About Luminara

Luminara is a global brand that continuously innovates and introduces new products to markets all over the world. It makes effective use of Disney Enterprises Inc. technology to create designer candles that produce a convincing flame-like effect. The company is headquartered in the state of Minnesota.

The Technology

The realistic flicker technology behind every Luminara candle has whimsical roots, having been inspired by the candles used in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction. The Luminara candle is powered by batteries, which in turn are connected to a small circuit board within the candle itself. The circuity from the board moves the magnet attached to the bottom of the candle’s flame, thus producing the random, highly realistic movements of the flame. An LED light is focused on the flame, giving it a warm and inviting glow. The end result is a candle that is safe to use where conventional candles are not.

Balsam Hill’s Luminara Candles

The Luminara candle is a testament to ingenuity and fine craftsmanship. Its premium quality makes it a perfect match with Balsam Hill’s effort towards providing customers with a picture-perfect home during the holidays and throughout the year.

Balsam Hill’s Luminara Flameless Battery-Operated Pillar Candle is made from real paraffin wax, enhances its beauty and realism. It comes with a universal remote that can control all Luminara flameless candles within a distance of 15 feet, and features a convenient timer function. This candle’s battery life is exceptional, lasting up to 500 hours.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

When artificial Christmas trees were first introduced, needles were made of PVC. This material is hard-pressed into thin pieces, then cut into fine, rectangular needle-like strips. The strands are then twisted between two strings of wire to outline the tree branches. Read This Entry
