What Are CBD Candles?
Candles were originally meant for lighting, but industries have found more uses for candles, and CBD candles are one example of a different type of candle with time. Wallace et al. (2021) explained that inhaling CBD may seem like inhaling cannabis, but a CBD candle is not meant to be an alternative to smoking cannabis. The CBD candle is like an ordinary candle, except the CBD candle comes laced with CBD oil. CBD oil is extracted from the stalks, flowers, and leaves of cannabis. Still, it does not cause intoxication because it undergoes processes such as distillation and diluting. It is added to a wax mixture, and thus a CBD candle is created. GABARDO et al. (2017) explained that going through the distillation and diluting makes CBD candles perfect for aromatherapy.

The CBD scent may be very sweet, depending on one preference. When choosing the CBD scent, you should be careful as you would be when choosing the scent of a perfume or the cream you like.
For Health Benefits

When the candles melt and are used on the skin, it nourishes the skin because it absorbs the CBD, healing and nourishing properties. Gonzales (2021) explained that CBD candles could lower your blood pressure and improve your sleeping pattern. Women suffering from inflammation and menstrual cramps may feel better from inhaling CBD.

How to make the CBD candle
Follow these steps keenly to make your perfect CBD candle;
Measure the wax
You first need to make sure that your working area is clean. You may protect the area with paper towels or a newspaper. Measure the wax you need for your candle. Fill the stainless container with the wax, then double it.
Melt the wax
Place the container on some source of fire while stirring it for 10-15 minutes until it melts completely.
Add the CBD oil
You will add CBD oil when the wax is in the molten state. Keep stirring as you pour the CBD oil so the contents may mix evenly. Pour as much CBD oil as you would like your candle to have.
Attach the wick to the other container
You have two containers. One is narrow, and the other is wide. The wider container has molten wax, and the narrower container does not have anything. Place the wick into the narrower container, and you can attach it at the bottom with super glue to stay put.
Pour the molten wax into the narrower container.
You will hold the wick while pouring the molten wax into the container. Do not pull the wick. Molten wax should be no more than 140 degrees. Use your thermometer to check. Make sure that the wick stays in place with chopsticks or pencils on the container, and the wick rests between them, probably stuck on them with superglue. The wick should stay so that it may dry with the wax.
Add more wax
When the wax has hardened, add more wax to it to seal any hole or crack. Then you will let it harden.
Cut the wick
Cut the wick from the pencils or chopsticks, and it should not be shorter than half an inch long. Your candle is now ready for use.
