Easy Orange Scented Candle DIY for Fall

There’s nothing like cozying up with a book, blanket, coffee, and a candle. 

If that scene sounds good to you then you will love this Cassia and Orange Candle recipe. The sweet cinnamon smell of cassia with the bright citrus aroma of orange, you are going to love this essential oil candle recipe!

I love the gently burn and the sweet/spicy aroma of this candle that sets the scene for the perfect fall day inside. 

Easy Orange Scented Candle DIY Recipe for Fall

Soy Wax

This natural candle wax creates a white candle that super easy to work with.

Coconut Oil

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

To scent our candle, we’ll be using Cassia and Orange Essential Oils – this blend of oils is a favorite around Simply Earth. 

Small Container

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.

This recipe is safe to use with children 10+.

This recipe is not recommended for use in close proximity to dogs and cats as the Cassia Essential Oil may cause irritation. For more information on using essential oils with dogs, check out this blog post, for cats, this blog post. 

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
