🍂 How To Practice It This Fall 🍂

Hygge (pronounced hyoo·guh) is the Danish word for a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. The definition isn’t set in stone, however. It’s been described as everything from “the art of creating intimacy,” to “coziness of the soul,” to “cocoa by candlelight,” according to The Little Book of Hygge’s author, Meik Wiking.

Hygge can be practiced during every season, but it’s especially relevant in fall and winter as a way to remind ourselves to stay cozy and cherish the little things.

*Cue the heavy blankets, warm socks, and candles — lots and lots of candles.*

Here are 5 Ways that You Can Practice It This Fall:

1. A warm cup of hot chocolate on a cozy bed

2. Indulge Mindfully.

3. Put Down Your Phone.

4. Relax.

5. Spend Time With People You Love.

How will you invite hygge into your life?

Our Story

Hi! I’m Michelle Simmons, co-founder & owner of Slow North.

After years of slowly ridding our home of less-than-healthy, toxic products and replacing them with natural alternatives, we hit a roadblock when it came to finding a suitable replacement for candles. We lived without candles for a good while but greatly missed the calming ritual of lighting a candle to relax in the evenings.

The impetus for creating Slow North's line of plant-based candles was the birth of our son. While pregnant, we became even more aware of just how many products in our house contained mystery concoctions of synthetic chemicals – some of which are not required on ingredient listings. We became increasingly unsettled.

We searched for alternatives and recognized a need for well-designed, naturally healthy candles on the general market. Motivated to create products that boasted all ingredients honestly and with integrity, we began experimenting with candles that we would feel good about burning in our own home.
