As a female founded business, we are passionate about championing other female founders and creators.
One of the first brands to come on board at Six Acres was Glød. Founded in London by Joanna and Charlotte, their mission was to create clean-burning, naturally scented candles in eco-friendly packaging to combat the sooty fumes of the scented candles they had previously been burning in their homes.
Charlotte has ties to Edinburgh, having previously lived here for five years. She's excited for a trip back up here to see the stock in situ, take a walk up Arthurs Seat and then spend the evening chilling in a few favourite pubs to counteract the walk!
We love that each new candle scent is inspired by and named after an inspiring woman;
Claire's favourite is Florence - a subtle blend of bergamot, lavender, and patchouli, named after Florence Nightingale who famously dabbed lavender on the brows of wounded soldiers to soothe them.
Sarah, meanwhile, loves Malala - a zesty blend of lemongrass and geranium, named for Malala Yousafzai’s energising and unstoppable spirit. Ever since she saw Malala speak in Edinburgh a few years ago she's been in awe!
Blended, poured, labeled and packed by hand in their South London, each candle comes in two sizes.
Come in and check them out for yourself!
