*When candle making at home, remember to mix your essential oils with a carrier oil. Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils and “carry“ them to your skin. We do this because essential oils on their own are potent and can cause irritation when applied directly to the skin. Most carrier oils are unscented or lightly scented and don’t compromise an essential oils therapeutic properties.
