Soy Candle Recipe Fragrances
Essential oil blends for making aromatherapy oil candles
There's nothing like pure, natural soy wax scented candles to brighten a room (or your mood!)
How to Choose: Essential Oil or Soy Candle Fragrance Oil?In a nutshell, synthetic candle fragrance oil is bad for you and the environment.
Aromatherapy Candle Quick TrickHere's a quick, easy trick you can use if you don't have time to make your own soy wax scented candles.
Light an unscented candle and let it burn until there's a decent-sized pool of melted wax around the wick. Pour a few drops of your favorite essential oil or one of the blends below into the melted wax.
Caution: Do not pour oil on the wick, because it's very flammable.
(This also works on a scented candle if you want to boost its scent - just match the essential oil to the candle's fragrance.)

Sprinkle a few lavender flowers over the top of the candle as the wax begins to harden for a pretty floral touch.
Relaxing Woodsy Soy Candle RecipeDeep and rich with a hint of sweetness, this relaxing blend is perfect for an evening of quiet, candlelit conversation. (I actually find it more relaxing than the Lavender blend.)
Wrap your jar in a wide chocolate brown ribbon and finish by hot-gluing on a bright gold button or ornament - warm, exotic and elegant!
Softly Sensual Aromatherapy Candle RecipeSoft, spicy and floral, this sensual blend with Sandalwood essential oil is a little more costly to make, but it's well worth the extra expense. For a warm, intimate evening at home...
For a sweetly casual look, simply tie a length of palest yellow ribbon around your jar and tuck two or three curly vanilla beans into the knot.
