Types of Candle WaxTypes of Candle Wax

Often, here at Natures Garden, we are asked about the different types of candle wax that we carry.  For beginners, it can be difficult to know which wax to use and when to use.  From pillar wax to container wax or granulated waxes or wax in flake form, below, we will talk about all of the waxes that Natures Garden carries, what to use them for, and what for they come in.

Types of Candle Wax: Container Wax vs. Pillar Wax

Before we begin looking closely at the different types of candle waxes, we would like to talk about the difference between a container wax and pillar wax.  You might wonder why you would even need two types of wax.  Well, there are differences in the two types.

Container Wax vs. Pillar Wax: Container Wax

So, first we will talk about a container wax.  Container waxes are created specifically for container candles.  When creating a container candle, it is important that your candle wax adheres to your container.  If the wax doesn’t adhere properly to your jar, your candles will end up looking like they have wet spots.  While, yes, this can still happen with containers, it inevitable when you use pillar wax in a container.  This is why you will find container waxes to be softer.  Container waxes can come in many forms.  It can come in flake form, granulated form, and even slab form.  Natures Garden carries the following container waxes; Joy Wax, WOW Wax, palm wax, several types of soy wax, and gel wax.

Container Wax vs. Pillar Wax: Pillar Wax

Next, let’s take a look at pillar wax.  Pillar waxes are created to be a harder wax. This is important because a harder wax will release more easily from your candle molds.  This makes pillar waxes perfect to use when creating both pillar candles as well as wax melts.

Types of Candle Wax: Soy Waxes

First, we will talk about the three soy waxes that Natures Garden carries.  We carry three types of soy wax.  Soy wax will give you a clean burn.  All three soy waxes are Golden Brand waxes.  They all come in flake form.  They should all be used only for container candles as the setup wax will be too soft for tarts.  However, if you really want to use them for wax melts, you can add stearic acid to help harden the wax a bit.  Below, we will take a closer look at all three of these waxes.

Soy Waxes: NG 100% Soy Wax

We will start by looking at NG 100% Soy Wax.  This wax is a pure soy wax that does not contain any additives and is kosher.  It is also known as Golden Brands 415 Soy Wax.  As I said before, it should be used for container candles.  It will be too soft to use for your pillar candles.  Next, we will talk about a few things you should know about straight soy wax.  Soy wax can have a rougher finish and issues with frosting.  This is just the nature of soy wax.  There can also be more of an issue with glass adhesion.  So, when working with soy wax, it is very important to warm your jars before pouring the candle wax into them.  In addition, it can be harder to get a really strong scent throw with soy wax, when compared with paraffin.  Since there can be some issues with frosting, scent throw, and glass adhesion with a straight soy wax, Golden Brands has created a couple of other natural soy waxes to help with some of these issues.

Soy Waxes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 444

So, the first natural and kosher soy wax is the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444.  This soy candle wax has soy based additives to help with some the issues that you can have with the 415 soy wax.  This particular container candle wax has a higher melt point.  Since it has a higher melt point, the candle wax will retain a higher fragrance load.  The melt point of the 444 soy wax has a melt point of 119-125 degrees Fahrenheit.

Soy Waxes: Golden Brands Soy Wax 464

Now, we will take a closer look at the Golden Brands Soy Wax 464.  So, this soy wax, like the 415 and 444, is still natural and kosher.  However, this wax contains soy based additives that will help with glass adhesion.  The reason this soy wax will adhere better to your jars is because the melt point is lower.  The melt point of the 464 candle wax is 113-119 degrees Fahrenheit.

Types of Candle Wax: WOW Wax

Next, we will talk about Natures Garden’s WOW Wax.  This candle wax comes in a slab form.  However, it is very soft.  In fact, it is so soft that you can cut it with a butter knife.  This candle wax is a single pour wax comprised of mainly paraffin wax.  Paraffin wax will give you the best scent throw compared to other candle waxes along with a nice creamy finish without the frosting that you can get from soy wax.  It is used for container candles.

Types of Candle Wax: Joy Wax

Our next container wax is Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Joy wax is a combination of  soy wax, food grade paraffin, vegetable waxes and other proprietary ingredients.  It, like our WOW Wax, comes in slab form.  It, too, is soft enough to cut with a butter knife.  This is my personal go to wax for container candles.  Since it is made of both paraffin and soy, I think of it as the best of both worlds.  It has soy in the wax, which will give you a cleaner burn compared to a straight paraffin.  In addition, it has paraffin in the wax.  This will give you a nice creamy finish along with a better scent throw when compared to a straight soy wax.

Types of Candle Wax: Gel Wax

Now, we will take a look at our next container wax, gel wax.  Natures Garden carries Penreco’s patented medium density gel wax.  Gel wax sets up to look, well, like gel.  Gel wax is a transparent, rubbery compound composed of mineral oil and polymer resin. So, it really does create a truly unique candle.  You can use embeds and micas with this candle wax.

However, there are a few differences when compared to other container waxes.  First, the flash point of the fragrance oil being used needs to be at least 170 degrees Fahrenheit.  In addition, you need to check for solubility.  Basically, you want to make sure that the oil will mix properly with the gel wax.  You will want to test the fragrance oil in mineral oil.  You can easily do this by mixing the your fragrance oil with mineral oil.  So, first, ensure that the flash point is 170 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.  If it is, it may be able to be used in gel wax.  However, you need to test it in mineral oil.  Simply mix the fragrance oil 50/50 with mineral oil.  Once you mix the fragrance oil, check for any separation, cloudiness, or striations.  If none of these are present, it should do well in gel wax.

Types of Candle Wax: Palm Wax

Next, we will look at palm wax.  Natures Garden’s palm wax come only from sustainable sources. We are pleased to affirm that the palm oil used by our company originates from reputable plantation companies who are members of the Malaysian Palm Oil Association (MPOA). MPOA, together with many other stakeholders, has pioneered the establishment of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).  You can read more about this in the description of the palm waxes on our website.  Palm wax is another unique wax that has a crystal-like finish to it.  It is a beautiful wax.  We carry it in both a pillar wax form and a container wax.  Both types of wax are a granulated wax so, it is very easy to work with.

Palm Wax: Container Wax

First, our palm container wax.  This wax can be used for container candles.  So, if you are using a jar, you want to use this wax.  Once your candle sets up, it will have a crystaline finish.  It truly creates a stunning natural container candle.

 

Palm Wax: Pillar Wax

Finally, we have our palm pillar wax.  You can use palm pillar wax when creating homemade pillar candles.  The pillar wax will easily release from your candle mold.  The palm pillar wax can also be used to create natural wax melts.  They will also have the same crystal effect as the container wax.  This is my go to wax for both pillar candles and wax melts due to the crystals that appear on the finished candles and melts.

Types of Candle Wax: Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

Let’s look at Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss candle wax.  This pillar wax is a blend, containing more than 50% soy wax.  However, it also includes paraffin.  So, this wax, like the Joy Wax, will have a smooth and creamy finish.  You can use Pillar of Bliss candle wax for both your pillars and wax melts.  It has excellent cold and hot throw.  It also comes in a granulated form.  In addition to using it for pillar candles, it can be used to create granulated container candles.  These types of candles are popular for projects with children and adults alike.  You can even create granulated candles without melting your candle wax.

Types of Candle Wax: Beeswax

Now, we will talk about beeswax.  Beeswax comes from the bee hive and is filtered.  In addition, our beeswax is naturally bleached by the sunlight.  It can be used to create homemade candles.  This wax can even be used to make a rolled beeswax candle.  We have even used it in candles like our zebra print candle to create the zebra stripes in a soy wax candle.  It comes in a pellet form.  You can also use white beeswax in cosmetic recipes as well.

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.

Prepare the Banana Embeds: Preparing the Candle Wax

Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe: Prepare the Banana Embeds Melting the Wax

 

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.

Prepare the Banana Embeds: Adding the Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil

Next, you will want to add Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil.  So, to your melted candle wax, add 3 grams of Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  Once again, stir to incorporate the colorant.

 

Prepare the Banana Embeds: Pour the Banana Embeds

Finally, you will need to pour the banana embeds.  Once the wax has completely setup, remove the banana slices from the mold.  For now, you can set them aside, we will come back to them.

Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe: Prepare the Pecan Embeds

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.

Prepare the Pecan Embeds: Preparing the Candle Wax

Once again, using a double boiler melt 60 grams of Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.  As the wax is melting, you will want to stir occasionally.  You do not want to allow the temperature to get above 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare the Pecan Embeds: Add the Liquid Candle Dye

Next, we will begin coloring our candle wax.  You will once again need a toothpick.  First, dip you toothpick in the brown liquid candle dye.  Then, dip the toothpick in the candle wax.  Stir to incorporate the candle dye.

Prepare the Pecan Embeds: Add the Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil

Once you have incorporated your candle colorant, you will need to add the Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil.  Weigh out and add 6 grams of Natures Garden Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil.  Then, stir to incorporate fragrance oil.

Prepare the Pecan Embeds: Pour the Pecan Embeds

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.

Prepare the Banana Chunks: Adding the Yellow Candle Dye

Next, we will be coloring our candle wax.  We will once again, be using a toothpick.  So, dip your toothpick in the yellow candle colorant.  Then, dip it into the candle wax.  Then, using the other side of the toothpick, repeat this process one more time.  Lastly, stir with your mixing spoon to incorporate the colorant.

Prepare the Banana Chunks: Adding the Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil

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: Melt the Candle Wax

Now, we will prepare and melt the candle wax that will be used for the bulk of the candle.  So, weigh out 250 grams of soy wax.  Then, melt your wax using a double boiler.  Use caution not to overheat the wax.

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

Lastly, we will add our Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil.  So, weigh out 25 grams of the Banana Nut Bread Fragrance Oil.  Then, mix to completely incorporate the scent.

Prepare the Tan Colored Candle Wax: Pour the Candle Wax

Finally, pour the candle wax into the jar.  You will notice that your jar is only about 3/4 of the way full.  At this time, you will begin add the yellow colored wax cubes you prepared earlier.  Add the carefully and slowly.  If you are not careful, you could easily splash the candle wax.

Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe: Prepare the Whipped Topping

Finally, you will need to prepare the whipped topping for your Banana Nut Bread Candle Recipe.  You will need to prepare the whipped topping, then place embeds on top.  You will be placing both pecans and bananas on top.

First, weigh out 225 grams of the soy wax.  Then, use a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  Once it is melted, remove it from the heat.

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.

So, let’s talk a little bit about soy wax!  Soy wax is a natural vegetable wax that is created from soybeans. Plus, this wax is environmentally friendly and a renewable resource. So, we can all feel good creating  our scented candle masterpieces. Plus, this wax really isn’t just good for the environment, it can be used to make some great scented candles! They burn slower and cleaner than a candle made from paraffin wax. So, there is less soot left over as the candle burns and you even get a longer lasting candle! Plus, the wax is one of the most enjoyable waxes to work with! It comes in an easy to use form that makes weighing out and clean up super easy! It comes in flakes form instead of a slab.

Soy Candle Recipes Different Types of Soy Waxes

We at Natures Garden have three types of soy wax available, which are Golden Foods 444, Golden Foods 464, and NG 100% Soy Wax (Golden Foods 415).While all of these candle making options are made up of natural soy wax, there are a few slight differences between the types of soy wax that we carry. Some have varying melting points or have a different allowance for scent load, but each has a different set of characteristics that make it unique. A wax may have better qualities in one area, while another type has better qualities in a different area. So, choosing the right wax for you is all about figuring out what you value in a soy candle and which wax suits your needs best. So, let’s discover your favorite type of soy candle wax!

Soy Candle Recipes Terms for Soy Wax

As we discuss the benefits and drawbacks to our different types of soy waxes you can choose from, there may be some specific terms that you will want to know. It is important to know what we mean when we refer to these things to get a better idea of what you will be getting into.

First, we have the possibility of candle frost. This occurs in soy wax where the appearance on parts of the jar look lighter or even white. While this doesn’t impact the quality of the burn or scent, it may impact the appearance. Additionally, there is the possibility for wet spots to occur in your candles. This is when the wax cools too quickly in the jar and the wax doesn’t adhere to the jar in some places. This will look like some air or water became trapped between the wax and the container. Further, tunneling could be a problem where the wick is too small for the jar and isn’t able to heat the wax at edges of the jar.

Soy Candle Recipes NG 100% Soy WaxSoy Candle Recipes NG 100% Soy Wax

First of all, we have the NG 100% Soy Wax, which is known as Golden Foods 415 Soy Wax. This original soy wax is 100% pure soy without a single additive. This 100% soy wax is all natural and all regular soy. While this wax is just plain soy, it has a few interesting qualities.

Firstly, the melting point of this type of soy wax is 120-125 degrees Fahrenheit. This fairly high melt point provides some beneficial properties for your homemade candles. This higher melt point allows the wax to carry a higher fragrance load of up to 12% of fragrance oil per pound of wax.Thus, you can make a stronger scented candle than the typical 10% allowance for candles. Further, the higher melt point of this wax will help those that may be shipping candles in hotter temperatures. Also, this pure soy wax can be blended with other waxes, such as paraffin, beeswax, or any microcrystalline waxes.

Soy Candle Recipes Leopard Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Leopard Candle Recipe

This candle making idea takes advantage of the agreeability of soy wax with waxes like beeswax. Since beeswax is a harder wax that has a higher melt point than this pure soy wax, it was perfect for creating designs. These embedded candles use the beeswax to create the leopard print pattern. After, the regular soy wax was added to the jar to fill up the candle and hold all of the leopard print spots in place.

Next, we have a candle recipe that uses soy wax to create the grass effect on top. You simply beat the candle batter until you achieve a thicker consistency. Then, you can add it to your homemade candle. This will create the effect of more realistic grass with dirt underneath. Perfect for the football field inspired candle!

Soy Candle Recipes Citronella Soy Wax Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Citronella Soy Wax Candle Recipe

Another great way to use this type of soy wax is a regular type of candle. Our Citronella Soy Wax Candle Recipe has a typical candle appearance with an unforgettably strong scent. This fragrance oil has a crazy strong aroma that creates a perfect citronella candle for the outdoors. Say goodbye to bugs and hello to your perfect soy wax scented candle!

Soy Candle Recipes Massage Candle Recipe Soy Candle Recipes Massage Candle Recipe

One great thing about using pure soy wax is that it is considered a natural moisturizing agent! So, adding this wax to a massage candle is perfect! The natural soy wax works together with the butters and oils to soften your skin during a relaxing massage. It is a perfect recipe for candles for massage therapy.

Soy Candle Recipes Green Beer Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Green Beer Candle Recipe

Also, you can use the 415 soy wax in this fun beer themed candle! This recipe utilizes the lower pouring temperature of the wax, which creates a thicker pour. This is helpful for making some kinds of toppings, like the foam on our beer candle! We can mix the wax as it cools to create a fluffy consistency that looks just like the foam on top of a pint of beer.

 

Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 444Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 444

Also, we have a second soy wax alternative that is available for use in candle making. This next wax is Golden Foods Soy Wax 444, which is regular, natural soy wax with an additive. This additional ingredient is a soy based additive that is mixed to the soy wax. While this wax has the same type of wax, this additive helps to solve some of the issue you may come across when using the the 415 soy wax. So, we will go over some of the benefits to using this alternative type of soy wax.

First, this wax will increase your pour temperature during candle making. An issue that comes up with the pure soy wax is pouring too hot can cause issues with appearance. Meaning that the problem of the getting the slushy state pouring with the natural soy wax at the suggested 110 degrees Fahrenheit, can be solved with this wax. Thanks to this additive, you are able to pour this 444 soy wax at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that your wax will still be in a fluid form when you pour and the candle will have a smoother appearance. This difference is partially due to the fact that this type of soy wax will reduce frosting, so you don’t have to worry about cooling the wax to a slushie state to reduce this effect.

Also, the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 provides you with a higher melt point than the other alternative soy wax. This wax has a melt point between 120- 125 degrees Fahrenheit, which will provide you with a few benefits. First, you will be able to raise the fragrance oil allowance in your candle to up to 12% of your scent per pound. So, you will be able to create a stronger scented candle. Second, your candles will be less likely to melt when the weather gets hotter. So, it will be safer to ship candles as they will be less likely to melt in hot temperatures.

Soy Candle Recipes Zebra Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Zebra Candle Recipe

Again, we are using the higher melting point of beeswax to help create a cute candle design! We only use the beeswax for the red portion, which will be used for the zebra stripes. This will help prevent the wax from melting after the rest of the candle is added to the jar. Meaning, you shouldn’t have smears or running colors that could have been caused by the, melting of the red wax.

Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 464Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 464

Another natural wax that you can use instead of the pure soy option is the Golden Brands Soy Wax 464. This wax is one of the two alternatives that we carry for candle makers. While this wax is similar to the other alternative wax as they both contain a soy based additive. This wax has some similarities and differences with these other waxes.

Just like with the 444 soy wax, this type of soy wax will have an increased pour temperature, which is at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the original soy wax has to be poured at a lower temperature, this wax will become a slushy consistency by the time you can pour. However, this wax alternative will pour at a temperature where the wax remains liquid. So, the candle will be smooth, like the 444 soy wax candles.

Additionally, this type of wax has been made to reduce the frosting that comes with soy wax. While this frosting isn’t harmful, it does impact the appearance of your candle.

The main difference between the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 and the Golden Foods Soy Wax 464 is the melting point. While the 444 soy wax has a higher melting point, like the original soy wax, the 464 soy wax is not the same. Instead, the 464 soy wax has a melt point of 115-120 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a few degrees lower than the other waxes. This means that you should be monitor the weather more careful to prevent the candles from getting too hot and melting. However, this lower melt point allows for a better glass adhesion in the finished candle!

While the maximum scent load for this wax is about 10-12%. We suggest that you have the fragrance oil at 10% of the wax to reduce the possibility of fragrance oil seepage.

Soy Candle Recipes Shimmer Gel Potpourri RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Shimmer Gel Potpourri Recipe

While candles are fun to create, it is always nice to try something new. Our sparkling potpourri gel uses this type of soy wax and rice bran oil to create a gel-like product that is perfect for a wax melt warmer.SImply squeeze some into the dish of a warmer and let the product do what it does best scent your home!

Soy Candle Recipes Advice for Making Soy Candles

There are some possible issues that apply to all soy wax candles, so some advice may be helpful. First, you may have issues with the scent throw of soy wax candles. While this is the nature of soy wax, there are a few things you can do to maximize your scent throw. You can try increasing your wick size, however be careful not to go too large or you can burn the fragrance oil off before it hits the air.  Also, make sure that you have added the maximum amount of fragrance. While each fragrance will be different, most will use 1.5 ounces of fragrance oil per pound. Second, you can reduce wet spots by heating the jar before pouring your wax. This will allow the wax to have time to better adhere. Finally, you can reduce frosting by heating the jar as it allows your wax to cool slower.

Scale
A Pot (for double boiler)
Apothecary Jars

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing Your Soy Wax

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing Your Soy WaxFirst, you will want to melt your soy candle wax.  You will want to melt your wax using a double boiler.  You can create a double by adding a few inches of water to a medium sized pot. Then, place your pouring pot in the water.

So, using your scale, weigh out 510 grams of your soy wax in your double boiler.  Then, melt the wax using the double boiler you created.  Once the wax has melted, remove it from the double boiler.  Finally, add 50 grams of NG Aloe and White Lilac Fragrance Oil.  Next, stir to mix the fragrance into the wax.  This portion of your candle will be left uncolored.  For now, let it cool.  We will come back to it.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Creating You Beeswax Embeds

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Creating You Beeswax EmbedsThis step can be done while you are waiting for your soy wax to melt.  Before beginning warm your shamrock mold in your oven.  Place your oven on the lowest setting possible.  Place the mold in your over and allow it to warm up.  It does not need to be hot, just warm.  Once it is warmed, remove it from the oven.  We warmed the mold so that the beeswax would cool slower.  By letting our beeswax cool as slowly as possible it made it more flexible when we adhered it to the jar.  If they cool too quickly they will not have as much flexibility and are likely to crack.  They also will not adhere to the jar as well.

Again, you will want to use a double boiler to melt your wax.  So, to your pouring, add 20 grams of beeswax.  Melt the wax.  Then, add 2 grams of NG Aloe and White Lilac Fragrance Oil.  Also, add one drop of green Spectrum liquid candle dye.  Then, use a mixing spoon to stir the ingredients together.  Finally, pour a very thin layer of the wax into two cavities of the Shamrock silicone mold.  Your shamrocks will not fill the cavities of the mold, the will be very thin.  Alternatively, you can pour the beeswax onto wax paper.  Then, use a sharp pencil to draw the shape onto the beeswax before cutting it out.  We used a similar technique in our Leopard Candle Recipe.  This leopard print soy and beeswax candle recipe will show you how that is done.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing You Jars

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing You Jars

 

There are a few things you will need to do before pouring your soy wax.  First, you want to warm your jar.  Again, with your oven on a low temperature, place your jar in the oven to warm it.  Remember, this will only take a few minutes.  You want it to be warm, not hot.  Once it is warm, remove it from the oven.

Next, remove your beeswax shamrocks from the molds.  Then, we will place the shamrocks in the jars.  Your shamrocks will be fairly flexible but it is still possible to crack them if you apply too much pressure.  So, make sure you do not try to rush this step.  Place your first shamrock in the jar.  Apply gentle pressure to the embed to bend it to the shape of the jar.  Then, press gently to adhere the embed to the jar.  Remember to make sure the embed adheres to the jar completely.  If it is not completely adhered the soy wax will get in between the glass and the beeswax.  Then, you will not be able to see the clover.  Repeat this process with the next shamrock.  You want to place the second shamrock on the opposite side of the jar.  Then adhere two of your CD 10 wicks to the bottom of the jar.  Make sure they are evenly spaced and centered.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Pouring Your Soy Wax

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Pouring Your Soy WaxNow, back to your cooling soy wax.  We will want to pour our soy wax at a very low temperature.  The temperature of the wax is very important for this step.  We pour at a low temperature because we do not want to risk melting the beeswax embeds.  So, once your soy wax 464 has come to about 110 degrees Fahrenheit, you are ready to pour.  Pour the soy wax into you apothecary jar.  Allow the soy wax candles to setup.  Then, leave it undisturbed while it sets up.  Finally, trim your wicks, place your lid on your jar, and allow your candle to cure before burning your candle.

We hope that you have had as much fun creating the Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe as we had.  For even more fragrance fun recipes check out all of our other candle, soap, and cosmetic recipes in our recipe box.  Our recipe box also offers numerous free downloadable classes to help you learn these wonderful crafts.  In addition, we love to see what you have been up to.  Post pictures of your latest projects on our Facebook page.  You can also tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.

Also, WOW Wax will retain a nice, strong aroma. When coloring your Sheer Seduction scented candles, we suggest using four drops of purple liquid candle dye with a tiny bit of red liquid candle dye. This is per four pounds of wax. Another option, a small amount of a shredded purple and red color blocks into the melted wax. However, it should be noted, do not use crayons when coloring candles. They can clog the wick, inhibiting the candle’s burn.

Bath oils, bath gels, lotions, scrubs, soaps, perfumes, bath bombs, and other related creations can include up to 5% of this fragrance oil. If you wish to color any of your bath and body products that use this fragrance, then we suggest using purple liquid soap dye in the amount that you enjoy. Just remember that you shouldn’t use any candle dyes in any of your body products.

While cold process soaps can be created with this fragrance oil, it may have a few kinks along the way. Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this kind of scented soap can be created with a bit of effort. A batch that contains this scent will have no separation, but will accelerate and have some slight ricing. To combat both of these issues you should soap when your components are at room temperatures and stick blend as long as possible to reduce the ricing. The final products will have a tan discoloration and will retain a strong scent.
