Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe Tutorial

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 3
Step 1
:  Begin with cleaning your work area.  Also, clean and sanitize the supplies you will be using.  I would also suggest wearing a Natures Garden apron to protect your clothing, as well as a hair net and gloves.  Set out your lip balm pots, so they are ready to be filled.

Step 2: 
Once you are prepared, get your scale out.  In a microwave safe bowl, weigh out 3.35 ounces of our all natural lip balm base.

Step 3:  Next, in your microwave, melt the lip balm base.  You want to melt it slowly.  We suggest heating it in 30 second intervals, stirring as you heat it.  Heat only until your base is liquefied.  I should note, another option is to melt the base in a double boiler.  However, we chose to use our microwave.

Step 4:  Now, in the second bowl melt your white chocolate wafers.  We use seven chocolate wafers.  The chocolate is used as a sweetener in our Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe.  Again, melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.

Step 5:  Once both the base and chocolate are melted, add the chocolate to the base.  Stir well to incorporate the white chocolate in your lip balm.

Step 6:  Add your mica.  While the base is still in a liquid state, mix in 1/2 teaspoon of Natures Garden’s diamond dust mica.

Step 7:  Add your essential oil.  Use a disposable pipette to add 20 drops of our peppermint essential oil to your melted lip balm base.  Stir well to incorporate.

 

 

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 9Step 8:  Finally, add the lip balm to the containers.  We used disposable pipettes to put the lip balm into the 10 ml clear lip balm pots.

Step 9:  Once your lip balms set up completely, place the white lids on top.  Your Winter Wonderland Lip Balms are now ready to use!  We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts RecipePumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe

I’m sure by now you have tried pumpkin cheesecake pies.  If you haven’t, you really should they’re delicious.  Often times, here at Natures Garden, our inspiration comes from food.  This time our inspiration for our Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe was, what else, Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites.  Click here to see both our inspiration and a scrumptious recipe for pumpkin cheesecake bites.  I assure you, you will love them!  I personally am not the biggest fan of regular pumpkin pie, but when you add in a little creamy cheesecake, I am in heaven!  You MUST try them, they are the perfect pumpkin pie alternative for Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Ingredients Found At Natures Garden:

Pillar of Bliss Wax- 10 Pounds
Joy Wax- 1 SLAB
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- ORANGE 1oz.
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- BROWN 1oz.
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- BLACK 1oz.
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- YELLOW 1oz.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil
POURING POT
THERMOMETER
Silicone Soap Mold- 12 Mini Muffins
Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Powder

Other Things You Will Need:
Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon
Scale
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.

Before you begin making our Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe you will want to clean and sanitize your work area. We also recommend wearing protective clothing such as gloves, a hair net, and one of Natures Garden’s adorable aprons. Not only will they protect your clothing, but you’ll look fabulous while making your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting OilsPumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Double Boiler

One more thing before we start, you should know, placing your oils and butter on direct heat can burn your oils. For a double boiler, you will need two pots. Fill one of your pots with water. Place this pot on the stove using low heat. Then, add your weighed out butters and oils to the second pot. Place the second pot in the first pot containing the water.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Melting Your Oils

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Weighing-OilsYou will begin by weighing out the following, 136 grams Coconut 76 oil, 93 grams Sunflower Oil, 74 grams Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 62 grams Shea Butter, 50 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax, 20 grams Meadowfoam Seed Oil, 20 grams Pumpkin Seed Oil,12 grams White Beeswax. Now, you should place these ingredients in your double boiler. Allow them to melt.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Preparing Your Colorants

While you are waiting for your oils to melt, you can go ahead and prepare your colorants. You will need three small mixing bowls. While we will also be using Natures Garden’s Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant, this will not be needed until later in the recipe. For now, we will just be preparing the powders that are needed for coloring. Once you have prepared them, you can set them aside, we will come back to them.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Orange LayerBowl One: The Orange Layer

To your first mixing bowl, weigh out and add grams of orange peel powder. Then, to the powder, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. Now use one of your mixing spoons to stir the ingredients. You are looking for a paste like consistency. Just make sure you have removed any lumps in the powder. Creating a paste allows the powder to disperse better, or more evenly in your scrub.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Brown LayerBowl Two: The Brown Layer

In the second mixing bowl, weigh out and add 4 grams of your pumpkin pie spice blend. Again, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin. You want to mix them again with a clean spoon to create a paste.

Bowl Three: The White Layer

To bowl three, we will just be weighing out the titanium dioxide. You simply need to weigh out two grams of titanium dioxide oil dispersible. Since we will be adding this to our oils, you do not need to create a paste with this one.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Other Ingredients

Next, once your oils have melted, remove them from the heat. You will need to watch the temperature closely. This step is extremely temperature sensitive. The reason for this is, the optiphen. Optiphen is a preservative used to prevent bacteria in the scrub. While typically optiphen is only added to products that contain water, we chose to add it because scrubs tend to come in contact with a lot of water. It needs to be added at 120 degrees. If it is added at a higher temperature, above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you will burn off the preservative. However, adding it below 120 degrees Fahrenheit will cause separation.

Once your oils reach the magic number of 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add the following ingredients, 18 grams Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil, 5 grams optiphen preservative, 5 grams vitamin E oil, and 15 grams arrowroot powder. Mix well to fully incorporate all of the ingredients.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding SugarNext, add your white granulated sugar. Mix thoroughly, incorporating the sugar completely into the oils. Then, divide the mixture into three equal parts. This will mean you will be adding approximately 394 grams of the mixture to two empty bowls, leaving the remaining in your current mixing bowl.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding Your Colorants

Pumpkin-Sugar-Scrub-Recipe-Pumpkin-ColorantNow, let’s add some fun to the scrub! Colors! Remember those colorants we prepared earlier, this is when you will need them. Go ahead and get them. In your first bowl, add the titanium dioxide oil dispersible, this will be your white layer. Mix well to fully incorporate the powder. Now, to bowl two, add the pumpkin pie spice blend paste to your sugar mixture. Stir the paste into the sugar scrub until it is fully dispersed. Finally, to bowl the last powder add the orange peel powder blend, along with two drops of the neon orange Fun Soap Colorant. Again, mix well to incorporate the colorant evenly.

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe Adding the Scrub to Your Jars

Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe LayeringFor the next portion of the pumpkin scrub recipe, you will need to allow the mixtures to come to room temperature. Also, be sure you do not see any oil sitting at the top of the product before moving to this step. Once you are ready, we will begin adding the sugar scrub to the jars. You will need seven four-ounce jars clear PET jars. Also, have seven 58/400 white dome lids ready.

We began layering our scrubs with the brown, pumpkin layer. However, you can begin with whatever color you choose. Another option would be to create more layers. While we only created three layers, you can make as many layers as you wish. So, here is how we created our layered scrub. You will begin by filling each of the seven jars 1/3 of the way full with the brown portion of the sugar scrub. Now, fill another 1/3 of the jar with the white portion of the scrub. Finally, top the jar off with the orange portion of the scrub. Once your jars are filled, whip away any residue on the jars. Then, place the white dome lids on top.

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this emulsified Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Recipe with us. Let us know what you think! Also, we would love to see how you have created your body scrubs. Show us your pictures by tagging us on Instagram @ngscents.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-RecipePumpkin Pie Candle Recipe

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and all things pumpkin on your mind, I am sure you are going to love this project.  We were inspired by pumpkin pie of course!  That scrumptious, flaky pie crust, the sweet spice of pumpkin center, topped off with fluffy creamy whipped topping!  Your mouth is watering isn’t it?  Are you craving a slice of this tasty treat?  You could head to the kitchen and get baking.  Alternatively, you could save yourself some calories and make a candle instead.  However, I will warn you, if you have company over, they will probably walk in, take one sniff, and expect the real thing.  Our customers say Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil smell just like a freshly baked pumpkin pie.  We agree it is strong, authentic, and amazing!

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients available at Natures Garden:

Joy Wax
Pillar of Bliss Wax
Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil
Silicone Soap Mold –  24 Mini Pumpkins
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye Brown
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye Yellow
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye Orange
CD 12 Candle Wicks – You will need two of these.
Pouring Pot
Thermometer

Other Ingredients You Will Need:
Scale
Hot Glue Gun
16 Ounce Apothecary Jar
Toothpicks
A Pot (For Double Boiler)
Stainless Steel Mixing Spoon

Working With Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

We will start by preparing the embed for the top of the candle using our Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Since it is a pillar wax, it will pop out of the mold nicely.  Before beginning, we should go over the temperature recommendations for this pillar and tart wax.  Heat the wax to 195 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once it reaches this temperature, add your color, stir to incorporate the color.  Then, allow the temperature to drop to 180 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the fragrance oil.  Anytime you are melting candle wax use a double boiler.  This means placing water in a pot on the stove, then placing your pouring pot the warm water.  Also, remember to melt the wax on low heat.  Using low heat will prevent the wax from burning.

Working With Natures Garden’s Joy Wax

For the majority of our Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe, we will be using Joy Wax.  Joy Wax is a container wax.  What this means is it is made to adhere to whatever container you put it in.  If we tried to use the same pillar wax we used earlier, it would not cling to the jar.  So, since we want a nice glass adhesion, we chose a container wax.  First, we will go over the temperature instructions for the Joy Wax.  As always, you will want to melt the wax on low, and in a double boiler.  Heat the Joy Wax to 200 Fahrenheit. Add the candle colorant at this temperature. Let the container wax cool to 175-170F.  At this temperature, add fragrance oil. For the best results, we have found that pouring at 165-160F works well.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe Step by Step Instructions

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe EmbedPumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Wax Embed

Now, get the silicone pumpkin mold out, and we will start creating our wax melt embed.  First, you will need your pouring pot and your scale.  Place the pouring pot on the scale.  Next, add 1 ounce of Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Following the wax instructions above, melt your wax.  Use a toothpick to add a bit of the orange candle colorant.  Then, at the correct temperature, place your pouring pot on the scale, and add 0.1 ounces of Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil.  Stir with your stainless steel mixing spoon to fully incorporate all of the ingredients.  Finally, pour the orange candle wax into one of the cavities of the pumpkin mold and let it set up.  Once it has set up remove it from the mold, set it aside.  You will not need it until we are finished making the pumpkin candle.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare Your Jar

We chose to use an apothecary jar for this recipe.  Prior to creating your candle, you will need to have two CD 12 candle wicks.  You will also want to plug in and heat up your hot glue gun.  Place a dab of hot glue to the metal wick tab of each wick.  Adhere the candle wick to the bottom of the jar.  You want them to be equally spaced.  Also, be sure they are centered.

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Layer-1Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Pie Crust Layer

The next step will be preparing the bottom layer.  Our goal here is to achieve the color of the pie crust.  This layer will start at the bottom and go about one inch up.  Again, using your scale, place four ounces of Joy Wax in the pouring pot.  Melt the wax as described above.

When your Joy Wax is at the correct temperature, add your candle colorant.  You will need to add 1 drop brown liquid candle dye.  Then, use a toothpick to add a bit of yellow.  Stir to blend the color completely with the wax.  Next, place the pouring pot on your scale.  Add 0.4 ounces of Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil.  Once the wax reaches the correct temperature, pour it into the jar.  Remember, this is a layered candle.  Pay close attention to the sides of the jar.  You do not want to splash the wax on the sides of the jar.  I recommend pouring slowing, and also down the center of the jar.  Place a pencil across the opening of your jar.  Wrap your wick around the pencil.  This will keep your wicks centered and straight.  We allowed this layer to fully set up before moving to the next step.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Pumpkin Layer

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Poured-LayerNow, we will move to the second layer, the delicious pie filling.  This layer will also use our Joy Wax.  Also, this portion will fill the majority of the jar.  Now, get that scale out again.  Weigh out 10 ounces of Joy wax.  Melt the wax in the same manner you did before.

Next, to achieve the pumpkin pie color you will need three of our liquid candle dyes.  We used orange, brown, and yellow candle colorant.  Add 2 drops orange, one yellow, and one brown.  Alternatively, you could use color blocks.  However, you will need to play with the amounts a bit.  You will use two parts orange and one part of each brown and yellow color blocks.  Once you add your color, stir slowly, but thoroughly, to blend the color with the wax.

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Layer-2Now, at the proper temperature, add 1 ounce of Pumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil.  Mix well.  Lastly, remove the pencil keeping your wick in place.  Then, pour the wax into the apothecary jar.  Now straighten the wicks.  Put the pencil across the top of your jar.  Again, once your wicks are straight, and centered, wrap the candle wicks around the pencil again.  As before, allow this layer to harden completely.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe: How to Prepare the Whipped Topping Layer

The final layer will be a whipped cream topping layer.  This layer also uses Joy Wax.  However, we will use it a bit differently.  We will be whipping the wax.  This will give the candle wax a whipped cream appearance.  You will prepare the wax as you have before.  The only exception is we will not be pouring it at 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pumpkin-Pie-Candle-Recipe-Adding-FragranceGo ahead and get that scale out one last time.  Weigh out and melt 8 ounces of Joy Wax.  We will not be adding color to this portion.  The natural color of the Joy Wax represents the color of whipped cream nicely.  Go ahead and add 0.8 ounces of the pumpkin pie fragrance at the normal 170 – 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix well to incorporate the fragrance oil.

Now, this time, instead of pouring, let the wax set up a little bit.  You want your wax to be a slushy consistency.  Once it gets to this state, use your stainless steel spoon to whip the wax.  Whip the wax until it has a fluffy whipped cream texture. Now, remove the pencil, but as you begin adding your wax, remember you want the wicks to stay centered. Start adding your whipped wax to the top of the pumpkin layer.  Use the spoon to create peaks in the wax.  You will need to work pretty quickly.  Move to the next step before your wax finishes hardening.

Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe Finishing Touches

Remember that wax pumpkin embed you made earlier with our Pillar of Bliss Wax?  This is where you will need it.  Place that embed in front of your candle wicks.  You want to sink it slightly into your whipped topping.  Additionally, we looped the wick around the pencil before removing it.  This created a decorative curled wick.  However, it should be trimmed to 1/4 inches before burning.  We should also note, the pumpkin embed is purely decorative.  We recommend removing it prior to burning the candle.  It is a wax melt that can be used in yours or your customer’s wax burner.  It does, however, make for an adorable finishing touch on the candle.  We recommend letting the candle cure for a couple days prior to burning it.  But after that, light your candle and let the pumpkin aroma soar.

We hope that you enjoyed making our Pumpkin Pie Candle Recipe with us!  Nature’s Garden feels it will make a wonderful centerpiece on your Thanksgiving table, or as a decoration in your home.  Not only does it smell amazing, but it looks fabulous too!  It has a strong scent and we are sure both you and you guests will love it this holiday season!   Once you finishing making this candle recipe we would love to see your results.  Take a picture of your finished candle!  Then tag us on Facebook or Instagram!  We can’t wait to see your homemade pumpkin pie candles!

Bath and body products can include this floral and musk fragrance oil in products. Homemade bath fizzies, creams and lotions recipes, perfume sprays and oils, as well as other kinds of bath and body creations can use up to 5% of this romantic scent. If you want to add color to any of your bath and body creations, then we would recommend using some purple soap colorant and blue soap dye in your preferred amounts to achieve your favorite color. Just don’t ever use candle dye to color these products due to their skin staining potential.

For instance, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this fragrance oil is great for this particular method of creating soap. A batch containing this fragrance oil will have no ricing and no separation. Since this soap batch would have some acceleration, we recommend soaping at room temperature to reduce some of this acceleration. The final soap products will have a strong scent after the soap cures and the bars will have a purple shade of discoloration.
