Make Something Sunday: DIY Palo Santo Scented Candles

Thank you for stopping by Make Something Sunday, where we post a new craft every Sunday from our favorite DIY bloggers! We want to inspire you to create at home with simple and fun crafts. Let's get started! 

This week we are featuring a craft from Kristin of Bliss Makes. Kristin lives in Las Vegas and making is her meditation. She loves to create in different ways, including making funky, unique home decor and recipe testing. Today we are making Kristin's Palo Santo Scented Candles. We love burning Palo Santo sticks, the scent is woodsy and herbaceous. Its intoxicating! We love the idea of making a candle with the scent. For the candles you will need beeswax pastilles, coconut oil, Palo Santo essential oil, cotton wick, and 2 vessels for the candles. You will also need access to a stove, a pot, mason jar, and wood skewer. When purchasing Palo Santo essential oil, its important to get pure essential oil. Make sure it isn't mixed with any carrier oils or that it isn't an artificial fragrance oil. 

We think our etched Chicago Star Rocks Glass would make the perfect vessel for these candles! They would make great housewarming or hostess gifts.

We would love to see your take on this craft! Tag us on social media with the handles below and #makesomethingsunday and we’ll send you a code for $5 off at the shop (one per person)!
