Orchard Harvest Review

When my daughter was a baby she was born with respiratory problems that soon developed into severe asthma. I began to research and realized that all the petroleum based soot candles in my home had to go immediately. I was disappointed because I love candles…..there is something so calming and relaxing about having a beautifully lit and scented candle. After searching for a safe and non-toxic candle source, I am so excited to share Orchard Harvest with you because they have the most amazing all natural wax candles and lighting.

Orchard Harvest candles are made of soy, palm and vegetable wax and use only Premium Grade fresh & earthy fragrances, Essential Oils and cotton wicks. I love how long lasting the burn time is with natural candles with some up to 40-60 hours. I love the simple and natural “Filled Clear Glass Holder” candles because it fits in well with every décor. The Winter Splendor scent is amazing…….I could smell the fresh earthy seasonal scent the moment I opened the package and my children said “Where is the Christmas smell coming from……?” I really love that the scent is not overpowering at all but when the candle is lit the house just has the most wonderful smell. My favorite scent is the Cranberry Orange candle which is just delicious smelling and is like a burst of fresh fruit. The candles burn very clean with no soot residue.

The Essential Oil candles with Lavender, Lime, Rosemary, Spearmint, Orange and more sound wonderful and I love the fact that it is scented with natural essential oils. The frosted metro glass containers are really pretty too and come in sizes to fit every budget.

Here is an interesting product that I have never seen before…..the Halo Warming Lamp! This is an Orchard Harvest exclusive and is a multifunctional lamp and candle warmer that keeps beverages warm, warms fragrance oils and releases fragrance from wickless candles. It is designed for use without a flame which is great with children around, dorm rooms and offices. What a unique and neat gift idea that is sure to be appreciated. The Halo Warming Lamp and Warming Stone set is on sale right now for a great price, $35.40 from the original price of $44.25 so it is a wonderful way to try this out and save money too.

Orchard Harvest Candle Company was started by Mary Wisniewski and was inspired by the family farms and orchards in Western Michigan. The quality of the Orchard Harvest candles that I sampled are superior and it felt as though Mary had sent me a “piece of her orchard” from the Great Lakes.

To purchase your favorite candles or the exclusive Warming Lamp visit Orchard Harvest.
