The homemade recipe for making natural scented candles

Scented candles are a great gift to make. 

It is also a nice decorative element. 

In addition, it smells good! Unfortunately, they are often very expensive. 

I don't know about you, but my budget doesn't allow spending hundreds of euros a year on scented candles. 

This is why I am super happy to have found a more economical and more ecological alternative: to make them myself without chemicals!

I feel that my madness for scented candles is not about to die out.


Ingredients and materials

- Wax pellets

- Prechaired candle wicks with support.

- Containers to hold the candles (for example small glass jars)

- Essential oils to perfume according to your tastes

- 1 glass dosing container (with a spout if possible)

- 1 pan

- Skewers

- Scotch

- Scissors

How to do


1. Put the wicks in place




Place the metal piece at the base of the wick in the bottom of your small pot. 

Then take a skewer and tape the other end of the wick with a skewer. 

The wick must be pulled well and straight. 

Place the skewer crosswise on top of your container and leave the wick straight.


2. Measure the amount of wax

Take the jar that will serve as a container for the candle. 

Measure the exact capacity of the container by putting water in it. 

Pour the water into the measuring cup. 

Thanks to this trick, you now know the exact capacity of the pot and can measure it. 

Take the wax tablet. 

Measure the equivalent of a double capacity of the pot. 

For example, if the capacity of the jar was 50 ml, prepare 100 ml of wax.


3. Melt the wax in a double boiler




Half fill your pan with water. 

Then put the glass container that contains the wax flakes in this water. 

If you can, put them directly into the dispenser with the spout. 

Make sure that water does not get into the container. 

Then heat over medium heat. Use a metal spoon or spatula to stir the wax. 

Once the wax is completely melted, remove it from the pan.


4. Perfume and color the candle

We must now choose the strength of the perfume. 

If you want a moderately scented candle, add about 10 drops of essential oil per 450 g of wax. 

If you want your candle to feel stronger, add several more drops. 

You can also color your candle by putting a few drops of food coloring. 

Remember to stir so that the products mix well.


5. Pour the wax




Put your jars in a place where you can leave them without touching them for a few hours. 

Do not touch the pots when the wax is hot! Then, hold the skewer firmly while you pour the wax into the container. 

It is best to use the container with a spout. 

Pour at the desired height.


6. Let cool

Let the wax cool and freeze for about 3 to 4 hours. 

It is best to leave it at room temperature: this prevents the wax from cracking.


Result

And here you are, you have made a natural scented candle without chemicals. 

You just have to light it to enjoy it.
