When you think about the perfect scent to make your home smell amazing, a volcano candle comes to mind.
These candles are often scented with an earthy aroma from essential oils such as lavender, clove, cedarwood, or pine.
These candles can be found in many different homemade stores and craft shops, as well as online at sites such as Amazon or Etsy.
In addition, they come with some of the most detailed instructions on how to use them properly – sometimes even including tips about how long you should burn them before refilling them so that you get more out of your candle!
This blog post will show you how to make your own Volcano Candle Scent using essential oils and wax for a custom fragrance that is sure to please!
What is a Volcano scented candle?
A volcano-scented candle is often used as a natural insect repellent. It can also be used to provide relief from nausea, headaches, and other symptoms of motion sickness.
The scent of the volcano candles will help you feel refreshed in mind and body after a long day at work or school. Volcano scented candles are great for meditation because they produce calming sensations that go beyond relaxation to promote peace within oneself.
It’s perfect for those who have trouble focusing on one thing at once.
They are also good if you need something else than an air freshener to get rid of bad smells around the house like pet odors, smoke damage, strong food aromas, and more.
Volcano scented candles are made by adding fragrance oils to molten wax and then pouring the hot liquid into a mold. After cooling, these well-known scent throwers produce an aroma that many people find irresistible!
These fragrant candles can be used in any room of your home or office. They also make excellent gifts for friends and family during the holidays or other occasions throughout the year.
Volcano scented candles are also a great option for people who want to make their own volcano scent.
And if you are an essential oil lover, you can make a diffuser blend that smells just like it to use every. Freaking. Day.
Here’s how you can create them at home:
- paraffin wax (one block),
- essential oil blend, wick (one length) *Note: Essential oils come in different varieties such as citrus, floral, spice/herbal, etc., please choose your desired scent
- candle mold (glass, metal, or silicone)
- Cut the wick to a length appropriate for your candle holder.
- Add two teaspoons of paraffin wax and one teaspoon of essential oil blend to the bottom of the glass candle jar; set aside.
- Melt remaining wax in a double boiler until liquid.
- Remove from heat and stir in additional fragrant oils as needed (about 15-30 drops per ounce).
- Once everything has been mixed together, pour the melted mixture into the chosen container using a funnel – just enough so that it creates an even layer with no visible surface bubbles on top. The mixture should smell pleasant but not too overwhelming so as to overpower your senses while you are burning them later.
- Allow candles to cool completely before handling them!
It’s best to find two matching mugs that hold about 16 ounces each so you can use one as a pot and one as a container for storing the finished product in case it spills over during the heating process.
The containers should be made from glass, ceramic, or metal rather than plastic because they are more durable when heated on high heat. For safety purposes always remember to wear protective gloves!
Make sure there is adequate ventilation in the room where you’ll be melting your ingredients before turning on the stove.
What essential oils smell like a volcano candle?
- peppermint – this is a great oil to use if you are looking for something that has chilling or cooling effects
- cinnamon bark – a good choice when you want an earthy smell. It’s also perfect as the holidays approach because it smells like Christmas trees
- lavender – Lavender can be used in many different ways, so this makes sense and will cover all your bases with scents
- orange – because it’s perfect for the holiday season
If you want to create your own volcano candle scent, be sure to have these essential oils on hand.
Remember that in order to get a true sense of how the different scents will smell when mixed together, try using just one at first and then add another or two.
And don’t forget about blending with water! It can help bring down some harsh smells while bringing out more subtle ones.
A little goes a long way so only mix what you need and remember not to overfill any container!
Some companies offer premade jars of wax that have been mixed up into the perfect consistency needed for these type of projects (making it much easier if you aren’t confident in your recipe). You could try mixing this jar’s worth with essential oils to create a concentrated smell that will last a while.
