Wood wick candles can be really pricey so this is a great budget-friendly alternative! I love anything with cinnamon, so this might be the perfect candle for me.

I love candles, so I will definitely need to try this project. It will be so much fun to make it at home instead of purchasing it.

I LOVE the scent of chai, especially after drinking it in India. It has special memories, but I'm not always in the mood for a drink. I think I might have to make this so I can enjoy the scent any time!

What a great holiday gift idea! This DIY candle is budget-friendly and chic!

Candles are so expensive these days and I have been looking for a DIY candle recipe. This looks like it would smell AMAZING. I need to try this puppy out!
