Keylime Pie Candle Recipe

Keylime Pie Candle RecipeThis 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.

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your EmbedsLet’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

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Wax Pie CrustNow, 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.

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

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Whipped ToppingNow, 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

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.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Additional Supplies Needed

A Pouring Pot

Cake Pan 13×9 or Large Pot (Used to Create the Double Boiler)

Stainless or Wooden Spoon

Stainless or Glass Measuring Cup

Stove Top or Hot Plate

Thermometer

Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue Sticks

Scale

Pencil or Fine Tooth Comb – Used to hold your candle wicks in place

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Sanitize and Clean

Before starting any project, you should make sure that everything is tidy and ready to use. First, gather all the equipment you will need to complete the candles. Not only do you want them readily available, but these supplies should be sanitized as well. Also, you will want to tidy and sanitize your work area and stove top. This preparation will allow you to be sure that this process goes quickly and without error.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Prepare the Containers

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Prepare the ContainersBefore you begin melting your wax you will want to prepare the containers for pouring. The wicks need to be put into the containers before you pour the wax. You will need a hot glue gun and hot glue to secure the wicks in the containers. So, add a bit of hot glue to the bottom of the wick and use your fingers to quickly secure the wick to the bottom of the container. Make sure that you place the metal bottom of the wick as close to the center as possible.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Creating the Double Boiler

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Creating the Double BoilerAlso, you will want to create a double boiler for this project. This will help to prevent the wax from overheating when you melt your provided Joy Wax. You will need the pouring pot to hold your melting wax and a larger pot that the pouring pot fits in. We recommend using a cake pan, but you can improvise with an appropriately sized pot or pan. You will add some water to the cake pan, place the pouring pot inside, and heat the water to boiling.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Melt and Color the Wax

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Melt and Color the WaxFirst, you are going to want to melt and add color to your first batch of candles. So, retrieve your scale and weigh a pound of your joy wax. Place this into pouring pot and begin to melt this wax. Also, you are going to want to add your colorant. Choose either the red or blue color block. We chose to use the blue color block for our first batch. You will want to add no more than one eighth of the block, but you can add less to achieve a lighter shade for your candle. We created dark blue candles for our first batch. Then, light red for our second and mixed a small amount of each for our final batch. After you add your colorant, mix thoroughly and place your thermometer into the wax to check the temperature. Once the thermometer reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit you are ready for the next step.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Cooling the Wax

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Cooling the WaxNext, you are going to add the fragrance oil and pour the wax as the melted wax cools. First, wait for the wax to cool to about 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the wax reaches this temperature you will add one of your three chosen fragrance oils. Add one ounce of fragrance oil and mix thoroughly. Then, wait for the scented wax to cool to about 160-165 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the wax reaches this temperature it is safe to pour the wax into your prepared containers, this batch should fill about four candle containers. It is important to pay attention to how full you fill your jars.  You want to stop pouring just before the jars begin changing shape.  If you fill your jars to full they will not burn all the way across and you will also run out of wax for the remaining jars.  Finally, be sure to straighten the wicks before the candles cool. You can set an object, like a pencil or a fine tooth comb, across the tops to help keep the wicks in place.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Cleaning Your Pouring Pot

Often times beginner candle makers ask us how to clean their pouring pots. Cleaning them out with soap and water isn’t going to get your wax out. In addition, you don’t want candle wax clogging your sink drain. The key is to clean the pouring pot while it is still warm. Your wax will remaining fluid for a short time after you have poured your candles. While your pouring pot is still warm, wipe it out with a paper towel. Once you are sure you have all of the wax out of the pouring pot, you can then wash the pouring pot with dish soap and warm water. By washing the pouring pot you will remove and lingering fragrance and ensure your pouring pot is ready for your next batch.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Repeat These Steps

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Repeat These StepsNow, you are going to repeat these steps two more times. Since you will have eight more jars and two more pounds of wax left, you will be able to create two more batches of candles. Of course, you will need to choose a different fragrance oil and need to decide on the next color. However, all the other steps should be done the exact same way to prevent issues.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Setting Up and Usage of Your Candles

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Setting Up and Usage of Your CandlesFinally, you have finished creating all twelve of your homemade candles! Now, there are just a few things to be aware of before you are ready to start burning them. First, absolutely do not attempt to cool your candles faster by placing them in the refrigerator. If a candle cools too quickly, then it is likely to pull away from the jar. If the candle does not completely adhere to the jar your candle will look like it has wet spots. Second, you may get better results if you want at least three days to let your candles rest before burning. During this time keep the candles covered. Once the candles have cured, trim the wicks to about 1/4 inch before burning them. Finally, make sure you use the warning labels if you are going to share or sell these candles. We hope that you had fun creating this project and that you enjoy your new scented candles.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe EggsEaster Basket Candles Recipe Preparing the Easter Egg Embeds

First, we are going to get the egg embeds ready. You will end up making twenty little Easter Eggs in each color, which may be too many. So, you can use any possible extras as wax tart melts to avoid waste. Once these are done you can set them aside to use in a later step.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Yellow Easter Egg Embeds

Now, you are going to create your first batch of Egg Embeds. Use a double boiler to melt 30 grams of your Pillar of Bliss Wax. Afterwards, use a toothpick to add in a tiny bit of Yellow Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and mix in the color. To add the yellow dye, dip the toothpick in the candle colorant then dip it in the melted candle wax.  Next, add and incorporate 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Finally, pour the wax into your  Easter egg embed mold. Once they set up, remove them and set them aside for later use.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Pink Easter Egg Embeds

Now, melt more wax to create the second batch of eggs. Put 30 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Wax into the double boiler. Then, once again, use a toothpick to add in a tiny bit of the Red Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance. Mix these ingredients into the batch and pour into the embed mold. Later, pop out your eggs and put them with your yellow Easter eggs.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Finished EggsEaster Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Blue Easter Egg Embeds

Next, create the blue egg embeds for the top your candle. Use the double boiler to melt 30 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Wax. Add color to the wax with Blue Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and a toothpick. Scent your wax with 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Mix well and pour into the Easter Egg Embed Mold. Then, remove your eggs and place them with the others.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Purple Easter Egg Embeds

Finally, make the purple eggs to decorate the candle near the end of this process. Melt 30 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Wax in the double boiler. Scent the wax with 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil and color the wax with Purple Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye using a toothpick. Now, wait for the eggs to set up, remove them, and place them with all the other finished eggs.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Preparing the Easter Basket Grass

Second, we are going to create the green grass on top of the candle. We will create a solid chunk of green wax. Then, we will grate the wax into small pieces. These pieces will be sprinkled on top of your candles after all the layers are created. Thus, it will appear as though your candle has little Easter Eggs hidden in the green grass.

EEaster Basket Candles Recipe Green Waxaster Basket Candles Recipe Preparing the Green Wax

Now, we are going to prepare the wax that will be used as green grass. So, weigh and melt 200 grams of the Joy Wax. Then, add five drops of Green Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. Also, add 20 grams of Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Mix this mixture well to evenly disperse the color and scent. Next, pour your wax from before into a paper bowl.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Shred Easter Basket Candles Recipe Shredding the Green Wax

Next, we will shred the wax to make it possible to sprinkle on the candles. Once it sets up, remove the solid chunk of green wax for your paper bowl. Then, use a cheese grater to shred the wax into a medium sized bowl. Set the finished grass aside for later use. You will have enough grass to top both of the candles we are making today.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Candle Layers

Thirdly, you are going to create the actual candle part of this recipe. We will use four colored layers and three white layers to entirely fill the jar. When adding colorant, we use a dip a toothpick in the candle dye then into the melted wax.  We did this for each colored layer.  This prevented too much dye from being added.  It ensures a nice pastel candle color.  Also,make sure that each layer is fully set up before you proceed to the next layer. Further, we suggest that you work slowly and pour the wax into the center of the jar when you add a new layer.  Pouring in this manner will help you keep the layers level and even.  Also, make sure your jar will not be disturbed as each layer sets up.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Adhering the Wicks

First, you will need to adhere two wicks to the bottom of each of your jars. You can use hot glue to make sure that they each stay in place as you pour your layers. Otherwise, they may move during the process. This movement could result in the candle not being able to burn properly or the wicks being off center. Either way, you’ll want to prevent this.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Blue and WhiteEaster Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Blue and White Layers

Next, you will be creating the first two layers for this candle. Take 200 grams of Joy Wax and melt it in the double boiler. Then, use a toothpick to add in a tiny bit of the Blue Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and 20 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Now, add 100 grams of the blue wax to each of the candle jars. It may help to weigh this into another bowl before pouring.

After, make sure that this layer is completely set up. Then, your can begin the white layer. Weigh and melt 50 grams of the Joy Wax. Add 5 grams of the fragrance oil and mix well. Now, pour 25 grams of the wax into each of the candles.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Purple and WhiteEaster Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Purple and White Layers

Now, you will be creating the next two candle layers. Weigh and melt 200 grams of the Joy Wax in a double boiler. Then, add a tiny bit of the Purple Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and 20 grams of the fragrance oil. After the white layer is entirely set up, pour 100 grams of the purple wax to each jar to create the next layer.

Later, you will be adding the second white layer. After the purple layer is completely set up, begin by melting 50 grams of the Joy Wax in the double boiler. Then, add 5 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Finally, pour 25 grams of the wax into each of the candles.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Yellow and White LayersEaster Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Yellow and White Layers

Next, create the yellow and another white layer for the candle. So, weigh and melt 200 grams of Joy Wax in a the double boiler. Later, add a tiny bit of the Yellow Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye along with 20 grams of the fragrance oil. Mix well and wait for the previous layer to fully set up. Then, add 100 grams of the yellow wax to each of the candles.

Then, you are going to make the final white layer. After the yellow layer is entirely set up, get 50 grams of Joy Candle Wax melting in the double boiler. Next, add 5 grams of Carrot Cake Fragrance and mix well. Pour 25 grams of the wax into each of the candles.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Pink LayerEaster Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Pink Layer

Finally, you are going to create the final layer for this candle. Take 200 grams of the Joy Wax and melt it in the double boiler.

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.

Before beginning this recipe you should be sure that all of your equipment and your work space has been cleaned and is ready to work. If you need to you can use two or three bowls and the same number of molds, but you will have to continuously wash as the recipe proceeds.

Valentines Day Kisses Melt And Pour Recipe Final Product

Three kissing lips soaps will be produced for each color that is created. These steps will walk you through the hues that we chose to create. If you wish to get creative, then feel free to mix and match your lip colors to customize your own set of kisses!

Valentines Day Kisses Melt And Pour Recipe Creating Mica Pigments 

Initially, we are going to prepare the soap pigments that we will need later on. Rather than using any of our soap dyes, we are going to use mica to color our melt and pour soap. Not only will this allow us to achieve gold and silver pigments, but the soap will sparkle as well! So, let’s prepare our diamond dust and 24K gold mica pigments and then get to soaping.

Next, we are going to use the 24K gold mica to create a color for our melt and pour soap. So, weigh out approximately 4 grams of vegetable glycerin and 2 grams of 24K gold mica into one of the smaller bowls. Now, mix these ingredients thoroughly to integrate all of the mica powder and spread out any clumped mica. Once you have a nice liquid gold paste prepared, set the bowl aside.

Now, we are going to use the diamond dust mica to create a different pigment for our melt and pour soap. First, weigh 5 grams of vegetable glycerin into another small bowl. Also, include 2 grams of the diamond dust mica. Integrate all of the mica powder and break up any clumps. Once you have a liquid paste you can set aside the bowl.

First, you will need the cupcake mold.  In addition, will need two votive wick pins.  Place one wick pin in the center of each cavity of the cupcake mold. Use a scale to weigh out 7 ounces of Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.   Next, melt the wax using a double boiler method to 195 degrees as we described in one of our candle classes.

For the cupcake base you will need to include 2 drops of brown liquid candle dye.  In addition, add 1 drop of our spectrum black liquid candle dye.  Stir to fully incorporate the color.  When the Pillar of Bliss wax has cooled to about 180 degrees you can go ahead and add your fragrance oil.  Use your scale to weigh out and add 0.7 ounces of Santa Snacks Fragrance Oil.  Stir thoroughly to  blend the fragrance oil with the wax.  When the temperature reaches 140 degrees, pour the wax into the cupcake Mold Market mold.  The temperature is very important because you do not want to melt the mold.  Let the cupcake bases to set up. Then, remove them from the molds once they harden.

Santa Hat Candle RecipeSanta Hat Candle Recipe Separating and Whipping the Wax: 

Next we will be created the part of the candle that looks like Santa’s Hat.  We will be using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Since this is a container wax, it is softer and also easy to whip and pipe.  Using a double boiler, weigh our and melt 10 ounces of Joy Wax. When your wax reaches 200 degrees, remove 3 ounces of wax.  Put this wax in a separate, small mixing bowl.  We will be using this white portion of wax for the white parts of the Santa hat. Let the temperature drop to about 175 degrees, before adding 0.3 ounces of Santa Snacks Fragrance Oil.

Allow the wax to set up slightly.  You want the wax to be at a slush consistency.  Whip the wax with a spoon or fork.  Put the wax on top of the base of each cupcake.  You want it to look like the white portion of Santa’s hat.  However, you should save about ½ ounce of wax.

Then, cut the corner of the bag so you can pipe the wax.  Pipe the wax in a circular motion on top of the cupcake.  You want the wax to look like Santa’s hat, sort of a triangle shape.  This means wider at the base, and narrower going up.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-RecipePumpkin Pie Candle Recipe

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and all things pumpkin on your mind, I am sure you are going to love this project.  We were inspired by pumpkin pie of course!  That scrumptious, flaky pie crust, the sweet spice of pumpkin center, topped off with fluffy creamy whipped topping!  Your mouth is watering isn’t it?  Are you craving a slice of this tasty treat?  You could head to the kitchen and get baking.  Alternatively, you could save yourself some calories and make a candle instead.  However, I will warn you, if you have company over, they will probably walk in, take one sniff, and expect the real thing.  Our customers say Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil smell just like a freshly baked pumpkin pie.  We agree it is strong, authentic, and amazing!

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients available at Natures Garden:

Joy Wax
Pillar of Bliss Wax
Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil
Silicone Soap Mold –  24 Mini Pumpkins
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye Brown
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye Yellow
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye Orange
CD 12 Candle Wicks – You will need two of these.
Pouring Pot
Thermometer

Other Ingredients You Will Need:
Scale
Hot Glue Gun
16 Ounce Apothecary Jar
Toothpicks
A Pot (For Double Boiler)
Stainless Steel Mixing Spoon

Working With Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

We will start by preparing the embed for the top of the candle using our Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Since it is a pillar wax, it will pop out of the mold nicely.  Before beginning, we should go over the temperature recommendations for this pillar and tart wax.  Heat the wax to 195 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once it reaches this temperature, add your color, stir to incorporate the color.  Then, allow the temperature to drop to 180 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the fragrance oil.  Anytime you are melting candle wax use a double boiler.  This means placing water in a pot on the stove, then placing your pouring pot the warm water.  Also, remember to melt the wax on low heat.  Using low heat will prevent the wax from burning.

Working With Natures Garden’s Joy Wax

For the majority of our Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe, we will be using Joy Wax.  Joy Wax is a container wax.  What this means is it is made to adhere to whatever container you put it in.  If we tried to use the same pillar wax we used earlier, it would not cling to the jar.  So, since we want a nice glass adhesion, we chose a container wax.  First, we will go over the temperature instructions for the Joy Wax.  As always, you will want to melt the wax on low, and in a double boiler.  Heat the Joy Wax to 200 Fahrenheit. Add the candle colorant at this temperature. Let the container wax cool to 175-170F.  At this temperature, add fragrance oil. For the best results, we have found that pouring at 165-160F works well.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe Step by Step Instructions

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe EmbedPumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Wax Embed

Now, get the silicone pumpkin mold out, and we will start creating our wax melt embed.  First, you will need your pouring pot and your scale.  Place the pouring pot on the scale.  Next, add 1 ounce of Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Following the wax instructions above, melt your wax.  Use a toothpick to add a bit of the orange candle colorant.  Then, at the correct temperature, place your pouring pot on the scale, and add 0.1 ounces of Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil.  Stir with your stainless steel mixing spoon to fully incorporate all of the ingredients.  Finally, pour the orange candle wax into one of the cavities of the pumpkin mold and let it set up.  Once it has set up remove it from the mold, set it aside.  You will not need it until we are finished making the pumpkin candle.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare Your Jar

We chose to use an apothecary jar for this recipe.  Prior to creating your candle, you will need to have two CD 12 candle wicks.  You will also want to plug in and heat up your hot glue gun.  Place a dab of hot glue to the metal wick tab of each wick.  Adhere the candle wick to the bottom of the jar.  You want them to be equally spaced.  Also, be sure they are centered.

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Layer-1Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Pie Crust Layer

The next step will be preparing the bottom layer.  Our goal here is to achieve the color of the pie crust.  This layer will start at the bottom and go about one inch up.  Again, using your scale, place four ounces of Joy Wax in the pouring pot.  Melt the wax as described above.

When your Joy Wax is at the correct temperature, add your candle colorant.  You will need to add 1 drop brown liquid candle dye.  Then, use a toothpick to add a bit of yellow.  Stir to blend the color completely with the wax.  Next, place the pouring pot on your scale.  Add 0.4 ounces of Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil.  Once the wax reaches the correct temperature, pour it into the jar.  Remember, this is a layered candle.  Pay close attention to the sides of the jar.  You do not want to splash the wax on the sides of the jar.  I recommend pouring slowing, and also down the center of the jar.  Place a pencil across the opening of your jar.  Wrap your wick around the pencil.  This will keep your wicks centered and straight.  We allowed this layer to fully set up before moving to the next step.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Pumpkin Layer

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Poured-LayerNow, we will move to the second layer, the delicious pie filling.  This layer will also use our Joy Wax.  Also, this portion will fill the majority of the jar.  Now, get that scale out again.  Weigh out 10 ounces of Joy wax.  Melt the wax in the same manner you did before.

Next, to achieve the pumpkin pie color you will need three of our liquid candle dyes.  We used orange, brown, and yellow candle colorant.  Add 2 drops orange, one yellow, and one brown.  Alternatively, you could use color blocks.  However, you will need to play with the amounts a bit.  You will use two parts orange and one part of each brown and yellow color blocks.  Once you add your color, stir slowly, but thoroughly, to blend the color with the wax.

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Layer-2Now, at the proper temperature, add 1 ounce of Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil.  Mix well.  Lastly, remove the pencil keeping your wick in place.  Then, pour the wax into the apothecary jar.  Now straighten the wicks.  Put the pencil across the top of your jar.  Again, once your wicks are straight, and centered, wrap the candle wicks around the pencil again.  As before, allow this layer to harden completely.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Whipped Topping Layer

The final layer will be a whipped cream topping layer.  This layer also uses Joy Wax.  However, we will use it a bit differently.  We will be whipping the wax.  This will give the candle wax a whipped cream appearance.  You will prepare the wax as you have before.  The only exception is we will not be pouring it at 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Adding-FragranceGo ahead and get that scale out one last time.  Weigh out and melt 8 ounces of Joy Wax.  We will not be adding color to this portion.  The natural color of the Joy Wax represents the color of whipped cream nicely.  Go ahead and add 0.8 ounces of the pumpkin pie fragrance at the normal 170 – 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix well to incorporate the fragrance oil.

Now, this time, instead of pouring, let the wax set up a little bit.  You want your wax to be a slushy consistency.  Once it gets to this state, use your stainless steel spoon to whip the wax.  Whip the wax until it has a fluffy whipped cream texture. Now, remove the pencil, but as you begin adding your wax, remember you want the wicks to stay centered. Start adding your whipped wax to the top of the pumpkin layer.  Use the spoon to create peaks in the wax.  You will need to work pretty quickly.  Move to the next step before your wax finishes hardening.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe Finishing Touches

Remember that wax pumpkin embed you made earlier with our Pillar of Bliss Wax?  This is where you will need it.  Place that embed in front of your candle wicks.  You want to sink it slightly into your whipped topping.  Additionally, we looped the wick around the pencil before removing it.  This created a decorative curled wick.  However, it should be trimmed to 1/4 inches before burning.  We should also note, the pumpkin embed is purely decorative.  We recommend removing it prior to burning the candle.  It is a wax melt that can be used in yours or your customer’s wax burner.  It does, however, make for an adorable finishing touch on the candle.  We recommend letting the candle cure for a couple days prior to burning it.  But after that, light your candle and let the pumpkin aroma soar.

We hope that you enjoyed making our Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe with us!  Nature’s Garden feels it will make a wonderful centerpiece on your Thanksgiving table, or as a decoration in your home.  Not only does it smell amazing, but it looks fabulous too!  It has a strong scent and we are sure both you and you guests will love it this holiday season!   Once you finishing making this candle recipe we would love to see your results.  Take a picture of your finished candle!  Then tag us on Facebook or Instagram!  We can’t wait to see your homemade pumpkin pie candles!
