Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe: Prepare the Banana Embeds

For our banana nut bread candle recipe, we need to prepare the four banana slices that you see pictured to the left.  These banana slice embeds will be placed right the top of the candle once it is finished.  We are preparing them ahead of time so that they can be setup and ready to go when we need them.

We will first begin preparing our banana embed’s wax. So, weigh out 35 grams of Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.  Then, melt the pillar candle wax using a double boiler.  As it is melting, you will want to stir occasionally.

 

Prepare the Banana Embeds: Adding the Candle Dye


Now, you need to add your colorant.  Since we will only be adding a very small amount, we will need a toothpick.  Dip your toothpick into the yellow liquid candle dye.  Then, dip the toothpick into the melted candle wax.  Finally, stir to mix the colorant into the candle wax.

Now, we will prepare the pecan embeds,  The pecan embeds will also go on top of your candle.  We will be preparing a total of twelve of the pecan embeds that you see pictured.  However, since there are only 6 cavities in the mold, you will need to fill the mold twice.

Finally, you will need to pour the pecan embeds.  Carefully, pour the candle wax into the six cavities of the pecans mold.  Then, allow them to setup.  Once they have setup, remove them from the mold.  Now, once your embeds have been removed from the mold, you will need to remelt the candle wax that is left in the pouring pot and pour one more round of pecans.

Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe: Prepare the Banana Chunks

In this candle recipe, we used a very light yellow color for our chunks.  The chucks will be placed into the candle before it fully sets up.  Little portions of these chunks can be seen from the outside of the jar.

Prepare the Banana Chunks: Melting the Candle Wax

Now, we will need to melt about 150 grams of soy wax.  Once again, you will want to melt the wax using a double boiler.  As your wax is melting, stir occasionally.  Be careful that you do not allow the wax to get too hot.

The last thing you will do before pouring your wax into the mold is add fragrance oil.  So, to the melted candle wax, add 15 grams of Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil.  Then, mix to incorporate the scent into the wax.

Prepare the Banana Chunks: Pouring the Candle Wax

Finally, it is time to pour your candle wax.  You will pour the candle wax into on cavity of the four loaf silicone mold.  Then, you will let the wax setup.  However, while the wax is still soft, slice it like you would a cake.  You want to cut it into small cubes.  Once the wax has completely cooled, remove it form the mold.

Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe: Prepare the Tan Colored Candle Wax

Next,we will prepare candle wax in a sort of tan color.  The tan colored candle wax is used for the majority of the candle.  It will be colored with brown candle dye along with a little bit of yellow.

Prepare the Tan Colored Candle Wax: Color the Candle Wax

In order to color the candle wax, you will need two of Natures Garden’s liquid candle dyes.  First, add one drop of the Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye in brown.  Then, use a tooth pick, as you have in previous steps, to add just a tiny bit of yellow candle colorant.  Mix to incorporate the candle dyes.

Prepare the Tan Colored Candle Wax: Add the Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil

Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe: Prepare the Whipped Topping

Next, add 22 grams of the Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil.  Then, use a spoon to incorporate the fragrance oil into the wax.  Then, pour the candle wax into a bowl.  As it begins to thicken, you will need to use a spoon to mix and whip it.  When it is at whipped cream consistency, top the candle with the wax.

 

Finally, place the pecan embeds and banana slices on top.  Once you have placed the embed on top, curl you wicks, and you are all done!  Simply allow your candle to cure for a few days.  Then, trim your wicks and burn your candle.
