Essential oil Recipes

JentzJanuary 23, 2013

I'm looking at EO's to fragrance my candles. I've looked all over for recipes and haven't had much luck. Does anyone have any recipes they would like to share? I'm mostly looking at aromatherapy blends.

Thank you for sharing! :)

Pure essential oils don't always work in candles. Most either have no throw or smell awful when they burn. The only one with which I have had any success is lavender.

I have used different essential oils in wax melts and the scent is fine. I think those looking for a natural candle or wax melt will be happy. Obviously, lavender and other florals work well. I have also done peppermint and some with vanilla since I found a fantastic vanilla. I plan on making some with citrus also, you would need litsea cubea or bergamont as other citrus oils don't hold as well.
