Reviewing Lavender and Cranberry Apple fragrances!
Candles that contain pure, organic ingredients without any use of chemical additives or paraffin wax are difficult to find. Candles that are made with the use of paraffin wax may not seem so harmful because they are undetectable just by the looking and smelling the candle. So why is paraffin so bad for us?
Many candle companies choose to use paraffin due to its cost effectiveness and the ability to hold a slightly larger amount of fragrance. But paraffin is a petroleum by-product and the burning of paraffin can contribute to emission of pollution, which greatly affects your indoor air quality.
Thankfully, we came across a candle company called Madison Valley Candles that provides 100% all natural premium soy candles that are USDA certified organic, kosher and vegan. All Madison Valley Candle products are non-toxic, and since it’s made from all natural ingredients such as soybeans, their candles burn much cleaner and longer.
Today, we are reviewing Lavender and Cranberry Apple fragrances from Madison Valley Candles.
Both lavender and cranberry apple scented candles are best-sellers from Madison Valley Candles. So it wasn’t a surprise when we lit the candles and instantly fell in love with these fragrances ?
Lavender is not only a perfect summer fragrance but it’s commonly used in aromatherapy for its therapeutic attributes. We have tried countless lavender scented candles from all sorts of brands but this candle truly creates a tranquil, peaceful setting. We found that this candle is best to lit during a long, relaxing bath or a couple hours before bedtime because of lavender’s known medicinal properties to reduce stress and calm the mind. The hint of chamomile adds a touch of sweetness and it pairs well with soothing fragrance of lavender.
Cranberry Apple is a combination of tart cranberry, juicy red apples, and sprinkles of cinnamon sugar which is a fantastic seasonal candle for Autumn or Christmas. Just from the description of the scent, we were expecting heavy, overly sweet aroma of winter fruits but we were pleasantly surprised by how refreshing the fragrance ended up being. The apple scent was crisp and fresh, and the cranberries added just the right amount of tangy-ness to complete this juicy, fruity sensation. The sugared cinnamon spices paired perfectly with cranberry apple to add the hint of warmth to this divine fragrance.
Madison Valley Candles uses high concentrated pure essential oils to maximize the fragrance intensity. With that being said, each of us has a different fragrance sensitivity and not everyone prefers candles that smell overly intense. Madison Valley Candles has a “Soy Fragrance Strength Rating” on their website which allows you to see how strong each of their scents are.
Both Lavender and Cranberry Apple are on the highest level according to their fragrance rating, and we couldn’t agree more. The fragrances of both candles aren’t particularly noticeable when they are not lit, but they instantly fill up the room with their unique blend of intoxicating aroma as soon as you light up the wick.
