How to add global CSS to Gatsby with Emotion

January 24, 2021 by @benborgers

By default, CSS you add with Emotion is scoped to the component where it was added.

To add global CSS, use the Global component provided by Emotion:

import React from "react"
import { css, Global } from "@emotion/core"

export default () => {
  return (
        * {
          font-family: Helvetica, sans-serif;

The CSS written in the styles prop of Global will be injected globally into your Gatsby site.
