 Crisp Apple Soy Candle Jars: An Irresistible Classic Candle Scent

How to make crisp apple soy candle jars with a classic candle scent that is good all year! Because who can resist a fresh fruity scented candle?

Are you drawn to fresh fruity, candle scents?

I most certainly am! Apple is our family’s favorite fruit, and that is saying a lot, considering we love so many fruits – strawberries, lemons, blackberries, peaches, mangoes, blueberries, kiwis, bananas, and pumpkin for those of you who call it a fruit… There’s something about biting into a fresh crisp apple on any given day.

When it comes down to it, apple is a fruit we have access to all year and although I bake with it most in Autumn, we enjoy apples in recipes during every season. Maybe that’s why many Americans agree the scent of crisp apple soy candle jars is a classic candle scent to be enjoyed all year round!

There’s just one problem – how do you find the best apple candle scent?

What’s the Best Apple Candle Scent?

Unfortunately, apple is one of those fruits that cannot effectively be steam distilled to produce essential oil. So, you can either choose a natural candle fragrance composed of aromatic isolates from apples or a standard candle fragrance oil that mimics the scent of apples.

And if you want to make an apple candle with essential oils you’ll have to get creative. I’ve included the two apple essential oils blends below and the best natural and standard apple fragrance oils for candle making. All of which will create one of the best apple candle scents!

Natural Candle Fragrance Oils:

Green Apple

Ambrosia Apple + Hyacinth

Apple Rind + Cinnamon

Standard Candle Fragrance Oils:

Red Apple

Macintosh Apple

Apple Sage

Essential Oil Apple Blend:

15 ml Ginger essential oil

15 ml Sweet Orange essential oil

Essential Oil Apple Pie Blend:

5 ml Lemongrass essential oil

15 ml Cinnamon essential oil

5 ml Grapefruit essential oil

5 ml Bergamot essential oil

How to Make Crisp Apple DIY Soy Candle Jars

In just a few steps you’ll learn how to make crisp apple soy candle jars with a classic candle scent that is good all year! Because who can resist a fresh fruity scented candle?

If this is your first time making scented candles, see our complete Scented Candle Guide to learn candle fragrance terms, types, and how to calculate the right amount of fragrance to get the best scent every time. For this recipe, you’ll need 1 ounce total of fragrance for a 6.3 percent fragrance load.

And if you’re not familiar with wood wicks, see my Wood Wick Candle Guide.

Soy Candle Supplies:

1-ounce candle fragrance oil

4 medium wood wicks

2 wood wick clips

1 lb soy wax flakes

4 glue dots

4 mason jars, 4 oz

Many Americans agree the crisp scent of apple is a classic candle scent to be enjoyed all year round! Here's how to make crisp apple soy candle jars.

Instructions to make Apple DIY Soy Candle Jars:

1. First place two wood wicks into each wick clip. Use a wick sticker tab or glue dot if you don’t have one, to adhere to the center base of each heat-safe ramekin. 

2. Next, use a digital kitchen scale to measure 1 pound of soy wax. Pour it into a candle melting pitcher and place it inside a pot filled with about 2 inches of water to safely melt the wax with the double boiler method. Melt over medium to low heat with a gentle simmer at most, stirring often. (Never leave melting wax unattended.) 

3. Remove the candle pitcher of melted wax from the heat source and check the temperature of the wax with an infrared thermometer to make sure it’s under the flashpoint of your fragrance oil before you add it.

4. After adding your fragrance oil stir slowly, but constantly for 2 minutes for a great scent throw. Then carefully pour the scented wax into each prepared mason jar, avoiding the top of the wood wicks. (Do not fill to the top of the mason jars. Leave room for a safe melt pool.) 

5. Let your DIY wood wick candles cool for 30 minutes to 1 hour before trimming wicks. Cut wood wicks to approximately ⅛ an inch above the wax for the best burn rate.

Give these homemade candles a least 3 days to cure before burning to get a good scent throw. 1 to 2 weeks will make the scent even stronger if you can wait that long!
