What I Love About this Recipe
I love the gently burn and the sweet/spicy aroma of this candle that sets the scene for the perfect fall day inside.
What’s in the Orange Candle Recipe?
This natural candle wax creates a white candle that super easy to work with.
We’ll be using coconut oil to help slow the burn time of the candle. It’s also a great natural additive to help get more out of your soy wax and beeswax.
Beeswax creates a honey scent to a candle. It’s another great natural wax for making candles.
There are a lot of different wicks to choose from, but we used a braided cotton and paper wick for its gentle burn and sustainability.
Cassia and Orange Essential Oils
I loved going to my local thrift store and picking out fun containers for this. They had a huge selection of containers that would work. This recipe will create a 2 oz candle so the container you’ll need is pretty small.
