To make them, you need the following ingredients:

  1. natural wax
  2. good quality essential oils

  4. non-toxic crayons (optional if you want to add colour)
  5. containers


  1. First take a saucepan or a pot which you think you can separate in using it for making scented candles.
  2. Directly melt the natural wax in the pot on a low flame.
  3. If you do not want to waste your pan, pour water in it, take a heat resistant dish, put the natural wax in it and start melting it.
  4. While the wax is melting, put the wick at the bottom of the container and support it with chopsticks or skewers so that it remains straight.
  5. After the wax is melted, take it off the stove and add some drops of essential oil in it.
  6. If you want to add colour, take a non-toxic crayon and add a small piece of it to the melted candle.
