DIY Essential Oil Candle
Ever since I got my Essential Oil Starter kit— I’ve been making ALL sorts of natural products… and it is really exciting! (I plan to share more items in the future) I love all of the oils that I got with my starter kit but there are three in particular that really help me throughout the day. These essential oil products lift my mood and are overall amazing!! They boost your health through aromatherapy.
I like to burn this candle at my desk while I am working like typing up articles like this! It really helps to keep me motivated and energized.
Here’s what you will need to get started.
1. Fill Up Your Glass Container
Using the wax fillings we have just bought here, fill up your glass containers or mason jars to the top. It’s okay if it overflows a bit.
2. Melt the Wax
Now you’ll just need to melt the wax inside the glass mason jar so that it forms nicely into the jar itself. You can use a microwave for this step (as I did). It should only take a few minutes.
Caution: make sure you grab the glass jar with some kitchen gloves or mittens. My favorite one to use that helps with the heat is from Big Red House. Once again be careful!
3. Add Essential Oil
Add drops of essential oils that I’ve mentioned above while the wax is still melted. This way it can mix evenly and throughout the whole candle. Don’t add too much, a little essential oil goes a long way.
4. Placing the Wick
The last part of the DIY essential oil candle project is to add the wick in the glass mason jar. Place it in the candle wax as the wax continues to firm up and you’ll have yourself an essential oils candles ready to burn the next time around!
Enjoy burning your new essential oil candle!
