Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Is your nose stuffy and congested? One way I like to combat stuffiness is with a aromatherapy candle. This DIY Sinus Relief Candle will help open your nasal passages with a calming and relaxing scent.

Candle making is an easy process to do at home. There are no special tools or equipment needed to make this sinus relief candle. Just a few simple steps and you will be a candle maker in no time.

Hello there! This is Katie from the blog, Purely Katie. I love to create easy and budget-friendly projects. I have many candle making tutorials on my blog and thought that I would share a new recipe with you on BOP.

I suffer from seasonal allergies so I thought I would make a aromatherapy candle to help relieve some of my symptoms. This DIY Sinus Relief Candle is made with eucalyptus, peppermint and tea tree essential oils.

  • Eucalyptus is a fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia. As an ingredient in many products, it is used to reduce symptoms of coughs, colds, and congestion.
  • Peppermint is used as a dietary supplement for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), other digestive problems, the common cold, headaches, and other conditions.
  • Tea Tree, when used in aromatherapy, has demonstrated its ability to naturally support and boost immune system health and fight infections, as it diminishes the detrimental feeling of stress, which facilitates illness.

Not only does this candle smell amazing, but the benefits from the essential oils will help with sinus symptoms can have a calming effect.

How To Make A DIY Sinus Relief Candle:

Step 1: Start by applying one glue dot to the metal tab on the candle wick. Then, place the tab in the bottom center of a glass jar (I am using a 8 oz glass jar). Set aside.

If you have never used Glue Dots for candle making, they are a game changer. The adhesive holds the wick in place without using a clamping system.

Step 2: Place 1 and a half cups of natural soy wax flakes for an 8 oz glass container and 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a microwavable bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until the supplies are melted  I added 20 drops of eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils and 15 drops of tea tree essential oil to the melted wax.  You can add desired amount of oils.

Side Note: I am using a blue crayon to color my wax.  This step is optional.  If you use a crayon, remove the paper and place it in the bowl with the wax and coconut oil and melt.

Step 3: Pour the scented liquid candle wax into the prepared jar.  Set aside and let harden.  The candle wax will change to a white color once it is completely set and hardened. Trim the wick by cutting it with a pair of scissors.

Finally, I made simple label for your candle.  This would make a great all-occasion gift for someone special.  I really like how the kraft brown sticker labels look on these jars.  I used a pair of scissors to cut the label. You can resize the printable to fit your container.

What a wonderful DIY project! I’ve never made a candle before, but now after reading this helpful post, I feel like it’s something I could do successfully. I agree that beautiful homemade candles are great for gift giving. They’re a sweet way of showing love for friends, neighbors and families during this stay-at-home time. Just leave it on their doorstep with a cheerful little note!
