Ralph's Orchard create eco-friendly vegan candles. Our scented soy wax creations are hand-poured into glassware and fine bone china (and sometimes seashells!) to create unique upcycled candles.
Hi there, My name is Jo, and I'm the owner and candle maker at Ralph's Orchard. I love creating scented soy wax candles in quirky and elegant containers. My candles can light up your world and fill your room with wonderful fragrance. The concept for Ralph’s Orchard started as a little seed when my youngest (and namesake of the company) started showing signs of respiratory difficulty and in spending fraught time researching, I realised how bad paraffin candles could be to the air we breathe in our own homes. It seemed my love for my offspring and for candles were incompatible, or were they? Ralph’s Orchard eco friendly vegan candles were born 😊 I want my children to love the planet and see the natural wonders I have been so lucky to experience, and so to do my part I use only vegan and eco-friendly and cruelty-free ingredients in all my quirky upcycled candles and luxury bath salts. Soy wax is environmentally friendly and more sustainable than paraffin wax. It is biodegradable and burns cleaner resulting in much fewer soot particles in the air. Soy wax also burns slower as it has a lower melting point, so your candles will last much longer. Our wicks are made from organic cotton and are eco-friendly, lead free, non toxic, paraffin free, and contain no zinc or other metals. They are dipped in organic soy wax are smokeless and slow-burning. Your home is your haven and you can feel truly relaxed and contented when lighting one of my luxury scented soy wax candles, whether while reading a book or watching tv on your own, celebrating an occasion, or entertaining family and friends. They come in a variety of upcycled containers, from elegant to funky and outdoorsy. The candles all have wonderful scents which will throw lashings of fragrance into any room, large or small. I hope you love my candles and that they bring peace and calm into your home and to your loved ones. xx Jo
