Valentines Day Cupcake Candle

This entry was posted in candle making, candle making supplies, Cinnamon Fragrances, Free Candle Recipe, Natures Garden, Pillar Candles, Valentines Day Recipe and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Valentines-Day-Cupcake-CandleWith Valentine’s Day right around the corner, what could possibly be better than a Valentines Day Cupcake Candle?!?!  We had a blast creating this cinnamon scented candle…complete with SPRINKLES!!!  It is both adorable and smells amazing!  So if you are looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day project, you may have just found it!  So go ahead and get the below ingredients ready.  Once you’re ready, let’s get started on this simple and fantastic candle recipe!

 

 

INGREDIENTS

230 grams Pillar of Bliss

140 grams Joy Wax

37 grams Cinnamon Yum Yums Fragrance Oil

1 Red Color Block

3 Votive Wick Pins

3 CD 10 Wicks

Silicone Heart Cupcake Molds

Embed Mold- Love Hearts

Pouring Pot

Thermometer

valentine-candle

To start, weigh and melt 230 grams of our Pillar of Bliss Wax, using the double boiler method.  You will want to melt the wax to 195 degrees.  The wax will take a bit to melt.  While it melts, let’s go ahead and prepare our molds.  You are going to need 3 of the Silicone Heart Cupcake Molds and 3 of our votive wick pins.  Place one wick pin in the center of each silicone mold.

Add a bit of your red color block to the wax.  We found that we only needed a couple shavings to get a light pink for our cupcake candle base.

add-fragrance

 

Now, let’s add our fragrance.  You will need to stir into your wax 23 grams of Cinnamon Yum Yums scent.  Make sure you stir it very well so the fragrance mixes thoroughly with the wax.

 

 

Fill-the-Mold

 

Next we can go ahead and start filling the molds with the melted wax.  Be sure to fill each mold to the top.

 

 

making-embedsAs you can now see, you will have a little bit of the Pillar of Bliss Wax left over.  We will need this wax for our embeds.  Before pouring the embeds, add a little bit more of the red color block.  We simply added a couple more shavings. You will only need to fill three of the cavities of the Love Hearts embed mold.  Make sure you pour at a low temperature since this is a plastic mold.  For now you can set these aside and allow them to setup.  We will use them in a bit.

 

Let’s go ahead and start preparing our frosting.  Use a double boiler to melt 140 grams of our wonderful Joy Wax.  Allow it to melt to 200 degrees, then allow the temperature to drop to 175 degrees, and add 14 grams of our Cinnamon Yums Yums Fragrance Oil.  Be sure to stir that fragrance oil in very well.

Add-Frosting

Now comes the fun part!  Remove the silcone heart cupcake mold and…LETS DECORATE!!!!  Add sprinkles to the top of each heart candle and one heart embed to each Valentines Day Cupcake Candle.  We will need to continuously stir, stir, stir that wax until it cools and looks like frosting. Once you have a nice and thick frosting, start placing it on top of your heart cupcake base.  You want you frosting go up to the height of the wick pin.  Just be careful not to cover the wick pin completely.

Finally, just let them setup.  Then, remove the wick pins and thread one CD 10 to each candle.  Trim the wicks back before you burn them.  You need them to be about ¼ inch.

We hope you loved making the Valentines Day Cupcake Candle as much as we did!  Enjoy your Valentine’s Day and your fabulously scented cinnamon candle!  Make sure you check back for more fragrance fun!  Also, check our recipe box that is packed full of recipes and classes!

Types of Soy Wax

This entry was posted in candle making, candle making questions, candle making supplies, candle wax, Natures Garden, soy wax and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

464 soy wax444 soy wax415 soy wax                                                                                                                                      Types of Soy Wax

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day! For all you crafty people out there, have you ever used soy wax when making your candles before? Or maybe you prefer wow wax or joy wax? For the soy wax lovers, do you have a certain type of soy wax you prefer to use? Here at Nature’s Garden, we actually offer three different types of soy wax:  415, 444, and 464. Soy wax is awesome to use for your candles, this is for sure a product you should use as soon as possible!

Did you know that soy wax is actually produced from soybeans? Soy wax is non-toxic, biodegradable, and it s kosher! We are proud to say that all three of our soy waxes are Golden Foods Brand Waxes. Our 415 soy wax is a 100% pure natural soy wax. What sets it aside from our other waxes is that it has absolutely no additives added to it. Our 415 pure soy wax can be blended with many other waxes as well: beeswax, paraffin, and even microcrystalline wax. It has a pour temperature of 110 degrees and at its melting point, this wax will be around 120-125 degrees Fahrenheit. This wax can actually carry up to about a 12% fragrance load per pound because of its high melting point, which will make the candle’s scent stronger.  This 100% pure soy wax can also be used to make natural cosmetics.

Our 444 soy wax is different from the 415 soy wax because it does have a soy based additive added to it, but yet it is still a natural wax. The additive in this wax actually helps to combat many flaws that are also contained in the 415 wax. When this 444 wax is ready for pouring, the additive in it actually helps to keep it in a fluid form for pouring instead of the slush that occurs when the 415 is ready for pouring. This additive also increases the pour temperature, helps to achieve a smoother finished candle, and also helps to reduce frosting issues. Our 444 wax can be blended with microcrystalline, beeswax, and paraffin waxes, has the same melting point as the 415, and a pour temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has a 12% fragrance load per pound, making these strongly scented candles as well.

Our third and final soy wax is our 464 Golden Foods soy wax. This wax is extremely similar to our 444 soy wax and also contains the same soy based additive. What makes this wax unique from the other two is that it reduces frosting, has a smoother wax finish in finished candles, and also has an increased pour temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit. The 464 soy wax can be blended with beeswax,  paraffin wax,  as well as microcrystalline and has a melting point of 115-120 degrees. The fact that this is a lower melting point actually helps to achieve better glass adhesion for finished candles.  This wax has a maximum scent load of around 10-12%, but it is suggested to keep it closer to 10% so that you do not have any fragrance seeping problems.

It is important to note that all soy wax can produce a frosting appearance due to its natural chemical makeup.  The natural soy additives in 444 soy wax and 464 wax will help to reduce this frosting, but may not completely prevent frosting from occurring.  This frost look does not affect the quality of your candles, but some of our customers do not like this frosting look.  Most people who are familiar with soy wax candles realize that soy wax candles have this natural frosting appearance to some extent.   The only way we have found to completely prevent frosting in candle making is to use a paraffin wax, or beeswax instead.
