"I absolutely love essential oils! Every night, I diffuse lavender by my bed and have a special bedtime blend for Romeo. There's so much you can do with them, we decided to make DIY Essential Oil Candles, with soy, using two beautiful scents that go together well, lavender and lemon. Lavender oil has a calming effect that helps relieve stress and anxiety and lemon is great for cleaning and purification. The great thing about making your own essential oil candles is that you can create a custom scent for yourself or someone special! They make wonderful gifts!"

I would love to have a candle or two with certain scents and I'm sure my daughter would, too. I got an essential oil diffuser and a set of oils for Christmas last year. I had never done much with them, but I am learning and they're awesome. A candle makes using the oils easy.

I seriously need to get my hands on some essential oils. I had your typical hobby Lobby fragrance oils when I made melt-and-pour candles, but they just smell so synthetic. This sounds much better!

Essential oils are the best! These would make the best personalized gifts because you can choose the best scent for your best friends!
