Our Step By Step Guide To Making A Leather Scented Candle
To make a leather scented candle, you will need a few tools on hand, and a high-quality leather scented fragrance oil for the job, it might take a few experiments to get the right strength of scent you want.
- One pound of beeswax.
- Half a cup of coconut oil.
- Leather scented fragrance oil.
- Four ounces of mason jars.
- Old coffee tin.
- Candle wicks.
- Bamboo skewer.
- Four-ounce mason jar.
- Start by making your double boiler and melting the beeswax down, remove from the heat, let the wax cool for a few minutes then add in your coconut oil to help the candle burn slower.
- Get your leather scent for candles and weigh out around 10% of the candle wax, stirring it into the melted wax.
- Glue your wick down into the middle of your jar and pour in the wax, leave at least an inch of space at the top of the jar.
- Use a skewer or even a pencil to keep the wick tied and upright in the middle.
- Let the candle sit for a day to solidify then trim the wick to half an inch long and enjoy!
Overall, leather scented candles can be made with some leather fragrance oil and give a great luxurious fresh scent to your living room.
Make sure to take notes when making your scented candle so you can see which ratios of scent and wax work well for you.
