesn't love the beach? But what if you could bring that feeling home with you? That's where we come in. At Bey & Bo we've crafted a home fragrance collection that captures the essence of coastal living, all while being kind to the planet.

With scents like Coastland, Berry Beach, Sand Dune, Driftwood and Seabird, each candle is like a mini vacation for your senses. And if candles aren't your thing, we also offer cruelty free, long-lasting reed diffusers and vegan friendly wax melts in the same coastal-inspired fragrances.

Creating an eco-conscious candle brand was important to me. Sustainability, and being kind to the planet, is something I strive towards and has played an integral part in the Bey & Bo journey. What sets us apart is our use of natural rapeseed and coconut wax, which not only burns cleaner and longer than traditional paraffin wax but due to supporting sustainable farming practices, is also way more sustainable than soy wax.  This makes Bey & Bo not only a luxurious addition to your home but also a responsible choice for the planet. So you can enjoy the scent of the beach and be confident that your choice is helping to make a positive impact on the environment. Furthermore, our products contain no animal-derived ingredients, so you can enjoy them with a clear conscience.

I hope that our candles and the extended range of home fragrance bring you joy and comfort as they fill your homes with the scents and beauty of the coast that has inspired them. With Bey & Bo you can bring the beach to your home – no sunscreen required!

Thank you for being part of our story. We can’t wait to continue sharing the magic of our coastal-inspired scents with you. Let the journey continue and may the fragrant memories we create linger in your homes for years to come.

Let's talk about wax...

In the beginning, I started out making Soy candles but the more I discovered about it, the more it became clear that soy did not live up to it’s sustainable claims. Soy is grown on an industrial scale and has a multitude of negative environmental impacts. Just being a plant doesn’t make it Eco-friendly. Soy wax is made from the soybean oil and unfortunately the soybean industry is known for it’s deforestation and use of pesticides.

For this reason, all Bey & Bo candles are hand poured using a Rapeseed & Coconut natural wax blend.   Rapeseed and Coconut wax is the most sustainable and luxurious wax out there. It burns slowly and cleanly and also distributes fragrance evenly. This wax is blended in Europe and is made from coconut oil and rapeseed oil and nothing else. All wax is completely free from paraffin, soy, palm and beeswax.  It is vegan and 100%  plant based.

​Coconuts are a sustainable high yield crop. The supplier of wax for Bey & Bo is pioneering a programme to train more farmers on sustainable coconut agricultural practices. There is no forest removal in order to plant new coconut trees.

Pure rapeseed wax comes from the oil of rapeseed, a common UK grown crop, free from GMO. The wax is natural, renewable and biodegradable.
