Mason Jar Candles With Lavender
Custom candles from your very own kitchen. Whether you want to set the mood for a languid soak in the tub, introduce a burst of spring scent into your newly spring-cleaned home or enhance a romantic interlude on the couch, scented candles are a perfect addition to your home. Sure, you could buy one at the store, but they’re a simple, inexpensive diy. Bonus: you get to pick your own fragrance and color! You can use almost any vessel that can withstand heat: teacups, jelly jars, egg cups, etc., but we’ll be focusing on a creative classic: mason jars. Experiment with colors and fragrances until you achieve the sweet smell of success.
With warmer spring-like days around the corner, we are dreaming of the flowers starting to bloom in the garden. One of the first blooms we enjoy are lavender. Collecting and drying them to make mason jar candles is one of our favorite things to do! What’s not to like about lavender? The relaxing scent, pretty foliage and lovely color make it one of our absolute favorite garden perennials.
