Choose your ingredients: I have chosen cinnamon powder, clove buds, star anise, and salt as the base ingredient.
Add them all to your chosen bowl, If it is the right size, otherwise add them to a mixing bowl to be divided up into smaller containers later.
Mix them all together. If you have used a powder spice, your salt will change colour, giving it a warm spicy look.
Add your essential oils. I have used our synergistic spicy Christmas blend.
Grate some orange zest into the mixture. This gives it a wonderful citrusy smell. The salt will preserve this fresh ingredient, so you don’t have to worry about it growing a ‘suspect green fungus’.
Add more salt to bring it up to the required level in the bowl. Insert a tealight candle in the centre, and it is ready for use.
When the candle is lit, and as the salt warms up, the delicious spicy scent is released. Voila! You can add another candle when this one burns out, you can add a few more drops of your selection of oils when the smell becomes faint. The options are many. Enjoy!
