Okkar saga / Our story



Nordic angan - Ilmbanki íslenskra jurta er rannsóknar- og þróunarverkefni sem snýr að því að fanga angan íslenskrar flóru. Við ferðumst um allt land, til sjávar og sveita, og söfnum plöntum til að eima úr þeim ilmkjarnaolíur. Olíurnar notum við svo til að miðla angan íslenskrar náttúru í gegnum hönnunartengdar upplifanir og hönnunarvöru Nordic angan, ásamt því að hýsa Ilmbanka íslenskra jurta.

We welcome you to Nordic Angan to experience a moment of calm in the often caotic and overwhelming everyday life. Take a Pause, You’re in the right place.

Nordic Angan is inspired by the arctic nature. We care for what surrounds us and celebrate a slow, conscious lifestyle. We believe in being connected to each other, in handshakes and the great stories behind the goods we choose for our homes. We travel around the country pick herbs and make essential oils by distilling and extracting fragrance from wildflowers, plants, bark, and tree trimmings. We only try our scents on Icelanders, never on animals. Our aim is to build a new fragrance library for the Nordic nature. 

 Nordic Angan is an ode to life in the Arctic. We believe the soul of a fragrance comes from the intention with which it is created and the attention with which it is prepared. May they fill your senses with delight and your mind with tranquility.
