Am Essentials – Bee Wax Candle With Essential Oils

am essentials herbal beeswax candle

My Am Essentials Herbal Beeswax Candle review focuses on the new beeswax candle fragrance. Beeswax is a natural product derived from the combs of bees. It has a very high melting point and because of that it heats up quickly and produces a very attractive scent. Beeswax candles are often used as carrier oils for aromatherapy, as scent and as a moisturizer.

I decided to test this out on my own skin and hair to see if it would smell good on me. I also bought two bottles of this beeswax candle liquid and two bottles of the essence oil. Both blends smell wonderful! The beeswax candle has a very distinct aroma that is very clean and fresh. The essence of the candle is light and lemony.

In contrast, the essence oil has a very rich and deep herbal smell. It almost smells like chocolate! Both oils are very deep and linger beautifully on your skin, they really do smell like you’ve gone out into the garden and enjoyed baking with your loved ones. Both essential oils are very sensual and sensuous.

If You Want To Scent An Entire Home Then You Can Use One Of These Beeswax Candles

If you want to scent an entire home then you could use one of these beeswax candles. However, if you only want to scent one or two rooms then you can purchase separately. These are available in a few different scents such as Sweet Marjory, Moroccan Mint, Sweet Pea and Lavender Rose. Each has its own unique smell.

As with all essential oils they are very light and bear no discernible scent at all. You can use them in their pure form with your favorite fragrance or you can dilute them with carrier oil or a carrier oil base. You can also try using them with scented candles. You will find that many of the scents complement each other.

The carrier oils used with these candles are very good for creating aromatherapy candles. They give the scent and affect very well. When used with essential oils, you get the added benefits of softening and balancing the scent. They are great for creating unique candle scents for special occasions or a relaxing night in.

Beeswax Is A Very Strong And Subtle Scent

The beeswax itself is a very strong scent, but it’s subtle. You need to experiment a little to determine exactly how much scent you want. There are several different types of beeswax on the market. Some of them have a more pronounced scent and some don’t. Experimenting to find which type will produce the scent you want.

There are two types of containers to use with Am Essentials beeswax candle: jars or tins. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages. Jars can be easier to store and use. Tins are better for transportation because they are easier to break. Make the best choice for your specific needs.

jars vs. tins When using jars you can easily get out all the scent oils that would ordinarily be stored inside, but you also have to make sure that you have an airtight container. Depending on the amount of scent that is needed, you may not want to overcrowd the jar so the aroma can really make its presence known. This can be counterproductive.

Tins Are Better For Storing These Candles

On the other hand, tins are better for storing candles. They are more difficult to break so you can spread the wax out without worry. They tend to burn slower and longer so you will always have a consistent scent inside the jar. They can be sealed at the bottom so they don’t burn as fast.

If you’re concerned about how the finished product might smell, Am Essentials offers an option called the Eau-Cedar Candle Bundle. The bundle consists of a jar, a burner and three scented candles. This is a good way to mix up the types of fragrance that you want to use for your candles.

Bottom Line

It’s also easy to get the jars or tins in other shapes. You can get them in traditional square shape or circular shape. The only thing that is certain is that you’ll still be able to store the wax securely. That means that you can always have your jars or totes at your fingertips when you need them for a moment.
