Candle recipes and coloring ideas

These recipes are a great place to start! You can use these as a guide to plan out your own varieties of scent combinations. With so many different colors and scents, the only limit is your imagination.

1.    Lemon Cucumber Mint

This refreshing combination is perfect for any time of the year, but especially during the summer months when you may have cucumbers and mint growing in your outdoor garden. It has an invigorating scent that will provide a nice pick-me-up while also helping to ward off bugs!

Lemon Cucumber Mint Candle Oil Recipe

1/2 cup of water

– Peel the zest from the lemons using the vegetable peeler

– Cut cucumbers into slices and roughly chop mint leaves

– Combine all ingredients in a pan and bring to a slow boil for 10 minutes, or until the cucumbers are soft. Strain out solids. Add candle oil base (olive, almond, etc.) during the final step.

2.    Fresh Air Spray

Some may say that candles that emit fragrance are not safe to burn inside because they cause indoor air pollution. That’s why making your own spray is an excellent way to create fresh scents quickly without having to worry about any dangerous toxins getting released into the environment.

3.    Laundry Room Scents

Placing a jar of homemade laundry room scents in your laundry room can provide a natural aromatherapy experience that will leave your laundry smelling absolutely wonderful! It’s so easy to make and you can use any type of jar or container, such as small jelly jars or old candle jars! Just be sure you thoroughly clean the jar after using it for food before using it for the oil mixture.

This is one of my absolute favorite combinations that I like to use when decorating at Christmas time! It’s warm, inviting, and just downright delightful in every way imaginable! The cherry scent adds such a sweet quality while the vanilla mellows it out perfectly. A perfect combination for any holiday event!

Fun crafts you can do with kids using leftover wax, wicks, and jars

One of the best parts about candle making in Singapore is that kids get to be a part of it from start to finish! Kids love to pick out their favorite colors and spread the wax. They will also enjoy digging through jars for different shapes, sizes, and textures of wicks. When they are done filling up their jar with a new blend of color and scent, they will have a sense of pride for their finished work.

I used candles all the time when I was a kid because my mom loved them so much. She always had candles lit in every room of the house for some reason. I guess she just loved how soft and warm they made everything feel or something? Anyway, I got into making candles myself when I was about 12-years-old. I was the only one in my family that could get the wax to stay on the wicks long enough to make them burn all the way down to nothing (which means there is no waste!)
