Laila Majeed

FOUNDER OF GILGUZI & PAKTIOUS

I’m Laila and I’m originally from Afghanistan, though I now live with my family in the UK.

Since arriving here I have volunteered with Counterpoints Arts during Refugee Week, and I have completed a Masters degree in Finance & Financial Law, following my BA in Computer Science.

FEATURED PRODUCT

Rose Yard Candle - Large

This hand-poured beeswax candle is scented with natural dried rose oil for a light, floral fragrance.
GILGUZI (320 × 320px)

I set up Gilguzi in 2021 following my personal struggle to find suitable products for my sensitive skin. We provide a natural, organic skincare range that is environmentally friendly and never tested on animals. I also run Paktious, which is part of the Gilguzi brand – we sell natural eco wax candles that I make by hand at my home in London. Each scent is created using the highest quality essential oils and natural fragrances.
