Keylime Pie Candle Recipe

Keylime Pie Candle RecipeThis keylime pie candle recipe was inspired by my absolute favorite dessert that not only tastes delicious but, with this free candle recipe, it smells delicious too!  As a kid, I remember my favorite place to visit was my Aunt. Not only because she is an amazing person, but her keylime pie was out of this world!  Luckily for me, she would send me home with the leftovers. She just knew how much I loved it. Since keylime pie isn’t on my diet this candle was just what I needed to get rid of that craving. Natures Garden’s keylime pie fragrance smells just like the dessert that I, and I’m sure many of you love.

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Embeds

First, we will prepare our lime embeds.  This will later use a couple of these to top our keylime candle.  Before we begin, I want to note just one thing.  We chose to prepare 10 of them, however, this recipe will only create one candle.  So, the remaining slices can be used in your wax melter or you can prepare less of the lime slices.  When melting 50 grams of wax, it will prepare 10 lime slices.

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your EmbedsLet’s begin by melting the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.  Weigh out 50 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Then use a double boiler to melt the wax.  Once you have melted the wax remove it from the heat.  Then, add 5 grams of Keylime Pie Fragrance Oil.  Mix well to incorporate the fragrance oil.  Next, use a toothpick to add a tiny bit of green liquid candle dye.  Then mix the candle colorant into the candle wax.  Then, pour the melted candle wax into the mini lemon/lime slices mold.  Allow these to setup.  Then, remove them from the mold.  You can go ahead and move on to the next step while you are waiting.

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Wax Pie Crust

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Wax Pie CrustNow, we will prepare the pie crust layer of the candle.  First, prepare your candle jar.  Use a hot glue gun to adhere two CD-12 candle wicks to the bottom of a 16 ounce apothecary jar.  Make sure the wicks are evenly spaced and centered.  Then, weigh out 115 grams of Joy Wax.  Again, using a double boiler, melt the Joy Wax.  Once melted, you will once again use a toothpick to add the color.  Dip your toothpick into the brown liquid candle dye.  Then, dip it into your melted wax.  Repeat this process with the yellow candle colorant.  Then, mix well to incorporate the color.  Next, add 10 grams of Keylime Pie Fragrance Oil.  Then, mix once again to incorporate the fragrance oil.  Pour the candle wax carefully into your jar.  Allow this layer to setup before moving to the next step.

Keylime Pie Candle Recipe Prepare Your Whipped Topping

A Pouring Pot

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

Stainless or Wooden Spoon

Stainless or Glass Measuring Cup

Stove Top or Hot Plate

Thermometer

Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue Sticks

Scale

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

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Sanitize and Clean

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

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Prepare the Containers

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

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Creating the Double Boiler

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

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Melt and Color the Wax

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

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Cooling the Wax

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

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Cleaning Your Pouring Pot

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

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Repeat These Steps

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

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

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

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

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

Now, we will be piping the wax.  You will need a decorating bag or a ziplock bag. Once the wax has a frosting like consistency, place it in a ziplock bag. Then, cut the corner of the bag so you can pipe the wax.  Pipe the wax in a circular motion on top of the cupcake.  You want the wax to look like Santa’s hat, sort of a triangle shape.  This means wider at the base, and narrower going up.

Other Things You Will Need:
Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon

Stove
Toothpicks
Pot (For Double Boiler)

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe: The Chocolate Pie Crust Layer

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Pouring the BaseWe will begin by using Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Wax. The nice thing about pillar waxes is that, since they are harder waxes, they will pop right out of your mold. Anytime you are using a mold, I would recommend using a pillar wax.

The bottom layer of this wax melts recipe will resemble a chocolate pie crust. In this section, I will walk you through the creation of this layer. It will be about 1/3 of your base. So, keep in mind, you will not be filling the mold completely with this layer. You will need two of the silicone mini cupcake molds ready. This recipe will create 16 pumpkin wax melts. Begin by melting your Pillar of Bliss Wax using the double boiler method. You will need to melt 3 ounces of pillar wax.

Once melted, you will need to add color. Since you only need a small amount, we suggest using two toothpicks. Get out both your black liquid candle colorant and brown candle dye. Now, dip one toothpick in the brown candle dye. Then, dip the toothpick in the wax. Now, using the second toothpick, do the same with the black candle colorant. Mix well to incorporate the color.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Pie Crust LayerNext, add 0.3 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil. Stir to blend the fragrance oil. Finally, you can now pour the melted wax in 16 of the mini muffin mold cavities. Remember, you will want to fill each of these cavities 1/3 of the way full. Allow this layer to set up completely.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe: The Pumpkin Cheesecake Layer

When creating the pumpkin cheesecake layer, we will again, be working with Pillar of Bliss Wax. This time you will need to melt 6 ounces of Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Again, weigh out the wax using a scale. Then, use the double boiler to melt it.

Once melted, add your colorant. You will again want to use toothpicks to add just a small amount of colorant. This time you will need three toothpicks. Use the toothpicks to add yellow candle dye, brown liquid candle colorant, and orange candle colorant. Mix well.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Cheesecake LayerNow, use your scale to add 0.6 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil. Mix well to incorporate the pumpkin scent. Finally, pour the wax into each cavity of the mold. You will fill the remaining 2/3 of the silicone mold. Allow this layer to set up.  Lastly, once they have completely hardened, remove the bases from the molds.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe: The Whipped Frosting Layer

When creating the whipped frosting, we will be using Joy Wax. Joy Wax, since it is a container wax, is softer making it ideal for our whipped topping. You will prepare the wax as you normally would, in a double boiler, adding your fragrance around 170 degrees. Add 0.9 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil to the Joy Wax. Stir the cheesecake fragrance oil into the wax completely. Now, you will want to wait for the wax set up a bit before you begin whipping it. Start whipping the wax when it has a slushy consistency. You can use a stainless steel spoon to whip the wax. You want to stir the wax until it has a whipped cream consistency.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Whipped LayerNow, begin topping each base.  You will need to use your spoon to scoop a small amount of wax onto each base.  You want it to look like frosting.  Use the spoon to create peaks in the Joy wax.  Lastly, get out the pumpkin pie spice powder.  Sprinkle a small amount of the pumpkin powder on each melt.

Once you have allowed that wax tarts to cure, they are ready to use.  Simply place one melt in your tart burner and enjoy the creamy pumpkin cheesecake aroma!  Have you created this wax melt recipe at home?  Or, maybe another product you would like to share?  We would love to see what you have come up with.  Post your pics on Natures Garden’s Facebook page or on Instagram, tagging us @ngscent.

Witching Hour FragranceWitching Hour Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The “witching hour” commonly refers to the time of night when witches and other supernatural beings are believed to be at their most powerful. In medieval times, it was believed that any woman out after midnight without a ‘legitimate reason’ to be out could have been suspected of witchcraft. In more modern times, the witching hour refers to the last hour of stock trading between 3pm and 4pm which sees a high amount of activity. Not as exciting as magic and ghosts and ghouls. Witching Hour Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is perfect for your fall bath and body recipes

What Does Witching Hour Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A fun Halloween fragrance composed of spicy, magical notes:  this accord begins with freshly ground cinnamon bark, and complemented with herbal notes of bergamot, cannabis flower, jasmine, and rose;  and sits on earthy base notes of sheer musk, black tea, and patchouli.

How Do Our Customers Use Witching Hour Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Candles! This spooky scent performs perfectly in Joy wax and WOW wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fun fall fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 6 drops of purple liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of purple color block into your melted wax. Never color your candles with crayons; it will clog the wick.

Room scents! This complex accord comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. (Try a reed sticks for easy room scenting!)

How Do Our Customers Use Witching Hour Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this Halloween aroma in bath oils, bath gels, and soap is 1%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance performed perfectly in CP soap. It showed no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, no discoloration, and good scent retention. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use purple soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color your bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! Now is the time where I’d normally recommend using natural soap colorant but, unfortunately, natural purple soap colorants are hard to find. You could try using activated charcoal powder to dye your soap black (or gray depending on how much you use). Activated charcoal is also a detoxifying agent and a natural odor absorber!

Body products (outside of the bath)! This magical scent performs perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body sprays is 0.5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in cleaning products is 1%.

Check out our Unscented Bases for an easy way to create the array of products listed above using this special scent- just be sure to not to exceed maximum recommended usage percentages!

Soapmakers can use 5% fragrance oil in hot process soap, melt and pour soap, or cold process soap recipes.  Our cold process soap testing results show that this fragrance oil causes slight acceleration, so soap at room temperature!  There was no ricing or separation.  Cured soap did not discolor and exhibited a strong scent retention.  If you wish to color your bath and body products, you may use teal liquid soap dye in the amount that satisfies you.  Remember not to use candle dye in any of your bath and body products as they are not body safe.

Waterlily Fresh Mint Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is an integral part of any clean, fresh scented product line!  Handmade perfumes perform well with this fragrance when a maximum of 5% fragrance oil is used.  Also, homemade lotions can be created using  this fragrance Oil.  We recommend lotion recipes use no more than 5% fragrance oil.  Homemade cleaning recipes can also be created using a maximum of 5%.

Further, homemade cleaning products can’t be scented with this fall fragrance oil. While these cleaning products aren’t made to use directly on the skin, they do get a lot of skin contact. Therefore, customers should know, it is unsafe to use this fragrance oil in cleaning products.
