Surprisingly, without being an artist, you can in fact make some really artistic candles easily. For example, when you make ice candles, the ice does all of the work for you!

Why Make Your Own Candles:

There are many reasons why people want to make their own candles. For me, the reason why I make my own candles is because I like to combine candles with aromatherapy.

If I were to buy candles, then it is possible the candles use synthetic scents and I personally prefer natural scents. When I make my own candles, I can control not only the quality of the essential oils used but also the combination. I must admit, like many people I like vanilla or cinnamon the best!

When I make my vanilla or cinnamon candles I need to remind myself that candles are not meant for eating!

It is amazing to know, but even at the North Pole, scientists are able to detect in the air the scents from parfumes and colognes. This is because these aromas are synthetic (man made) and don't easily break down. As a result, these artificial aromas float around the world with the air currents.

Due to the fact that many synthetic parfumes don't break down easily, this is perhaps also why many people have allergies to these scents. Myself, I don't like parfumes or colognes including aftershaves and there is nothing worse than being stuck in an elevator with someone who has on too much parfume because ironically, instead of making them smell good, they stink!

Anyway, there are many reasons why people make candles. Some of these reasons include:

  • It's fun to make candles
  • You can sell your candles for profit
  • You control the look and design of your candles to compliment your decor

We all should have candles in case of an emergency such as a power outage. If your only reason for making candles is for this very reason then you might as well just buy candles. But if you are wanting to not only have candles for their practical reasons but also for their beauty and artistic qualities, then is going to be of great benefit to you!


For those that don't know, parfume is a French word. In some English speaking countries people will spell the word as "perfume". By to be proper, the word is "parfume".

Parfume is a French word that literally means "by smoke". Par is French for "by" and fume is French for "smoke".

In days gone by, parfumes were essentially incense used in such places as churches. Then more recently in time, parfumes became as we know them today. But the origin of parfumes still lies in the creation of aroma through smoke. So when you make your own scented candles you are, in a way, making your own parfume!
