Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Aromatic candles are a vital part of the aromatherapy movement. These are not the ordinary scented candles found everywhere that candles are sold. Aromatic candles contain special floral or herbal essential oils that must be blended for the desired effect. These step-by-step projects by Warda, an executive with the firm AromaLand, include recipes and lists of intended benefits for such exotic scents as patchouli and frankincense as well as ordinary herbs and spices. The candlemaking instructions are the same as those found in other recent books, so the value of this book is in the detailed information on scents and essential oils. This is a specialized book that will find a place in general crafts and New Age collections.

Format: Hardcover
Excellent book with a good background on etheric oils, how to recognise and combine them and finally how to prepare candles using the different oils. The book has a very nice layout with a lot of pictures inviting to be very creative!
Material needed is quite a lot (especially if you start from scratch) but if preparation of candles is not a "one-shot-event" it is definitely a good investment. After a little bit of training these candles are the best presents to good friends and you can be sure to be invited again! ;-)

Format: Hardcover
This is a very pretty book, but deceptive. The recipes call for a few drops of essential oil per candle - if you like your candles fragrant (ie. the kind of person that would be attracted by the title) you will find these have little or no smell. I was also puzzled that the author called for vanilla essential oil, because, well, there's no such thing, it doesn't exist.

If you don't care about that but think the candles are gorgeous, don't expect yours to look like these. The most glaring example is the bayberry candle - the author calls for genuine bayberry wax instead of fragrance and adds no color. The candle pictured is dark red, but natural bayberry wax is pale green, and by following the directions you won't get anything remotely resembling the photo. Also many of the candles are two colors, and the order given for pouring them will give candles with colors in the opposite order and proportion than what's pictured, and the instructions on temperature control of the wax are inadequate to give a smooth join between colors. And there's a gorgeous marbled candle that I would love to know how they did, but the method described won't give you a candle that looks anything like the picture.

This book seems to fit into the category of another pretty craft book that doesn't have good instructions and just ends up disappointing.
