D-n-D Ranch Aromas Sponsor Spotlight Review

I was fortunate enough recently to get to review a candle from D-n-D Ranch Aromas and it was their 8 oz. Lilac Blooms in a tin candle. It matches my blog, doesn't it? I love the colors of lavender and shades of purple and pink so I loved the scene on the candle and was quite impressed with how well made the whole outside and inside package was made. You could tell alot of hard work had gone into making everything look wonderful.

I had to give the candle to my daughter, who loves the smell of Lilacs. She said it took forever for it to burn completely away and that she loved the scent and said she got alot of compliments on how nice her kitchen smelled. There are very few scents that don't agree with me and Lilac happens to be one of them. For some odd reason, it gives me a splitting headache and it will take me several days to get over but it does not affect my daughter and she has had Lilac candles before and she always makes sure they are turned off when I visit!

It was not D-n-D Ranch Aroma's fault, I just wasn't thinking and did not mention that scent. I think I did give them gardenia and jasmine or maybe I didn't but if I did, then I just did not think to tell them about Lilac. Those are the only 3 scents that I cannot tolerate on candles, sprays, perfumes, room freshners, etc. I think it is gardenia that will actually have me sneezing in fits along with the headaches. I do have spring allergies like pollen in the spring, so you don't see me much outside at that time of year.
It is beautifully packaged and I loved the colors, I just could not burn it in my house. D-n-D Ranch Aromas have so many scents to choose from it will just blow your mind what they have. They also have other items besides candles also. They also make some awesome homemade soaps and here is a look at a few of them:

She calls these Colorado Gold-Rectangle. There are alot more to check out so when you follow the link above, just look around and see all the wonderful looking soaps with their unique names and scents. They also have several scents in the Caromas Air Freshners so if that is your thing, go check out what they have for you!

They also have a Candle of the Month club and if you wanted to join that you could get a different candle delivered right to your door each month. They will also help with fundraising events and try to help out as much as they can. You can personalize or customize your candles to make unique gifts that fit each person. They also have different options as to how your candle can be made; like in the tins, jars, tea lights, soy wax melts, etc. Whatever suits your fancy, can easily be made if you just communicate what it is you are looking for and hoping to achieve.

Thought you might want to see how their shop looks so I copied it and brought it on over. Gives the place a homey feel, doesn't it? I love when old homes are made into businesses so that you feel welcome and not feel like you need to hunch up your shoulders for fear of the young ones breaking something in one of the fancy shops. I will take the hometown looking shop over that any day of the week. You can check their Testimonials section to see what everyone else thought about their candles and such if you don't believe me.

Mary Bearden personally reviewed these products. I did not receive any monetary compensation for my review, just a sample product. All opinions are mine and belong to me solely. My thoughts and opinions may differ from yours. All of the pictures were from D-n-D Ranch Aroma's site except for the very top picture came from my old cranky camera. You can definitely see the color change between my picture and their pictures!

After my first pregnancy I absolutely hated the smell of lavender but now I can't get enough of this relaxing scent, so Limoges' Luscious Lavender would be the scent for me!
