This DIY scented Mason jar candle is an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up your home and add a classy piece of decor.
DIY Scented Mason Jar Candle: Evergreen & Herb Mason Jar Candle
I don’t know about you, but by late winter and early spring I really dislike the way my house smells. With all the windows shut tight and the furnace going, I notice food smells a lot more. Plus, it just smells kind of stagnant, do you know what I mean? I can’t wait to open the windows and roll out the welcome mat for fresh air! 🙂 Unfortunately, the air is still a little too brisk to do that just yet… so I’m freshening up my home with this DIY scented Mason jar candle.
Making soy Mason jar candles is really not as hard as I thought it would be and making them is so much cheaper than buying them! Plus, by making Mason jar soy candles instead of purchasing them you know you’re getting an all-natural fragrance instead of something created by chemicals.
This super easy scented Mason jar candle recipe will have your home smelling like fresh evergreens and herbs in no time. (Okay, it’ll actually take a couple of hours because you have to put the candle in the fridge to solidify but the actual hands on time is very little!)
In addition to being easy to make and having a great (all-natural) scent, I love the look of this scented Mason jar candle. The sprigs of green rosemary in all that creamy white soy give it just a touch of color while keeping the overall candle pretty neutral, meaning it goes with just about any decor color scheme. If you’re looking for something simple and sophisticated, I think you get that with this soy Mason jar candle.
Looking for a candle that’s a little more funky and fun? Try this easy soy Mason jar candle recipe for funfetti Mason jar soy candles. It won’t smell as strong as this evergreen and herb scented Mason jar candle but it does have a vanilla fragrance.
These soy Mason jar candles would also make great Mason jar centerpieces, especially for holiday parties or outdoor garden parties in the evening. Obviously, they’re probably not ideal for a kids party (children and fire don’t mix!), but otherwise they’re a frugal and chic addition to any get-together. 🙂
It’s easy to scale this recipe for soy Mason jar candles up (to make more than one) so make one as a centerpiece for each table or to line a long table with. You can also make extras and give them as gifts. Trust me, this is one candle folks will be glad to receive as a gift.
1. Press rosemary springs in a heavy book overnight.
2. Add 2 cups of soy wax flakes to a glass measuring cup and heat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
3. Remove wax from the microwave and stir until melted.
4. Add 15 drops of each essential oil to melted wax and mix well.
5. Dip the bottom of the wick into the melted wax and set it in the bottom center of the Mason jar.
WARNING: Be careful; the melted wax will be hot!
6. Dip rosemary in the wax and press against the sides of the Mason jar.
7. Carefully pour melted wax into the Mason jar, making sure the herbs stay pressed against the sides.
Note: Leave about an inch open at the top.
8. Place your scented Mason jar candle in the fridge for a couple of hours to solidify.
9. Remove soy Mason jar candle from the fridge, trim the wick, and enjoy the all-natural scent.
WARNING: Never leave any burning candle, including Mason jar soy candles, unattended.

I also appreciate that Young Living guarantees no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of their oils, and that they are the only company that has their own farms, so they can ensure the quality of their oils.
