Scenting Candles With Essential Oils

Elevate your candle game with the all-natural goodness of essential oils. Immerse yourself in the world of scented candles, crafted with the magic of essential oils to bring balance and harmony to your life. Let us take you on a fascinating and fragrant journey through scenting your candles with the therapeutic touch of Oshu Oils' artisan essential earth oils.

Why Scent Your Candles with Essential Oils?

By using essential oils to scent your candles, you not only add an enticing aroma but also harness the potential benefits of aromatherapy. Here’s why choosing essential oil-infused candles is a wise choice:

  • Therapeutic Effects: Essential oils carry various health benefits, such as stress relief, mood enhancement, better sleep, and more. Synthetic fragrances, on the other hand, may contain chemicals that could trigger allergies or respiratory issues.
  • Eco-Friendly: Essential oils are derived from natural, renewable sources, making them an environmentally friendly option for scenting candles.
  • Customizable: By using essential oils, you can create endless combinations of scents that align well with your mood or the ambiance you want to create.
  • Long-Lasting Aroma: Essential oils are known to retain their scent much longer in comparison to synthetic fragrances.

Choosing the Right Essential Oil for Your Candle

With a vast variety of essential oils available today, choosing the ideal one for your candles may be overwhelming. Keep the following points in mind:

  • Quality: Select high-quality, pure essential oils from a reputable brand like Oshu Oils. Watch out for oils that may have been diluted or synthetic versions that mimic natural scents.
  • Blend Category: Align your chosen scent with your intent. You can choose energizing, relaxing, or balancing essential oils, depending on your preferences and requirements.
  • Combination Scents: Experiment with blending multiple essential oils to create a unique and complex aroma for your candles. Oshu Oils offer expertly crafted blends that cater to various needs and preferences, making it easier for you to choose.

Creating Essential Oil Scented Candles

Now that you've picked your favorite essential oil or blend, it's time to bring your scented candles to life. You can use either soy wax or beeswax for your candles. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Melt the wax in a double boiler setup, ensuring a consistent and gentle heat.
  2. While the wax is melting, prepare the candle vessel by ensuring it is clean and dry. Add the wick by attaching it to the vessel's bottom using a small amount of melted wax.
  3. Monitor the wax temperature closely. Once it reaches the ideal temperature (usually around 185°F/85°C), remove it from heat.
  4. Allow the wax to cool slightly before adding the essential oils. Aim for a temperature range of 130-150°F (54-65°C). This prevents the essential oils from evaporating too quickly when added to the hot wax.
  5. Add the essential oils, using the recommended ratio of approximately 6% essential oil to the total wax weight. Stir the mixture gently and thoroughly to ensure the oils are evenly distributed.
  6. Slowly pour the wax mixture into the prepared candle vessel, holding the wick straight.
  7. Once the wax has solidified, trim the wick to 1/4 inch and let the candle cure for at least 24-48 hours before burning.
