It took me FOREVER to finally decide I could make these Easy DIY Crockpot Candles. I have no idea why because it’s super easy and y’all adding essential oils just makes them so much better than store bought candles. These Lavender and Rosemary crockpot candles turn out so pretty. Remember my post How to Grow Lavender and What to Do with it. Well this is it! I think turned out so pretty too. (Think great gift giving for these) It’s ok to use the cheaper essential oils too!
Easy DIY Crockpot Candles
– Glass jars
– Soy wax flakes
– Weighted candle wicks, large
– Rosemary oil
– Lavender oil OR dried lavender
– Chopstick or stirring stick
1. Place the wick in the jar. If you need help getting it to stay centered, add a tad of glue to the weight and press into place.
2. Fill to the top with the soy flakes. Keep the wick centered as you fill.
3. Add 7-10 drops of rosemary oil to the jar. Place the jar in the crock pot set on high.
4. As the wax melts down, you will add more. Just sprinkle it in evenly around the wick.
5. Allow the jar to sit for about 60-90 minutes in the crock pot until the wax has liquefied. Add additional flakes as needed.
6. When the wax nears the top, sprinkle in the dried lavender buds. Or, you can add some of the lavender oil at this time.
7. Give the candle a last good stir, and remove from the pot. Allow to cool and harden.
8. Snip off any extra wick before burning. Never burn any candles unattended or do crafts with hot wax around children.
DIY Crockpot Candles with Essential Oils are super easy and do not take a lot of time. You can do other things while they melt down. Have you tried making candles? If so please leave a comment letting me know how you make yours.
