DIY Natural Fall Candles


The October 2019 Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe box is fall themed, specifically DIY natural fall candles.  

It has:


You'll use these supplies, plus some of the supplies from the Bonus Box, to make 6 fall recipes.

  • Cassia and Orange Candle
  • Cassia and Balsam Fir Candle
  • Fall Diffuser Blend
  • Joint Pain Roll On
  • Aromatherapy Rice Bag
  • Focus Lip Balm
The box has most of the supplies that you need.  For this box, you'll need to supply 4-ounce canning jars for the candles and a sock and rice for the aromatherapy rice bag.

Cassia and Orange Candle


If you've always wanted to make DIY natural fall candles, Simply Earth makes it easy.  The only thing you'll need is a small container.  

I used a 4-ounce canning jar to make my candles.  Be careful reusing an old candle container or a tea cup.  They are cute as candles, but they may not be able to be reheated over and over again.  Even an old candle container may not be able to stand being reheated after the candle burns.  

Canning jars are designed to be heated over and over again, so you can reuse those.




Ingredients


Directions


Step 1


Melt soy wax, beeswax, and coconut oil in a double boiler.  Remove from heat once melted.

Step 2


Let cool to 180 degrees or lower (I use a laser thermometer) and add the essential oils.  Stir for 30 seconds.

Step 3


Dip the bottom of the wick into the melted wax and stick it to the bottom of the jar.  Prop it upright and carefully pour the wax into the jar.

Step 4


Let the candle cool completely, about 1 hour.  Trim the wick to 1/4 inch above the candle.  

Keep away from children and pets while burning.  Always burn with care and within sight.

Cassia and Balsam Fir Candle


This candle is made the same was as the other candle.  Again, choose a container that's capable of handling heat.  I highly recommend a 4-ounce mason jar.



Ingredients



Directions


Step 1


Melt soy wax, beeswax, and coconut oil in a double boiler.  Remove from heat once melted.

Step 2


Let cool to 180 degrees or lower (I use a laser thermometer) and add the essential oils.  Stir for 30 seconds.

Step 3


Dip the bottom of the wick into the melted wax and stick it to the bottom of the jar.  Prop it upright and carefully pour the wax into the jar.

Step 4


Let the candle cool completely, about 1 hour.  Trim the wick to 1/4 inch above the candle.  

Keep away from children and pets while burning.  Always burn with care and within sight.

Fall Diffuser Blend


Make your home smell like fall with this diffuser blend.  You can use it once in a diffuser or make a master blend to use more often.



Ingredients


Directions


Simply add all to a diffuser.  To create a master blend, add 25 drops of each oil to your bottle.  Add 1 to 3 drops of this blend to your diffuser.

Joint Pain Roll On


Relive pain naturally with this joint pain roll on.  It's easy to make, and since it's a roller bottle it won't be messy.



Ingredients


Directions


Add the essential oils to the roller bottle.  Fill with the almond oil.  Place the roller back in the bottle and apply directly to aches and pains.

DIY Aromatherapy Rice Bag


I love using rice bags because they create a moist heat that seems to work better for me.



Ingredients


Directions


Step 1


Fill the sock half full with rice and then dump the rice into an empty bowl.  Add the essential oils and stir well. 

Step 2


Pour the rice back into the sock.  Stitch shut or use a fabric glue.  

Step 3


To use, microwave for about 1 minute.  You may need to adjust the time depending on the size of the rice pack and your microwave.  Be careful because it may be hot.  

Focus Lip Balm


This lip balm moisturizes your lips and has a focusing essential oil blend.



Ingredients


Directions


Step 1


Melt and beeswax and coconut oil in a double boiler.  

Step 2


Add the almond oil and essential oil and stir well. 

Step 3


Pour into the lip balm tubes and let sit until cool.
