Scented Candles are made when essential oils are mixed into candle wax during the creation process. As the candle burns, the scents are released and fill the area that you light the candles in. Scented candles can be made from soy, beeswax, or any other typical waxes used to create candles. Scents vary wildly and is only limited to the imagination. Scented Candles are often made in pillar form since pillar candles are some of the longest lasting candles.
