As you may have seen on my Instagram page I m currently obsessed with cinnamon coffee, cinnamon chai latte, and the list goes on. I also have this soft spot for Fragrance candles these days and what could be better than a Cinnamon Candle. God I never knew cinnamon would taste soo good when I first tried it. You guys may be thinking I m insane, having cinnamon in everything around me but it’s fall and m getting all that cinnamon craving now. It’s Thursday and m posting a new post under #TheDiyThursday section. It’s all about DIY as m seeing candles everywhere as it’s cold and chilly now, instead of buying one I decided to make my own and that too with my favorite fall Fragrance CINNAMON. A little mixing, melting, pouring and there will be your own Fragrance Candle. We all know they are simple to make and don’t need much time. You only need to have patience while your wax is melting and when you’re waiting for it to cool down once you have poured it. Handmade candles are surprisingly customizable, there are many fragrance oil and colorants to choose from. Decorate your jar the way you like that’s completely optional. You can also use this quick, simple, and lovely handmade candle as a gift to give this holiday season. I love DIYs because they are cheap oooh yeah!! With that being said let’s get straight to the post.
Things you will need:
- Candle Wax (your choice)
- Appropriate size and type Candlewick
- Essential oil/Fragrance oil(i made mine)
- Glass Jars
- Hot glue gun
- Pencil(to hold your candle wick)
- Saucepan and a glass bowl (big enough to sit over the pot)
HOW TO MAKE:
- Heat water in a saucepan.
- Measure out your wax flakes. You need to have 2times a number of wax flakes than your jars’ ounces(i have used normal candle wax).
- Take a glass bowl and place it over the saucepan.
- Let the wax melt.(never leave melting wax unattended)
- Turn the stove to a low to medium heat.
- Test the consistency of the wax. When it melts allow it to cool a bit.
- Take the wax off the stove
- Add colorants to your candle.
- Add the essential oil now. (add colorants and oil as much as required)
- Secure your wick to the bottom of your jar using hot glue and hold it in place until it dries. Make sure it stands upright. (tie extra wick on pencil and place it on jar to hold wick in place)
- Pour your wax into a jar and allow it to cool.
- When your wax has cooled completely trim your wick to about 1/2”.
- And there you will have a lovely cinnamon fragrance candle.
Will be back with an amazing post. Do share your experience with me and what essential oils your tried. See you soon XOXO
