Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Prepare and Sanitize

Before you begin creating this bath and body recipe, you may want to make a few preparations. First, gather all the equipment and supplies that you will need to finish these bath bombs. Also, you may want to clean your equipment to ensure that it is ready to use. Additionally, you may want to prepare a spray bottle full of witch hazel, as it will be important for making bath bombs. Second, you will want to clean and sanitize a work area that you can use to create this recipe. 

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry IngredientsLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry Ingredients

First, you are going to want to get the dry ingredients ready for your bath bomb recipe. So, take you first medium mixing bowl and a scale. Now, weigh out the 300 grams of the Citric Acid, 600 grams of the Baking Soda,182 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, and 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder. After adding all of these ingredients, you will need to mix these powders together with your gloved hands. As you mix, make sure that any clumps you com across get broken up. Once these ingredients are smooth and mixed, you can move on to the next step of these instructions.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you are ready to prepare the wet ingredients that you will need for this recipe. So, grab a second mixing bowl and the scale. Weigh 18 grams of the Sunflower Oil into this bowl. In addition to the cosmetic oil, you will need to include 18 grams of our Floral Musk Fragrance Oil. Now that these ingredients are added, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Once both the wet and dry ingredients are prepared, you will be ready to combine the two mixtures. So, add the wet ingredients to your mixing bowl of dry ingredients. Now, use your gloved hands to thoroughly mix these ingredients together. You will need to continue to mix until everything is incorporated well. As soon as the ingredients look evenly dispersed, you can stop mixing.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Dividing the Mixture

Now you are going to be dividing your bath bomb mixture into two even portions. You can add each portion to one of your two mixing bowls. Set one of these bowls aside for the moment. We will be adding a few cosmetic ingredients to the other bowl in the next few steps.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Lavender FlowersLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Lavender Flowers

First, we will be working with the first portion of the bath bomb mixture. So, take one of the mixing bowls full of half the mixture and the scale. Now, you will be adding about 5 grams of the Lavender Flowers Whole herb to this portion of the cosmetic recipe. Again, you will need to use a gloved hand to mix the wholesale herb into the recipe fully.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Mixture

Now, you are ready to get these ingredients to stick together. So, use a gloved hand to mix the ingredients as you spray with witch hazel. Mixing as you spray will help to incorporate the witch hazel and let you know when you added enough spray. Once the mixture reaches a certain consistency, you will need to stop spraying the mixture. So, continue to mix and spray until the mixture begins to feel like crumbly dough. You will want to work slow and be careful not to add to much spray as it can ruin the recipe. Adding to much witch hazel can activate the ingredients early and lead to fizzing in the bowl. So, be sure to pay attention.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling Half of the Bath Bomb Molds

After, you are going to be ready to start filling up your bath bomb molds. You will need to take the seven bath bomb mold halves and get them ready to fill. Then, begin taking this mixture and filling one half of each wholesale mold. Make sure that you aren’t filling both sides of the same mold, as there is a top and bottom to each wholesale bath bomb mold. We would suggest filling the top half with this first mixture. You will need to make sure that you are packing the dough mixture into the bath bomb half tightly. Packing the mold well will ensure that the ingredients stick together and the bath bomb holds its shape.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding Herb Powder and Soap ColorantLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding Herb Powder and Soap Colorant

Next, you will be working with the other half of the bath bomb mixture. In this bowl you will be adding 5 grams of the Lavender Flowers Powder and 6 grams of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. Once these ingredients are added you will need to mix them well. Once again you will need to use a gloved hand to fully incorporate the herb powder and the colorant into the mixture.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Second PortionLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Second Portion

Then, you are going to be spraying this second portion of the bath bomb mixture with your witch hazel. Just like before you will need to use your gloved hand to mix as you spray. Once this portion of the bath bomb mixture reaches the same crumbly dough consistency, you will be ready to move on to the next step. While this recipe should require about the same amount of witch hazel as before, you should still pay attention to the consistency to ensure that you don’t spray too much.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling the Bottom of the Molds

Next, we are going to be filling up the other halves of the bath bomb molds. The first portion of the bath bombs molds should each be in the top of the bath bomb mold. So, you can fill the bottom of these molds with this second portion of the dough mixture. Again, you will need to pack the dough in tightly. Also, you need to do it this way to sure that each pair is matched up correctly, as the tops will only fit on the bottoms. If you mess this up, then you can end up with bath bombs that aren’t half and half. Once you are done, you should have seven purple bath bomb halves that are packed full.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Bath Bomb Molds

Now that both of the two portions are packed tightly into the bath bomb molds, you are ready to combine the halves. So, take one half that is uncolored, which should be in a top piece, and one half that is purple, which should be in a bottom piece. Next, you are going to lightly spray each of the two halves. After you spray, you can push the two pieces together to create a whole bath bomb! You will need to repeat this step for all of the bath bombs.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing the Bath BombsLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing the Bath Bombs

Lastly, you will need to wait for your bath bombs to completely set up. So, you will need to place your bath bombs in a safe place that they can rest until they have completely hardened. This can take up to 24 hours.  Once these bath bombs are set up, they are ready to remove from the mold! Alternatively, you can leave these bath and body products in their molds until you are ready to use them. So, the mold can serve as a simple bath bomb packaging idea!

Before you begin creating this herbal bath bomb recipe you may want to prepare your workspace and clean your supplies. First, you will want to clean and sanitize your workspace. Whether you are going to working on a table or countertop, you need to make sure that you have enough room to craft. So, you will need to make sure that you gather all the equipment and ingredients listed for this recipe. Then, you need to collect and clean all of your equipment for this cosmetic recipe.

Dandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing Your Dry IngredientsDandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing Your Dry Ingredients

So, you can just focus on breaking up all the clumps for now. Also, this process is easier while using a gloved hand.

Second, we are going to add the cosmetic herbs into our dry mixture. So, take the same medium mixing bowl with your dry ingredients to add these cosmetic herbs

Once there are no speckles of color and it has been evenly incorporated, you can set this bowl aside for now.

Dandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

You can either measure your wet ingredients directly into your bowl of dry ingredients or weigh them in a separate mixing bowl. If you add them directly to the dry ingredients, then you may want to work a bit faster. But, it should be okay to choose either method. Either way, you will need to weight out 18 grams of the Meadowfoam Seed Oil and 18 grams of the Tiare Flowers Fragrance Oil into one of these two bowls.

Dandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Ingredients

After, you will need to fully incorporate the fragrance oil and cosmetic oil into your mixture of dry ingredients.

Of course, anyone that has weighed out their wet ingredients in a separate bowl will need to combine the ingredients before mixing. Just make sure that your finished mixture looks like it has all the ingredients evenly distributed, as this will be the last time that you need to mix.

Dandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Mix with Witch HazelDandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Mix with Witch Hazel

Now, we are going to begin filling the bath bomb molds. So, grab the bowl of your mixture and spray it all with witch hazel. You will want to use enough to reach a crumbly dough consistency. You will want to mix with your hands as you spray the bath bomb dough. However, you need to make sure that you don’t use too much witch hazel. If you use so much that your dough begins to fizz, then you have activated the ingredients and this portion of the dough may not work right. So, be slowly and pay attention. Once you reach the right consistency, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Dandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing the Bath BombsDandelion Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing the Bath Bombs

Finally, you are ready to work on the last few steps. Once your mixed dough is ready to use, you can begin filling up your bath bomb molds. After you have two bath bomb mold halves filled, you can fit them together. First, spray each side of the bath bomb lightly with the witch hazel. Then, you can push the two halves together until the mold snaps shut. Once your first bath bomb is done, you will need to repeat these steps with the rest of your bath bomb dough. This should leave you with about six total bath bombs. Now, you just have to wait for the bath bomb to set up and they will be ready to use! You will know that you bath bomb has set up as it will harden, but the time that it takes can vary depending on humidity levels and climate.

Did you know? There are four main varieties of green tea prepared in Japan. Each type depends upon it’s leaf length, method of processing, and season of harvesting.

While we could have used our Green Tea Fragrance Oil in this recipe, we chose to use Lemongrass Kiwi Cassis. This fragrance oils is an unique, refreshing combination of fresh lemon pulp, orange rinds and tropical kiwi along with middle notes of eucalyptus, cassis, green tea, and bamboo. The base notes are of cedarwood and vanilla! A very uplifting, fresh green fragrance! It works perfectly in cold process soap, with no discoloring, accelerating, ricing or separating.

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Let’s Talk about a Few of the Ingredients

For this recipe we will be using citric acid and baking soda. Citric Acid can be used for many different industries and products. It can be used for medicinal purposes, skin care, hair care, bath and body products, soaping, and cleaning purposes. When used in soaps, it works as a water softener, and helps to produce better foam. When used in bath bombs and combined with baking soda, citric acid is responsible for the actual “fizzing” action of the bath bombs. Baking soda. Many skin care benefits come from baking soda. It gives the skin a silky and soft feeling, helps to treat many skin conditions and is also great for exfoliating the skin. For hair care, baking soda can be used in a rinse to make the hair softer and give it a silky feeling.

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: French Green Clay PowderGreen Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: French Green Clay Powder

French green clay powder is a perfect addition to this bath bomb recipe. French Green Clay is the most frequently used clay by health professionals and spas to treat skin conditions, to nourish the skin, and to remove impurities. This clay is light green in color when dry, but turns dark green when wetting agents are added.  The reason French green clay is green is because it contains actual decomposed plant material; making French green clay very nutritious for the skin. It contains some very important minerals such as,  Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Potassium, Copper, and Selenium.  Since French Green Clay powder is so full of healthy minerals, it can be added to mineral baths to help nourish the skin, remove impurities, relieve sunburn, and to aide in the relief of arthritis pain.

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Bentonite Clay PowderGreen Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Bentonite Clay Powder

Bentonite clay is a light greenish/beige colored clay that turns an olive color when water is added to it. Also, Bentonite clay is used in face mask formulations to help clean impurities from the skin and adding bentonite clay to bath bomb recipes helps to make your bath bombs harder.

This oil is very luxurious feeling and helps leave the skin soft, smooth and supple!

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Let’s Get Started

To begin with, you will need two mixing bowls. The first mixing bowl will be for your dry ingredients and the second bowl will be for your wet ingredients.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing The Dry IngredientsGreen Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing The Dry Ingredients

In your first bowl, weigh out 300 grams Citric Acid, 600 grams Baking Soda. Using your hands or a large mixing spoon, combine these ingredients together until fully mixed. Set this bowl aside, while you get the wet ingredients together.

 

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, in the second bowl, you will prep the wet ingredients. So, in the bowl, weigh out 18 grams of Argan Oil and 18 grams of Lemongrass Kiwi Cassis fragrance oil. Give these a stir with your spoon.

Now we are going to add the two bowls of ingredients together. To the dry ingredients, add the bowl of wet ingredients.

Next, you will be mixing the ingredients together. Using your hands to combine the ingredients well. You want to be sure the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture.

Now you will take the second bowl of mixture and weigh out 5 grams of the cut and sifted green tea and the 5 grams of bentonite clay powder. Give this a good mix together using your hands.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Using the Witch Hazel

At this time, we will begin using the witch hazel that was prepped earlier in your spray bottle. Begin with the first bowl and spray the mixture while mixing the contents with your hands. You want to keep spritzing and mixing until you have a crumbly dough-like consistency throughout all the bath bomb dough. Once the first bowl is done, you will set that aside and do the same with the second bowl.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Creating the First Half of the Bath Bomb

Now you will be forming the bath bomb and for this you will need your bath bomb molds. Keep in mind that each mold set will consist of two differently shaped parts. So, take one half of the bath bomb mold and fill it with the mixture that contains the green tea powder. Pack this into the mold half tightly and compactly.

Now you are going to put the bath bomb together. Before doing so, lightly mist each half of the bomb with the witch hazel. Then, press the two halves together tightly. The mold should snap together. You can set this mold aside to set up and continue the process of packing the halves of the molds and putting them together with the remainder of the dough. This recipe makes 6 bath bombs.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Letting Them Set Up

Finally, you will give your bath fizzies enough time to set up. This can be anywhere from 24-48 hours depending on the humidity of your environment. Keep your bath bombs in a cool, dry area away from places that they could get knocked down or roll away.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Ready to Use

You can choose to keep your bath bombs in their molds until you are ready to use them. This makes selling or giving your creations easy, clean and simple! However, if you wish, you can also remove the bombs from their molds and package them how you prefer. When it’s time for a bath, simply drop a bath bomb into some warm, running bath water. Relax and enjoy a nice, soak in a beneficial bath!

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blood Orange Fragrance OilOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blood Orange Fragrance Oil

Before we get started, did you know? The Blood Orange is actually native to Italy and their dark, red coloring comes from anthocyanins, an antioxidant that is more common in flowers and fruit, but not citrus fruit. What do blood oranges taste like? These oranges have a unique flavor compared to other oranges, with a strong raspberry-like flavor with undertones of citrus.

Now let’s talk a little about the fragrance oil. Blood Orange fragrance oil works wonderfully in cold process soaping. There is no discoloring, separating or ricing. Also, there is no accelerating so you have time to play when using this citrus fragrance oil in cold process soap. Plus the fragrance will stay strong through it’s cure time! The scent is a perfect orange scent! Bright, crisp and tart with a touch of floral in the base note is the best way to describe this fragrance. We know you will love this scent whether you use it in bath and body products or even in candles! It has a lovely, strong cold and hot throw!

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Before You Start Soaping

Before you get started on your soap making, it is always best to clean and sanitize your work area! Make sure you have washed and dried all your equipment and packing materials. Another good tip is to have all your ingredients and supplies within reaching distance! This helps ensure that as you are working everything is ready and on hand to make the process move smoothly. We strongly suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, face mask and safety glasses. Last but not least, if you are new to cold process soap making click here for basic soap making class. Also, before attempting to make any type of cold process soap, please become familiar with Soap Making Safety Class.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepping the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepping the Embeds

Our first step is preparing the orange slice embeds. You will need to make a total of 16 orange slices and for this your will be using a mini lemon/lime mold from flexiblemolds.com. These molds are perfect for soaping and even candle making. They are durable and clean up quick and easy! So go ahead and chunk up your Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Next,  weigh out 145 grams. After adding the soap chunks to a microwavable bowl and placing it in your microwave, melt the soap using 30 second intervals, stirring the soap each time, until it is completely at a liquid state.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the fragrance and colorOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the fragrance and color

Now that you have your soap melted, will be adding the Blood Orange fragrance and color. So, next, you will weigh out 7 grams of Blood Orange fragrance oil and 3 drops of Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant, adding it to the melted soap. Stir this well, making sure the color and fragrance are well blended.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the Embeds

The last step is pouring the soap into the mold. Have your mini lemon/lime mold ready and add the soap to each cavity of the mold. Once you have all the soap poured,  you will now go ahead and spritz the top of the soap with the rubbing alcohol you have ready in a spray bottle. This will help to release any air bubbles. You will let this sit until cool and firm.  You will need to make a total of 16 orange slices.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Removing the EmbedsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Removing the Embeds

So now that your orange slice embeds are set up, go ahead and remove them from the mold. Next, you will once again use the rubbing alcohol. Spritz your orange slices and sprinkle them with the sugar. The sugar will give your orange slices a candied look!

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Lye Solution

Now you will be starting the lye portion of your soap. First, you will weigh out 260 grams of distilled water in a bowl. Next, using a separate bowl, you will weigh out 95 grams of lye. Then, slowly add the lye to the water. You NEVER want to add the water to the lye! Stir to completely dissolve the lye. Now, set your lye solution aside for the moment and allow it to cool.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your OilsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Oils

At this time, you will prepare your oils while you are waiting for the lye solution to cool. In a deep mixing bowl, weigh out 68 grams of Apricot Kernel Oil, 68 grams of Argan Oil, 68 grams Avocado Oil, 171 grams Coconut Oil-76, 34 grams Grapeseed Oil, 102 grams Shea Butter, 68 grams Palm Oil, 68 grams Olive Oil Pomace, and 34 grams Macadamia Nut Oil. Next, you will melt your oils and once your oils are melted, you will set them aside to cool. You will want to allow both the soaping oils and the lye solution to cool to room temperature. You want the temperature to be within 10 degrees of each other.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your ColorsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Colors

So while you are waiting for your temperatures to drop, you can move ahead and prepare your colorants. First, you will prepare the titanium dioxide. This will be used for the white swirls of soap. In a small bowl, weigh out 5 grams of titanium dioxide. Then, mix that with a small amount of the soaping oils you have prepared to create a paste-like mixture. Mix this well. This will help the titanium dioxide to disperse more easily into the soap batter. You can set this aside for now.

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding the Sodium Lactate

Next, we will be moving onto the sodium lactate. Sodium lactate is used in cold process soaping to help harden the soap and allow a better release from the soap mold. So, in a small bowl, weigh out 16 grams of sodium lactate and set this aside for the moment.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance OilOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Prepare Your Fragrance Oil

Before we get started on our soap batter, you will want to have your fragrance weighed out and ready to add. So, in one last small bowl, you will weigh out 51 grams of Blood Orange fragrance oil. Set this aside also.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Mixing the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Mixing the Soap Batter

Now we are ready to prepare the soap batter. Your oils and lye solution should be at the temperature stated above. So to the cooled lye solution, add your 16 grams of Sodium Lactate. Carefully, stir your lye solution to incorporate the sodium lactate. Now, slowly add the lye solution to the soaping oils. Then, using your stick blender, emulsify the ingredients together.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Adding in the Fragrance Oil

Once you have emulsified your soap batter, you will add in the fragrance oil. So to the soap batter, add the 51 grams of Blood Orange Fragrance Oil that you weighed out previously. Then, use your stick blender, incorporate the scent into the batter.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Separate the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Separate the Soap Batter

Next, we will separate the soap batter for the two colors. So, into your first bowl, weigh out 272 grams of the soap batter into a separate bowl and add in the 5 grams of titanium dioxide we weighed out earlier. You can go ahead and stick blend this to combine.

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Coloring the Soap BatterOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Coloring the Soap Batter

You will not need to weigh out the remaining batter since this will be one color. So, to the soap batter that is left, add the 1 gram of Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant. Now you can stick blend this to combine.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blending the ColorsOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Blending the Colors

Now we are ready to combine the two colors together. So to the orange soap batter, add in dollops of the white soap batter. Once you have all the white added into the orange bowl, you will begin to swirl directly in the bowl. You can do this using your spatula, or even a wooden skewer, swirling the white batter into the orange batter.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the SoapOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Pouring the Soap

Now you are ready to pour your soap into the mold. Have the mold set in front of you and pour the swirled batter into the mold. Then, gently tap the mold on the table to help remove any air bubbles that may be trapped in the batter and smooth the surface of your soap.

 

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Topping the SoapOrange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Topping the Soap

Finally, we are ready to add our orange slice embeds to the top of our soap! Take your orange slice melt and pour embeds and arrange them evenly across the top. We found that if we added the slices to the four corners first, it helped keep the other slices evenly spaced out.

 

 

Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap Recipe: Curing Your Soap

When you make any type of cold process soap, you will allow the soap to set up for about 24-48 hours before removing it from the mold. Once you have removed it, cut the soap equally into 16 pieces. Lastly, you will allow the Orange Swirled Cold Process Soap to cure before using or selling.

Candle Making for Kids

Candle Making for KidsCandle Making for Kids

Arts and crafts are very important for a child to participate in. In the classrooms of today, there is a strong emphasis on the common cores of learning. Math, reading, writing, and science. Today, we will talk about candle making for kids.

However, the arts are just as important for a child’s growth as math can be. Learning about the world of creativity allows a child’s mind to develop in all kinds of directions. It’s never to early to start letting a child’s creative side take over. Simply holding a crayon, a paintbrush or a piece of chalk will start developing their motor skills. Their language will take shape as they learn words of description and colors. Decision making is also part of the creative process. “How do I want this to look?” “What color should the bird be?” Visual learning is very important because it gives the brain the freedom to explore, relax and not think of anything complex! Candle making for kids is a fun craft that lets kids explore texture, color, scents and all things creative!

Most kids love making and creating things for people they love. As a child, it was one of my favorite things to do. Nature’s Garden has some awesome recipes if you are looking for something different for the kids to explore. Creating candles with our Pillar of Bliss is a quick and simple craft for kids and parents. Not only is it safe, as there is no heating required, but you are able to let your creativity shine with designs, fragrances, and colors! If your child has ever made one of those “sand in jar” crafts, the technique is very similar.

 

Candle Making for Kids: Before You Get Started

Before you begin your creations, you will need to gather some supplies!

Candle Making for Kids: Pillar of Bliss

The type of wax that is best used in layering candles is our Pillar of Bliss. This wax is a soy/paraffin blend that is perfect for creating pillar candles or candles in molds. The wax hardens up beautifully and releases from the molds easily. It also makes wonderful layered candles! It lets you get creative without all the hassle of melting wax! Plus, it has amazing cold and hot throw!

Candle Making for Kids: Let’s Learn the Process!

Before we start on some of our favorite candle recipes, let’s talk about how the process of granulated candle making is done! As with any candle making prep, you will want to get your container ready by putting in your wicks. Which size wick do you use, you ask? Follow this link to find out the correct size! Now, simply add a drop of hot glue to the bottom of the candle wick tab and secure it to the bottom of your container, right in the middle. If the wick is to long, simply snip the excess off leaving at least 1 1/2 inch above your container.

Candle Making for Kids: Getting the Wax Ready

When it comes to layered candle making, fill each Ziploc bag with have their own color/fragrance mix. If you plan on making a lot of candles you can make your colored/scented layers in one pound batches. So let’s get your wax ready to color and scent. Using the gallon size Ziploc bags, you will weigh out your wax according to your recipe into the required number of bags. If your candle recipe calls for 6 layers, you will be using 6 bags and the wax will be divided and weighed out into each one.

Candle Making For Kids: Adding your Fragrances

As with any type of candle making, a general rule of thumb for adding fragrance oil to your wax is using 1 to 1 1/2 ounces per pound of wax. Therefore, each bag that holds 1 pound of wax will require 1 to 1 1/2 ounce of fragrance oil.

Candle Making for Kids: Adding the Color

Next, you will be adding color to each Ziploc bag. You will add the required number of drops according to your recipe, or simply add a small amount to achieve the color you wish.

Candle Making for Kids: Mixing it Up

Now that we have our wax, fragrance, and color added in, seal the bag tightly, and shake each bag, mixing the wax, fragrance and color up really well! Squeeze and squish it good! Get all that color worked in!

Candle Making for Kids: Adding the Wax to the Containers

Now that your wax is mixed up, you will start adding it to your container of choice. Simply open up your Ziploc bag a start pouring into your container. If you are layering colors, make sure you leave enough room! Always keep your wick straight when you are filling your containers. Continue adding the other colored wax layers the same way until your container is almost full.

Candle Making for Kids: Getting creative

Want to create a tie dye look? Take one of your wooden skewers and along the inside of your glass container and draw lines going down. Gently tap your container on the counter once you have drawn the lines and the colored wax from one layer will fall into these lines!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Bacon Candle Recipe

Our first recipe is incredibly simple and a good way to start kids out on the road to candle making. Bacon Candle recipe calls for Pillar of Bliss, our Spectrum Liquid Candle dye in shades of red, and of course our Bacon fragrance oil. Bacon fragrance oil? Yes, indeed! Smells just like bacon frying in a frying pan! Everything’s better with bacon, right? For this recipe, you will start off by separating the wax into 3 different Ziploc baggies, adding drops of colorant and then the Bacon fragrance. Next, your little candle maker will then massage the colors and scent it into the wax. Once that is done, simply pour the now scented/colored wax into your container, creating a layered look of bacon. This candle is perfect for younger kids to help create since there is no melting wax involved!

Candle Making for Kids Autumn Leaves Potpourri Recipe

Up next is a fun, fall recipe that requires a little bit of heat for melting. Even though this recipe is still quick and easy, some adult supervision is a requirement since some of the wax will be melted. The cute little leaves in our Autumn Leaves Potpourri recipe, are made with  Pillar of Bliss and colored with some pretty fall colors. We made these leaves with a mold from Flexiblemolds.com. These molds are durable, easy to clean up and are perfect for any candle or soap making! This particular mold is called dime sized Leaves candle and soap mold.  We scented this potpourri with our Autumn Woods fragrance oil. A lovely, fall woodsy scent of pine, citrus and cedar wood! We used 24 K Gold Mica to color the granulated part of the candle. These potpourris are so easy to make! They would make such pretty little gifts to give!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Green Camouflage Candle RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Green Camouflage Candle Recipe

Here’s another easy recipe that the young ones can definitely help out with! This Green Camouflage Candle is made just like our Bacon Candle. You will color and scent the wax in a bag and then create layers of various greens and browns to look like the camouflage that our brave soldiers wear. The fragrance we chose for this recipe is our Fresh Outdoors. This fragrance is perfect for those that love a fresh, green fragrance! You will get floral notes of lily and jasmine, orange and ozone. Perfect for those that love the outdoors! Your kids will have fun creating camo layers so let their imagination take over!

We chose the fragrance oil NG Can Can Fragrance Oil for the ultimate girly girl, camouflage and all! This scent is floral with a touch of vanilla and musk! Your little girl will have a blast making her own candle in pretty shades of pink, red and burgundy.

Candle Making for Kids: Rainbow Candle RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Rainbow Candle Recipe

This Rainbow Candle recipe would be fun to make when teaching kids the colors of the rainbow. This candle is truly simple to create and a definite must for the little ones to help make. Once the kids have finished squishing the color and fragrance into the wax using the Ziploc bag method, they can carefully pour their wax into the container to create a layered look of a rainbow. It couldn’t get any easier than that, right? We chose our fittingly Rainbow fragrance oil that smells like it’s just bursting with color! Yummy, sweet fruit of every kind hits your nose with one whiff!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri Recipe

Here is another potpourri recipe made like the Autumn Leaves recipe. Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri has pretty little blue snowflakes scattered throughout the glistening “snow”. Once again, we have used a mold from Flexiblemolds.com. This mold is the Mini Snowflakes candle and soap mold. We have added some Diamond Dust Mica to the granulated wax to make it shimmer and have scented the whole thing, the snowflakes and the snow, with our Jack Frost fragrance oil. The scent is a perfect wintry mix of peppermint and vanilla!

 

Candle Making for Kids: Hydrangea Candle RecipeCandle Making for Kids: Hydrangea Candle Recipe

What could be more perfect for spring or summer than our Hydrangea Candle Recipe? Hydrangeas are bushes that bloom beautiful hues of blues, purples and sometimes greens. We created the pattern to mimic the puffy blossoms of the hydrangea. The finishing touch is some cute little embed butterflies (because butterflies are attracted to hydrangeas). Of course, we scented this creation with our Hydrangea Heaven! This fragrance oil is a beautiful, soft floral scent that is perfect in candles and in soap making!

Candle Making for Kids: A Final Note

Making granulated candles are great for fundraisers! Use your school’s colors and get a copy of the mascot artwork. You can create a label with the mascot and school name then adhere to the front of your containers. If you have a special charity event that you are donating too, how about creating candles in the colors of the charity? Pink and white for Breast Cancer Awareness, purple for Cystic Fibrosis or red, white and blue for patriotism. There are so many options! You are only limited by your imagination!

We hope you enjoyed reading about all the fun candles kids can help create. Candle making in itself can seem daunting to anybody who has never made candles in their life. So, if you are a first timer, these recipes are perfect for you! Learning the steps, and the process of candle making is easy and these recipes can help you get started on a fun new hobby! Don’t forget the kids though! Helping kids develop through arts and crafts is an important part of growing and learning! We are sure they will enjoy making candles and memories just as much as you!

Just like with candle making, there is some equipment that you are going to need to get started. First, you will need a pouring pot to melt your wax. You will also need a pot filled with a few inches of water and a stove top. Your pouring pot will then be placed into the pot of warm water. Also, you will need a thermometer because you will need to add the fragrance oil at a certain temperature and you need to make sure the wax isn’t too hot when you pour.

Also, you will need to make sure you have a least have your basic supplies, which are candle wax, a scented oil, and packaging supplies. While there are many choices and options for customizing your wax melts, these two key ingredients are all you need to create your scented wax tarts. Also, you need to make sure that you have a plan for packaging your wax melts. There are many options, like clamshells, molds, and much more, and you just need one method to ensure that you are able to store your finished wax melts for later use.

There are many different types of waxes available from Natures Garden. We recommend using a pillar wax for your melts if you are putting them into a mold. However, there are still quite a few that are great when it comes to making a wax melt using a container wax. Choosing the type of wax is very important to the quality of your scented wax melts. So, you may want to learn a bit about your options before choosing a wax.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Beeswax Wax MeltsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Beeswax Wax Melts

Beeswax is a great choice for making wax tarts. It is perfect for creating hard wax tarts that are easy to package and use. You can either scent this wax on its own or add about 5-10% to a paraffin wax. Adding beeswax to paraffin wax will increase the integrity of the wax melt, which will make it easy to package and then use later. Also, adding some beeswax to your recipe will improve the color and your burn time of your wax tart.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Wow Wax Wax TartsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Wow Wax Wax Tarts

Speaking of paraffin wax, WOW Wax is a paraffin blend that is soft, creamy and has an excellent scent throw. While you may want to use this wax to make wax tarts, it could be difficult to make tarts. When you go to remove a wax melt from your clamshell or mold, the wax is likely to stick the container. This will ruin the shape and lead to a mess. So, this is when the beeswax comes in handy! Adding a portion of stearic acid or beeswax will make the wax harder and easier to use for making wax tarts. Alternatively, you could package your soft wax melts into portion cups. This will make it easier to transfer the wax to the warmer and cut down on some of that mess.

While you can use soy wax to create your homemade wax melts, a softer wax like soy wax may be harder to remove from a mold or clamshell container. Similarly, Joy Wax is a candle wax that blends soy with other ingredients to enhance the quality. So, Joy Wax will be a bit soft, as well. However, there are ways that you can effectively use this wax. Again, you could use individually portioned containers and just squeeze the wax into your warmer. Also, you can use Stearic Acid to harden your wax tarts. 

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Best Wax for Clamshell TartsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Best Wax for Clamshell Tarts

One of the best waxes for making wax tarts is our Pillar of Bliss Wax, as it is a strong wax made to create pillar candles. So, it will be sure to maintain its shape in the packages. We have made our basic Candle Wax Tarts Recipe with this wax because it is one of the easiest for clamshell wax melts. Also, we have done a few other recipes, like the Pumpkin Delight Chamshell Tarts and the Candy Corn Clamshell Tarts Recipe, with this candle wax.

Scented oils are an important part of creating your own wax tarts. Your fragrance oil warmers won’t be able to do much without a great scent. Plus, you need to make sure that your scented oil is added correctly or it may not mix properly with the candle wax. So, you need to be able to add your fragrance oils at the right temperatures.

One crucial thing that you need to remember with fragrance oils is that they should be added to the wax at the correct temperature. This can be found on the page for the individual candle wax. Each candle wax will be different. So, for the best results follow the instructions for that particular candle wax.  Each wax has been tested to find the temperature that will give you the best results using that particular candle wax.

Also, you need to make sure that you have an idea for packaging your wax melts. Otherwise, your tarts may set up before you are able to pour. Depending on the type of wax tart you are making, there are many different options. Here are a few of the most common options.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Portion CupsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Portion Cups

Another good option for wax melts is portion cups. These are especially useful for soft waxes, like container waxes. Many candle makers choose to use the same candle wax in their tarts that they use in their container candles. This way they do not have to purchase two different types of candle wax.  When using portion cups there will be less struggle trying to get the wax out of the container. Just squeeze the container and pop the wax into your wax warmer and don’t worry about a mess. This could also be a good container for transporting wax embeds of various shapes. For example, a few retro flower wax tarts could fit in a container for storage.

Another perfect way to create your wax melts is to use silicone candle molds wholesale. This allows you to make all kinds of fun shapes and designs. We used this recipe to create our scrumptious Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe, which is perfect for creating some little cupcake wax melts, too.
