A richly scented candle holds more fragrance than an ordinary candle, which means that they will hold the scent right to the very end of the candle. It is a simple process to make homemade candles so that you get just the right scent that you want. There are many places where you can get instructions, tips and secrets to help you create your own richly scented candle, such as books and magazines. However, there are many Internet sites devoted to helping people make their own richly scented candles at home.

To get started with making a homemade scented candle, you do need to have the right equipment. In addition to the proper wax and cooking equipment, you will need to have essential oils that you need to get the rich scents you want. You can combine many of the candle scents to create a scent that is unique to your richly scented candle. Candles can only hold a certain amount of scent. In an ordinary scented candle, .5 ounces of essential oil is the normal amount to use. In a candle that is richly scented, you can triple that amount to 1.5 ounces.

Some of the most popular candle scents include the scent of homemade baking. When you enter a home that has the scent of gingerbread, lemon pie or other delectable goodies wafting through the air, you get a cozy feeling. How about a homemade scented candle with the rich scent of cinnamon? When you are talking about a richly scented candle, you can also have them made in the shape of home baked goodies, such as a cinnamon log or a blueberry tart.

Soy wax is the best to use to make a richly scented candle. This is because this natural ingredient holds the scent better in addition to burning longer. They also have a stronger scent throw, which enables you to fill the entire room with the candle scents. You do have to melt the wax over high heat in a double boiler. Then you add the color and the scent that you want for your homemade scented candles. You can pick up a variety of molds at craft stores or at online candle making supply stores or you can even make you own. Simply forming a mold out of tinfoil is a very inexpensive way to make your own scented candles.

The candle scents you can buy for making a richly scented candle are not watered down with any other ingredients. If you are nor sure of which scents you want for your homemade scented candle you can experiment with various scents to find the combination you want or simply stick to one scent. The amount of oil that you use and the type of wax will determine how well the richly scented candle does hold its scent.
