As spring blooms and brings a sense of renewal and freshness, what better way to celebrate the season than with the warm glow and delightful aromas of homemade scented candles? Crafting your spring-scented candles is a fun and creative project and an excellent way to infuse your home with the season's scents. In this DIY guide, we'll walk you through the steps to create spring-scented candles using natural ingredients and essential oils.

Materials Needed:

✔️Soy wax flakes or beeswax pellets

✔️Candle wicks

✔️Heat-resistant containers (e.g., glass jars or tins)

✔️Wick holders or chopsticks

✔️Essential oils (e.g., lavender, lemon, jasmine, rose)

✔️Double boiler or microwave-safe container


✔️Stirring utensil

✔️Optional: Candle dye or dried flowers for decoration

Step 1: Prepare Your Work Area

Set up your workspace with all the necessary materials and tools. Cover the area with newspaper or a protective surface to catch any spills or drips.

Step 2: Melt the Wax

Melt the soy wax flakes or beeswax pellets until fully liquefied using a double boiler or microwave-safe container. Monitor the temperature with a thermometer and heat the wax to around 170-180°F (77-82°C).

Step 3: Attach the Wick

While the wax is melting, prepare your containers by attaching the wicks to the bottom center using wick holders or chopsticks to keep them in place. Ensure the wick is straight and centered.

Step 4: Add Scent

Once the wax has melted, remove it from the heat source and cool slightly to around 160°F (71°C). Then, add your chosen essential oils to the wax, stirring gently to combine. Start with a few drops of essential oil and adjust to your desired fragrance strength.

Step 5: Pour the Wax

Carefully pour the scented wax into your prepared containers, ensuring the wick remains centered. Leave a small space at the top to prevent the wax from overflowing when it solidifies.

Step 6: Let the Candles Set

Allow the candles to cool and set completely, which may take several hours, depending on their size and the room's temperature. Do not move or disturb the candles during this time.

Step 7: Trim the Wick

Once the candles have thoroughly cooled and solidified, trim the wick to a length of about 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) using scissors or wick trimmers.

Step 8: Optional Decoration

If desired, you can add decorative touches to your candles by embedding dried flowers or adding a few drops of candle dye to the melted wax before pouring.

Step 9: Enjoy Your Spring-Scented Candles

Once the candles are trimmed and decorated (if desired), they are ready to be enjoyed! Light your candles and bask in the delightful scents of spring, which will fill your home with warmth and ambiance.

Creating your spring-scented candles is a rewarding and enjoyable DIY project that allows you to customize the fragrance and ambiance of your home. With just a few simple ingredients and some creativity, you can bring the essence of spring indoors and enjoy the cozy glow of homemade candles throughout the season. Happy candle-making!

How do I get my free cleaning visits?

ChirpChirp's ChirpPerks is a bonus bonanza for recurring customers that dishes out a whole month's worth of complimentary cleaning sessions sprinkled throughout the year. The more often you have us clean, the more free cleanings come your way.

Here's the scoop:

Go weekly and you are cleaned four times in most months. But when a month stretches to five weeks, that fifth one on us.

Bi-weekly?  Enjoy two sessions per month typically. Sneaky three-week months? No worries, the third one is our treat.

If you are on the schedule every 4 weeks, revel in one pristine performance eleven out of twelve months but the one where there's two cleanings, the second one is complimentary.
