Neapolitan Candle RecipeNeapolitan Candle Recipe

Did you know that Neapolitan ice cream originated in the late 19th century in Italy? Most likely in the city of Naples. Italy was actually the originator or all ice cream, or gelato if you will. Neapolitan ice cream was actually inspired by Spumoni. Spumoni is a three flavored ice cream that used pistachio, cherry and chocolate ice cream with a fruit and nut layer in between. So why vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate? When ice cream made it’s way to the states these were the most popular flavors at the time. And in elementary school, do you remember sampling freeze-dried Neapolitan Ice Cream that the astronauts were able to take with them into space? I can remember! The texture was crumbly and it melted quickly the minute it touched your tongue, but I’ll stick to the regular Neapolitan ice cream thank you very much! Who doesn’t love this classic flavor?  You have three yummy flavors all in one bite! Today, Nature’s Garden is sharing with you their Neapolitan Candle Recipe. An eye-catching layered candle recipe to mimic this classic, old-time ice cream.  When you have finished creating this fun new candle, check out an easy recipe for Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich Cake! It’s truly magnifico!

All three of these fragrances will blend and compliment each other as your candle burns through the layers. You will have a house smelling of an Italian bakery!

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare wax for the Strawberry Embeds Part 1

We will be using our Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax for our embeds.  Pillar of Bliss is a soy and paraffin blend that has wonderful scent retention as well as a wonderful cold and hot throw. To work with Pillar of Bliss, melt the wax to a temperature of 195 degrees F and add your color. Let the wax cool to 180 degrees Fahrenheit before adding your fragrance and let it cool to 175 degrees Fahrenheit before pouring into your molds. When melting any kind of wax, though, we suggest the double boiler method. Place on your stove, an old cake pan or pot with at least a 1/2 inch of water, place your pouring pot inside the cake pan or pot to create a double boiler.

For our Neapolitan Candle Recipe, we need to first prepare the strawberry embeds that will top your candle. Using a double boiler, melt 2 grams of Pillar of Bliss candle Wax.

Prepare the Strawberry Embeds:  Adding the Candle Dye

Prepare the Strawberry Embeds:  Adding the Candle DyeYou always want to be careful adding candle dye to your creation. Our Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye is concentrated and a little can go a long way.  Always start small to test the color you are trying to achieve. We suggest using toothpicks for this process. So take a toothpick, dip into the green Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. Now you dip the toothpick into the melted wax. Mix to incorporate the color.

 

Then you fill only the leaf portion of the strawberries embed mold. Let this cool down and harden.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the wax for the Strawberries Embed Part 2

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the wax for the Strawberries Embed Part 2Next, we need to prepare the red wax for the strawberries. Using your double boiler, melt 10 grams of Pillar of Bliss, stirring to help with the melting process. Take your toothpick, dip it into your red Spectrum Liquid candle dye and add it to your melted wax.  Next, add 1 gram of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil and stir to incorporate it. Now you can add this melted wax to into the remaining portion of the strawberry cavity. Allow this to setup before removing from the mold. Set your strawberry aside to top your candle later.

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan Embeds

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan EmbedsNow we are going to work on our pecan embeds. First, you need to weigh out 20 grams of Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Then, using your double boiler melt the wax, stirring occasionally. Once this has melted, use a toothpick to add a tiny bit of brown Spectrum liquid candle dye and yellow Spectrum liquid candle dye. Stir to incorporate this and then pour into your pecan embed mold.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan Embeds
You will make 6 pecans total. Allow your pecan embeds to cool and setup.  Once they have setup, remove your pecans from the mold and set them aside
.  We will need them when we begin topping our candle later.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepping your Candle Jar

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepping your Candle JarNow you will want to prepare your candle jar. First and foremost you will need to have the correct size wick for your jar of choice. Prior to ordering wicks, measure the diameter of your jar. The size of your wick depends on the diameter of your jar. We are going to use 2 CD-10 size wicks. CD wicks are our most popular candle wicks. They are easy to work with and give a nice, clean burn for your candle. If you need further assistance with figuring out your wick size, check the description of the wicks for size recommendations based on the diameter of your jar. Once you have chosen your wick, you will use your hot glue gun to firmly adhere the wicks to the bottom of your container. Simply dab a bit of glue to the bottom of the metal part of your wick and press it firmly to the bottom of your jar. Repeat the process for the second wick. Keep in mind that as your candle cools, adjust your wicks so that they are straight and stay centered.

Another trick that you can do to make pouring your wax easier is to warm your jar beforehand. Simply turn your oven on to the lowest temperature, place the container on a cookie sheet and place in the oven. You do not want your jar hot, Just warm and still easy to handle without burning yourself. Warming your jars prior to pouring into them will help the wax adhere to the jars better.  This will help eliminate the wet spot look.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate Wax

Let’s talk Joy Wax. Nature’s Garden Joy Wax is a blend of soy and paraffin that is amazingly easy to work with. It melts beautifully and sets up smooth and creamy. You also get an awesome cold and hot scent throw! When working with Joy Wax, we suggest melting to 200 degrees F. You can add your candle dye at this temperature, but allow it cool to a temperature of 170-175 degrees Fahrenheit before adding your fragrance. When your wax has cooled to 160-165 Fahrenheit you can pour your wax into your container of choice.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate WaxWeigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt using your double boiler. Once this has melted you will need to add a tiny amount of brown Spectrum liquid candle dye using your toothpick. You are going for a chocolate color. Mix this to blend well. When your wax has cooled to the suggested 170 degrees F you may now add 9 grams of German Chocolate Fragrance Oil. Stir well to incorporate the fragrance.

Allow the wax to cool to the suggested temperature and then add 9 grams of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil. Stir this to blend the oil and wax well.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Chocolate Layer

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Chocolate LayerNow, it’s time to work on the second half of the candle. We will start with the chocolate layer. Weigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt the candle wax in your double boiler. Once it has completely melted, add the brown Spectrum liquid candle dye using the toothpick method. Stir to incorporate the colorant and once the wax has cooled to the correct temperature, add 9 grams of German Chocolate Cake fragrance oil and stir well to combine. Pour this wax on top of your cooled and set strawberry layer. Allow this to cool and set up before moving on.

Next comes the “whipped cream” for your candle. First, weigh out 150 grams of Joy Wax and once again, melt it in your double boiler. Once this is completely melted and cooled, add 15 grams of Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil and stir well to incorporate the scent. Carefully pour into your mixing container and allow this melted candle wax to begin to setup. Now, begin whipping the wax to a frosting-like consistency.

 

Next, top your candle with the whipped wax giving it the look of a whipped cream topped sundae and then place your strawberry and pecan embeds on top for the final touch! You may want to use your candle right away, but it is suggested to allow your candle to cure for about 3 days.  Then, trim your wicks to about 1/4″ before burning your homemade candle.

This is a great gift idea for bacon lovers and dads alike. Not only will he adore having his very own bacon candle, but there is no hot wax involved in the creation of this bacon candle. This kid friendly project allows children the enjoyment of making their father a unique bacon scented candle, while you can rest easy knowing they won’t be burned. Plus, what shows you care more than spending time on a one of a kind gift that he’s sure to love?

Here are the ingredients you will need:

Pillar of Bliss Wax- 10 Pounds

Bacon Fragrance Oil

Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- BROWN 1oz.

Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Red 1oz.

CD Candle Wicks (100 wicks)

Disposable Pipettes

1- 16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar
(3) Ziplock bags for mixing colored wax
Hot Glue Gun
Disposable Spoons
Pencil

Scale

Toothpicks

Bacon-Candle-Step-1Using a hot glue gun, glue two CD-12 wicks to the apothecary jar.  Make sure they are place equally apart in the candle jar.
For the next step you will need three ziplock bags.  In each of the 3 bags, weigh out 120 grams of Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.

 

Now, add 12 grams of Nature’s Garden Bacon Fragrance Oil to each bag.
Next, we are going to color the wax using Natures Garden Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. This candle colorant will be added straight to the ziplock bag just like you did with the fragrance. In the first bag add 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Red and 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Brown.  This will be used for the darker red color.  Bag two will be used as the light pink color.  Dip a toothpick tip into the red spectrum candle dye and place the dye into the wax.  Dip the toothpick one more time into the red candle dye and work into the wax.  Lastly, dip another toothpick into the brown dye one time and incorporate into the wax.  The third ziplock bag will remain uncolored.  Shake each bag well.  Make sure all of the color and bacon fragrance oil is fully dispersed.

Now, it is time to begin creating your candle.  We suggest using disposable spoons for this.  We will simply be layering the wax to create a bacon like look.  Start with the uncolored Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Place the wax along the bottom of the jar.  You will want to make a thin line of uncolored, bacon scented wax.  Directly on top of the uncolored wax, place a layer of the light pink wax.  On top of the light pink granulated wax, place a thin layer of the dark red wax.  Continue layering the wax until your jar is completely full.  Be careful when filling your jar.  You want to make sure the wicks remain centered as you fill the candle container.  Once you have filled the jar, use a pencil to curl the candle wicks.
