I love the smell of lavender in the house. Its aroma is so grounding and relaxing. and I love all things DIY so making candles is one of my favorite things to do. I explore ideas for perfect combinations of aromas and have been pleasantly surprised with my most recent creations. For these candles the combination of the lavender with the floral smell of Paris nights make for a beautiful aroma.

How to make Lavender and floral soy wax candles
I enjoy making candles and experimenting with the different smells, I use the essential oils for the aromatherapy properties and wide range of combinations that will create the most beautiful smells.
Fist melt the soy wax chips in a double boiler.
Allow to cool for a few minutes after soy wax chips are fully melted and then mix in the essential oil and fragrance. One of my favorite fragrances is the Paris nights, I used that one as well in these candles. The Paris nights combined with the lavender smells earthy and floral and gives the feeling of romance in the air.
Add some of the lavender flowers and mix well before pouring the melted wax into the cupcake liners in the mold. I added a few more flowers after I poured the wax in the liner to fill most of the top surface and give a beautiful look to these candles.
Insert the candle wick and allow to fully harden and cool.
Once the candles are hardened and cool remove from the mold and remove the cupcake liner. Then cut the candle wick.
I love how these ones turned out with the addition of the lavender flowers. They look so beautiful, and smell amazing.
I love the smell in my kitchen after this project.
I did not add any colors to the candles as I like the white and wanted to highlight the lavender flowers.
These candles are not only beautiful, they smell amazing.
