This recipe is a must for all nature lovers! Made with soy wax and boreal forest fragrance extract, this candle will bring a calm atmosphere and allow you to recharge your batteries.


Warmly, the Vert Essentiel team shares with you some easy tips to make beautiful boreal candles and how to decorate them. For this recipe, you will need:


  • Bonheur Essentiel candle making kit

  • 5 glass jars, or any non-plastic container, about 125 ml each. The Mason jar style works great.

  • A hot glue gun

  • A piece of 8 x 11 cardboard to make 5 tutors (An empty cereal box will do)

  • A pair of scissors

  • A large glass measuring cup

  • A pot

  • A roll of natural linen rope or any other decorative rope

  • A bottle of boreal forest fragrance extract from o’Nature

  • A branch of pine, fir or spruce.


1- With the hot glue gun, glue a wick to the bottom of each glass jar, in the center. Déposer colle chaude sous mèche de chandelle   Coller la mèche au fond du pot de verre bien au centre    


2-Pour the soy wax into a large measuring cup and place in a pot of water. Melt the wax in this bain-marie over low heat.

3- Meanwhile, make your supports. Cut out 5 squares slightly larger than the opening of the pots. Cut out one side of each square to the center with a small hole in the center.

6- On each pot, place the prepared cardboard tutor so that the wick stands straight in the center.

7- Let cool for 3 hours or until wax sets and cut off the end of any wicks that are too long.

8- For the decoration, cut a small piece of rope long enough to make a small knot and a loop. With your hands, detach 2 small pieces of the pine branch and glue them to the back of the loop with hot glue. Place this decorative loop on the candle with the hot glue. And there you go, a beautiful natural decorative candle that smells wonderful!
