What better way to ring in fall than to fill your house with scents of the season! I love when my mom lights pumpkin spice or apple pie candles in my house. It makes the whole place smell so cozy and it makes me feel so happy that fall is coming! Here is how to make your very own fall flavored candles.
You will need:
- Pint jars
- Wick (you can buy this at any crafts store)
- 1 cup Beeswax
- 1 cup Coconut Oil
- Spices (I find mine at the dollar store)
Start by placing the wicks in the jars and tape the wicks to the bottom of the jars. If you use tape just make sure it’s secure. Take the tops of the wicks, cut them long, and wrap them around an old pencil and place in the centers of the jars.
Melt the beeswax, coconut oil, and a tablespoon of spices together. My suggestion is to use a jar and place a few inches of water in the saucepan. Then when the water heats up, the contents of the jar will heat up and melt. You don’t need the wax and oil to boil, just melt. Pour a small amount of wax into the very bottom of the jar and let it firm up so that the wick stays at the bottom. Then pour the rest of the wax in the jar until it’s full enough. Let the candles sit still until the wax re-hardens. Then you are ready to burn your candles!
Make one for your mom, your grandma, your aunt, pshh make one for you too! I love having candles burning around the house, don’t you?
