Christmas Rose Petal Candle

I got a cute Christmas tin last year and wanted to make a nice Christmas scented candle but didn’t have the right oils. I decided on a rose scented one with dried petals in the mix.

Materials:

  1. Old tin or jar
  2. Rose essential oil, dried rose petals
  3. Beeswax or soy wax
  4. Double boiler setup
  5. Wick and holder

Process:

  • I used a small metal bowl to melt my wax and placed it in tin a pan of boiling water. The wax needs to be slowly melted at an even temperature. Once melted, add 12-20 drops of essential oil (the one I have is super strong, so I only added 10 drops). Mix evenly and gently.
  • Add the wick into the tin. I was lucky enough to have some dried petals from a soap kit I had bought earlier. I used tweezers to dip the petals in wax and placed them in the tin.
  • Pour in the wax. Use a wood skewer to hold the wick in place until the wax hardens.

And voila. Beautifully floral scents await 🙂
