Before embarking upon which essential oils are required for candle making it is essential to understand what essential oils are. 
 
 An extract from flowers, herbs, plants or fruits in the form of oils are termed as essential oils and are unique as you get the properties of the flower or plant thereof easily in readymade form without having to do much yourself. They are expensive and are applied in candle making for a scented effect.  
 
Some essential oils used in candle making are - 

  • Jasmine 
  • Rose 
  • Vanilla 
  • Lavender 
  • Orchid 
  • Patchouli 
  • Lime 
  • Cinnamon 
  • Sandalwood 
  • Cedar wood 
  • Coconut 
  • Basil 
  • Eucalyptus 
  • Frankincense 

 
The essential oils are then mixed in the candles while making and the candles thereby attain the properties of the essential oil mixed.
