My name is Lesleyanne Andrews, Orchard was founded by me,
in 2018, making soy wax candles as an alternative to buying traditional paraffin counterparts.
I had very real concerns about the impact of paraffin candles had on the environment and on my families health.
So, from my home studio in Cheshire, I set about producing a natural, healthy and conscientious alternative originally for personal use ..... From there grew an Orchard
Orchard candles are 100% soy wax and all our fragrance oils are manufactured in Europe to IFRA Standards.Our fragrances are all Phthalates and Paraben free and are suitable for vegans.
Our wicks are made from cotton and supported with linen stability threads.
We have no additives, dyes or glittery bits and all of our outer packaging is 100% recyclable.
Our labels are 100% paper, our honey jars and tins are reusable..... WE ARE PLASTIC FREE
You may like the absolute perfection that comes from the mass produced factory based products –
Our Soy wax candles have been blended and poured by hand, by me....which means sometimes due to the nature of natural wax, the surface is slightly uneven or there may be an occasional air bubble, None of this affects the quality of the burn in any way and we think just adds to the charm of the hand poured candle .
I set out to produce candles that were eco-friendly, artisan produced and above all, fabulous value for money ...I hope you'll agree... I've achieved my goal.
