There's something so relaxing about burning a candle. Whether you're chilling out watching some feel-good TV or reading in the bath, the flicker of a flame and a beautiful scent can instantly lift your mood. Sure, youcouldbuy a candle in the shops, but creating you very own personalised version is even better.

Making something yourself is so satisfying, plus you can customise everything from the jar and scent to the label. Even better, they make a super-thoughtful gift for a friend or a lovely pick-me-up from you to, well, you. This version can be made for under £10, so at this time of year when money is tight and the weather is rubbish, why not give it a try? Click through below to find out how it's done (in 10 easy steps).

For one 190-millilitre candle, add 80 grams of wax pellets to a glass bowl.

2. Boil Water

Boil a kettle of water, and pour into your pan until it's half full. Place the glass bowl on top of the pan over a medium-heated hob.

3. Melt Your Wax

Wax melts at around 55º, which takes around five to 10 minutes.

4. Add Fragrance Oils
