Peppermint candies bring thoughts of childhood past, and you can recreate that feeling with a fun and festive scented candle. Layer bright red and snowy white layers of wax into a clear cylinder, scenting both waxes with peppermint essential oil. These candles make an attractive addition to table centerpieces, as well as being welcome hostess gifts or presents for friends with winter birthdays.
What’s cozier than a fireplace on a cold winter’s night? Bring that cozy feeling into your room all day long with a fireplace designed candle. Combine a campfire scent with that of an attractive wood like teak or redwood to evoke the feeling of a warm fire in the room. Tint the wax a creamy beige or redwood color to give the look of fresh cut firewood. This is the perfect candle for burning while sipping tea and reading a book while the snow flies.
There’s something about cold winter weather that encourages bakers to create tasty treats. Add that delicious scent to your rooms without all the added calories. Tint your wax a golden brown to imitate tasty baked goods, and scent it with sugar cookies, banana bread, or muffin scents to get your mouth watering. Add to the look by creating these candles in attractive canning jars and attaching hand written labels to add to the rustic charm.
Making your own scented candles is a great way to add an artisan touch to every room decorating scheme. Scent is among the strongest of our senses, and it always brings back fond memories. Create your own scented candle collection and you’ll always have them on hand to use every day.
