A rich, velvety blend with a woody base, sweet rose notes and herbaceous hints, inspired by the incredible Rosa Parks.


The inclusion of rosewood oil in this candle inspired by Rosa Parks is, of course, a tribute to her name. But we’re always intrigued by the symbolism of the plants and flowers we use, and when we learned that the rosewood tree is known as a symbol of integrity, strength and feminine energy, we knew it was an even more perfect choice than we’d realised! Rosa's act of rebellion on that Montgomery bus in 1955 was a one-woman demonstration of strength and integrity that became the catalyst for the civil rights movement, sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott and ultimately led to Alabama’s racial segregation laws being declared unconstitutional.

We’ve added rose geranium to beautifully balance rosewood's sweeter notes and give the scent a herbaceous depth. The result is a bold, unapologetically floral blend with an impressive throw and a powerful aromatherapeutic effect on your body and mind. Light it to infuse any space with a soothing fragrance that can help you relax, detoxify and overcome stress.


GLØD candles are lovingly hand-poured by us, Jo and Charlotte, in our studio in South London. We only use the purest essential oils, cotton wicks and natural soy wax, which means our candles are vegan friendly and burn cleanly and evenly with no black soot and without emitting harmful toxins.

Each candle is presented in an amber glass jar that gives off a lovely soft glow when lit. It’s important to us that we minimise our environmental impact, so our candles are all entirely plastic free and delivered to you in recyclable (and often recycled) packaging.


Our Rosa soy wax candle is available in two sizes:

Medium single-wick candle: ~160g (burn time approximately 45 hours)

Large single-wick candle: ~220g (burn time approximately 60 hours)
