Candles can certainly help set the mood. But there’s nothing romantic about coughing and sneezing. When store-bought, artificially scented flames attack your sinuses, you need to try a different route. Making your own is a sure-fire way to get a glow that does your body good. This DIY recipe includes only pure, safe ingredients – like beeswax and essential oils – so you can keep the flame burning.
Your homemade candles shopping list:
- Jars or other decorative glass containers
- Coconut oil
- Lemongrass essential oil
- Vanilla in jojoba oil
- Eucalyptus oil
- Rose petals
- Calendula flowers
- Lavender flowers
Bonus tip: These make great gifts for family, friends, coworkers – even your kids’ teachers!
