1) DIY Candles
Don't you think candles making is the most soothing thing that you would ever want to do is especially I just love making candles and I had this teenage dream of a starting my own candles company however that never worked out so well but I still love making candles to decorate my house and instead of buying candles from outside its much better to make them with the things that are already present in your house and that way you wouldn't have to compromise on the colors and fragrance and decorations as well you can do anything you like? So along with birthday flowers, it would be amazing to add handmade candles as a gift. Now you can take any wax which is present in your household you can buy online. I prefer paraffin because it's easily available and there are no chances of it being fake so I always avoid beeswax because there are too many hoax products out there. You can add food colors if you don't have any candles colors. You can add food essence or extracts like vanilla, pineapple, mango, orange, peach whatever you like and essential oils 2-3 drops would be amazing too. Thus you can put this mixture in a mold with a candle wick and let it rest for about 3 hours. There you go your candles are ready you can also do other flavors especially according to the season like for the holidays you can do coffee and cinnamon. So you can just add cinnamon sticks and a little bit of cinnamon powder into the wax. And if you doing coffee then you can add coffee beans at the base of a glass or jar whatever you are taking or into the mold. Your amazing holiday candles are ready to decorate your house or to give them along with a gift or you can even give them as a gift but make sure it with flowers or anything extra added on.
2) DIY Perfumes
With this latest trend coming along that used to prevail in our societies around in the 1900s of almost all the ingredients that were used in perfumes were natural except, the emulsifiers that added on to make it last longer. So basically making a perfume by yourself is the easiest thing that you would ever do and the best part is that you don't have to add any harsh chemicals into it phone storage because these perfumes of basically a combination of a few oils and you'll be on the go. And I like to use roll-on because they are easier to apply and gift to rather than the normal spray bottles. And you can be artistic over here and add many other DIY gifts like homemade skin powders, eye shadows, etc. along with cake and flower delivery in Bangalore or any other city.
3) DIY Rose Lipsticks
