Before we'd even poured a single candle, we knew we wanted to name our signature scents after women who inspire us. And Florence Nightingale – aka the Lady with the Lamp – seemed a fitting choice for our first-ever blend.
Florence's story of selflessly following a calling to help others is truly inspiring. She's long been celebrated as the founder of modern nursing, but a lesser-known fact is she was also a pioneer of using aromatherapy in medicine, applying lavender oil to the brows of wounded soldiers to soothe and comfort them.
So of course, including lavender in our Florence scent was a must! We've blended it with bergamot and patchouli (also well-known for their soothing qualities) to create a blissful fragrance that infuses the room with a sense of calm and boosts mental well-being. We think Florence is especially lovely for bedrooms, bathrooms or anytime, anywhere you're craving a chilled-out and positive ambience.

ABOUT THE BRAND:
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.
