Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
20 Cavity Gummy Bears Soap and Candle Mold (flexiblemolds.com)
Stirring Spoon
Stove
Scale
Knife
Toothpicks
Pot (for double boiler)
Apothecary Jar
Hot Glue Gun with glue
5 Disposable bowls

Step 1:  Using the double boiler method, weigh and melt out 85 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.


Step 2:  Once the wax is melted, add 1 drop of yellow spectrum candle dye.  Next, add 7 grams of Orange Soda Pop Fragrance Oil.  Stir well to incorporate both the color and scent.

Step 3:  Now, get your gummy bear embed mold.  Carefully fill one row of the embed (for a total of 4 gummy bears).  Next, take the remaining wax and pour it into one of the disposable bowls.  Allow to set up at room temp and slice into chunks. 

Step 4:  Again, weigh and melt out 85 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.  This time when the wax is melted, add 1 drop of orange spectrum candle dye and 7 grams of Orange Soda Pop.  Stir well to incorporate. 


Step 5:  With the orange wax, fill the second row of 4 gummy bears.  Then, pour the remaining into a second disposable bowl.  Allow to set up at room temp and slice into chunks. 

Step 6:  Weigh out and melt 85 grams of Pillar of Bliss again.  Once the wax is melted, add 1 drop of red spectrum dye, and 7 grams of the fragrance oil.  Stir well.  Then, fill the third row of gummy bears.  Pour the remaining red wax into the third disposable bowl.  Allow to set up at room temp and slice into chunks. 

Step 7:  Weigh out and melt 85 grams of Pillar of Bliss.  This time when the wax is melted, add 1 drop of green spectrum dye and 7 grams of fragrance oil.  Stir well, then fill the fourth row of gummy bears.  Pour the remaining green wax into a disposable bowl.  Allow to set up at room temp and slice into chunks. 


Step 8:  For the final color, weigh out and melt 85 grams of Pillar of Bliss.  Once melted, add 1 drop of blue spectrum candle dye and 7 grams of Orange Soda Pop Fragrance.  Stir.  Fill the last row of gummy bears, and place the remaining blue wax in the final disposable bowl.  Allow to set up at room temp and slice into chunks. 

Step 9:  Now, weigh out and melt 500 grams of Joy wax using the double boiler method. 

Step 10:  While the wax is melting, place the gummy bear mold in the freezer to set faster. 


Step 11:  Using a hot glue gun, secure the bottom tabs of (2) CD 12 wicks to your jar.  Make sure your wicks are centered.

Step 12:  Once the colored wax is ready, remove the gummy bear mold from the freezer.  Then, carefully remove the chucks and place them into the candle jar, varying the colors sporadically.  When you are finished, straighten your wicks. 

Step 13:  Once the Joy wax is melted remove it from the heat source and add 40 grams of Orange Soda Pop Fragrance.  Stir well.  Set aside. 

Step 14:  Remove the gummy bears from the mold. 

Step 15:  When the joy wax has cooled slightly, slowing pour it over the colored chunks in your jar.  Stop the pour where the jar starts to change shape.  Straighten your wicks again if necessary.

Step 16:  Once your candle has cooled and is starting to set up, begin placing the gummy bears into the top portion of the candle.  You will want to gently push each gummy bear down slightly into the wax to secure it in place.   Then, allow your candle to fully set up. 

Your Gummy Bear candle is now ready.  Simply trim your wick, light, and enjoy!
