How to Make Energizing Citrus Himalayan Candles

When I think of the spa, I think of relaxing treatments like deep tissue massages, a dip in a jacuzzi, or sitting in a sauna. What makes every spa treatment special is the atmosphere. I love it when a spa has scented candles and plays instrumental music. Since I can’t go to the spa every day, I stay calm and relaxed by lighting up my favorite Citrus Himalayan Salt Candles.

This definitely is my go-to when I want to pretend I’m having a spa day even when I’m home! I love the mix of Fennel and Orange Essential Oils together. Try it out for yourself and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Pink Himalayan Salt

Pink Himalayan Salt, this type of salt is said to have tons of benefits such as helping keep blood sugar balanced and keeping the body hydrated by providing trace minerals.

Votive Candle

A votive candle helps the essential oils get into the air while the candle is burning.

Fennel Essential Oil

Fennel Essential Oil, this oil energizes and keeps you calm at the same time. Its aroma is wonderfully sweet and earthy.

Orange Essential Oil

Orange Essential Oil, this is another great oil for energizing the room. Its aroma is definitely uplifting and comforting. It’s safe for the entire family, too!

This recipe is safe to use around children 10+.

This recipe is not safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women due to the Fennel Essential Oil in this recipe.

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