Homemade Eucalyptus Candle With Essential Oil

If you are also a crafty person, then you are in the right place. Today we will try our hands at candle making. The process is not as complicated as you might think. You can use essential oils as well as some containers that you have around. The star of our show is the eucalyptus candle, with a pleasant smell and offering all of the benefits of eucalyptus oil. Let’s get started.

You will need a small recipient, 2 and ½ of soy candle flakes, one green crayon, about 6 inch of candle wick, a pencil and 15 drops of eucalyptus oil. During this process, I like to use wax crayons to dye the candle. They are cheap and also easy and fun to use. The more crayon you melt, the more colorful the candle will be. For this one, we shall use about half of it, to get a subtler hue.

Begin by heating up the soy flakes over medium heat in a Teflon pan. Keep your flakes moving by stirring from time to time. In this way you avoid them sticking to the pan or clumping. Once they turn to liquid, lower the heat and drop in your crayon. Continue stirring until the color distributes evenly.  Remove from heat and set the pan aside. Now is the moment to add in the drops of eucalyptus oil.

Take the wick and wrap its ends on a pencil or a chopstick. Allow the weight of it to drop to the bottom of the jar. Use the crayon to hold it in place over the top. Now slowly pour the melted soy flakes into the jar. Adjust the wick as needed, because it should stay centered. Set the jar in a cool place so it has time to harden. This should take about 4 hours, on average. Do not disturb it during this time. Avoid touching or shaking it, because it might still be soft on the inside.

In conclusion, this is how you make an eucalyptus candle, quick and easy. Light it up and let its smell envelop and relax you!
