The Art of DIY Aromatherapy Candles


Step into the magical world of DIY aromatherapy candles where the rich allure of homemade candles meets the subtle influence of essential oils. Perfect for setting a tranquil atmosphere at home or gifting to loved ones, this guide promises to be your beacon of light.

Aromatherapy vs. Scented Candles

Both types will envelop a room in fragrance, but their composition differs. Essential oils, nature's little secret, are derived from various parts of plants, giving them a wholesome aura. Fragrance oils, however, are man-made creations.

Crafting Safely

When crafting your masterpiece, always prioritize safety. Wax can be tricky to handle, and a few precautions will make the experience smoother:

  1. Work in a well-ventilated area, away from direct heat.
  2. Spread newspapers or protective sheets to catch any drips.
  3. Always monitor the wax's temperature.

Gathering Supplies

For your aromatic journey, you'll need:

  • Protective sheets or newspapers.
  • A burner and a double boiler setup.
  • Candle thermometer.
  • Stirring spoons.
  • Containers or molds.
  • Wicks.
  • Wick holder or a simple pencil.
  • Scissors.
  • Soy wax flakes - a sustainable choice over paraffin.
  • Essential oils of your choice for aroma.

Shopping for Quality

While embarking on your candle-making quest, quality should be at the forefront. Superior materials yield superior results. Look for reputable suppliers online and purchase fresh essential oils for the most vibrant aromas.

Crafting Your Candle

  1. Organize all your supplies.
  2. Decide on your preferred scent profile and ready the essential oils.
  3. Prep your containers by ensuring cleanliness and positioning the wick upright.
  4. Melt the wax flakes, maintaining a temperature between 140 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. After letting it cool for a few minutes, mix in the essential oils.
  6. Carefully pour the wax into the containers.
  7. Allow the candles to solidify. Patience is key!
  8. Trim the wick to an ideal length of one inch.
  9. Revel in the magic of your handcrafted aromatherapy candle!

Why Opt for DIY Aromatherapy Candles?

  • Unleash your creativity.
  • Cost-effective for candle aficionados.
  • A potential source of income.
  • Thoughtful, tailored gifts.
