Creating your candles is a great way to add a unique touch of ambience and aromatherapy to any room. It's easy and fun; you can customize the colours and scents that make your home smell amazing. Here are some tips on how to make DIY candles with essential oils.

First, gather all the materials you will need, such as candle wax (either beeswax or soy wax), essential oil of your choice, wick tab and wick, pot for melting the wax, thermometer, double boiler or slow cooker, glass container(s) for holding the melted wax. Ensure you have enough containers for each type of scent you plan on making.

Next, melt the wax slowly over low heat in either a double boiler or slow cooker until it reaches 180 degrees Fahrenheit (82 Celsius). Add 15 drops of your chosen essential oil per 1/2 cup of wax. Stir gently while adding the oil, so it blends evenly into the mixture. Place the wick tab inside each jar before pouring the melted wax using a ladle or spoon. Let cool completely before burning - depending on temperature and humidity levels; this could take up to 24 hours. Enjoy! 

Making candles with essential oils can be a fun and creative way to bring scent into your home. Not only are they beautiful, but you get the added benefit of aromatherapy! With just a few simple ingredients, you can create something that's uniquely yours.

The first step is to gather materials like soy wax flakes, wicks, containers for the finished candles, and any essential oil scents that appeal to you. Be sure to use heat-safe containers, so your candle doesn't crack or break when heated. Once everything is ready, melt the wax in a double boiler or microwave until it's completely liquid. Then add your chosen essential oil and stir it all together.

Finally, pour the hot wax mixture into the container and let it cool before using it. This process may take a few days as the wax needs time to set properly before lighting. When everything has solidified, trim the wick and enjoy your homemade candle!
