Easy DIY Fall Candles with Simply Earth

Fall has arrived which often brings those warm days and cool nights. Lighting a homemade candle with beautiful scent of orange and cinnamon is a great way to warm up on those brisk evenings.

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 does 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).

Easy Cassia and Orange DIY Candles

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.

Ingredients Needed to Make One Candle

Easy DIY Candle Instructions

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

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.

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

I was so happy with how easy my DIY fall candle was to make. And the smell it releases when it burns 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?

The October Recipe Box is only here for a limited time and includes recipes to make lip balm, an aromatherapy rice bag, joint pain roll on, Fall Diffuser Blend and the two candles (Cassia and Balsam Fir, Cassia and Orange). Be sure you get yours before it sells out.

Finally, you’ll love November’s Recipe Box too- all about Bath and Shower!
