Easy Cassia and Orange DIY Fall Candles

There’s nothing quite like the glowing light of a candle to set a warm and cozy feeling in the room. A lovely scent is icing on the candle!

When we saw that October’s Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box was filled with fall inspired goodies and ingredients to make our own candles, we couldn’t resist ordering ours. Not only did the box include beautifully smelling essential oils such as Cassia, Orange, Balsam Fir and Focus blend, it also includes soy pellets and a wick to make one candle (plus other goodies).

A little while ago my sister-in-law gave me a bunch of little glass jars (I think they were dessert containers). One of the jars was the perfect size and shape to make a candle with.

To make the candle I also needed to use some ingredients from the Big Bonus Box we received when we first signed up with Simply Earth.

Use our coupon code SMCHFREE to get your own Big Bonus Box with your first order. You’ll also get a $40 e-gift card which you can use towards a future purchase!

It’s actually a win-win because you can order the box for yourself this month and then use the gift card next month to order gifts for those special people on your holiday gift list.

And if you’d like to see what was in some of the recent recipe boxes, check out our Big Bonus Box unboxing and how we made beautiful hand soaps with pressed flowers.

Easy DIY Fall Candle Instructions

Melt soy wax, beeswax, and coconut oil in a double boiler or microwave (go slowly, in 15 second increments).

Adding a scoop of solid coconut oil to a clear glass bowl filled with soy wax flakes to make DIY fall candles.

Once the mixture has just melted, remove from heat, add essential oils, and stir for 30 seconds.

Dip the bottom of the wick into the melted wax to adhere it to the bottom of the container. Prop wick upright and pour the wax into the container.

Placing the candle wick into the bottom of the glass jar.

Allow the candle to cool completely. Trim the wick to ¼ inch in height.

I was so happy with how easy my DIY fall candles were to make. And the smell they release when burning is amazing! It gives the whole house a cozy fall feeling.

I’m going to get some more of the soy wax to make the Cassia and Balsam Fir Candle next. The candles will make lovely gifts for the my co-workers and the kids’ teachers with the holidays coming up.

Did I mention that each box also includes lovely stickers you can use with the products you make?
