DIY Essential Oil Candle

Do you use essential oils in your home? Ever made your own DIY essential oil candle? We have been for some time now and I get so giddy when I learn about a new way to use them. We have first hand seen the benefits of them and can’t see our lives without them.

We have used them to increase energy, relieve stress, enhance concentration and even manage pain. There are some people who are able to discontinue over the counter medication altogether.

Whatever you use them for, whichever you use, you should try a DIY Essential Oil Candle! They are beyond fantastic. I love that you can customize the scent to fit your desires or needs and they are healthier than the fake scents that you would buy in the store.

There may even be health benefits to having essential oils in candles. This post I am using Orange and Lemon essential oils, but you can basically use whichever ones you would like.

As you can tell, there are a lot of great benefits to having essential oil candles in the house. Not only do they smell great, but I love knowing that I’ve made the candles myself and the scent is natural and not harmful to all the noses that are breathing it in.

We also love to make these essential oil candles for others as well. They’re great for gifts or to just let someone know that you’re thinking of them. And since most people aren’t familiar with how to make their own candles, they’re going to love that you did this DIY just for them!

This simple essential oil candle recipe allows you to make something wonderful for your own home as well as give the gift to others, too.

Don’t forget to wrap it up with some nice paper and ribbon to really present quite the lovely homemade gift!

Make certain that you’re accurately measuring out all your ingredients. This is a lot like baking in the fact that you want things to be as accurate as possible so it sets up correctly.

Adding essential oils is always my favorite part. I just love how they smell and it’s just a great scent.

If you’re worried that the wick isn’t going to stay in place, don’t. It will be just fine and stay right where it needs to be. If for some reason it doesn’t, just realign it.

Your wick is going to be longer than your mason jar so just trim it to whatever height works best.
