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!

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: The 3 Fragrance OilsFor this candle recipe, we will be using three different Nature’s Garden fragrance oils for the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla layers of your homemade candle. For the chocolate layer, we have chosen German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil. It smells of rich chocolate cake with hints of pecans, vanilla, and coconut.

Next, we have Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil. This is a perfect blend of sweet strawberries and the tangy scent of rhubarb and an undertone of flaky pie crust.

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil

Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil

The last oil is Vanilla Insanity fragrance oil. The strongest vanilla scent that we offer!  It is a sweet vanilla scent with notes of French Vanilla, creamed butter, cotton candy, maple sugar, and of course, vanilla beans.

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.

Next,  pour the candle wax into your prepared jar.You need to allow this wax to cool and set, adjusting your wicks so they stay centered in your candle jar.

Next, melt 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt in your double boiler. Once again, using a toothpick, add a tiny bit of red liquid candle dye to your melted wax and blend well. You are going for a pink color for this layer.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

 

 

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.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub RecipeChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe:  A Closer Look at Some of the Ingredients We Will Be Using

Before we begin, we will take a closer look at some of the ingredients we will be using today.  Our chocolate soap recipe is a fluffy whipped soap scented with our Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil. Below, is an in depth look at the key ingredients in this soap recipe.

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance OilChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil

The first ingredient we will talk about is the scent.  Better Than Sex Cake fragrance oil by Natures Garden smells like German chocolate cake that is blended with semi-sweet chocolate chips and laced with crunchy toffee bits to create this decadent treat.  Vanilla creme and butterscotch syrup create a luscious undertone, while hints of almond and coconut complete the yummy blend.  An NG Original Fragrance!

Top Notes:  almond, coconut
Mid Notes:  toffee, chocolate
Base Notes:  butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate cake

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Whipped Soap BaseChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Whipped Soap Base

In this recipe, the whipped soap base is used to create the creamy layers of our bath butter.  This soap base can be used to create your own bath frosting, shaving soap, foaming body butter, and foaming sugar scrubs.  Simply whip our base with a mixer, add scent and colorant, and spoon into jars.  Our rich, luxurious-feeling whipped soap base leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized.  This whipped soap base is bright white in color and does not substantially deflate after packaging.

When using fragrances in the whipped soap base, we suggest using 1-5% of a body safe fragrance oil in your finished product.  Additional carrier oils can be added to this base, but we do not suggest adding any more than 5%.  When making foaming sugar scrub, please note that some of your sugar will dissolve in the base.  Fragrance oils can and may discolor your finished product.  When using fragrance oils with a vanillin content higher than 1%, you may want to consider using vanilla white stabilizer to reduce discoloration.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Organic Cocoa PowderChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Organic Cocoa Powder

Now, let’s talk about the natural colorant we used.  Cocoa powder is a wonderful brown colorant for soap, lotion, and other cosmetics.  In fact, I personally use it in my natural makeup recipes.  Organic cocoa powder is a fabulous addition to your cosmetics and soap recipes.  Cacao beans are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E and pantothenic acid.  They are also rich in the following minerals:  magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium.  Cocao beans contain caffeine, which is actually beneficial to the skin.  How does chocolate lip balm sound to you?  Chocolate facial masks?  Yummy!

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vegetable GlycerinChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin

We used the vegetable glycerin in the recipe to help mix our cocoa powder into our soap base without clumping.  We often use it when using natural powdered colorants to recipes for this reason.  However, vegetable glycerin is also used in other types of recipes.  For example, it can be added to melt and pour soap.  When added to melt and pour soap, it will give the soap some flexibility.

Vegetable glycerin is a clear, odorless, sweet-tasting liquid with a thick syrup-like consistency.  It is used in formulations of cosmetics, soaps, shampoo, herbal remedies, toothpaste, lotions, and other household items.  Vegetable glycerin is soluble in both alcohol and water; however insoluble in oil.  Vegetable glycerin is a humectant, which draws moisture to the skin.  It is added to lotions during the water phase in improve the emollience of the product.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: FUN Soap ColorantsChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: FUN Soap Colorants

This soap recipe uses Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants.  In fact, we use two of them.  We use both the brown oxide and the black oxide to color our Epsom salt.  These soap colorants are easy to use and stay true to color even when added to a product.  These vibrant soap colors are my personal favorite to work with when making soap!

So, what exactly are the FUN Soap Colorants?  They are pigments which are dispersed in vegetable glycerin. They come in oxides, aquamarines, and even some neon colors, just to name a few.  No chemical preservatives added.  All of our FUN Soap Colorants are considered to be VEGAN. Using liquid soap pigments which have already been dispersed in vegetable glycerin helps to prevent pigments from clumping in your soap.  All of these soap colorants work well in melt and pour soap, and cold process soap.  They are non-bleeding, perform well in high ph environments, and do not morph during the saponifcation process.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Epsom SaltChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Epsom Salt

Epsom salt can be used in many different products and industries. It can be used for hair care, medicinal purposes, skin care, cosmetics, bath and body products, gardening and cleaning products. It is used as a bath salt to help relieve stress and help to soothe sore muscles.

Many skin care benefits that are associated with the usage of Epsom salt. It is great for exfoliating the skin, smoothing out rough patches, and for preventing wrinkles. It also treats sun burn and helps to get rid of acne. Also, by rubbing it on your skin after taking a shower, it helps to make your skin smooth and silky and also takes away dead skin cells.

Feet ailments can be treated using Epsom salt as well. Soaking your feet in hot water mixed with Epsom salt helps to take away foot odor and foot fungus. It can also help to relieve the problems caused by athlete’s foot and also treats gout.

Epsom salt has many anti-inflammatory properties. Athletes can use it in ice baths after work outs to help with inflammation problems.Facial pores can be treated with Epsom salt as well. It has many exfoliating properties which work hard to give the pores a nice deep clean.

For hair care, adding Epsom salt to conditioners gives the hair extra volume. It also helps to remove excess oils from the hair. You can also make a mixture of water, Epsom salt and lemon juice that when used on the hair before showering, it will help to make hairspray easier to remove.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vanilla White Color StabilizerChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe Ingredients: Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

We used Vanilla White Color Stabilizer in this recipe to prevent our white layer from turning brown.  Vanilla White basically helps to lessen any discoloration that is cause by a vanilla content.  Since the Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil has a vanillin content of 6%, it would certainly discolor our white whipped soap base.

Natures Garden’s Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is a patent pending fragrance technology designed to be added to aqueous bases that have color stability problems resulting from vanillin and other aromatic ingredients which tend to oxidize and cause browning.  For the first time, water based formulas can be stabilized by including a small amount of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Phthalate-Free.

So, what products can Vanilla White be used in?  Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can be used such products as liquid soap bases, bar soap bases, glycerin soap bases, cold process soap, hot process soap, shampoos, conditioners, fabric softeners, detergents, air fresheners, and lotions; essentially any product that is not anhydrous.

Will begin by preparing the brown chocolate portion of our bath butter.  This portion will be colored using Natures Garden’s organic cocoa powder.  In addition, we will scent the whipped soap with Better Than Sex Cake Fragrance Oil.  So, in a deep mixing bowl, add 353 grams of the whipped soap base.

Now we will begin coloring the Epsom salt.  So, you will need both Natures Garden’s brown oxide and black oxide.  Then, add 4 grams of the black oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 2 grams of the brown oxide FUN Soap Colorant.

Finally, we will begin packaging the bath butter.  We will be adding a couple of chocolate layers, a couple white layers, and layer of Epsom salt.  So, you will need to have all three bowls in front of you.  You will also want a spoon for each bowl.  In addition, you will need four of the 8 ounce clear jars.  First, we will begin with our chocolate layer.  Add a couple spoonfuls of the chocolate whipped soap to each of your 8 ounce clear jars.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter
Now, add a layer of the white whipped soap to each jar.  This layer should be about half as thick as the previous chocolate layer.  You want to add it directly on top of the chocolate layer.  However, you want to be careful not to get any of the base on the sides of the jar.  If you do, you will be able to see it in the next layer.

Our next layer will be the Epsom salt layer.  This layer will contain about 40 grams per jar.  When you initially add this layer it will look like it is too much.  However, once you add the remaining layers on top, it will go down a bit.  So, add about 40 grams of salt to each jar.

 

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe: Packaging the Bath Butter
Now, simply finish layering your whipped soap.  On top of the Epsom salt, add another layer of white.  Then, a layer of chocolate.  Finally, a dollop of white on top.  Ultimately, you can layer your whipped soap in whatever manner your would like.

German Chocolate Cake Fragrance OilGerman Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight 

There isn’t much better than a thick, moist German Chocolate Cake, so we at Nature’s Garden thought It’d be great to share a recipe for a yummy German chocolate cake.  Make this cake and compare it to our German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil.  You will not be disappointed!

The cake portion requires the following ingredients to make; Cooking spray, 4 oz of sweet baking chocolate, 1/2 cup of water, 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour or 2 1/2 cups of cake flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of salt, 2 cups of granulated sugar, 1 cup of butter, 4 large and separated eggs,  1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 cup of buttermilk.

The coconut-pecan filling and topping will require 3 egg yolks, 1 cup of granulated sugar or packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, 1 cup of evaporated milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 1/3 cups of flaked coconut, and 1 cup of chopped pecans.

First, you’ll need to prepare the oven and cooking pans. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray three 8-inch or two 9-inch round cake pans with cooking spray. Then, cut waxed paper or cooking parchment paper to line the bottom of your sprayed pans.

Second, coarsely chop the chocolate, heat  the water and chocolate, and stir the combination frequently while it’s heating until the chocolate is entirely melted. Let cool.

Third, stir the flour, baking soda and salt until mixed in a medium sized bowl and set aside. Also, beat 2 cups sugar and 1 cup butter in a different medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy and set aside.

Fourth, use medium speed to beat 1 egg yolk at a time into the sugar and butter combination until thoroughly mixed. Then, use low speed to beat in the melted chocolate and vanilla. Using the same speed, beat in 1/2 of the flour mixture just until smooth, then beat in 1/2 of the buttermilk just until smooth. Repeat the last step one more time until smooth.

Fifth, use a small bowl to beat the eggs whites on high speed until beaten eggs whites form stiff peaks and fold in the egg whites using a spatula.

Sixth, pour batter into the pans and bake. The 8-inch pans should be in for 35 to 40 minutes and 9-inch pans for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Seventh, cook the egg yolks, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, the evaporated milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a saucepan for 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until thick and bubbly. Stir in the coconut and pecans. Cool for 30 minutes, while occasionally beating until spreadable.

Finally, spread 1/3 of the filling on the first cake, followed by the second cake and another 1/3 of the filling. Last, add the last cake and spread the rest of the filling on top!
