Make your own scented tealight candles from ordinary ones
I bought a whole pack of simple tealights for lovely light in room. As I burned them I thought how nice actually it was if they would have my favorite scent and all room would be filled with it. Then suddenly i had an idea how to actually give them a scent of my favorite perfume oil :D YOU just take them apart, melt them, add the scent and pour the liquid back to their little containers.

    They melt quite nicely. When it's all liquid, put your perfume oil in and stir gently but well. I melted six candles so I added about 12 drops. Two drops for a candle. I didn't wanted to overdo with it. Add more for a stronger scent.

    Carefully pour melted wax into containers with wicks placed back. Correct wicks if needed. The stuff is really hot so be careful. It's best to place empty containers oc a small cutting board before pouring wax back in. It will help to transport them to the fridge for a faster cool down.
