Research & Development

Do you have custom fragrances you would like us to use in your personal candle line? At Harbor Mill Candles, our goal is to provide you with the utmost care and safety when manufacturing your candles. There are many factors considered when producing a candle involving the correct jars, fragrances and/or essential oils as well as the appropriate wicks. It is essential to test each new line of candles prior to making it available for sale to the general public.
