Stone Wood & Oil
We create handmade scents for home & body with a focus on sustainably sourced raw materials.
Nature is our biggest source of inspiration and each of our products contains at least one element that links our urban experience to the wild.
One of our main reasons for starting SW&O has been to add a level of calm to our lives. The subtle scent of sandalwood in the air, the gentle crackling of our wood wicks, the frozen poetry of our wooden slabs - all of this point to some core desire to commune with nature even in places that sometimes feel so unnatural.
Soy Wax and Wood Wicks
The main reason why we choose ecological soy wax & wood wicks for our candles is simple: because they are 100% plant-based.
Many common candles are made out of paraffin wax, a by-product of petroleum. When burning this kind of candle, toxic chemicals can get released into the air. Soy Wax on the contrary has a clean and even longer burn.
The wood wicks for our candles are not only toxin-free and natural, but they also give a unique beautiful wood crackle sound. Like a little bonfire at home.
Only pure Essential Oils
We carefully blend our curated scents for our reed diffusers with only pure 100% essential oils. Finding the perfect balance of top, heart and base notes is all part of the process.
In summer 2018, we have decided to leave Berlin for some time to go on a journey across Brazil. Our goal was to visit traditional artisans, potters and farmers to learn and exchange. In a small Brazilian village near Salvador, we met the 95- years old ceramicist Dona Cadu. The charming old lady is creating beautiful ceramic bowls passionately with her own hands for decades. She only uses clay and glazes she sources from her surrounding. Each bowl is carefully fired in a pit fire with bamboo. Smoke patterns develop on them, making every single piece unique. We have brought a limited number of these beautiful traditional ceramics back into our studio and filled them with our soy wax and seven wood wicks. Creating a little bon fire experience in your home.
