A Scent of Sweden: Svensk Co

Svensk Co

Always intrigued by the Scandinavian simplicity and having lived there, Sofia wanted to grow a product line that had both the best raw materials and a modern and sleek design. And that’s how Svensk Co was born. As she expands her product line she holds that initial goal close to her heart. Sofia lives in San Francisco where she handcrafts each candle with love.

Sommarang is swedish for, ‘Summer’ Meadows. And that’s the perfect way to describe the scent with a mixture of sweet floral lavender, and rejuvenating rosemary essential oils. It’s a perfect treat to light for kitchen and even bathroom.

Svensk Co candles contain the finest soy wax which burns cleaner and stronger than other waxes. Each candle is hand-poured, blended with signature mixes of essential oils and sealed with 100% natural cork stopper. The candles are then packaged in our hand screen-printed muslin bags.

Ignite Your Senses with Lite and Cycle

Lite And Cycle Featured Image

(Lite and Cycle Lavender Candle, $78)

Artist and designer Kristi Head created Lite + Cycle in 2013 with the intention of harnessing the aromas  of the wild to create genuinely pure scents and beautiful, functional designs. Applying her love of elegant aesthetics, belief in nature’s intelligence, and stubborn commitment to purity standards, Kristi creates refined products that nurture body and spirit.

Lite and Cycle’s signature geometric pattern is a modern take on the mandala, a spiritual and symbolic representation of the universe that, according to Carl Jung, signifies to the whole self striving for harmony. The open negative space at the center represents a quiet point of focus — the light.

My Apartment





I love to surround myself with pretty things. I could spend hours in my bedroom locked away from the world. I try to keep candles in soothing lavender, Diptyque Feuille de Lavande makes my absolute favorite. Candles are a great addition to give off a nice glow in the atmosphere. Fresh flowers preferably peonies, in vintage bottles near the window add a nice touch to the decor.
