How To Make Your Own Scented Candles

I've always wanted to learn to make my own candles. I love scented candles and I love lighting them as the dim light and the fragrant create a romantic ambiance, particularly in the bedroom.

To make your own candle, you'll need some basic candle making supplies. You'll need to have access to heat, like a stove. You'll also need to have a melting pot for melting the candle wax. You can use soy wax for this. Depending on the type of wax you're using, you'll need a candle wick. Then, you'll need some candle jars to put the melted wax for it to harden. Candle jars are available in various sizes and again, it depends on your preference.

As a finishing touch, you might want to add a few drops of fragrance oil or aromatherapy oil into your melted candle. Aromatherapy oil is also called essence oil. There are many different scents available in the market, and different scents will ignite different moods. Choose the one that will give the effect that you like, for example, lavender for candles lighted in the bedroom. Lavender scent will calm you down, helps you relax and helps you sleep better.

Aren't you excited to try making your own candles? Just take the necessary safety precautions and be extra careful because you will be handling heat and fire. Have fun!
