I’m a sucker for mint scents. Especially when it comes to my home.

Mint pairs well with practically any scent out there, so today I decided to make cucumber and mint a duo.

The aroma reminds me of a nice summer day by the pool, drinking a refreshing drink. A cucumber mojito possibly? Yum.

When I’m feeling the winter blues, lighting up this DIY Cucumber Mint Mason Jar Candle knocks me right off my feet and gives me the energy that is much needed.

If you can find a cucumber mint fragrance oil, great! That fragrance is pretty common and can easily be found in your local department or craft store.

Another option is combining plain cucumber fragrance oil with peppermint essential oil. Both ways smell equally as good, so whichever is easier to find for you!

Usually, when it comes to mixing fragrance oils with essential oils, I don’t recommend it for skin care products.

For today, since we are making a candle, mixing will be just fine.

But let me tell you, I can’t get enough! Smells so pure and fresh.

Below I have included free labels that you can download, print, and use for your amazing creations.

  • I included 2 different sizes depending on the size of jar you plan on using.
  • I use these Avery Full Sheet Stickers for all of my handmade health & beauty products.

Ingredients:



Directions:

With a hot glue gun, glue the bottom of the wick to the bottom of your mason jar. This helps it stay in place when pouring in your wax. You can also use some melted wax to attach the wick to the bottom, but I find that a glue gun is so much easier.

Wrap the wick around a pencil or long stick and place on top of your mason jar. This also helps the candle wick stay center while pouring.

Melt soy wax flakes in a large pyrex measuring cup. You can do this either by the double boiler method or in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.

Add one crayon for color. I used a yellow-green crayon from Crayola. If you desire a lighter color, use half a crayon.

To get an idea of how much wax flakes you’ll need, think of it as needing double the size of your jar.

Once melted stir in fragrance oil or essential oil.

Pour wax mixture into your mason jars and let sit for 3 hours or overnight.

Cut the wick to 1-4″.


Keep in mind, that every fragrance oil and essential oil are different in potency. Only you can get a good idea of how much to use in your candles depending on how strong they smell.

I find that essential oils have a stronger scent to them then fragrance oils do. Therefore, add more fragrance oil than you would essential oil.

Add the free printable label that’s available to you and light your DIY Cucumber Mint Mason Jar Candle.

Hey, these will even make awesome gifts! One can never go wrong when gifting candles.

This recipe makes three 6-oz jars, two 8-oz jars, or one 16-oz mason jar.

This is just an estimate, so if you find that you didn’t end up with enough wax, you can easily melt some more and top off your candle/s.
