Create Your Own Essential Oil

Have you ever dreamt of crafting your own personalised Artisan Essential Oil blend? We've turned this dream into reality. Every blend is carefully hand-blended and prepared to order, tailoring a sensory experience as unique as you.

Choose from our expertly curated blends or explore your creativity. Delve into the essence of up to three handpicked ingredients. It's an opportunity to let your intuition guide you.

  1. Melt the wax: Using a double boiler, melt one or two unscented candles over a low heat. Ensure that the temperature remains below 185°F (85°C) to prevent breaking down the beneficial properties of the essential oils.
  2. Prepare the wick: While your wax is melting, attach the wick to the wick holder and secure it to the bottom of your desired candle container.
  3. Add the essential oils: Remove the melted wax from heat and allow it to cool slightly before adding your chosen essential oils. For one candle, use approximately 30-50 drops or 1-1.5 teaspoons of essential oil, depending on the desired strength of the fragrance.
  4. Pour the mixture: Slowly pour the wax and essential oil mixture into the prepared container with the wick, taking care not to displace the wick. Allow space at the top for the candle to solidify.
  5. Let it set: Allow the candle to set and cool completely (at least 4-6 hours).
  6. Trim the wick: Once the candle has hardened, trim the wick to approximately ¼ inch (0.6 cm) to ensure even burning and reduce soot formation.

Scent Candles With Essential Oils Example:

For a calming and relaxing candle, use the following essential oil blend:

  • 10 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) for stress relief and tranquility
