When you visit a general store, you can see so many aromatherapy candles with scent of flower, fruits, and sweets. Don’t you think it would be great if you could make your own candle with the aroma you like?
Making candles is super easy. You only need to melt candles for Buddhist altars, set a wick on the center of a mold with a chopstick, and put the melted wax into the mold. That’s it. If you are using a heat-resistant mold made of glass or pottery, you can even use the mold as part of your candle.
You need to add some fragrance oil in order to make an aromatherapy candle. You should add it when the wax is around 70 degrees Celsius and mix well. 3-5% of the amount of wax is the ideal amount of oil. For example, add 0.3-0.5%ml of oil in 10ml of wax.
