I’m Kristina, the face behind Glow Bottle and the one who creates, pours, boxes and ships all Glow Bottle candles that arrive at your door.
Have you ever noticed that candles make everything better? I totally agree. I always had a love for cute and quirky things, design and creativity, as well as an obsession with candles. So, it was inevitable that I would begin making Glow Bottle candles that blend these passions and launch my own new venture.
I wanted to create candles to tick all the boxes that I believe are important: aesthetically pleasing, high quality, good value, eco-friendly and that I will genuinely love using. It took few weeks of testing dozen of essential and fine fragrance oils, mixing waxes, experimenting with wicks, and accidently starting a few small fires in my kitchen to create the kind of candles I’d been searching for. When the pandemic hit Ireland, I decided it was a now or never moment for me to explore candle making.
Meticulously crafted, from Wick to Wax
By creating Glow Bottle candles through countless testing, I was able to get every note just right. For the wax, I tested every option, and landed on a natural soy wax — pairing it with a 100% cotton wick to ensure a smooth burn. I want your home to be a toxin-free zone, which is why I’m conscious of Glow Bottle ingredients. Let me assure you that every Glow Bottle candle never has parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and is always cruelty free. Glow Bottle recycled glass jars are designed to be reusable (from a planter to a pen holder). Create a positive impact and keep the good vibes going with a strike of a match!
Glow Bottle candles transform your home into an immersive world that never stands still
Glow Bottle Core Collection grounds your home in the essential ten scents, while our Signature Collection always keeps things fresh.
As you already guessed, I fell completely in love with the science and process behind creating candles. This business is my own little dream, so thank you to every single person who chooses to buy from Glow Bottle!

We are passionate about recycling and want to do our bit to save the planet.
Our recycling initiative was born after many Glow Bottle customers ran out of room and uses for their empty candle jars. We introduced our recycling initiative to enable customers to return their empty, undamaged candle jars for refills.
