Homemade Christmas Gift Idea: Gingerbread House Candle (All-Natural with Essential Oils). Cool Winter DIY;-)

 Who is ready for Christmas? I most certainly am!!! I know it may seem too early but I've been waiting to do this Gingerbread Candle project since May - I can NOT wait any longer;-) Plus ginger+cinnamon+clove is a signature scent of fall, too - it's even in the pumpkin spice blend! But this candle is even yummier, because it also has vanilla - Christmas isn't complete without the warm vanilla cookie flavor, right? And my favorite part is that these candles are made naturally with essential oils. Ok, let's make them!!!
 
WHAT I USE: (for a 2 oz votive)

--3.4 oz Soy Wax/ Beeswax
--15 drops Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
--15 drops Clove Bud Essential Oil
--20 drops Vanilla Fragrance Oil 
-- Candle Wick
-- Candle Mold





WHAT I DO:

I first melt the wax in double boiler following the temperature instructions on the package. Once it's melted I add the essential oils and stir the mixture with wooden spatula. Then I place the wick in the mold and pour melted wax with essential oils into my mold. I let my candle harden overnight, take it out of the mold in the morning, trim the wick to the desired length and Voila! - the candle is ready to be burned (or gifted;-))) 


I challenge you guys to try this DIY out - the candle smells unbelievable and it's all natural! My Christmas this year is going to smell like never before - I CAN'T wait!;-)

  6. Excellent blog on release oil..There are numerous variable factors influencing the selection of a Mould Release Oil, eg the type of clay or concrete mix, the size, shape and type of mould or form, the surface finish required and the rate of production.

  15. Hi...sounds like it would smell wonderful, but just wondering why you would use a vanilla fragrance oil, which is in no way a pure essential oil, or all natural, but a man made chemical product. Why not use a vanilla absolute(or a diluted version of vanilla absolute)?

  16. Hello I just want to know do you have to spray the molds before you pour the wax in then?

  17. What's the burn time on the candles??

  18. I definitely need to try my hand at making these candles. Thanks for the recipe. I'm thinking about making them as tarts to melt in my tart burner though instead. Is the yellow color from the wax you used? I would prefer for them to be a more primitive rustic color to store in an old mason jar out in the open. BTW, love your blog!
