As we get into the cold, grey winter months, shelves are starting to explode with a slightly overwhelming cacosmia of candles, diffusion rods, and incense. Honestly, I love a good candle. I find the atmosphere of the flickering light rather cosy and safe, as well as kicking off the festive season with the smell of gingerbread and musk. However, candles can cost anywhere from £2-£25 depending on their size and quality, which normally stops them from being an impulse item (for me anyway). You are literally just burning money.

Instead, inspired by  Joselyn HughesDIY DAMMIT videos, I mostly make my own candles.  It works out to be cheaper, less wasteful, and you can experiment t0 discover your own unique signature scent.
