I recently started getting into candle making and making my own incense. I love doing this I find it such a relaxing time. Some of the scents I've concocted have been good and a few that yeah I wont do that again,lol. As I make the mixes of scents when I find one that I like a lot I started writing the recipes down so I wont forget Im making a journal for it. I made my first batch of incense cones and I can't wait to light them they are still in the drying process. I want to try some other scents one being a coffee one Im experiementing right now to see how to get the desired scent.

yes they do. I find that some scents makes everyone moods better. When I go outside to sit on the porch after they burned I can still smell it. I've had some neighboors asked what smells so good and I tell them they ask if I can make them some,lol.

Scented candles make great gifts too! I hardly know anybody that ever received a candle as a gift and gave it back or complained!
