Check out this fun Fall DIY project! I know the Beeswax candles were a hit a few months back, so I wanted to share this amazing Cinnamon & Clove Fall candle DIY. It is an easy and fun project that even the kids will enjoy.
Something about colder months and Fall candles gives me all the feels!! The only bad thing is you can never find any candles made with quality ingredients. This one is a clean burn, and they also make lovely gifts.
I can’t tell you how excited I am for fall! I love everything about it from the weather, the leaves, and the decor – it’s my favorite time of year.
•6 cups natural soy wax
•natural candle wicks I like 23 Bees 100% Organic Hemp Wicks
•30 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil
•20 drops Clove essential oil
•3 mason jars
•pouring pot, old pot, mason jar, old measuring cup (you’ll be dedicating this container for wax melting)
Gather supplies, measure out 6 cups of natural soy wax. For measuring purposes, 10 ounces (weight) of soy wax is equivalent to 8 ounces of fluid volume.
Place a large saucepan with 2-3 inches of water over medium heat on the stove, add the wax to your pouring pot or a pot you are okay getting wax in. If the water starts boiling turn it down to low. Add the wax and let it melt for roughly 10 minutes or until it gets to approximately 185 degrees (use a cooking thermometer to determine the temp).
While your wax is melting take a hot glue gun and glue your natural candle wicks to the bottom of your mason jar or other chosen container.
Once it reaches 185 degrees, add 30 drops of Cinnamon Bark and 20 drops of Clove essential oil. Wait a minute or two to let the wax cool to approximately 120-130 degrees and slowly pour the wax in your jars. Sometimes the heat of the wax can cause the wicks to move, so I suggest taking skewers or chopsticks and place them on top of the jar or container and wrap the wick around it to hold it in place while the wax dries.
Let the candles dry overnight then cut the natural wicks to 1/4 inch above the wax. Add your fabric and twine and enjoy!!
