Soy Candle RecipesSoy Candle Recipes

We at Natures Garden created this blog to discuss the differences between our three soy waxes and share our best Soy Candle Recipes.

So, let’s talk a little bit about soy wax!  Soy wax is a natural vegetable wax that is created from soybeans. Plus, this wax is environmentally friendly and a renewable resource. So, we can all feel good creating  our scented candle masterpieces. Plus, this wax really isn’t just good for the environment, it can be used to make some great scented candles! They burn slower and cleaner than a candle made from paraffin wax. So, there is less soot left over as the candle burns and you even get a longer lasting candle! Plus, the wax is one of the most enjoyable waxes to work with! It comes in an easy to use form that makes weighing out and clean up super easy! It comes in flakes form instead of a slab.

Soy Candle Recipes Different Types of Soy Waxes

We at Natures Garden have three types of soy wax available, which are Golden Foods 444, Golden Foods 464, and NG 100% Soy Wax (Golden Foods 415).While all of these candle making options are made up of natural soy wax, there are a few slight differences between the types of soy wax that we carry. Some have varying melting points or have a different allowance for scent load, but each has a different set of characteristics that make it unique. A wax may have better qualities in one area, while another type has better qualities in a different area. So, choosing the right wax for you is all about figuring out what you value in a soy candle and which wax suits your needs best. So, let’s discover your favorite type of soy candle wax!

Soy Candle Recipes Terms for Soy Wax

As we discuss the benefits and drawbacks to our different types of soy waxes you can choose from, there may be some specific terms that you will want to know. It is important to know what we mean when we refer to these things to get a better idea of what you will be getting into.

First, we have the possibility of candle frost. This occurs in soy wax where the appearance on parts of the jar look lighter or even white. While this doesn’t impact the quality of the burn or scent, it may impact the appearance. Additionally, there is the possibility for wet spots to occur in your candles. This is when the wax cools too quickly in the jar and the wax doesn’t adhere to the jar in some places. This will look like some air or water became trapped between the wax and the container. Further, tunneling could be a problem where the wick is too small for the jar and isn’t able to heat the wax at edges of the jar.

Soy Candle Recipes NG 100% Soy WaxSoy Candle Recipes NG 100% Soy Wax

First of all, we have the NG 100% Soy Wax, which is known as Golden Foods 415 Soy Wax. This original soy wax is 100% pure soy without a single additive. This 100% soy wax is all natural and all regular soy. While this wax is just plain soy, it has a few interesting qualities.

Firstly, the melting point of this type of soy wax is 120-125 degrees Fahrenheit. This fairly high melt point provides some beneficial properties for your homemade candles. This higher melt point allows the wax to carry a higher fragrance load of up to 12% of fragrance oil per pound of wax.Thus, you can make a stronger scented candle than the typical 10% allowance for candles. Further, the higher melt point of this wax will help those that may be shipping candles in hotter temperatures. Also, this pure soy wax can be blended with other waxes, such as paraffin, beeswax, or any microcrystalline waxes.

Soy Candle Recipes Leopard Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Leopard Candle Recipe

This candle making idea takes advantage of the agreeability of soy wax with waxes like beeswax. Since beeswax is a harder wax that has a higher melt point than this pure soy wax, it was perfect for creating designs. These embedded candles use the beeswax to create the leopard print pattern. After, the regular soy wax was added to the jar to fill up the candle and hold all of the leopard print spots in place.

Next, we have a candle recipe that uses soy wax to create the grass effect on top. You simply beat the candle batter until you achieve a thicker consistency. Then, you can add it to your homemade candle. This will create the effect of more realistic grass with dirt underneath. Perfect for the football field inspired candle!

Soy Candle Recipes Citronella Soy Wax Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Citronella Soy Wax Candle Recipe

Another great way to use this type of soy wax is a regular type of candle. Our Citronella Soy Wax Candle Recipe has a typical candle appearance with an unforgettably strong scent. This fragrance oil has a crazy strong aroma that creates a perfect citronella candle for the outdoors. Say goodbye to bugs and hello to your perfect soy wax scented candle!

Soy Candle Recipes Massage Candle Recipe Soy Candle Recipes Massage Candle Recipe

One great thing about using pure soy wax is that it is considered a natural moisturizing agent! So, adding this wax to a massage candle is perfect! The natural soy wax works together with the butters and oils to soften your skin during a relaxing massage. It is a perfect recipe for candles for massage therapy.

Soy Candle Recipes Green Beer Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Green Beer Candle Recipe

Also, you can use the 415 soy wax in this fun beer themed candle! This recipe utilizes the lower pouring temperature of the wax, which creates a thicker pour. This is helpful for making some kinds of toppings, like the foam on our beer candle! We can mix the wax as it cools to create a fluffy consistency that looks just like the foam on top of a pint of beer.

 

Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 444Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 444

Also, we have a second soy wax alternative that is available for use in candle making. This next wax is Golden Foods Soy Wax 444, which is regular, natural soy wax with an additive. This additional ingredient is a soy based additive that is mixed to the soy wax. While this wax has the same type of wax, this additive helps to solve some of the issue you may come across when using the the 415 soy wax. So, we will go over some of the benefits to using this alternative type of soy wax.

First, this wax will increase your pour temperature during candle making. An issue that comes up with the pure soy wax is pouring too hot can cause issues with appearance. Meaning that the problem of the getting the slushy state pouring with the natural soy wax at the suggested 110 degrees Fahrenheit, can be solved with this wax. Thanks to this additive, you are able to pour this 444 soy wax at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that your wax will still be in a fluid form when you pour and the candle will have a smoother appearance. This difference is partially due to the fact that this type of soy wax will reduce frosting, so you don’t have to worry about cooling the wax to a slushie state to reduce this effect.

Also, the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 provides you with a higher melt point than the other alternative soy wax. This wax has a melt point between 120- 125 degrees Fahrenheit, which will provide you with a few benefits. First, you will be able to raise the fragrance oil allowance in your candle to up to 12% of your scent per pound. So, you will be able to create a stronger scented candle. Second, your candles will be less likely to melt when the weather gets hotter. So, it will be safer to ship candles as they will be less likely to melt in hot temperatures.

Soy Candle Recipes Zebra Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Zebra Candle Recipe

Again, we are using the higher melting point of beeswax to help create a cute candle design! We only use the beeswax for the red portion, which will be used for the zebra stripes. This will help prevent the wax from melting after the rest of the candle is added to the jar. Meaning, you shouldn’t have smears or running colors that could have been caused by the, melting of the red wax.

Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 464Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 464

Another natural wax that you can use instead of the pure soy option is the Golden Brands Soy Wax 464. This wax is one of the two alternatives that we carry for candle makers. While this wax is similar to the other alternative wax as they both contain a soy based additive. This wax has some similarities and differences with these other waxes.

Just like with the 444 soy wax, this type of soy wax will have an increased pour temperature, which is at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the original soy wax has to be poured at a lower temperature, this wax will become a slushy consistency by the time you can pour. However, this wax alternative will pour at a temperature where the wax remains liquid. So, the candle will be smooth, like the 444 soy wax candles.

Additionally, this type of wax has been made to reduce the frosting that comes with soy wax. While this frosting isn’t harmful, it does impact the appearance of your candle.

The main difference between the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 and the Golden Foods Soy Wax 464 is the melting point. While the 444 soy wax has a higher melting point, like the original soy wax, the 464 soy wax is not the same. Instead, the 464 soy wax has a melt point of 115-120 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a few degrees lower than the other waxes. This means that you should be monitor the weather more careful to prevent the candles from getting too hot and melting. However, this lower melt point allows for a better glass adhesion in the finished candle!

While the maximum scent load for this wax is about 10-12%. We suggest that you have the fragrance oil at 10% of the wax to reduce the possibility of fragrance oil seepage.

Soy Candle Recipes Shimmer Gel Potpourri RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Shimmer Gel Potpourri Recipe

While candles are fun to create, it is always nice to try something new. Our sparkling potpourri gel uses this type of soy wax and rice bran oil to create a gel-like product that is perfect for a wax melt warmer.SImply squeeze some into the dish of a warmer and let the product do what it does best scent your home!

Since this recipe uses 464 soy wax, the wax adheres perfectly to the jar and has a very smooth consistency.

Soy Candle Recipes Advice for Making Soy Candles

There are some possible issues that apply to all soy wax candles, so some advice may be helpful. First, you may have issues with the scent throw of soy wax candles. While this is the nature of soy wax, there are a few things you can do to maximize your scent throw. You can try increasing your wick size, however be careful not to go too large or you can burn the fragrance oil off before it hits the air.  Also, make sure that you have added the maximum amount of fragrance. While each fragrance will be different, most will use 1.5 ounces of fragrance oil per pound. Second, you can reduce wet spots by heating the jar before pouring your wax. This will allow the wax to have time to better adhere. Finally, you can reduce frosting by heating the jar as it allows your wax to cool slower.

Fragrance Oils for Warmers Using Scents in Liquid Potpourri

One way to use fragrance oils in warmers if to create a liquid potpourri. This uses a fragrance oil and a carrier oil to create a liquid that is perfect for room scenting. While you may be tempted to simply add the fragrance oil of your choice to the warmer directly, this will not work out as you think. The concentration of our fragrance oils is high, so you need to combine our scents with carrier oils, such as coconut oil, to achieve the scent you will want. So, you would need to create a 50/50 mixture that is half a carrier oil and half a fragrance oil. Alternatively, you can dilute the fragrance oils with DPG, again doing a 50/50 mix. We have a few recipes available that will show you how to create scents for your warmer. If you are interested, then check out the Spicy Liquid Potpourri Recipe or the Vanilla Liquid Potpourri Recipe for more details.

Fragrance Oils for Warmers Using Scents in Wax

Another great way to incorporate fragrances into your warmers is to add them to wax. Not only does wax hold the scent well, but it is easy to create fun wax melts that look cute! For example, you can create the Cupcake Wax Tarts Recipe that makes the wax tart look just like a little cupcake! Alternatively, you can create a recipe like the Pumpkin Delight Clamshell Tarts Recipe that has layers of wax in a clamshell container.  Finally, you can use granulated wax, like in our Autumn Leaves Potpourri Recipe, to create a scoopable wax for your oil burner.

Fragrance Oils for Warmers Unique Recipes for Warmers

Plus, there are even more great ways to use fragrance oils for warmers. One such recipe is the Shimmering Gel Potpourri Recipe. This recipe uses both an oil and wax to create a gel that is perfect for carrying the fragrance oil. So, there are different kinds of ideas out for adding fragrances to warmers.
