DIY Anthropologie Capri Candle Diffuser Scent – Candle containers and oil

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.

Supplies Needed:

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! 🙌

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
