Orchard was founded in 2018 by me Lesleyanne making soy wax candles as an alternative to buying traditional paraffin counterparts.my background is far removed from candles, having been an NHS nurse since I was 16, the latter 20 years as an ICU nurse.
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.
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.

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 .
Your candle has a memory, so on the first burn,always allow your wax pool to reach the edge of the container.This will prevent drilling through the center of your candle
and maximize its life.
Trim wicks to 5mm (1/4") before you use your candle.This helps your candle to burn evenly and longer.In the event that your candle wick starts to smoke,extinguish your candle, trim and then relight it – never trim a burning candle.
Do not burn candles on or near anything potentially flammable.Glass jars get hot, never touch or move a burning candle. Ensure the surface it is on is heat resistant and never burn candles on a glass or marble surface. Leave at least 15cm (6") between burning candles. Never Leave a burning candle unattended.
Always keep candles well away from children and pets.
