Weekend Project: Make Your Own Essential Oil Candle
November 24, 2017
Who doesn’t love candles? They’re great to have around and make any space smell amazing. Let’s not forget aromatherapy! Your candle scent of choice can change your mood from stressed to relaxed in no time! Unfortunately, candles can be quite expensive. That’s why you should consider making your own. Here’s a few simple steps to make DIY essential oil candles.
You only need a few ingredients for this project. Grab some beeswax or soy wax pellets, essential oils, and candle wicks, and some glass containers like mason jars. Pour some of the wax pellets in a glass container, and melt them down in the microwave. Keep filling the container with flakes and heating at minute intervals until fully melted. Make sure to keep a close watch!
Next, drop in the essential oils in the melted wax for a custom scent. Then place the wick in the middle of the glass container. Let it cool, and there you have it!
There are tons of recipes out there for you to recreate, or you can keep experimenting on your own until you find your perfect scent combo. Have fun!
