Keylime Pie Candle Recipe
This keylime pie candle recipe was inspired by my absolute favorite dessert that not only tastes delicious but, with this free candle recipe, it smells delicious too! As a kid, I remember my favorite place to visit was my Aunt. Not only because she is an amazing person, but her keylime pie was out of this world! Luckily for me, she would send me home with the leftovers. She just knew how much I loved it. Since keylime pie isn’t on my diet this candle was just what I needed to get rid of that craving. Natures Garden’s keylime pie fragrance smells just like the dessert that I, and I’m sure many of you love.

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Embeds
First, we will prepare our lime embeds. This will later use a couple of these to top our keylime candle. Before we begin, I want to note just one thing. We chose to prepare 10 of them, however, this recipe will only create one candle. So, the remaining slices can be used in your wax melter or you can prepare less of the lime slices. When melting 50 grams of wax, it will prepare 10 lime slices.
Let’s begin by melting the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Weigh out 50 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax. Then use a double boiler to melt the wax. Once you have melted the wax remove it from the heat. Then, add 5 grams of Keylime Pie Fragrance Oil. Mix well to incorporate the fragrance oil. Next, use a toothpick to add a tiny bit of green liquid candle dye. Then mix the candle colorant into the candle wax. Then, pour the melted candle wax into the mini lemon/lime slices mold. Allow these to setup. Then, remove them from the mold. You can go ahead and move on to the next step while you are waiting.
Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Wax Pie Crust
Now, we will prepare the pie crust layer of the candle. First, prepare your candle jar. Use a hot glue gun to adhere two CD-12 candle wicks to the bottom of a 16 ounce apothecary jar. Make sure the wicks are evenly spaced and centered. Then, weigh out 115 grams of Joy Wax. Again, using a double boiler, melt the Joy Wax. Once melted, you will once again use a toothpick to add the color. Dip your toothpick into the brown liquid candle dye. Then, dip it into your melted wax. Repeat this process with the yellow candle colorant. Then, mix well to incorporate the color. Next, add 10 grams of Keylime Pie Fragrance Oil. Then, mix once again to incorporate the fragrance oil. Pour the candle wax carefully into your jar. Allow this layer to setup before moving to the next step.
Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Lime Colored Wax
First, weigh out and melt 285 grams of Joy Wax using a double boiler. Then, add 28 grams of Natures Garden Keylime Pie Fragrance Oil. Mix the fragrance into the candle wax. Next, you will once again need a toothpick. Use a toothpick to add a tiny bit of green liquid candle colorant. Make sure you mix the green dye into the wax. Finally, pour the lime layer right on top of the pie crust layer. Allow this layer to setup before moving to the next step.
Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Whipped Topping
Now, begin preparing the whipped cream topping of the candle. We will once again be using Joy Wax. Weigh out and melt 228 grams of Joy Wax using your double boiler. Next, remove the wax from the heat and add 22 grams of Keylime Pie Fragrance Oil and stir to incorporate the fragrance oil. We will not be adding color to this portion of the candle. Once you have added the lime scent, allow the wax to setup just a little bit. Then, begin whipping the wax using a mixing spoon. You want to get the wax to a whipped frosting consistency.
Finally, scoop the whipped wax directly on top of your lime layer. As you are adding the wax to the top make sure you are keeping your wicks straight. You want to create a whipped cream appearance. Use your spoon to create peaks in the whipped candle wax
Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Finishing Touches
The last part of this candle will be the finishing touches. First, use your mixing spoon, or a fork to add peaks in the wax. Then, place one or two lime slices you prepared earlier on top of the whipped cream layer. Once you have allowed the candle to cure, trim your wicks to about 1/4 inch. Finally, it is ready to be lit.
