Eggnog Candle RecipeEggnog Candle Recipe

It is that time of year again, eggnog season.  Today, I will share with you a candle recipe we created using our Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  This eggnog candle recipe looks good enough to drink!  While we obviously do not suggest drinking it, it sure does smell and look just like the real thing.  Finally, we you finish creating the candle be sure to check out my absolute favorite real eggnog drink recipe.  It is thick and delicious and something I make every year during the holidays.

Scale
Pot (for double boiler)
Glass Mug
Toothpicks

Paper Bowl
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for the Main Candle

455 grams Joy Wax
45 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil
Toothpick Spectrum Yellow Liquid Candle Dye
Toothpick Spectrum Brown Liquid Candle Dye

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for Whipped Portion of Candle

85 grams Joy Wax
8 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Jar for the Candle

First, prepare your mug.  We use a glass mug that we picked up at our local grocery store.  Our mug was slightly under 3.5 inches in diameter.  So, we used a CD-12 wick in our mug.  The size of the wick that you use will depend upon the diameter of the mug you are using for your candle.  While I can’t tell you the exact size you will need, I can tell you that I highly recommend the CD candle wicks when using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Our size recommendations, based on diameter, can be found in the description of our CD candle wicks at the link in the ingredients list above.
Once you have determined your wick size, use a hot glue gun to adhere the candle wick to the bottom of your jar.  You will want to make sure the wick is centered in the mug.  Once your wick is in place unplug your hot glue gun and move on to the next step.

Now, let’s prepare our Joy Wax.  In order to melt the Joy Wax, we will use a double boiler.  This will slowly melt the wax and prevent it form scorching.  You will need to first prepare a pot of water. The pot only needs to be filled with a few inches of water. Heat the water.  Once you have your wax weighed out, you will need to place your pouring pot inside the hot water to melt the wax.
So, in your pouring pot, weigh out 455 grams of Joy Wax.  Then, place the pouring pot inside the pot containing the water.  Allow the wax to melt.  Once the temperature reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the pot from the heat.

Next, we will be adding our colorant.  When using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax the colorant should be added at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, for this candle recipe we will need both Spectrum yellow candle dye and Spectrum brown liquid candle dye.  Now, we only need a little bit of each.  While it can be hard to get just a small amount of liquid candle dye out with a dropper, it is not impossible.  In order to get just a small amount you will simply need a couple of toothpicks.  First, we will add the yellow candle colorant.  Go ahead and dip your first toothpick into the yellow colorant.  Then, dip the yellow colorant into the candle wax.  Throw this toothpick in the trash.  Next, dip your second toothpick into the brown candle dye.  Then, dip this same toothpick into the candle wax.  Throw your second toothpick into the garbage.  Finally, mix to fully disperse the candle colorants.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance OilEggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance Oil

When working with Joy Wax, we suggest adding your fragrance oil between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.  So, today, we will be using Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  We couldn’t create an eggnog candle without an eggnog scent, right?  So, we will be using 10% fragrance oil for this recipe.  So, when your wax is at the correct temperature, add 45 grams of your Natures Garden Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  Then, make sure you mix the candle wax for about 30 seconds.  This will ensure that your eggnog scent is completely blended with the candle wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle Wax

Now, we will be pouring our candle wax.  When using Joy Wax, we recommend pouring your candle wax in warmed jars.  By warming your candle jars before pouring into them, it will help your wax to cling very nicely to your jars.  This is because your wax cools very slowly, allowing time for air bubble to release from the wax and thus the wax adhere to the walls of the jars better.  You want to put your jars into the oven at the very lowest setting.  So, turn your oven on the lowest temperature possible.  Then, place the jars on a pan and in the oven for just a few minutes. Do not allow them to get hot, they only need to be warm.

When pouring the wax, the temperature should be between 160 degrees Fahrenheit and 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once your candle wax reaches this temperature, pour the wax into your jar.  Make sure your wick is centered and secured in the center.  I use a fine tooth comb to keep my wicks in place.  Place the comb across the jar’s opening and put the wick centered in between the teeth of the comb.  Lastly, allow the candle wax to setup before moving to the next step.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Melting the Wax for the Whipped Topping

Joy wax can easily be used as a whipped topping on your candles.  For this particular recipe, we will be using 85 grams of Joy Wax.  However, we will be leaving this portion of the candle uncolored.  Once again, we will be using a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  So, go ahead and melt the wax using this method. However, this time bring the wax to a temperature between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  The Joy Wax does not need to get any hotter since we are not adding any candle colorants to it.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil to the Whipped Topping Portion of the Candle Wax

Now, we will be adding fragrance oil to the whipped topping portion of the candle wax.  Once your candle wax temperature is between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit, add 8 grams of the Eggnog scent.  Then, mix the fragrance oil into the wax with a clean mixing spoon.  Stir for about 30 second to be sure that the Eggnog Fragrance Oil is completely mixed with the Joy Wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

Next, we will begin whipping the Joy Wax.  This portion of the wax will be placed on the top of our main candle.  This will give your candle the look of a creamy top that you see on a glass of eggnog.  While it may look more complicated, all the topping requires is cooled and whipped Joy Wax.  All you will need is the candle wax and a mixing spoon.

 

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

So, you want to allow your Joy Wax to cool.  As it cools stir it periodically.  Once it is at a thicker consistency, begin mixing until it takes on a whipped topping type consistency. Once the Joy Wax has reached this consistency, use a spoon to scoop it on top of your setup candle.  While you are topping the candle, make sure you keep your candle wick centered.

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing TouchesEggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing Touches

There are a couple of things we will be adding to the candle to finish it off.  First, we will be adding a small cinnamon stick.  I should note that this will need to be removed prior to burning, but it does give your candle an adorable finishing touch.  We will also be grinding and adding cinnamon to the top of the candle.

First, we will add a cinnamon stick.  Place the cinnamon stick vertically, but slightly angled right inside your candle.  It should stick out slightly though.  You want it to look like it is floating in your jar.

In addition, we will need to grind just a little bit of a cinnamon stick.  We will grind the cinnamon using a cheese grater.  While yes, we could use pre-made ground cinnamon, it won’t be as coarse or look as nice.  So, go ahead and grind just a small amount of the cinnamon.  To do this, place your cinnamon stick horizontally across your grater and move it across the grater quickly.  Finally, sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top of the candle.  Then, give your wick and little curl and your candle is finished.  Just remember to let the candle cure for a few day before using it or selling it.  This will ensure that your candle’s scent is a strong as possible.

Are you now craving the real thing?  I have tried many eggnog recipes myself.  Personally, my favorite eggnog recipe is this eggnog recipe from Tastes Batter From Scratch.  It is thick, creamy, and delicious.  It is sure to be an instant hit!

Narcissist Fragrance OilNarcissist Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Narcissist Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden smell so good that it loves itself.  It sits around its fragrance house burning Narcissist candles, because it likes the seductive, warm blend.  It even bathes using Narcissist Fragrance Oil soap, because it performs so wonderfully!  All joking aside, as nothing negative is implied by the name of this enticing scent.  The word Narcissist comes from a Greek myth about a man named Narcissus.  After rejecting advances from a mythological counterpart, he laid down staring into his reflection in the water, falling deeply in love with his own reflection.  Staring into this fragrance oil probably won’t make you fall in love with yourself (if this happens, consult Greek mythology for possible solutions), but you will certainly be enamored with the scent of Narcissist Fragrance Oil!

What Does Narcissist Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Narcissist Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is a blend that is purely seductive.  Fall in love with Egyptian musk and enchanting patchouli, spiced with the subtle sweetness of cinnamon, orange blossom, and anise.

Top Notes: Peach, Raspberry, Osmanthus
Mid Notes: Cinnamon, Anise, Rose, Orange Blossom
Base Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Egyptian Musk

Homemade candle crafters can use Narcissist Fragrance Oil up to 10% with vegetable waxes and paraffin wax.  This scent will perform perfectly in Joy Wax, Wow Wax, and is nice and strong in soy waxes.  If you wish to color your candles, we would recommend 2 drops of red liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax.  You can also color your melted wax with a small amount of red color blocks.  Do not use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

How Do Our Customers Use Narcissist Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Products?

Your bath and body collection will get a notable, enticing boost when you incorporate Narcissist Fragrance Oil!   If you are making cold process soap, you may use this mystical aroma up to 5% of your total recipe.  Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results show that this fragrance oil soaps nicely.  Soaps made with this scent experienced no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation.  Cured bars of soap discolored to a light butter and had a very strong scent!  We would recommend using red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you if you choose to color your bath and body products.  Remember not to use candle dye in any of your bath and body products as they are not body safe.

Narcissist Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is a scent with which your customers will sure fall in love!  Bath gels and oils were found to perform well when the recommended maximum of 5% fragrance oil is incorporated.  Customers can create their own perfumes with a maximum of 5% fragrance oil used, they have been found to perform very well.  Homemade lotions should also adhere to a 5% fragrance oil maximum.  Homemade cleaning supplies can also be created with a maximum fragrance usage of 5%.

Candy Corn Fragrance OilCandy Corn Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Candy Corn Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is the sweet, buttery smell of the classic Fall candy. Did you know? When candy corn was first sent into production, the company making it called it chicken feed!  This name was given to the chewy treat because the individual pieces resembled dried kernels of corn.  The pieces are roughly 3 times larger than a real kernel of corn.  It wasn’t until years later when a new company purchased the candy corn product that its new name was branded.  Candy Corn is everywhere around Halloween time, which makes this fragrance instantly recognizable.  If you’re looking to build your Fall line or create some delicious-smelling, unique Halloween products, Candy Corn Fragrance Oil is definitely a must-have!

What Does Candy Corn Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil is a mix of warm vanilla candy with top notes of butter.  These notes rest on a very subtle down of almond.

How Do Our Customers Use Candy Corn Fragrance Oil?

Enjoy a Halloween harvest classic with Candy Corn fragrance oil.  Customers love creating room scenting projects with this fall fragrance oil.  Room scenting recipes can blend up to 50% of this fragrance oil into products such as oils for burners, homemade reed diffusers, and potpourri.  This candy fragrance can also be used to handcraft strongly scented aroma beads.  If you are looking to create homemade candles or tarts, you can use Candy Corn Fragrance Oil up to 10%. This includes vegetable waxes and paraffin wax.  In our testing, this childhood scent performed extremely in our Pillar of Bliss Wax, which is a wax used in homemade wax melts and homemade pillar candles.  If you wish to color your candles, we would recommend making a three-layered candle with the colors of orange, yellow, and white.  If you make wax tarts, we recommend the same.  We have even created a Candy Corn Clamshell Recipe demonstrating this technique.  This coloring suggestion can be accomplished by using either liquid candle dye or small amounts of color blocks.

Candy Corn Fragrance Oil can even be used in your bath and body products.  Both soap and bath oils were found to smell great when the recommended maximum of 5% fragrance oil is incorporated.  Whether you make homemade melt and pour soap or cp soap, you can use 5% fragrance oil.  We have even shown exactly how this fragrance oil performs in CP Soap.  Make sure you check out our Cold Process Soap Testing Results Video.  This sweet fragrance oil had a good scent retention in cured soap and discolored to a light brown. Using Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can help correct some of this discoloration, but you will need to test.  The soap experienced no ricing and no separation.  There was no acceleration. If you wish to color your your soap or bath products, we would recommend using orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.

Customers also incorporate Candy Corn Fragrance Oil into other scented projects.  One such product is homemade perfume.  Homemade perfumes perform well with this warm fragrance when a maximum of 5% fragrance oil is used.  Homemade lotions perform very well also. We recommend adhering to a 5% fragrance oil maximum.  You can even create homemade cleaning products.  These types of projects also perform well when a maximum fragrance usage of 5%.

To use the liquid dyes, just put a few drops of the liquid into your melted wax.  If you are in the mood for more of a pastel color (or if you are doing a very small batch) for your candle, all you have to do to the dye is dilute it using vegetable oil with the ratio of 1:1. Be careful with the amount of dye you use as well. When you use liquid dye, it allows you to create more consistent coloring in your candles since you count how any drops are put in. But be careful not use more than 10 drops per pound of wax, or else your candles may have a chemical smell to them.

For our color block dyes, the colors we offer are red, burgundy, yellow, blue, green, purple, brown, cinnamon, teal, cranberry, and a coral/peach. To use a color block to color your candle, simply shave off the desired amount and place it into your melted wax.  One color block is actually enough to easily deeply dye 15 pounds of wax. When using color blocks, they actually do not produce colors as vibrant as the liquid dyes, so they are better when trying to attain more subtle colors. However, when using color blocks, make sure that the block is fully incorporated before pouring your candle! They can tend to produce little specks of colors on the bottoms of your candles if they are not fully melted and mixed into the wax.

Want to give your pillar some sparkle to bling it up a little bit? Use some of our Gold Pigment Mica or our Diamond Dust Mica to dust the outside of your pillars! This will give your pillars a beautiful shimmer! Have you ever thoughts of using crayons to color your candles? Well, please don’t! Using crayons for coloring can actually cause the candle to start smoking and may even clog your wicks! Crayons are not alone in this predicament. When dying your candles, be sure not to use too much color as this can cause the wick to become clogged and it may cause your candle to smoke more than it should be. It can even inhibit the throw of your chosen scent and reduce the melt pool of the candle. Candle dyes are not for cosmetic use either!
