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 that 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 and any space where a chilled-out and positive ambience is key.
Our Florence scented soy wax candle is available in two sizes:
Medium - burn time approximately 50 hours
Large - burn time approximately 70 hours
ABOUT GLØD SCENTED SOY WAX CANDLES
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. Check out our candle care guide to get the best out of your soy wax candle.
Each candle is presented in a reusable amber jar that glows softly and features a screw-top lid to preserve the fragrance and protect the wax from dust. It’s important to us that we minimise our environmental impact, so we wrap every order in plastic-free, recyclable packaging and choose recycled materials whenever possible.
For every candle or gift set we sell, we donate £1 to support the incredible work of the charity Women for Women UK, which helps survivors of war rebuild their lives.
