Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for Whipped Portion of Candle

85 grams Joy Wax
8 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Jar for the Candle

First, prepare your mug.  We use a glass mug that we picked up at our local grocery store.  Our mug was slightly under 3.5 inches in diameter.  So, we used a CD-12 wick in our mug.  The size of the wick that you use will depend upon the diameter of the mug you are using for your candle.  While I can’t tell you the exact size you will need, I can tell you that I highly recommend the CD candle wicks when using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Our size recommendations, based on diameter, can be found in the description of our CD candle wicks at the link in the ingredients list above.
Once you have determined your wick size, use a hot glue gun to adhere the candle wick to the bottom of your jar.  You will want to make sure the wick is centered in the mug.  Once your wick is in place unplug your hot glue gun and move on to the next step.

Now, let’s prepare our Joy Wax.  In order to melt the Joy Wax, we will use a double boiler.  This will slowly melt the wax and prevent it form scorching.  You will need to first prepare a pot of water. The pot only needs to be filled with a few inches of water. Heat the water.  Once you have your wax weighed out, you will need to place your pouring pot inside the hot water to melt the wax.
So, in your pouring pot, weigh out 455 grams of Joy Wax.  Then, place the pouring pot inside the pot containing the water.  Allow the wax to melt.  Once the temperature reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the pot from the heat.

Next, we will be adding our colorant.  When using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax the colorant should be added at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, for this candle recipe we will need both Spectrum yellow candle dye and Spectrum brown liquid candle dye.  Now, we only need a little bit of each.  While it can be hard to get just a small amount of liquid candle dye out with a dropper, it is not impossible.  In order to get just a small amount you will simply need a couple of toothpicks.  First, we will add the yellow candle colorant.  Go ahead and dip your first toothpick into the yellow colorant.  Then, dip the yellow colorant into the candle wax.  Throw this toothpick in the trash.  Next, dip your second toothpick into the brown candle dye.  Then, dip this same toothpick into the candle wax.  Throw your second toothpick into the garbage.  Finally, mix to fully disperse the candle colorants.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance OilEggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance Oil

When working with Joy Wax, we suggest adding your fragrance oil between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.  So, today, we will be using Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  We couldn’t create an eggnog candle without an eggnog scent, right?  So, we will be using 10% fragrance oil for this recipe.  So, when your wax is at the correct temperature, add 45 grams of your Natures Garden Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  Then, make sure you mix the candle wax for about 30 seconds.  This will ensure that your eggnog scent is completely blended with the candle wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle Wax

Now, we will be pouring our candle wax.  When using Joy Wax, we recommend pouring your candle wax in warmed jars.  By warming your candle jars before pouring into them, it will help your wax to cling very nicely to your jars.  This is because your wax cools very slowly, allowing time for air bubble to release from the wax and thus the wax adhere to the walls of the jars better.  You want to put your jars into the oven at the very lowest setting.  So, turn your oven on the lowest temperature possible.  Then, place the jars on a pan and in the oven for just a few minutes. Do not allow them to get hot, they only need to be warm.

When pouring the wax, the temperature should be between 160 degrees Fahrenheit and 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once your candle wax reaches this temperature, pour the wax into your jar.  Make sure your wick is centered and secured in the center.  I use a fine tooth comb to keep my wicks in place.  Place the comb across the jar’s opening and put the wick centered in between the teeth of the comb.  Lastly, allow the candle wax to setup before moving to the next step.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Melting the Wax for the Whipped Topping

Joy wax can easily be used as a whipped topping on your candles.  For this particular recipe, we will be using 85 grams of Joy Wax.  However, we will be leaving this portion of the candle uncolored.  Once again, we will be using a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  So, go ahead and melt the wax using this method. However, this time bring the wax to a temperature between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  The Joy Wax does not need to get any hotter since we are not adding any candle colorants to it.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil to the Whipped Topping Portion of the Candle Wax

Now, we will be adding fragrance oil to the whipped topping portion of the candle wax.  Once your candle wax temperature is between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit, add 8 grams of the Eggnog scent.  Then, mix the fragrance oil into the wax with a clean mixing spoon.  Stir for about 30 second to be sure that the Eggnog Fragrance Oil is completely mixed with the Joy Wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

Next, we will begin whipping the Joy Wax.  This portion of the wax will be placed on the top of our main candle.  This will give your candle the look of a creamy top that you see on a glass of eggnog.  While it may look more complicated, all the topping requires is cooled and whipped Joy Wax.  All you will need is the candle wax and a mixing spoon.

 

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

So, you want to allow your Joy Wax to cool.  As it cools stir it periodically.  Once it is at a thicker consistency, begin mixing until it takes on a whipped topping type consistency. Once the Joy Wax has reached this consistency, use a spoon to scoop it on top of your setup candle.  While you are topping the candle, make sure you keep your candle wick centered.

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing TouchesEggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing Touches

There are a couple of things we will be adding to the candle to finish it off.  First, we will be adding a small cinnamon stick.  I should note that this will need to be removed prior to burning, but it does give your candle an adorable finishing touch.  We will also be grinding and adding cinnamon to the top of the candle.

First, we will add a cinnamon stick.  Place the cinnamon stick vertically, but slightly angled right inside your candle.  It should stick out slightly though.  You want it to look like it is floating in your jar.

In addition, we will need to grind just a little bit of a cinnamon stick.  We will grind the cinnamon using a cheese grater.  While yes, we could use pre-made ground cinnamon, it won’t be as coarse or look as nice.  So, go ahead and grind just a small amount of the cinnamon.  To do this, place your cinnamon stick horizontally across your grater and move it across the grater quickly.  Finally, sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top of the candle.  Then, give your wick and little curl and your candle is finished.  Just remember to let the candle cure for a few day before using it or selling it.  This will ensure that your candle’s scent is a strong as possible.

Are you now craving the real thing?  I have tried many eggnog recipes myself.  Personally, my favorite eggnog recipe is this eggnog recipe from Tastes Batter From Scratch.  It is thick, creamy, and delicious.  It is sure to be an instant hit!

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Green Soap 

We will begin by preparing the green soap. A small amount of the green soap will be used for the confetti portion of the soap. The remaining green soap will be used in the loaf portion of the soap.

First, you will need a dish that is safe for the microwave. In this dish, weigh out 415 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Now, melt the clear mp soap base in your microwave. You will want to melt in 30-second bursts, stirring occasionally.  Continue to melt the soap until all the melt and pour soap is in a melted state.  While you are waiting for the soap to melt, lay out a piece of wax paper.

Next, we will be adding our soap colorant.  Now, add the 10 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant and 2 drops Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir well to completely incorporate the green colorant.  Once all of the soap is colored, add the 17 grams Fruitcake fragrance oil and 17 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Mix to blend the fragrance oil and vanilla white.

Finally, pour about 130 grams of the green colored soap onto your sheet of wax paper.  Alternatively, you can use an extra mold to pour your thin layer like I did.  Spray this soap with rubbing alcohol to eliminate any air bubbles.  Allow this to setup.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare your Green Soap

 

 

The remaining green soap will be used for the green portion of your loaf.  So, slowly pour the rest of the green soap into the mold. Then, spray the green soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles you see in your soap loaf. Next, just allow your soap to setup.

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare your Green Soap

 

 

Once the green soap that was poured on the wax paper has setup, we will begin cutting our confetti.  So, place your soap on a cutting board.  Then, begin cutting the soap into small squares.  Put the cut up soap in a small bowl and set it aside for now.  We will come back to it in just a bit.

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare the Red Soap

We will once again use a portion of the soap for the confetti and the rest will be used in the red layer of the soap loaf. So, cut and melt 415 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap in the same manner you prepared the green soap. Once again, while the soap is melting, lay out a piece of wax paper.

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Prepare the Red Soap

 

Now, remove the soap from the microwave and add the 9 drops of tomato red soap colorant, 17 grams Fruitcake fragrance oil, and 17 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Stir your soap to completely incorporate the colorant and Fruitcake fragrance oil completely.  Then, pour about 130 grams of the melted red soap onto the wax paper.  Allow the soap that you poured on the wax paper to setup.  You can set the bowl of remaining red soap base aside, we will come back to it.

Next, once the red confetti soap has setup, use a knife to cut the soap into very small confetti like squares.  Once you have cut them, you can place the red soap in the bowl with the green soap.  Then, go ahead and mix them together.  This will make adding it to your soap easier later.

Now, spray your previous green soap layer with rubbing alcohol.  Next, pour the melted white soap directly on top of the green layer.  Then, while the white soap base is still in its melted state, drop half of the red and green confetti into the white soap layer.  Finally, spray the white layer with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles that have formed in the soap.  Allow the white layer to setup before moving on.

Now we will melt the red soap layer.  Once the white layer has setup, you will need to remelt the red soap base you set aside earlier.  Remember, you want to melt the soap in 30 second bursts only until it is in a liquid state.  Be careful not to overheat the soap.

Next, we will pour the top red layer. So, once again, spray the previous white soap layer with rubbing alcohol.  Then, pour the red soap directly on top of it.  Finally, spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles.  Allow the red soap layer to setup.

Next, simply place the 150 grams of your Natures Garden Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap in a mixing bowl.  Then use your microwave to melt the soap base.  Melt it to a liquid state, use caution not to overheat the soap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the soap is melted, pour it into the mixing bowl with the whipped soap and the vegetable glycerin.  Begin beating the mixture with a hand held mixer.  When the soap looks like whipped frosting, stop beating.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Topping Your SoapChristmas Confetti Soap Recipe: Topping Your Soap

Next, we will begin topping our soap loaf.  So, using your spoon quickly scoop the soap frosting on top of the soap.  You want it to look like whipped cream on top of the soap.

Hair Conditioner for Black HairHair Conditioner for Dark Hair

Today we will talk about conditioner for those with dark hair.  We have talked about a daily conditioner for blonde hair and even a hibiscus conditioner for red heads but for those with black hair or even a very dark brown hair, have you ever added black walnut hulls to your hair care recipes? Black walnut hulls are used in natural dark brown and black hair colorants. This handmade hair conditioner for dark hair is made with black walnut hulls to help enhance your natural black and dark brown hair color. In addition, we added meadowfoam seed oil. Meadowfoam seed oil will help add moisture and shine when added to your hair care recipes.  However, the best thing about making your own products is being able to customize and control the ingredients.  This will allow you to customize your conditioner to both your customer’s needs, as well as your own.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Preparations

First, prepare your area. You will want to clean your work area along. In addition, clean and sanitize the packaging supplies that you will be using. We also suggest wearing gloves, an apron, and a hair net while preparing your hair conditioner.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Achieving the Proper Emulsion

At this time, we should talk about the importance of temperature when preparing this recipe. There are a few reasons why temperature is important.  I would like to point this out to those that have never made this type of recipe. It is important to know this before you begin so that you are properly prepared.  First, your temperature is important in order to create a proper emulsion. You want to make sure the temperature of both your black walnut tea and your oil blend are around 140 degrees Fahrenheit when you blend them. If they are not at the correct temperature, your conditioner can completely separate.

In addition, your temperature is important when adding your preservative. If you add your preservative when your conditioner is too hot, your preservative will burn off.  If your emulsion is too cool the preservative will separate out of conditioner. So, you want to add your preservative at a temperature below 140 degrees Fahrenheit, but you do not want it to get below 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Black Walnut Hulls Information

In this hair conditioner recipe, we used black walnut hulls. Black walnut hulls are often used in both dark brown and black hair dyes.  In addition, they are used in a wide variety of cosmetic recipe.  Next, we will talk a little bit about black walnuts hulls. However, you can learn even more about this wonderful cosmetic powder in our free black walnut hulls class.

When used in soap making, black walnut hulls is used to achieve a dark brown color for soap.  However, it can also be used in bath bombs, lotions, and other cosmetic recipes. It is also often used in natural hair colorants as well.  In fact, with that in mind, we created this hair conditioner for dark hair.

Next, prepare your teabag that you will be using in your herbal infusion.  You will create an herbal tea with the black walnut hulls powder for this recipe.  Black walnut hulls will help intensify your natural black hair or even someone with a very dark brown hair color. So, in your fillable tea bag, add your black walnut hulls powder. You will need to add 27 grams of the black walnut hulls powder.  Then, tie the tea bag closed.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Preparing Your Water

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Preparing Your Water

 

Now, on your stove, heat your distilled water. You want to heat the water to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.  While you will only need 425 grams of water, make sure you add plenty of water. You will need to hold the temperature at this temperature for 20 minutes.  Some of your water will evaporate during this time. However, it is important that you heat for twenty minutes to destroy any bacteria.

 

 

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Adding Your Tea Bag

 

Add your tea bag to your water. Allow the tea bag to steep to create a very dark tea. This black walnut tea will be used in your conditioner.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Preparing Your Oils

Now, we will also be preparing the oils portion of this recipe. The Natures Garden staff used meadowfoam seed oil for our conditioner.  We customized our conditioner specifically for the hair needs of employees here at Natures Garden. Meadowfoam seed oil is wonderful for dry hair.  It also is great for a little extra shine.  While we used meadowfoam seed oil, you can customize this conditioner for your hair needs. Just use a total of 20 grams of oil in any combination you choose. It will require testing of course to perfect the conditioner to your needs. You can read about the oils for various hair types here.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Preparing Your Oils

 

Now, you will need to prepare the oil portion of this recipe. This portion will be melted on your stove using a double boiler. So, first get your large pot and add a few inches of water. Heat the water over medium heat.  You can allow it to heat while you are preparing your oils.

Next, you will need a small pot. In this pot, weigh out and add 25 grams Vegetable Glycerin, 25 grams BTMS 25, and 20 grams Meadowfoam Seed Oil. Then, place the small pot inside the larger pot of water on your stove.  Allow your oils to melt, stirring occasionally.

You want to move quickly through the next couple of steps as this is where the temperatures are very important in order to achieve a proper emulsion. So, get a deep mixing bowl.  Then, weigh out 425 grams of the herbal tea you created.

 

 

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Mixing Your Oils and Herbal Tea Together

In addition, remove your melted oils from the heat.  Then, allow the temperature of both the oils and herbal tea to drop to about 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  At this time go ahead and slowly add your oils to your herbal tea. Finally, use your stick blender to emulsify your ingredients.  You will notice the color of your mixture will begin to change.  Continue to mix, ensuring that your conditioner is fully blended. However, be careful not to allow the temperature to drop below 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Adding the Final Conditioner Ingredients

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Adding the Final Conditioner Ingredients

Finally, we will be adding just a few more ingredients.  As we talked about earlier, all three of these ingredients need to be added at a temperature no cooler than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, add 26 grams of your Black Cherry Fragrance Oil, 5 grams Optiphen Preservative, and 5 grams Vitamin E Oil. Then, once again use your stick blender to incorporate all of the ingredients. Continue to stick blend the ingredients until you are sure everything is mixed.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Cooling the Conditioner

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Cooling the Conditioner

 

Once you have stick blended your conditioner fully and completely, the only thing left to do is wait.  You want your conditioner’s temperature to drop to room temperature.  You will notice that your conditioner is still very thin.  As the conditioner cools, it becomes thicker.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Packaging Your Conditioner

Now, once your conditioner has reached room temperature, you are ready to package your conditioner.  We chose to package our conditioner in the 8 ounce Boston Round Bottles.  If you choose these same bottles, you will need two of them.  However, we have a variety of bottles and lids available to package your conditioner. Get your bottles out at this time and set them in front of you.

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Packaging Your Conditioner

 

First, you will need your gallon sized Ziploc bag.  Next, place your conditioner in the bag.  You will notice that I placed my bag inside a small bowl.  This made it easier to put my conditioner into the bag.  I place the opening of the bag around the bowl.  This kept the bag open as I filled it. Once you have filled your bag, remove as much air as possible and close the bag.

 

 

 

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Packaging Your Conditioner

 

Next, we will cut the corner of the bag.  You just need to cut the corner a bit to create a hole.  All we are doing is basically creating a decorating bag.  We will line the hole in the bag up with the opening of our bottle to fill it.  Go ahead and fill your bottle with the conditioner.

 

 

Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair: Packaging Your Conditioner

Once your bottle is full, place a lid on top.  We used the white pump tops. Once you have placed a lid on top you are finished. Your conditioner for dark hair is now ready to use!  Simply wash your hair then use the conditioner as you would your normal hair conditioner.  We have found that the longer you leave it on before rinsing, the better results you will see.

 

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this hair conditioner for dark hair. Did you know that we have a wide variety of candle making, soap making, and cosmetics making recipes found in our free classes and recipes box? We would love to see all of the wonderful creation you have been working on.  Tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.  You can also post pictures of your finished handcrafted candles, soaps and cosmetics on our Facebook page.  Be sure to follow us as well.
