Creating Comfort with Scented Candles

If you prefer a more tangible source of cosiness, consider making your own scented candles using essential oils. Candles, with their soothing flickering lights, play a significant role in creating the perfect vibe.

  1. Gather your supplies:
    • Candle wax (soy, beeswax, or paraffin)
    • Candle wicks
    • Essential oils of your choice
    • Candle moulds or containers
    • Double boiler or microwave-safe container
  2. Melt the wax: Use your double boiler or microwave-safe container to melt the candle wax.
  3. Add essential oils: Once the wax is melted, add your chosen essential oils to the melted wax and stir well. You can create your own unique blends based on your preferences.
  4. Prepare the wicks: Attach the wicks to the bottom of your candle moulds or containers. Make sure they are centred.
  5. Pour the wax: Carefully pour the scented wax into the moulds or containers.
  6. Let it cool: Allow the candles to cool and harden completely.
  7. Trim the wicks: Trim the wicks to the desired length and light your homemade candles to enjoy the cosy ambiance.
