Step 1: To make a strong instant coffee, mix two teaspoons of instant coffee with about half a cup of water.

Step 2: Fill the heatproof beaker halfway with soy wax flakes and place it on a smooth-top burner. Stir until the wax is completely melted.

Step 3: Add a spoonful of coffee and a few drops of vanilla essential oil and coffee fragrance oil to the candle wax. Stir until everything is thoroughly combined.

Step 4: Place a pre-waxed candle wick in the coffee mug and secure it with a metal wick holder.

Step 5: Put on the heatproof glove and carefully pour the melted candle wax into the cup, leaving about an inch at the top.

Step 6: Once the wax has cooled sufficiently to be semisolid, place whole coffee beans on top of the candle.

Step 7: To make it look nice, trim the wick and tie a piece of jute string in a bow around the mug’s base.

  1. Coffee Fragrance Oil: Coffee Fragrance Oil has a strong scent of coffee beans and creamy vanilla. Other prominent notes include tonka beans, chocolate, coconut, and amber. The prominent essences in this fragrance oil give it a warm, earthy scent that draws a lot of attention.
  1. A glass coffee mug will be needed to hold your candle. It’s a fantastic way to recycle mugs and prevent them from going to waste.
  1. Soy Wax Flakes: Soy wax is a natural resource that is renewable. Soy wax flakes are biodegradable and can be cleaned with soap and water. Furthermore, because soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, soy candles burn slower and last longer.
  1. Vanilla Essential Oil: While Vanilla Essential Oil is wonderful on its own, it also blends well with a variety of other essential oils. For example, blending with coffee creates a warm, rustic, and welcoming atmosphere.
  1. Wax Coated Candle Wicks: Wax Coated Candle Wicks can be used to make a variety of candles. These cotton candle wicks are pre-waxed and produce very little smoke, making them ideal for use in the home. They’re also designed so that they burn longer, don’t curl, and don’t leave cotton ashes behind.
  1. Metal Wick Holder: Metal Wick holders are wick cantering or wick managing devices used in candlemaking. This wick cantering mechanism is made of high-quality metal and helps to save time and effort by keeping the wick upright. Any type of candle container can be used with metal wick holders.


Candle making is a very simple process that does not necessitate a lot of technical knowledge. It really is as easy as melting and pouring! In this blog, we discussed making your own coffee-scented candle with coffee fragrance oil.

By making your coffee-scented candle from upcycled and natural materials, you can fill your home with that delightful, stimulating coffee fragrance whenever you want.
