Inspired by nature - made for hygge

Ever since establishing Lanxel in 2015, I've focused on producing the best natural scented candles and diffusers with the least impact on our environment. I work closely together with all my suppliers to guarantee all my products are made from biodegradable, European grown produce - Select yours today !

 Having lived in many European countries over the last  25 years I have learned to adapt to many different cultures and life styles and it has enriched my life & business philosophies  in a way I could never imaging. The environment, sustainability and hygge is three things that's always been important.   

You can take the girl out of Denmark - but she will bring Hygge along!!!   Hygge is such a Danish thing. Its part of the air we breathe. It does not translate well but the meaning is soon clear to anyone visiting Denmark, even for a short visit.
Think of the warmest, coziest things you could possibly imagine. Flickering candles, log fires, sheepskin rugs, faux fur slippers, hot water bottles (complete with hand-knitted covers), warm tea or hot chocolate and that oddly pleasurable burning feeling you get on your back from leaning up against the radiator too log on a cold day? That's HYGGE. 

 
Some people pack perfume for a romantic weekend. I pack my massage candles.

ETHOS

The candles are all made  of rapeseed and soybean wax.  They burn 90% cleaner and 3 x longer than paraffin candles. They are soot-free if you blow them out correctly. Click here. They are produced with pure unbleached cotton or untreated wood wicked. The base of the diffuses is made from unfermented distilled  grain, certified by the European Soil Association.  The diffuses contain no salts or other impurities.   The unique fragrances are obtained by combining 100% natural ingredients from plants, flowers, herbs and fruits together with pure essential oils.

It's important to us that we feel we make a difference. We promise:
