Make A Scented Candle Yourself: Give Your Loved One Pleasure And Living Conditions!

Editor   November 24, 2017   Comments Off on Make A Scented Candle Yourself: Give Your Loved One Pleasure And Living Conditions!

The fragrances… they are able to put us into magical worlds in seconds or to send them back to bygone eras. A scent often reminds us of earlier childhood experiences or romantic evenings in front of the fireplace. The world of fragrances is simply everywhere and always present. That is why it is not just for Christmas, but also for all festivals of the year or just so always the right time to make a scented candle itself. This is too complicated and complicated? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that!

In principle, the whole thing works the same way as with normal DIY candles, as we have already mentioned in our article Pour candles have shown. Perfect for this: candle wax or old candles, soy wax and beeswax. The new thing about the scented candle itself is that you should add a few drops of scented oil when waxing.


Otherwise, you can give your creativity and imagination the go-ahead and decorate the finished DIY candle beautifully after the wax has set. Depending on the occasion and season, you can use wrapping paper, ribbons, string, small cones, berries or fir green, dry flowers and herbs. Many of them can even be put into the candle container before waxing and then serve as an original decorative effect.

You need:

  • Candle remnants or candle wax, soywax flakes
  • natural essential oils / fragrance oils of your choice
  • Candle wicks, preferably with a metal base
  • Crayons or wax sticks (optional) or food coloring
  • Mason jars, cans or cups, etc.
  • Wooden sticks, clothespins or kebab skewers

Make scented candle itself is very easy and great fun

And this is how it’s done:

Step 1:

Add the remains of candles, candle wax, soy or beeswax to a metal bowl or saucepan and slowly simmer over medium heat in a bain-marie. At this time fix the candle wick to the bottom of the jar / cup. For this you can fix the metal feet with some general purpose adhesive or with a few drops of wax. Use the shish kebab to attach the top of the wick in the center of the jar.

For smaller containers, the wick can also be fixed with a clothespin

The candle wick can also be wrapped around the wooden sticks

Step 2:

When the wax starts to liquefy, add about 20-30 drops of the chosen fragrance oil and stir well. If desired, add a piece of crayon or some food coloring and stir again.

You can also add the additives to the wax before melting

Be sure to melt the candle wax in a water bath!

Step 3:

Go over to the candle-pouring. Remove the jar of molten wax from the heat and pour gently and slowly into the glass or into the cup with the candle wick. Hold the shish kebab while doing so. Allow the wax to harden.

Step 4:

In about 3-4 hours, depending on the size of the candle, the wax of your scented candle is already solid and you can shorten the wick with scissors.

We recommend using soya wax and real herbs or spices
