Essential Oils for DIY Candles
Natural Fragrances for Homemade Candles
We all love scented candles; in fact, they’re a very popular and much appreciated gift for any occasion. Scented candles are great for setting the mood. Smells have a deep connection to our mood and memories, and that’s why certain smells can relax or energize. The right scent can help turn a bad day around, or make a good day even better.
Most of all, we want to make sure our customers have lots of options so they can choose what’s right for them, their families, and their customers. These essential oils are a natural way to add a true-to-life scent to your homemade candles.
We’ve selected these essential oils for candle making because they work well in candles. They don’t fade easily in candle wax, even after curing. They also create steady, wonderful scent with great scent throw. They won’t negatively impact the burn time or burn quality of your DIY candles.
Because essential oils offer a true-to-life scent, they can seem a little one-note. That’s not really a problem, though. If you’re looking for more complex scents, essential oils blend well. That means you can mix floral with spicy and fresh with woody; whatever sparks your creativity. The options are almost endless. Create your own signature scent that suits your tastes.
Use peppermint to refresh and energize. Use cedarwood for a warm, cozy smell. Lavender essential oil is relaxing, but it also creates a fresh and clean scent. Whatever mood you want to set, there’s an essential oil that’s perfect for it.
