Scented candles are easy — and cheap! — to make. You can get all the materials online, or at your local craft store, and you can buy candle fragrances online, too, in small or large batches.

Smell is one of our most powerful senses, with the ability to evoke nostalgia, whet your appetite or instil calm. Everything you need to make them is available online, and affordable too, but a lot of this stuff you will have at home. Once you nail this recipe, they will be your go-to gift, as you can personalise the scents.


  • Heat-resistant pouring pitcher (I use a 4 lb. aluminum one)
  • Old saucepan
  • 8 oz. canning jars
  • Cooking thermometer
  • Soy wax flakes
  • Candle wicks
  • Fragrance or essential oils (I use 1 oz. bottles I buy from
  • Pencils or chopsticks (to hold wicks in place)

1. Prepare materials

You need wax melting pots, glass cups, glass stirring rods, small induction cookers, candles, molds, candle leads or wax cores

2. Wax melting

Add the prepared soybean wax (or beeswax or paraffin wax) into the wax melting pot. A larger pot of water should be added outside the wax melting pot to melt it in water to prevent the wax liquid from being burnt due to excessive temperature.

3、Fill into the cup

Pour the melted wax into the glass. During wax melting, pay attention to that the small manufacturing temperature should not be too high, and the difference between the small manufacturing temperature and the room temperature should be as small as possible. If the difference between the small manufacturing temperature and the room temperature is too large, cracks on the wax surface will occur during solidification and cooling

4、 Drip in essential oil

Drop the essential oil with the flavor you like into the wax liquid, and stir it with a glass rod. The proportion can be controlled at about 5% to have a fragrance.

5、 Decorative embellishment

Dried flowers can be used for decoration. Of course, decorations can be made according to personal preferences, such as peel and branches.

6、 Production completed

The finished aromatic candle can be used for lighting or decoration.
