Candle "Morild" from Lofoten Seaweed
Norwegian sea light for the home
In addition to the culinary products from Lofoten Seaweed, the Norwegian startup also offers beauty and wellness products from the underwater world. A very special little treasure is the Seaweed candle with the name Morlid, which translated means sea glow. However, this term is also used to describe the glow of fluorescent seaweed, which is reflected in the design of the packaging: Light reflections in the crystal clear turquoise blue sea. The "Lys fra havet" - meaning "Light from the sea" - printed on the tin is also a reminiscence of the luminous properties of algae and candle. But: There are also in the candle itself actually algae, which are poured into the wax with.
Refreshing scent of lemon and ginger
In addition to romantic candlelight, Morild also exudes its fragrant essential oils at the same time: lemongrass and ginger oils provide a delicate citrusy touch - and that for a duration of up to 30 hours. Whether used as a "freshener" in the office or as a "relaxer" in the bathroom, the pleasant scent of the little marine glow in the pretty and practical tin brings a touch of exotic freshness to any room. Fact on the side: The wax of the Lofoten Seaweed candle is made on a plant basis - namely from soy lecithin.
From Lofoten - Seaweed for well-being & pleasure
The Morlid candle is a product of the Norwegian company Lofoten Seaweed, which was founded in 2016 by the two power women Tamara and Angelita. In the beginning, there was the idea to use the previously unused food Seaweed, which grows with the two Norwegian women in the crystal clear, Arctic waters right outside their front door. This is because algae and seaweed are natural, sustainable and, above all, underwater plants that grow back without any additional effort and are rich in vitamins and minerals. Depending on the type of algae, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, vitamin B, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B5 or even phosphorus and potassium, but also trace elements such as copper, selenium, manganese and folic acid can be found in the underwater all-round talents. By the way, Seaweed is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and proteins. In addition, Seaweed also tastes excellent. Not only Japanese cuisine has appreciated this for a long time, but also more and more European top chefs are discovering the flavorful Seaweed variety, ranging from sweet to truffle, for their creations. With Lofoten Seaweed products, smart food is finally coming to all kitchens and every home.
In 2016 the two friendly women Angelita Eriksen and Tamara Singer founded their startup Lofoten Seaweed. Their idea was to exploit the untapped potential of seaweed, which grows wild off the coasts of Lofoten - raw in its dried state and finely ground in culinary combinations with sea salt, chocolate and pasta, but also as an ingredient in beauty products.
Tamara & Angelita: The two founders
Angelita was born in a small fishing village in Lofoten. Where her father was already a fisherman. Thanks to him, she knows the Arctic waters and coasts off Lofoten like the back of her hand. In New Zealand, at the other end of the world, Tamara's Japanese mother had algae and seaweed on her menu almost every day. A physiotherapy education in Australia, ten years of friendship and numerous journeys later, the two women developed their seaweed products - from the perfect interplay of Angelita's knowledge of the sea and Tamara's know-how of Japanese algae cuisine.
From Seaweed to Superfood
All underwater plants are wild-harvested by Tamara and Angelita. They are harvested directly by hand where they grow wild in the rough, crystal clear waters off the north Norwegian coast of Lofoten. Each individual leaf is then carefully checked and sorted again in the "factory". Only then are seaweed and algae - depending on the species between 12 and 48 hours - dried in a specially developed drying room.
The products of Lofoten Seaweed
Lofoten Seaweed's range is based on the various algae and seaweed varieties in their original, dried form. Finely ground, the product Simply Seaweed contains an exciting four-pack mix of Arctic Nori, Dulse, Sugar Kelp and Winged Kelp. Particularly popular because how to use salt are the various salt products that are flavored with seaweed: There is the Truffle Seaweed Salt, which gets a surprising truffle taste from the fine Trøffeltang. Taresalt, which is mixed with dried and ground Winged Kelp and Sugar Kelp. The salt called Lofoten Umami delivers what it promises: Umami - that hearty, full-bodied, fifth taste. The basis for this is the finest Norwegian sea salt, which is mixed with dried, ground Sugar Kelp, Arctic Nori, Winged Kelp and Dulse as well as flakes from the Lofoten stockfish. Sesame, sugar and vinegar are added. The Seaweed Pasta is a must for every pasta fan. In addition to the salty specialities, the Lofoten Seaweed range also includes two chocolates: A white chocolate with raspberries and Dulse and a dark chocolate with Sugar Kelp.
