The Story Behind The Eylif Product

Ólöf Rún Tryggvadóttir is the founder of the brand Eylíf.

The idea of Eylif came from Ólöf’s desire to produce high-quality materials that are sourced in Iceland and come from natural resources. The brand Eylif makes it easier for people to access high-quality materials that are sustainably produced in Iceland. We foresee the expansion of Eylif products to foreign audiences, however, we will start by selling domestically. 

Ólöf’s passion for health was a springboard from which Eylif was created. People can maintain and improve their health by taking good care of their lifestyle and health.

Ólöf believes that people can be cured of many physical and mental conditions by changing their lifestyle habits.

The key factors for a healthy lifestyle is to have a good routine that works for you. We believe that a good routine needs to have a balance between:

    • Sleep: Getting enough sleep is one of the most important factors for good health.
    • Activity: Some type of activity daily is important.
    • Mind: A positive mindset is vital, the mind is very powerful and people can control their wellbeing with the right mindset and mindfulness.
    • Eating Habits: A healthy diet, that consists of nutritious and non-processed foods.

We recommend that people find what works best for them to improve their health because everyone is different and the same practices do not work for everyone. We have linked research articles from Harvard scholars that discuss health and solutions to various problems here.

Good Things Happen Slowly 

It takes time, cooperation, and advice from people to create a brand. The idea started in 2016, but the work and preparation began in early 2018 and took about two years to create and develop.
