As a lover of Yankee Candles, I have always wanted to try home-made scented candles. It’s so simple and the result is absolutely beyond expectations. I used a fair amount of essential oils, so they smell really beautiful and the vegetable wax with natural scents is a lot healthier and greener option compared to paraffin. Try it!
- soybean or other vegetable wax, possibly beeswax
- a favorite essential oil or their blend – I combined lavender and lemon grass
- glass jars
- cotton wicks
- pot and hot water bowl
- skewers or pegs to secure the wick
