Stone Wood & Oil
We create premium handmade home decor with a focus on sustainably sourced raw and local 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 soy wax for our candles is simple: because it is non - toxic.
Most common candles are made out of paraffin wax, a by-product of petroleum. When burning this kind of candle, toxic chemicals are released into the air we breathe. Soy Wax on the contrary is 100% plant-based and has a clean burn.
Many candles also have wicks that include lead, which is also toxic. We chose wood wicks for our candles - they are not only pure and natural, but they also give a unique beautiful wood crackle sound. Like a little bonfire at home.
This summer, 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.
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.
Light Honey Scent
Our Bees Candles contain only 100% pure bees wax - nothing else. We find that its beautiful and natural light honey scent is a gift from nature, that needs no accompaniment.
Bees Wax is also a natural air purifier. It produces negative ions when burned and cleans the air in your home.
With its golden flame, it is the longest burning candle.
