DIY Tea Infused Candles


If scented candles aren’t your cup of tea, then why not turn your cup of tea into scented candles? At least that’s what Francesca of Fall For DIY did when she realized that she could make essential oils from her favorite teas.

I knew you used essential oils to flavour scented candles, but what was there to stop you making tea flavoured essential oils? Turns out absolutely nothing. It’s so easy and works so well. To make DIY tea infused scented candles all you have to do is pick your favourite flavour of tea.

Perhaps the cleverest part of this whole tutorial is that it uses an actual tea cup to house the candle so that, in the end, the candles literally are your cup of tea!
