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.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe EggsEaster Basket Candles Recipe Preparing the Easter Egg Embeds

First, we are going to get the egg embeds ready. You will end up making twenty little Easter Eggs in each color, which may be too many. So, you can use any possible extras as wax tart melts to avoid waste. Once these are done you can set them aside to use in a later step.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Yellow Easter Egg Embeds

Now, you are going to create your first batch of Egg Embeds. Use a double boiler to melt 30 grams of your Pillar of Bliss Wax. Afterwards, use a toothpick to add in a tiny bit of Yellow Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and mix in the color. To add the yellow dye, dip the toothpick in the candle colorant then dip it in the melted candle wax.  Next, add and incorporate 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Finally, pour the wax into your  Easter egg embed mold. Once they set up, remove them and set them aside for later use.

Now, melt more wax to create the second batch of eggs. Put 30 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Wax into the double boiler. Then, once again, use a toothpick to add in a tiny bit of the Red Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance. Mix these ingredients into the batch and pour into the embed mold. Later, pop out your eggs and put them with your yellow Easter eggs.

Next, create the blue egg embeds for the top your candle. Use the double boiler to melt 30 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Wax. Add color to the wax with Blue Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and a toothpick. Scent your wax with 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Mix well and pour into the Easter Egg Embed Mold. Then, remove your eggs and place them with the others.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Purple Easter Egg Embeds

Finally, make the purple eggs to decorate the candle near the end of this process. Melt 30 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Wax in the double boiler. Scent the wax with 3 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil and color the wax with Purple Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye using a toothpick. Now, wait for the eggs to set up, remove them, and place them with all the other finished eggs.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Preparing the Easter Basket Grass

Second, we are going to create the green grass on top of the candle. We will create a solid chunk of green wax. Then, we will grate the wax into small pieces. These pieces will be sprinkled on top of your candles after all the layers are created. Thus, it will appear as though your candle has little Easter Eggs hidden in the green grass.

EEaster Basket Candles Recipe Green Waxaster Basket Candles Recipe Preparing the Green Wax

Now, we are going to prepare the wax that will be used as green grass. So, weigh and melt 200 grams of the Joy Wax. Then, add five drops of Green Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. Also, add 20 grams of Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Mix this mixture well to evenly disperse the color and scent. Next, pour your wax from before into a paper bowl.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Shred Easter Basket Candles Recipe Shredding the Green Wax

Next, we will shred the wax to make it possible to sprinkle on the candles. Once it sets up, remove the solid chunk of green wax for your paper bowl. Then, use a cheese grater to shred the wax into a medium sized bowl. Set the finished grass aside for later use. You will have enough grass to top both of the candles we are making today.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Candle Layers

Thirdly, you are going to create the actual candle part of this recipe. We will use four colored layers and three white layers to entirely fill the jar. When adding colorant, we use a dip a toothpick in the candle dye then into the melted wax.  We did this for each colored layer.  This prevented too much dye from being added.  It ensures a nice pastel candle color.  Also,make sure that each layer is fully set up before you proceed to the next layer. Further, we suggest that you work slowly and pour the wax into the center of the jar when you add a new layer.  Pouring in this manner will help you keep the layers level and even.  Also, make sure your jar will not be disturbed as each layer sets up.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Adhering the Wicks

First, you will need to adhere two wicks to the bottom of each of your jars. You can use hot glue to make sure that they each stay in place as you pour your layers. Otherwise, they may move during the process. This movement could result in the candle not being able to burn properly or the wicks being off center. Either way, you’ll want to prevent this.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Blue and WhiteEaster Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Blue and White Layers

Next, you will be creating the first two layers for this candle. Take 200 grams of Joy Wax and melt it in the double boiler. Then, use a toothpick to add in a tiny bit of the Blue Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and 20 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Now, add 100 grams of the blue wax to each of the candle jars. It may help to weigh this into another bowl before pouring.

After, make sure that this layer is completely set up. Then, your can begin the white layer. Weigh and melt 50 grams of the Joy Wax. Add 5 grams of the fragrance oil and mix well. Now, pour 25 grams of the wax into each of the candles.

Easter Basket Candles Recipe Purple and WhiteEaster Basket Candles Recipe Creating the Purple and White Layers

Now, you will be creating the next two candle layers. Weigh and melt 200 grams of the Joy Wax in a double boiler. Then, add a tiny bit of the Purple Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and 20 grams of the fragrance oil. After the white layer is entirely set up, pour 100 grams of the purple wax to each jar to create the next layer.

Later, you will be adding the second white layer. After the purple layer is completely set up, begin by melting 50 grams of the Joy Wax in the double boiler. Then, add 5 grams of the Carrot Cake Fragrance Oil. Finally, pour 25 grams of the wax into each of the candles.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Other Supplies You Will Need

Mixing Spoon
Stove
Scale
A Pot (for double boiler)
Apothecary Jars

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing Your Soy Wax

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing Your Soy WaxFirst, you will want to melt your soy candle wax.  You will want to melt your wax using a double boiler.  You can create a double by adding a few inches of water to a medium sized pot. Then, place your pouring pot in the water.

So, using your scale, weigh out 510 grams of your soy wax in your double boiler.  Then, melt the wax using the double boiler you created.  Once the wax has melted, remove it from the double boiler.  Finally, add 50 grams of NG Aloe and White Lilac Fragrance Oil.  Next, stir to mix the fragrance into the wax.  This portion of your candle will be left uncolored.  For now, let it cool.  We will come back to it.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Creating You Beeswax Embeds

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Creating You Beeswax EmbedsThis step can be done while you are waiting for your soy wax to melt.  Before beginning warm your shamrock mold in your oven.  Place your oven on the lowest setting possible.  Place the mold in your over and allow it to warm up.  It does not need to be hot, just warm.  Once it is warmed, remove it from the oven.  We warmed the mold so that the beeswax would cool slower.  By letting our beeswax cool as slowly as possible it made it more flexible when we adhered it to the jar.  If they cool too quickly they will not have as much flexibility and are likely to crack.  They also will not adhere to the jar as well.

Again, you will want to use a double boiler to melt your wax.  So, to your pouring, add 20 grams of beeswax.  Melt the wax.  Then, add 2 grams of NG Aloe and White Lilac Fragrance Oil.  Also, add one drop of green Spectrum liquid candle dye.  Then, use a mixing spoon to stir the ingredients together.  Finally, pour a very thin layer of the wax into two cavities of the Shamrock silicone mold.  Your shamrocks will not fill the cavities of the mold, the will be very thin.  Alternatively, you can pour the beeswax onto wax paper.  Then, use a sharp pencil to draw the shape onto the beeswax before cutting it out.  We used a similar technique in our Leopard Candle Recipe.  This leopard print soy and beeswax candle recipe will show you how that is done.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing You Jars

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing You Jars

 

There are a few things you will need to do before pouring your soy wax.  First, you want to warm your jar.  Again, with your oven on a low temperature, place your jar in the oven to warm it.  Remember, this will only take a few minutes.  You want it to be warm, not hot.  Once it is warm, remove it from the oven.

Next, remove your beeswax shamrocks from the molds.  Then, we will place the shamrocks in the jars.  Your shamrocks will be fairly flexible but it is still possible to crack them if you apply too much pressure.  So, make sure you do not try to rush this step.  Place your first shamrock in the jar.  Apply gentle pressure to the embed to bend it to the shape of the jar.  Then, press gently to adhere the embed to the jar.  Remember to make sure the embed adheres to the jar completely.  If it is not completely adhered the soy wax will get in between the glass and the beeswax.  Then, you will not be able to see the clover.  Repeat this process with the next shamrock.  You want to place the second shamrock on the opposite side of the jar.  Then adhere two of your CD 10 wicks to the bottom of the jar.  Make sure they are evenly spaced and centered.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Pouring Your Soy Wax

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Pouring Your Soy WaxNow, back to your cooling soy wax.  We will want to pour our soy wax at a very low temperature.  The temperature of the wax is very important for this step.  We pour at a low temperature because we do not want to risk melting the beeswax embeds.  So, once your soy wax 464 has come to about 110 degrees Fahrenheit, you are ready to pour.  Pour the soy wax into you apothecary jar.  Allow the soy wax candles to setup.  Then, leave it undisturbed while it sets up.  Finally, trim your wicks, place your lid on your jar, and allow your candle to cure before burning your candle.

We hope that you have had as much fun creating the Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe as we had.  For even more fragrance fun recipes check out all of our other candle, soap, and cosmetic recipes in our recipe box.  Our recipe box also offers numerous free downloadable classes to help you learn these wonderful crafts.  In addition, we love to see what you have been up to.  Post pictures of your latest projects on our Facebook page.  You can also tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.

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.

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.

Homemade candle crafters can use Nutmeg Fragrance Oil up to 7.4% with vegetable waxes and paraffin wax.  This scent will perform perfectly in Joy Wax, Wow Wax, and is also nice and strong in soy waxes.  Give your candles and homemade wax tarts some color by adding one drop of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax.  You can also color your melted wax with a small amount of brown color blocks.  Remember, never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick, preventing a proper burn!

Lastly, Nutmeg Fragrance Oil can be used to create a wide array of distinct, earthy products.  Bath gels, bath fizzies, and bath melts were found to perform well when the recommended maximum of 1.7% fragrance oil is incorporated.  Handcrafted perfumes and other recipes such as lotions, creams, or body sprays that will stay on the skin can utilize a maximum of 1% fragrance oil.  Homemade cleaning supplies also perform well with a maximum fragrance usage of 1.7%.

When we asked our perfumist to create some new Halloween/Gothic scents for us, he created a sexy scent that he referred to as “Intoxicating Edward”.  We love the Twilight series, and we were simply amazed at how well the perfumist captured the charming charisma of Edward in this fragrance;  his alluring eyes, his flawless, metro-sexual appearance, and even the way he glistened like gold when we was in the sun.  However, we chose to give this fragrance a name that lasted beyond the Twilight phenomena; thus we renamed this fragrance “Toxic Trance”.   NG Original Scent!

How Do Our Customers Use Toxic Trance Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Our customers can successfully include this masculine fragrance oil in their soap making supplies. Meaning that cold process soap making recipes can be created with this scent. Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this aroma will work well for this method of soaping. A batch of cold process soap that uses this scent will have no ricing, no acceleration, and no separation. The final soap result will have a very strong scent and the fragrance will have a yellow discoloration after cure. If you would like to color your soap creations, then we’d like recommend that you use blue liquid soap dye in your preferred amounts. Any soap creations can use different methods of coloring, just as long as you don’t use candle dyes as they lack body safeness.

Other bath and body products can be created with this sensual aroma. Bath oils, bath gels, soaps, lotions, perfumes, bath teas, bath bombs, and other related bath and body creations can be made of no more than 5% of this aroma. Similarly to soaps, these products can use blue liquid soap dye and not candle dyes.

How Do Our Customers Use Toxic Trance Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Our customers can include this sexy fragrance oil within their various room scenting products. Homemade potpourri and incense sticks can use this scent at a concentration of 50% and no more. Also, homemade household cleaners that work can be scented with a maximum of 5% of this scent. Sachet beads can be scented perfectly with this fragrance oil. Although this fragrance has been know to be successful in gel wax, it is still the customers responsibility to test each fragrance oil.

Furthermore, candle making supplies can successfully include this manly fragrance oil. These scented candles for men and scented wax tarts can each include up to 10% Toxic Trance Fragrance Oil.  This includes candles and wax melts made of vegetable waxes or paraffin wax. In addition, Joy Wax, Pillar of Bliss and our crystallized Palm Wax will each perform perfectly for this scent. Also, soy candle wax will retain a nice, strong scent with this fragrance. Candles and wax tarts can be colored with six drops of blue liquid candle dye with two drops of black liquid candle dye. Alternatively, a blue color block can be used. Our recommendations are based on a four pound batch of wax. Remember that crayons aren’t great colorants as they are likely to clog your candle wick.

How Do Our Customers Use Vanilla SPECTACULAR Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Create a line of bath and body products that is simply stunning with this fragrance!  Gels, bath bombs, and bath oils were found to do well when the maximum recommendation of 5% fragrance oil is added.  This spectacular fragrance oil is a spectacle to behold as it livens up all of your scented products.  Handmade perfumes perform well with this vanilla fragrance when a maximum of 5% fragrance oil is used.  Homemade lotions can also be created using this scent as up to 5% of your total recipe.  Homemade cleaning recipes can also be created using a maximum of 5%.

Soap makers 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 soaps made with this scent discolor to a dark chocolate color!  Also, there was no ricing, no separation, and no acceleration.  Cured soap had a strong scent retention.  We find that the discoloration of soaps with this scent accurately represents the fragrance, and therefore we do not recommend a colorant.  A contributing factor to the discoloration of soaps made with this fragrance is the 16% Vanillin content of this fragrance oil.  Vanillin contributes heavily to the discoloration of soap, but incorporating Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help reduce the effects of this discoloration.

If you wish to color your wax products, we would recommend using one drop of brown liquid candle dye, or a small amount of shredded brown color block, per four pounds of wax.  Do not use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Joy wax and wow wax have each been found to perform perfectly for this fragrance oil. Also, candle and tart recipes that use soy wax will have a nice and strong scent.

Bath gels, bath oils, various soaps created from different methods, lotions, perfumes and other related bath and body products can use a maximum of 5% for this fragrance oil.

Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have revealed that this grape scent is great for this method of soap making. A batch of soap that uses this fragrance oil will have no ricing and no separation. Since we have found slight acceleration when we soaped, we would highly suggest for you to soap at room temperature to avoid some of the acceleration we had. The final results will have a strong scent retention and the soaps will discolor to dark cream hue. Adding vanilla white stabilizer has prevented discoloration in a variety of instances. However, in this case, it will not work because the fragrance does not contain vanillin. If you want to color your bath products, then we would recommend using purple soap dye in your desired amount. Just never use any candle dye in your body products.

We hope that you enjoy this scrumptious grape scent in your creations!
