The smell of beer is a very distinct one. If you love to drink it, then you will probably enjoy the scent of it as well!
Beer scented candles provide a long-lasting aroma that smells great and can make any room feel more comfortable.
In this blog post, we will discuss how to create these candles in three easy steps for anyone who wants to try them out at home!
Do you want to make scented candles? If so, you have come to the right place. We have taken the time to create some of the best beer-scented candles we could find. These are not your typical candles, but instead unique candle designs that will really impress people.
The idea of a scented candle may seem strange, but there are some notable benefits, such as creating a relaxing, romantic atmosphere, which can be especially useful if you are stressed or feeling down.
Some people choose scented candles for the mood-enhancing benefits the aroma may bring, while others may enjoy the smell to help them unwind.
Let’s Talk Craft Beer Candles
Ever wonder how to make beer-scented candles? Well, today you’ll learn all about the process.
Craft beer has become so popular that demand for a candle that is lighter, more aromatic and better quality than the usual store-bought candles have become in high demand.
So naturally, these candles are popping up at craft beer festivals and bars across the country. However, you may not be aware of what to expect when it comes to the quality of candles produced from craft breweries.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, or have perhaps just never heard of beer-scented candles, they are very popular in the candle industry.
Most of the time, these candles are made with wax and are generally more like incense than actual candles.
The scent is usually something like vanilla, but there are also scents like honey or even beer. These candles are generally sold as a set (which is what we’ll use in this tutorial) but here we’ll be making just one.
Beer Candle Making:
I used about a pound of beeswax for these candles, but you can use more or less depending on how big the candles are. Beeswax comes in blocks and is sold at craft stores or online.
You could also melt small chunks from old candlesticks instead if that’s what you have available to do!
A block of beeswax will come with instructions for melting it down into liquid form so just follow those instructions.
If your block has no directions then place the whole thing in a pot with water until all parts are completely submerged before turning on the heat and heating everything up together over medium high heat (you might need to turn the pan off once it melts).
Once melted remove from heat as soon as it’s done and then pour into candle molds.
You can find these at any craft store, but I got mine off Amazon for about $11-12 a pop which is not bad considering the price of candles are usually around that much each!
The mold has to be placed on top of something in order to get an even layer when pouring so just use a cookie sheet or anything else that works (I used our cutting board).
You’ll want enough wax to fill up the bottom part of your mold with some extra room; if there isn’t enough left over after completely filling the first half then wait until more melts down before continuing – otherwise the second side will have too little.
If you don’t like beer then that’s okay. You can use any other kind of drink, but just keep in mind the difference in taste and aroma when it comes to hard liquor versus wine or apple cider for example.
The key is to find something with a strong scent so that your candle doesn’t smell bland!
After pouring into each mold let them cool for about 30-40 minutes before taking out from the molds and trimming off excess wick sticking out (for bigger candles)
Once they’re ready, light as normal! A few moments later you’ll start smelling hints of your favorite beverage coming through – delicious!
When we were asked to create this candle, we knew we wanted to make a candle that smelled like beer. However, we never would have thought it would be beer-scented. A lot of people are die-hard fans of the smell of beer and some people even describe it as a smell that makes them feel thirsty. So, what’s the deal? Is it just a smell? Or is there actually something more to it?
