Burning aromatherapy candles scented with pure essential oils is a wonderful way to add fragrance to a room. Not only does an aromatherapy candle smell nice, it can have therapeutic effects on the body and mind. Essential oils are extracted from certain aromatic plants and are used by aromatherapists to promote emotional and physical well being. When a few drops of a particular plant essence is added to a candle, its powerful aroma molecules are diffused into the surrounding air as the wax melts. When inhaled, the fragrance can help soothe and revitalize.

Aromatherapy scented candles can be made with oils from various types of plants. Aromatherapy essential oils can be made from different parts of plants, including flowers, berries, leaves and bark. As well as having a unique natural perfume, they have many different healing qualities. For instance, lavender is well known for its relaxing properties. When added to a jar candle, it can be used to create a soothing and peaceful atmosphere. The rich aroma of sandalwood can help ease feelings of anxiety and stress. As well as being used individually, oils can be used in blends to create uniquely fragranced candles. For example, a seasonal Christmas blend could include mandarin, cinnamon, clove or nutmeg. Or a refreshing mix of oils could include peppermint, lemon, rosemary or bergamot to help stimulate the senses.

For maximum aromatherapy benefits, candles should be made from natural based ingredients that don’t release toxins as they burn. Aromatherapy soy candles made from soybean wax are a popular option, as these are considered better for the environment than petroleum based candles. It’s worth reading the labels when buying a candle to make sure it contains pure aromatherapy oil and no synthetic fragrances or dyes. Using scented candles in the home is a simple but effective way of influencing the mood of a room, to create a tranquil and harmonious environment. Products such as candles, oil burners or other types of aromatherapy diffusers can make inexpensive gifts and offer a natural alternative to chemical air fresheners.

Adding aromatherapy candles to the home is a quick and easy way to enhance the atmosphere in a room and create a peaceful space to unwind in at the end of a busy day.

Beeswax candles are made from all natural ingredients made by honeybees. When bees eat honey, they produce this wax. Beekeepers filter the beeswax from the honeycombs, cool it and sell it for use in making candles. Beeswax candles are the most natural candles that you can buy. They are available as taper candles, votives, tea lights and pillar candles. For those with sensitive allergies, beeswax candles allow them to enjoy the warmth and beauty of a burning candle.

You don’t need to add any scent to a bees wax candle because the wax is naturally scented with honey. Therefore beeswax candles rarely have any additives and this includes color. The natural yellow color adds to the ambiance of a bees wax taper candle and the scent of honey will perfume the air. Like soy candles, bees wax candles burn longer and cleaner than paraffin candles. However, one of the disadvantages of using bees wax taper candles is that they cost more than soy or paraffin candles.

The wax used in making beeswax candles can vary from white to a light brown. In some cases, candle makers may add bleach to the wax to lighten the color of the bees wax. Candles that have been bleached may not have as much of a honey scent to them, but you won’t be able to smell the scent of bleach. The bleach also helps to filter the beeswax. A candle made from unfiltered bees wax may contain small bits of wood or even parts of the bees.

Over time, you may notice that there is a white powder on the outside of your beeswax candles. This does not mean that the bees wax candles are no longer any good. The development of this powder is a natural occurrence with beeswax taper candles and is called blooming. You can easily wipe the powder off of the beeswax candle. It is actually a good thing for this to happen because it will tell you that your bees wax taper candles have been made from pure beeswax.

If you like making your own candles, beeswax candles are the easiest ones to make at home. Beeswax is sold in sheets and you don’t have to bother with any additives, colors or candle scents. The bees wax that you buy is already filtered so you don’t need to bother with bleaching it. All you have to do is melt down the bees wax and pour it into your molds to have the perfect beeswax candles.

Beautify your home decor with scented and unscented candles with these quick candle tips….

candles, scented candles, unscented candle, taper, pillar, globe candles, votives, tealight candle

Candles create a warm beauty in your home like no other home decor accessory. They light up the room and set the mood with colors or scents of flowers, foods, or spices. They illuminate the seasons or holidays with delightful smells. Let’s explore some creative ways to spruce up your home decor with candles.

Create Multi-Dimensional Focal Points in a Room

Candles come in a variety of sizes and heights. There are wide, short, tall, thin, and medium sized candles of all different colors. You can arrange candles of different heights and sizes to create dimensional focal points on a table, fireplace mantle, mirror shelf, or wherever candles will fit. Place the candles from the smallest to the largest in groups of three to five candles to create an appealing display.

Use Candles to Enhance Other Decor Items

Floral arrangements, photos, paintings, and figurines seem to come to life when a candle is nearby. Light the candles in the evening to illuminate special centerpieces. Taper candles, pillar candles, or globe candles work great for highlighting other eye-catching items of your decor.

Set the Mood with Candles

In a romantic setting, add votives around a hot tub, bath, or bedroom to set the mood. For best results and longer burning times, always use votive holders. Use multiple votives of the same or various colors to create a more elaborate candle setting. For holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, set the mood for your gatherings with scented candles. Some great scents for the holidays are cinnamon, vanilla, apple, cranberry, cookies, and other holiday delights.

For parties, buy scented or unscented candles that are colorful and fit for the occasion. Brighten an anniversary party with white, green, or beige candles, which are decorative without drawing too much attention. Use pink or blue candles for kids’ parties. Red, orange, green, white, or beige candles work well for the holidays. For a poolside party, use floating tealight candles to light up the pool and dazzle your guests.

Crafty Candles

If you enjoy decorating your home with homemade crafts, candles can also be used to create your own crafts. You can decorate plain candles any way you want. You can also tie ribbons around several candles to bind them in a decorative pose. Use saucers, flowerpots, old lanterns, and so forth to create your own unique candleholders. Create the type of decor you want in every room with a little creativity.

Candle Safety Tips

Before lighting a candle, be sure the candle is in a proper holder for burning. Also, never set the candle on a wood or plastic surface. Candleholders can become extremely hot after burning a while. Place burning candles on a metal surface if possible. For a safer way to enjoy scented or unscented candles, use a candle warmer. Candle warmers melt the candle while giving off its maximum scent. Warmers also enable you to use the candle longer without burning it up. Just make sure the warmer is placed on a non-flammable surface such as metal. Keep an eye on candles and never leave them unattended for long periods of time. Also, never place a burning candle too close to flammable objects such as silk flowers, cloth or clothes, or a hanging coat.

Blend colorful, sweet smelling candles throughout your decor to add beauty to every room of your home. You can find a variety of scented candles, unscented candles, votives, tealights, globe candles, taper candles, and pillar candles online to suit your needs.

This video is about how to make soy candles at home using essential oils and everyday household items. Links to the items I used are below:

https://cozybogie.com/2016/04/16/scented-soy-candles/

To get started, you will need the following (All items purchased from Amazon):

Bag of soy flakes (wax) – I used 444 blend – https://amzn.to/2PNDaO3

Heatproof melting pot – https://amzn.to/2RHDjQi

Thermometer – https://amzn.to/2REo9va

Glass jars – https://amzn.to/2JSP1VT

Wooden Wicks – https://amzn.to/2JSPp6N

Candle wicks: https://amzn.to/2JN8erY

For the 3 scent combinations in my video, I used the following essential oils:

Lavender – https://amzn.to/2REpt16

Rosemary – https://amzn.to/2DaYmae

Thyme – https://amzn.to/2JOzdDo

Bergamot – https://amzn.to/2ASskOl

Lemon – https://amzn.to/2JNsiub

Cedarwood – https://amzn.to/2ASLMLe

Fir – https://amzn.to/2JNIxHN

White Musk – https://amzn.to/2JMyfrk

Vetiver – https://amzn.to/2JOyPET

Sandalwood – https://amzn.to/2D4O6QJ

Jasmine – https://amzn.to/2F9ky6Z

Plastic drinking straw
Clothespins
Disposable spoons
Tablespoon measure
Mixing bowl
Essential oils

Paper towels
Directions (for one 8 ounce candle):

Heat a medium pot of water to a boil and add melting pot. To the melting pot, add your wax. For the wax: 2 cups (16 ounces) of solid wax = 1 cup (8 ounces) melted wax, so for three 8 ounce candles, I used 6 cups of solid wax (48 ounces).
Once the wax starts melting, use your spoon to take a few drops of wax and add to the bottom of your jars. This will be the “glue” you use to secure the bottom of your wicks to the bottom of your jar. Act quickly because the wax hardens immediately!
Use clothespin to secure the cotton wick to the center of the jar. If using wooden wicks, no need to secure it (it will stay in place due to its rigid shape).
Once the wax is melted to at least 180 degrees, reduce the heat on the stove so that the wax will stay at a constant temperature. Melting the wax to 180 degrees makes sure that the wax will stay warm enough when poured into the mixing bowl.
Pour 1 cup of melted wax into the bowl and add your desired scent.
Lavender/Rosemary/Thyme: Add 1 tsp each of lavender and rosemary essential oils and 1/2 tsp of thyme essential oils.
Bergamot/Lemon/Cedar/Fir: Add equal parts bergamot, lemon, cedar, and fir essential oils to measure 1 tbsp total.
White Musk/Sandalwood/Vetiver/Jasmine: Add equal parts white musk and sandalwood, (around 1.5 tsp each) and then add 10 drops each of vetiver and jasmine.
Stir thoroughly for at least 30 seconds so that the essential oils bind to the wax and blend evenly throughout the mixture.
Pour slowly into prepared jar with the wick, and then leave undisturbed for at least 24 hours before moving/burning. Your candles will be ready to enjoyed after 24 hours!

Before you give a highly scented candle as a gift, you should first inquire about how this person feels about candles that are heavily scented. Depending on the scent you use, it may not matter whether or not the candle is highly scented. This is because some scents, such as vanilla and lavender, are mild and it doesn’t matter how much of the oil is used to make a highly scented candle. Other stronger scents may be harder to take in high doses, which is why you do need to be careful about giving a highly scented candle to someone that is sensitive to scents.

Some of the scents used in making a highly scented candle do not smell like flowers or earthy aromas. Try a heavily scented candle with the aroma of angel food cake. This particular scent has undertones of cherry to produce a great aroma in your kitchen. Since the scent of home baked goodies rarely bothers anyone, this is one type of heavily scented candle that you can use freely. Get a hint of Grandma’s kitchen with candles scented with hot baked apple pie. This is one of the scents that will surely take you back to the days of your childhood.

Heavily scented candles in aromatherapy candles are perfect for the healing properties that they bring to the mind, body and spirit. Whether you are seeking relief from stress, a headache or you want to create the perfect romantic atmosphere, a highly scented candle with one of the essential oils is the way to achieve your objective. Whether the heavily scented candle is made from paraffin or soy wax, you know that you will get the scent you want.

Just walking through the aisle of the store with a variety of highly scented candles will give you an idea of the various scents that these candles give off. If you have to pick up the candle to tell whether or not it is scented, then you should realize that it is not really heavily scented. The proper heavily scented candle will allow you to get the scent from even standing a distance away from it.

When choosing the scents to make a highly scented candle, you cannot go by the fill level on the bottle. This is because the different scents have different weights. For example, mulberry is very light, whereas a caramel essential oil is really heavy. When working with essential oils to make highly scented candles, you have to make sure the area is well ventilated. Some of the oils will irritate your skin if you happen to come in contact with the full strength oil. Wash your skin immediately with soap and water and that should so the trick.
