The Story

Lily, owner of The Glow Co.I'm Lily, a former baker who's obsessed with ingredients. When a chronic illness made me step away from my handmade pie business, I went back to school to find a sustainable job I could do from home.


During the pandemic, I took a break to regroup and get creative. Finding pleasure in staying home is how I started curating scent experiences for the changing phases of the day, and that's what sparked my candle habit. But the ones I bought were never quite right. To check all my boxes, they had to be non-toxic, smell strong enough to be noticeable but not so powerful that I can taste it in the air, burn evenly, cleanly, and for a long time, and look beautiful. So, a perfectionist to the core, I made them myself!

Whatever your journey looks like, take time to rest and restore, and embrace each stop along the way. The in-between moments are the best part.

The Elements

Fragrance

Your health, and that of our environment, is super important to me. That's why The Glow Co's scents are phthalate-free, vegan, cruelty-free, and contain no Prop 65 ingredients. They are made from a combination of essential oils, resins, and synthetic aroma compounds which are non-toxic. For more about why I don't exclusively use essential oils, see FAQ.

Wax

The Glow Co uses wax made purely from U.S. grown soy. This supports U.S. agriculture, protects critical wildlife habitat by not contributing to deforestation, and is an alternative to fossil-fuel-based paraffin wax. Soy wax also burns longer than other types.

Wick

My wicks are made from paper and cotton, and coated with a tiny bit of beeswax. I'm working on making my candles bee-free, but running into supply issues! Join my email list at the bottom of this page, and you'll be the first to know when my candles are 100% vegan.

Container

The Glow Co candle jars have a durable, matte glass finish that emits a soft glow when illuminated. They're reusable, match any decor, and make a beautiful statement on a vanity for holding hair accessories, or cotton balls and swabs. They're also great for holding pens, rubber bands, or as an office catch-all. 

Packaging

Everything I use to pack and ship my candles is biodegradable. Even the packing peanuts dissolve in water, so they don't have to go in your trash bin.
