We are G L Ø D /glʊ/ meaning ‘glow’.

Our name is inspired by the Danish tradition (also known as hygge) of finding great joy in life’s simple pleasures, such as an uplifting scent or the warm glow of candlelight. But while we have a definite Scandi influence, we're very much a UK brand and we craft all our soy wax candles, essential-oil blends and bath salts by hand in our South London studio. We only ever use natural ingredients and pure essential oils, and all of our packaging is either reusable or recyclable.

Because we believe the only impact we should have on your environment is filling it with a beautiful fragrance.

We're passionate about celebrating, supporting and empowering women, so each of our signature blends is designed to honour a woman who inspires us. Every purchase enables us to proudly support Women for Women International, a charity that helps female survivors of war rebuild their lives. We're currently sponsoring a woman through the charity’s Stronger Women, Stronger Nations programme, so she can transform her life and inspire hope for the future.
