Making Candles With Young Living Oils

Candles are a classic form of home décor, adding a pleasant aromatherapy aspect as well as creating a cozy atmosphere. And what better way to add even more to your candle-making experiences than to add essential oils? Young Living Oils offers a line of high-quality essential oils, flower and herb extracts, and more for all your aromatic needs.

Why Use Young Living Oils To Make Candles?

Young Living Oils is well-known for offering high-quality essential oils that are certified pure, therapeutic-grade, and carefully tested. That means that you can trust that you’ll be using high-quality oil in your candles, rather than inferior oils of uncertain origin.

Choosing the Right Candle Wax and Wicks

When making candles, it’s important to choose the right supplies in order to ensure the safety of your candle. High-quality, natural waxes and wicks can help prevent soot buildup and ensure long-lasting, burn evenly.

Popular candle waxes for essential oil candles include:

  • Soy Wax
  • Beeswax
  • Coconut Wax
  • Palm Wax
  • Paraffin Wax

It’s also important to choose the right wicks for your candles. Look for wicks that are specifically designed for the type of wax you are using. Many candle makers recommend using two or more hemp-core wicks for larger candles (usually taller than 8 oz).

Adding Essential Oils to Your Candles

When you’re ready to add the essential oils to your candles, it’s important to calculate the correct amount of oil to add to your wax. Young Living suggest using 4-7% essential oil to wax ratio when making candles. Here’s a helpful chart to make sure you get the perfect ratio:
