How to make a Vanilla Scented Candle?

Do you like your home fully decorated? We know you would have several ideas in mind already, but scented candles are not something that you should ignore, right? 

In this article, I will share a step-by-step guide to help you create your vanilla candle.

Things required creating your own vanilla scented candles:

Here is the list of things that you need:

  • Soy wax flakes 
  • Candlewicks 
  • Sauce Pan
  • Glass bowl
  • Wooden skewers
  • Candle jars
  • Vanilla scent

What should you do?

Use a double boiler to melt the soy wax flakes. You can put these flakes in a glass container and set them on the top of the saucepan half-filled with water. Turn on the burner to let the wax melt slowly. Keep stirring your wax flakes until they've melted.

Meanwhile, put the wick in the container. Adjust the wick in the centre to get the right shape and effective burning of the wax candle.

Once all your wax in the container is fully melted, put 1 tablespoon of vanilla essential oil for the right Vanilla scent. Be sure to mix it well to get the properly mixed wax for your candles.

Now pour the fully melted wax into the container and leave it for 4 hours to set properly. 

Burn your vanilla-scented candle now and enjoy the light soothing smell coming out of your candles. 


Congratulations! You have created your candles. Yeah, it was this easy. But don't take it too easy, as getting the things perfectly right would require a few tries.
