It’s candle season! There is nothing more amazing than sitting under a warm blanket and reading a book with a fall scented candle going. But most high-quality candles cost an arm and a leg these days. So how do you fill your home with the delicious scent of cinnamon, orange, and evergreen without breaking the budget? By making them yourself. Candle making can be inexpensive and fun! It can also be a great idea for getting a jump start on your holiday gifts.
This month’s Simply Earth Recipe Box has everything you need to get started making your own soy candles. All you need is a jar or tin and you’ll have your own beautiful candle in no time!
What You Need for Candle Making At Home
Once you have a few items on hand making candles at home is actually cheaper than store-bought. The return on investment is outstanding. Here is a list of the most common items you should have on hand.
- Soy Wax
- Tins or Jars (you can use small jelly jars as well)
- Essential Oils for scent
- Colorant (if you like)
- Double Boiler
Once you have everything you need just check out my video below and follow the DIY. The candle making DIY starts at the 13:41 mark. But you’re going to want to watch the whole video to check out my review of Simply Earth and to get your $40 off your second purchase coupon!
Simply Earth October Recipe Box Review
This month’s box is a great way to get started with learning how to make your own candles. There are also some amazing fall scents to make your home smell delicious. The box, as always, comes with 4 full-size essential oils. That alone makes it worth the cost of the subscription. The oils included are listed below with their properties.
- Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis): Uplifting scent. Helps with mood, sore muscles, aides digestion, and comforts. Also makes a wonderful degreaser.
- Cassia (Cinnamomum cassia): Supports immune system, helps with self-esteem, stimulates circulation, and relieves tight muscles.
- Focus (Cardamom, Frankincense, Eucalyptus, & Sweet Orange): Increases alertness and improves concentration.
- Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea): Uplifts, balances emotions, refreshes, muscle relief, relieves respiratory issues, may help relieve hiccups.
Also included are the 6 recipe cards that were created by a Certified Aromatherapist. Each recipe walks you through creating something with the oils included in the box. They also supply some of the extra items you need to make the recipes.
I have absolutely fallen in love with the Simply Earth Recipe Box. I prefer using a subscription method to build my essential oil library. Not having to worry about pushy sales people or not having someone to guide me with learning about essential oils is also a great reason to buy from Simply Earth. I know I am getting a great quality oil for a great price. They have GCMS reports on all of their single oils so you know you’re getting what you pay for. Plus, they donate 13% of their profits to help end human trafficking.
