Do you love luxury-scented Capri Candles?
Our Hip2Save team may be just a wee bit obsessed with these heavenly smelling Anthropologie candles in a jar, including me. In fact, I set out to DIY the Capri Blue Volcano scent, as it’s a perfect blend of citrus, floral, and woodsy scents, and can make any room smell so fresh and relaxing.
Just look at Collin’s stash of Capri candles! 😱
At full price, the 19oz. sized jar candles can range around $28, like this one on Amazon. However, at Hip2Save, we occasionally feature online deals on Capri Blue candles, and those shelves above are proof that Collin has been taking advantage of those deals! 😉
You can find a huge assortment of these candles in-store and online at Anthropologie, which is why that store smells so magical!
Let’s DIY that scent!
Even though I have a scented candle addiction, too, I’ve actually been trying to use my essential oil diffuser more instead. Diffusing essential oil is a brilliant way to naturally scent the home, and it’s so easy to do. It can also be more frugal to diffuse instead of buying candles and wall plug-ins. Plus, I love that you don’t have to worry as much about a possible fire as you do with candles.
Today, I’m sharing a blend you can diffuse at home that smells similar to Capri Blue Volcano candles using essential oils! It blends both tangerine and grapefruit citrus essential oils with geranium and cypress.
The Aura Cacia brand I’m using is available at my local natural food store, and I enjoy it. Feel free to use whichever brand of essential oils you prefer, as I know there are so many options! Also, I’m sure orange can be subbed in for tangerine and Pine for Cypress (pick your favorite woodsy scent). You can play around with different amounts as well.
DIY Capri Blue Volcano Candle Diffusing Scent
Add about 200 ml of water and essential oils to the diffuser. Turn on and enjoy this relaxing scent.
This blend really does smell similar!
If you love Capri Blue Volcano candles then this DIY is for you! What a fun way to make your home smell beautiful like the Anthro store, but while enjoying essential oils. I think it’s a fantastic way to get a similar smell to the luxury candles we love so much!
Even better? At roughly 288 drops of oil per 1/2 ounce bottle of essential oils, you get about 690 hours of scented bliss – and for less than one third the price of the seven Anthropologie candles it would take to equal that amount! Talk about making lots of scents – and saving lots of cents! 🙌
