Make Your Own Scented Candle03.12.2018
Wax-bead Scented Candle
With this, you’re going to be able to make your own candles in just a few minutes, with no hassle and no mess! They are called wax beads. Yes, wax beads. And all you do is put them in a container with a wick and a scent and you’re done! Here’s how to do it.
- Glass Jar Container
- Wax Beads (Buy from craft store)
- Wick (Buy from craft store)
- Essential Oil
Pour your wax beads into your container. If you’re doing multiple colours, make sure you use a spoon to even out the surface of one color before adding the next one.
Use your spoon to flatten and smooth the top once you have filled your container. Leave a little room at the top (an inch or two).
Push in your wick piece that you have hopefully trimmed down to size. If you are using a wick that has a metal piece at the bottom, then you will put it in your container first before adding the beads.
Take a dropper and drop in a few drops of the essential oil you want to use.
A couple of things to think about when making your own candles:
Be careful not to put too much wax in your container, and always be careful not to use too big of a wick for your container either. We don’t want to have any messes or fires! The container you use should be fire-resistant as well. Do not add your essential oil as the candle is lit, and use caution and care around flames…always!
Another thing to note about wicks:
Stay away from wicks that have a piece of metal in them (lead), as this puts toxins into the atmosphere. If you can go with a soy or bees wax, that’s the best option for a healthy home.
