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.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment That You Will Need

Mixing Spoons
Stove
Scale
Pot (for double boiler)
Glass Mug
Toothpicks
Cheese Grater
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!

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!

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!

What Does German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of fresh baked chocolate cake with notes of pecans, butter, vanilla, and coconut.

How Do Our Customers Use German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil?

Fall Fragrances For Candlemaking

Fall-FragrancesFall Fragrances for Candlemaking

It’s Autumn– time to decorate your home in warm, earthy tones, but no home is completely decorated without the soft glow of candlelight and a house-warming scent. (Save the unscented candles for your jack-o-lanterns outside and be sure to brush up on your candle safety!) We’ve got lots of fun festive fall fragrances at Nature’s Garden, but some were created specifically with creating scented candles in mind– these oils are not body safe. They still smell amazing- we just don’t recommend using them in any bath and/or body products. Here are three exceptional autumn aromas you can use to make delightful decorative candles, classic candle wax tarts, or relaxing, robust room scents!

Harvest Type Fragrance Harvest Type Fragrance Oil

A spicy blend of cinnamon bark and clove bud on a dry down of musk. A simple yet sophisticated seasonal scent. Maximum recommended usage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestions are 4 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of orange and brown color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum recommended usage in room scenting applications is 50%.

Mulled Cider FragranceMulled Cider Fragrance Oil

Strong base notes of ripened apples and oakmoss with a complex blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, orange zests, lemon peel, and a touch of tart lychee berries and coumarin. Maximum usage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestions are to use 6 drops red plus 2 drops brown liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of red and brown color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum usage in room scents: 50%.

Pumpkin Pie Spice FragrancePumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil

The aroma of sweet cream pumpkin, complimented with nuances of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and ginger; rounded out with buttery vanilla notes. Maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Coloring suggestions: 4 drops orange liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of orange color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum usage percentage in room scenting applications: 19.7%.

We’ve got some cute fall-themed molds that you could use to make candle potpourri tarts: pumpkins (of course), small leaves, oak leaves and acorns, and for Halloween: the BOO mold!

For room scenting applications: try aroma beads or a reed stick diffuser kit.

You could also try dipping colorful fall leaves in scented wax to preserve them and use as decoration– just be sure to set them in a glass or metal dish because fragrance oil may have an adverse reaction with the surfaces of your furniture.

If you’re absolutely aching to make pumpkin-pie-spice-scented bath and body products, try our Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Powder— it’s safe for use in bath and body products. I even used it as an ingredient in my first ever sugar scrub; I can attest to its amazing aroma. Need that vanilla kick? Try adding some Vanilla Powder or Natural Vanilla Infusion. (I used the vanilla oil in my sugar scrub recipe- smells great!) Now what about the pumpkin part? Try adding pumpkin puree! (Everything mentioned in this paragraph is body safe- but don’t put any of it in your candles!)

Pumpkin Cheesecake FragrancePumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Pumpkins are very popular this time of year. Not only do the orange gourds make beautiful decorations, but they also make some delicious desserts. We’ve already covered Pumpkin Eggnog and Pumpkin Roll, but now we’re going to talk about mouth-watering Pumpkin Cheesecake. Cheesecake itself is already very nice, but add some pumpkin puree and extra spice, and voila! You’ve got a sensational seasonal treat. It can be described as a mix between cheesecake and pumpkin pie. It’s even a popular seasonal flavor of ice cream- a triple threat: pumpkin pie, cheesecake, and ice cream! Regardless of how you choose to eat it- we can all agree that it smells delicious.

The incredible aroma of cardamom, ground cinnamon, Vermont maple, pumpkin puree, carrot, whipped cream, rum, cream cheese, caramelized sugar, and French vanilla which is all blended to true perfection.

The maximum recommended usage percentage for this delicious aroma in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 2 drops orange plus a small amount of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of orange and a small amount of brown color block into your melted wax.

Discoloration is likely due to the high vanillin content of the fragrance: 8%. You can combat discoloration due to vanilla with our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. But remember- you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products made with this delicious dessert scent are to use orange and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.

Pleasingly Pumpkin FragrancePleasingly Pumpkin Fragrance Oil Spotlight

It’s time for the autumn season and time for pumpkins! It’s a big ol’ pumpkin party! We’ve even got two famous festivals in Ohio celebrating the orange gourds: The Barnesville Pumpkin Festival and The Circleville Pumpkin Show. Both celebrations boast giant pumpkin contests. The competing pumpkins in Barnesville are so big that conventional scales are too small- the funeral home scale is used instead! Extra spooky! Pumpkins competing for King Pumpkin in Barnesville typically weight over 1400 pounds. The largest pumpkin to date at the Circleville Pumpkin show was almost 2000 lbs. Both festivals feature parades and pageants. If you love pumpkins as much as these folks, then this is the fragrance for you!

Our cold process soap testing found that CP soap made with this fragrance had perfect pour: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and strong scent retention. It did, however, discolor to a chocolate color. This is likely due to the fragrance’s 5% vanillin content. Vanillin has a tendency to discolor bath and body products to varying shades of brown; more vanillin means darker discoloration. In order to combat discoloration due to vanilla, we recommend trying Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Remember- you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you!
