You are back home from a stressful day at the office. But, your home smells musty because you have not been able to clean it for the past few days. Now, wouldn’t it be great to have a divine smelling home at the end of the day? An easy way to accomplish this is by using scented candles. Instead of buying expensive scented candles from the store, just make one yourself and enjoy. Making a French vanilla candle is really quite simple.
Here Are The Tips To Make Diy French Vanilla Candles:
Enjoy The Soothing Aroma:
Vanilla is used in aromatherapy in order to ease stress and anxiety. These candles also make for great gift articles. So, go ahead, make some of these and enjoy them yourself or derive greater pleasure by gifting them to your near and dear ones.
Things You Will Need:
You will need some candle wax or some unusable old candles. We always end up having some candles that have burnt away, leaving small stubs at the bottom. You can use those candle stubs. A large bowl is needed for melting the wax and mixing the ingredients. Take some pretty decorative glass bowls. Some candle wicks for lighting and glue for holding the wicks in place is also needed. Vanilla beans and coffee beans are needed for the aroma.
If you are using old candle stubs, remove the wicks and keep them ready for melting. Also chop the vanilla beans, but keep the coffee beans as such. Trim the wicks according to the size of your glass bowl.
Just melt the candle wax in the large bowl in a microwave or by using a stove. Stick the wicks to the bottom of the glass bowl using the glue. Pour the melted wax into the glass bowl. You may also hold the wicks in place after pouring wax into the glass bowl instead of sticking them. Put the coffee beans and chopped vanilla beans in the melted wax and stir well. Allow some time for the wax to cool. That’s it your French vanilla candle is ready. Now, just light it up and enjoy the pleasant aroma that fills up your home.
If you already have a vanilla scented candle, there is another way to achieve the aroma without adding the coffee beans in the wax. Just place the coffee beans in a small bowl. Place the vanilla scented candle in the center of the bowl by pushing the coffee beans to the sides. When you light up the candle, the heat from the candle releases aroma from the coffee beans and leaves your home smelling great.
