Make Aromatherapy Candles

Below are some instructions that you will want to follow for aromatherapy candle makings.

Materials for Aromatherapy Candle Making

Candle wax, preferably soy candle for a more natural and environment-friendly effect.
Candle dyes (optional) for a more interesting candle making result.
Candle wicking
Essential oils
Heavy pot for melting wax
A suitable mold for your candle. Either a long tube, hollow at the center, or a bowl. You can even use a cup. Make sure that your candle making molds are flexible so that it will be easier to release the hardened candle.

Aromatherapy Candle Makings: Instructions

Place your required wax amount into the heavy pan and place it on the heat. Allow the pan to heat slowly until all the wax melts. Afterwards, add your dye. In candle making, it is important that you add the ingredients a small amount at a time. Then, dip the wick several times into the melted wax. Next, add a few drops of essential oils into the mixture, stirring gently. Finally, pour the mixture into the mold and wait for it to dry.
