How To Make Candles With Essential Oils

As a lover of artisan essential oils, you've probably thought about incorporating your favorite scents into your daily life.

In this article, we will guide you through the process of making beautiful, fragrant candles infused with the therapeutic aromas of your Oshu Oils.

What You'll Need

1. Natural Wax

Choose a natural wax, such as soy, beeswax, or coconut wax, as your base. These options are eco-friendly and burn slower and cleaner than paraffin. They also have better scent throw, which allows the essential oils to disperse more efficiently.

2. Wicks

Cotton wicks are ideal for natural wax candles, as they burn clean and slow. Ensure the wick is the appropriate size for the diameter of your candle container.

3. Essential Oils

Select your favorite Oshu Oils essential oils for your candles. Whether you're seeking relaxation, energy, or balance, we have a blend that's perfect for you.

4. Candle Containers

5. Double Boiler

Melt the wax using a double boiler to maintain even, gentle heat.

6. Thermometer

Monitor the temperature of your melting wax with a thermometer to achieve the perfect consistency.

7. Stirring Utensil

Use a wooden spoon or heat-resistant silicone spatula to stir your wax and essential oils together.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Measure and Melt the Wax

Use a scale to measure the appropriate amount of wax for your chosen container. Melt the wax gently in your double boiler, keeping the temperature between 160-180°F (70-80°C).

Step 2: Attach the Wick

Dip the bottom of your wick in the melted wax and press it firmly onto the center of your container bottom. Use a clothespin or wick centering tool to hold the wick in place as your candle solidifies.

Step 3: Add Essential Oils

Once your wax has reached the desired temperature, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly. When the temperature is around 120-130°F (50-55°C), add your Oshu Oils essential oils. Aim for a ratio of about 6-10 drops of essential oil per 1 oz. of melted wax.

Step 4: Pour Wax into the Container

Slowly pour the wax and essential oil mixture into your container, ensuring the wick is centered.

Step 5: Let Your Candle Cool

Allow your candle to cool and solidify for at least 24 hours before trimming the wick to ¼ inch and lighting it.

How To Make Candles With Essential Oils Example:

Imagine creating a serene atmosphere in your home with a lavender and chamomile essential oil candle. Melt 8 oz. of soy wax in a double boiler and prepare a 4 oz. glass jar with your wick. Once your wax reaches 120-130°F, mix in 48-80 drops of Oshu Oils Lavender and Chamomile essential oils. Pour your fragrant wax mixture into the jar and let it set for 24 hours before enjoying your soothing masterpiece.
