Essential Oils for DIY Candle Making

Scented candles are all the rage in the world of aromatherapy. Some believe that scented candles are a luxury that not everyone can afford. So, Majestic Pure has the perfect solution for you – candle making with essential oils! 

The process of candle-making itself can be incredibly therapeutic, especially if you are one to enjoy DIY projects. Moreover, candle-making is an art that, when mastered, can reap amazing results. Not only will you be able to pick up a new skill to show off to all your loved ones, but you can spread the joy of a lovely fragranced candle in your own circle. 

Here’s how you can use essential oils for candle-making. Let’s get you started! 

How to Use Essential Oils for DIY Holiday Candle-Making 

Candle-making is completely foolproof, not to mention easy. To make candles at home, you will not only 10 items that you can find in your kitchen cabinet: 

  • Candle wax
  • Containers 
  • Measuring cups 
  • Essential oils of your choice 
  • Thermometer 
  • Candle wicks 
  • Boiler 
  • Wooden spoon 
  • Microwave 
  • Bowl 

How to Use Essential Oils for DIY Holiday Candle-Making

Now that you’ve assembled all these items, it’s time to get candle-making! The first step is to blend your essential oils. The key to this step is marrying the right scents together in a fragrant blend. In a bowl, mix your preferred essential oils together. Measure the ratio of essential oils needed to the size of your candle container. 

Once you’ve made the blend, place it in a container. Then, melt your wax into the container, blending it all in well together. This is where the thermometer will come in handy. Melt the wax till it reaches 180 degrees. Once this is done, pour the wax into the containers when it cools down to 160 degrees. Then, the candle wicks can be added. Voila! Your own personal scented candle is ready to be lit and enjoyed!
