Welcome to Ayrshire Handmade Soap


Old School Soap & Candles By Ayrshire Handmade was founded in 2014 by Alan Semple, the creator and fully qualified soap maker. Based in Ayrshire on Scotland’s scenic Clyde Coast, the Old School Soap & Candles Company is surrounded by inspiration with beautiful scenery, historic landmarks, some of the finest golf courses in the world, and a long list of famous sons such as Robert Burns, Robert the Bruce, and Sir Alexander Fleming – to name just a few. The company began to provide hand-crafted aromatherapy soap, without colouring and using only the purest essential oils. All the natural pure distilled oils we use are plant-based, as we believe this is better for your skin and our environment. Being in a region that is steeped in such history, it is no wonder that our candles are something special!

Hand crafted for you

Old School Soap & Candles prides itself in bringing our customers the very best hand-poured, natural rapeseed wax, and scented candles and melts which produce premium quality, more environmentally friendly candles. We do not dye the wax in our candles, therefore all of our candles and melts are creamy white in colour (with the exception of a few due to natural pigments in the fragrance oils), as we want the candles and melts to remain as natural as possible. In a world of instant communication and information, cheap mass produced products, and disposable goods, it is good to know that there are still some things that have been created with enthusiasm, love and a personal touch. Please visit our brand new online store, where you can indulge yourself with our range of luxury natural soap and candle products. We are sure you will enjoy the experience of burning our candles as much as we love making them!
