Homemade Lemon and Eucalyptus Candle...

How to make your own scented candle using essential oils




It has been on my mind for a while to learn how to make candles. Candles are wonderful and simple additions to any home not only as beautiful decor items together with a matching candle holder, but they add warmth and cosiness to a space as well. They bring the fire element into a home - the element that brings energy into the home, keeps the spirit of the home alive.


To 'upgrade' the experience it is even better if the candles are scented. As they release their fragrance they fill up the home with different energy and feelings - they can be calming, energising, stimulating, invigorating, etc.

You can obviously buy scented candles in many shops but what if you make your very own candle? It apparently is not a rocket science, you can make them really easily with a few supplies and a little bit of know-how. If you buy them make sure they are scented with pure aromatherapy oils and not with synthetic ones. If you yourself make it the advantage is that you are in charge what goes into your candles. But first check whether you or anyone living together with you are sensitive to the fragrance you would want to use. The best is to use organic supplies and ingredients even if they are a bit more expensive. Your health is worth it!


Here is a short video tutorial as to how you can make your own scented candle:




In this video doTERRA Lemond Eucalyptus oil is used as added essence and scent. Lemon Eucalyptus besides many other benefits is also known for its refreshing, uplifting aroma that helps create an invigorating atmosphere in your home and it just smells wonderful. Not to mention that do TERRA oils are completely natural and safe oils for everyday use.

Styling and Decorating - Express Yourself

You might have a newly purchased home that needs a full styling service or you already have the big pieces in place but the interior still lacks that "wow" factor and need some help with the smaller details.

Perhaps you just need a sort of design remix to refresh your space and give it a new look.

Or alternatively you are about to sell or rent your property and wish to make it more appealing and valuable for possible buyers and renters.
