CREATED WITH hYGGE AND NATURE IN MIND
Hi ! I'm Lotte, the creator and founder of Lanxel Candles.
Inspired by nature - made for hygge
As many of us become more aware of the impact that our buying choices have on the world at large, people are increasingly searching for more ethical products. We ask ourselves questions such as: Were the people who made this product fairly treated and paid a reasonable wage? What is the environmental impact of this product? When I buy this, is it helping the community I live in?
When you buy a Lanxel Product, you can treat yourself to a bit of luxury while knowing that every aspect of this candle and diffuser – from the packaging to the product container – has been produced, designed and sourced, with ethics and sustainability firmly and foremost in mind.
Lanxel's scents are developed from bespoke blends of fragrances, with the help of a perfumer. Our scents are a combination of essential oils and aromatic compounds. We have consciously chosen to work with an infusion of both because our research has shown that this is far more ethical and fair than the way in which many standard essential oils are sourced. In doing so, we are able to provide a clean-burning candle by using a lead-free wick made of linen and cotton. This means that when burning your Lanxel Candle, the only thing you will be breathing in is a lovely fragrance.
Our wax is made from 100% rain forest-safe soya and rapeseed oil. Soya and rapeseed wax is a renewable green resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable or faster to the rate of consumption. Better still, our wax does not stain. This means that Lanxel Candles are better for your home environment as well.
Ever since establishing Lanxel, I've focused on producing deluxe natural scented candles and diffusers with the least impact on our environment. I work closely with all my suppliers to guarantee all my products are made from biodegradable, European-grown produce - Select yours today!
You can take the girl out of Denmark - but she's gonna bring "Hygge" along!!!
“I'm not long in a new location before a candle is lit. Candles are part of my hand luggage whenever I travel.”
“With a warm blanket, a box of herb teas, a couple of candles and a diffuser you can create a "hyggeligt" moment anywhere.”
Lotte grew up in Denmark and learned from an early age about natural skin care from her beloved grandmother. The power of complementary treatments was introduced to her when she sought help for her skin issues with a Chinese- trained acupuncturist at the age of 18.
Leaving Denmark in the early 90's, she discovered a whole new movement of holistic and complementary health living and enrolled herself into many related courses. Her love for cosmeceutical skin care, aromatherapy and reflexology has never left her and she still keeps up with new developments and research, and introduces them into her own business model whenever possible.
Having lived in several European countries over the last 25 years, she has learned to adapt to many different cultures and life styles and it has enriched her life and business philosophies in a way she could never image. The environment, sustainability and "hygge" are three things that are always been important to her.
Today Lotte is based in Geneva, Switzerland with her husband, teenage daughter and rescue dachshund, Mia. The stunning sights of Switzerland have inspired her to create a collection of natural-based candles and diffusers where her and her team lovingly work and develop new products and scents daily - Select yours today !
