Who does not like the scent of burning candles? To be honest, one of our favorite pastimes is when the weather gets cooler and we want our homes to be more comfortable and smell inviting with scents like pumpkin spice or apple pie candles.
We also love these types of candles for their staging – especially in autumn, when the leaves change and temperatures drop. Since we do not open our windows so often in the fall months, it's important to make sure the fragrances in our homes are appealing – especially if you have home buyers. Candles can be a great way to give the air a delicious scent, especially since most of them do not add chemicals like room sprays. We distract our customers from the odors laden with chemicals as they often cause visitors to experience allergic or negative reactions. In fact, many people today are very sensitive to sprays like Febreeze. That's why it's important to find alternatives that will make your home smell good without shutting down the buyers.
This does not mean that we encourage you to stock up on expensive candles (although we can tell you where to shop, as we know the best places). Making your own candles can be simple, entertaining and a great way to make your home smell cheap so it smells fantastic. Here are some tips for making candles:
A variety of glasses of different sizes (we love mason jars)
2 tablespoons of essential pumpkin spice oil (or essential apple cake oil)
Yellow and red liquid dye
2 pounds of soy wax chips
6 "wicks with flap
Heat-resistant glass measuring cup
1. Place wax chips in a heat-resistant glass measuring cup. Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave; stir. Repeat until everything has melted.
2. Dip the wick strap into molten wax and center it on the bottom of a jar. Wrap the other end of the wick around the skewer. Node. Let the skewer rest over the glass until the wax has dried.
3. Add drops of liquid dye to molten wax, maintaining a ratio of red dye to yellow dye of about 1 to 3. stir. Continue to dye until the wax has an orange color.
4. Add approx. 40 drops of oil per cup of wax.
5. Fill the jars, and leave a 5 cm wide rim at the top. Become firm; Trim wicks.
