If you use a pan, then we would recommend that you line your pan with wax paper to make it easier to remove.

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company

We at Natures Garden have found a wonderful soap and candle creator that we would like to share with you! This creator’s name is Cory and she makes gorgeous cold process soaps, adorable candles, and even more fun recipes! Not only does Cory share some fantastic homemade recipes on her YouTube channel, but she has her very own candle and soap making business! The Sunshine Soap and Candle Company website is full of high-quality products that are unique and beautiful! If you are interested in learning even more about Cory and her candle and soap business, then check out more information below!

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: What is the Company's Mission?Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: What is Sunshine Soap and Candle Company?

Cory shared with us that the Sunshine Soap and Candle Company had come to be 2014.

Further, she has expressed the following as the core beliefs behind this company. “I have a passion for creating beautiful, usable products. I have always been drawn to more natural products, but also really wanted them to look beautiful as well as perform very well. I have always wanted people to smile, feel happy and a bit pampered when
they use my handmade products. The name of my company really epitomizes my idea of happiness. As a native Californian, I am a lover of the beach and the sun. These things make me happy and are reflected in my logo to represent the feelings I wanted people to have when using my products. Today, we carry an array of products you can feel good about like body butters, lotions, night cream, soap, candles and more.”

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: How Did This Business Start?

Today Sunshine Soap and Candle Company sells all kinds of products! This includes homemade candles and soap made from scratch. While this company has lots of wonderfully created recipes now, this endeavor began with Cory’s love for candles and an interest in making them at home!

According to Cory herself, ” A lot of people may not know that that Sunshine Soap and Candle Company started out in 2001 as a candle company only. I was a new college grad and newly married. I was working full time at a local insurance company and needed some
creative outlets. I was really into burning candles and thought I could make them.
That is when I started getting into the art of making candles. Back then, there was
no YouTube, so I did all my research and studying from books and hands on trial
and error. I became obsessed with making the perfect burning candle! Once I got
it down “Twilight Inspirations” was born and I started selling my candle creations.
I LOVED creating products from scratch and customizing items.”

Of course, this interest in candle making has grown over time and has led to even more skill for the craft through experience and experimentation. Plus, we all know that trying out a new craft is fun and can lead to another beloved hobby. In the case of Cory’s company, trying something new led to expanding her company to add even more lovely products!

Cory has shared that, “Over the years my candle making style evolved with changing styles and times. Fast forward to 2013 and three kids later! I became fascinated with soap
making after attending several local markets. I decided to give it a try. As soon as
I tried it, I knew I needed to expand my product line to include soaps. I loved it so
much I couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before! I immersed myself in research and
studying until I came up with soap I could actually feel great about selling.”

Just like with candle making, there is some equipment that you are going to need to get started. First, you will need a pouring pot to melt your wax. You will also need a pot filled with a few inches of water and a stove top. Your pouring pot will then be placed into the pot of warm water. Also, you will need a thermometer because you will need to add the fragrance oil at a certain temperature and you need to make sure the wax isn’t too hot when you pour.

Also, you will need to make sure you have a least have your basic supplies, which are candle wax, a scented oil, and packaging supplies. While there are many choices and options for customizing your wax melts, these two key ingredients are all you need to create your scented wax tarts. Also, you need to make sure that you have a plan for packaging your wax melts. There are many options, like clamshells, molds, and much more, and you just need one method to ensure that you are able to store your finished wax melts for later use.

There are many different types of waxes available from Natures Garden. We recommend using a pillar wax for your melts if you are putting them into a mold. However, there are still quite a few that are great when it comes to making a wax melt using a container wax. Choosing the type of wax is very important to the quality of your scented wax melts. So, you may want to learn a bit about your options before choosing a wax.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Beeswax Wax MeltsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Beeswax Wax Melts

Beeswax is a great choice for making wax tarts. It is perfect for creating hard wax tarts that are easy to package and use. You can either scent this wax on its own or add about 5-10% to a paraffin wax. Adding beeswax to paraffin wax will increase the integrity of the wax melt, which will make it easy to package and then use later. Also, adding some beeswax to your recipe will improve the color and your burn time of your wax tart.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Wow Wax Wax TartsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Wow Wax Wax Tarts

Speaking of paraffin wax, WOW Wax is a paraffin blend that is soft, creamy and has an excellent scent throw. While you may want to use this wax to make wax tarts, it could be difficult to make tarts. When you go to remove a wax melt from your clamshell or mold, the wax is likely to stick the container. This will ruin the shape and lead to a mess. So, this is when the beeswax comes in handy! Adding a portion of stearic acid or beeswax will make the wax harder and easier to use for making wax tarts. Alternatively, you could package your soft wax melts into portion cups. This will make it easier to transfer the wax to the warmer and cut down on some of that mess.

While you can use soy wax to create your homemade wax melts, a softer wax like soy wax may be harder to remove from a mold or clamshell container. Similarly, Joy Wax is a candle wax that blends soy with other ingredients to enhance the quality. So, Joy Wax will be a bit soft, as well. However, there are ways that you can effectively use this wax. Again, you could use individually portioned containers and just squeeze the wax into your warmer. Also, you can use Stearic Acid to harden your wax tarts.

Also, we have done a few other recipes, like the Pumpkin Delight Chamshell Tarts and the Candy Corn Clamshell Tarts Recipe, with this candle wax.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: How do I Scent Wax Tarts?

Scented oils are an important part of creating your own wax tarts. Your fragrance oil warmers won’t be able to do much without a great scent. Plus, you need to make sure that your scented oil is added correctly or it may not mix properly with the candle wax. So, you need to be able to add your fragrance oils at the right temperatures.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Portion CupsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Portion Cups

Another good option for wax melts is portion cups. These are especially useful for soft waxes, like container waxes. Many candle makers choose to use the same candle wax in their tarts that they use in their container candles. This way they do not have to purchase two different types of candle wax.  When using portion cups there will be less struggle trying to get the wax out of the container. Just squeeze the container and pop the wax into your wax warmer and don’t worry about a mess. This could also be a good container for transporting wax embeds of various shapes. For example, a few retro flower wax tarts could fit in a container for storage.

Candle Making TerminologyCandle Making Terminology

We at Natures Garden know that there is a lot of candle making terminology and techniques that you need to know to make great homemade candles. So, we are going to answer some common candle making questions and problems to make your experience more fun. So, set aside your candle making equipment and let’s figure out how to make gorgeous scented candles!

Candle Making Terminology: Types of Candles

Candle Making Terminology: What is a Pillar Candle?Candle Making Terminology: What is a Pillar Candle?

Pillar candles are free-standing candles that don’t require a container. These often use a harder type of candle wax that is made for creating pillar candles, like Pillar of Bliss Wax or Palm Pillar Wax.

Candle Making Terminology: What is a Votive Candle?Candle Making Terminology: What is a Votive Candle?

Votive Candles are a smaller kind of candle. The average size is 1.5 ounces and they are about two inches tall and one and a half inches wide. These are often made with a Votive Mold.

Tea Lights are very small candles that are about an inch and a half wide and a half inch tall. They can be made in Tea Light Cups .

Candle Making Terminology: Candle Fragrances

Candle Making Terminology: What Does Fragrance Load Mean?

In candle making, fragrance load refers to the amount of fragrance oil that you are using in your homemade candle recipe.

Candle Making Terminology: My Candle Wax Will Hold a 10% Fragrance Load. How Do I Know How Much to Add?Candle Making Terminology: My Candle Wax Will Hold a 10% Fragrance Load. How Do I Know How Much to Add?

All you need to do is some simple math that we will walk you through! First, weigh the amount of candle wax you are using. Then, multiply this amount by 0.10, which is 10% to determine the amount of fragrance oil that you can use.

  • Formula: Candle Wax Weight X Fragrance Percentage = Amount of Fragrance That Can Be Added
  • Example: 20 (ounces of candle wax) X 0.10 = 2 ounces of fragrance oil So, since your candle wax is in ounces, the fragrance amount that can be added to the candle wax will also be in ounces.
Candle Making Terminology: What Does Scent Throw Mean?

The scent throw is the strength of fragrance that the candle releases into the air. Cold throw is the strength of scent when the candle is not lit yet. Hot throw is the strength of the scent throw when the candle is lit and burning.

Candle Making Terminology: Candle Waxes

Candle Making Terminology: What Kind of Wax Should I Use for Candles?Candle Making Terminology: What Kind of Wax Should I Use for Candles?

Choosing a candle wax type depends on the type of candle that you want to create. So, the isn’t a universal answer to the question, “Which is the best wax for candle making?” For example, pillar candles would require a pillar wax, which includes Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax and Palm Pillar Wax. The Pillar of Bliss Wax is a blend of soy and paraffin that has a great scent throw and a creamy finish. The Palm Pillar Wax has a crystal finish, has a wonderful scent throw, and comes form sustainable sources.

However, container candles would be best with a container wax, which includes soy wax, Joy wax, WOW Wax, palm wax, and gel wax. Soy wax would make a great, inexpensive addition to your natural candle making supplies. It has a clean burn and and excellent cold throw, but it can be tricky to get a good hot throw from certain fragrances. Wow wax is mostly paraffin and has an amazing hot throw, but has a less clean burn. Joy wax is a perfect blend of paraffin wax and soy wax, as well as veggie wax and proprietary ingredients, that provides a cleaner burn with an amazing scent throw. Gel wax has a neat translucent look, but is not compatible with all fragrance oils. Our palm wax comes from sustainable sources that aren’t harming the rainforest, has a beautiful crystal appearance, and a great scent throw.

Candle Making Terminology: What is Granulated Wax?Candle Making Terminology: What is Granulated Wax?

Simply, this is wax that is grainy and looks kind of like sand. This wax can be scented and colored without melting, so it is a easy and fun way to create candles with kids. We have made candle recipes like the Bacon Candle Recipe and the Hydrangea Candle Recipe with this type of wax.

Candle Making Terminology: Crucial Temperatures

Candle Making Terminology: Do I Need to Worry About the Temperatures When Making Candles?Candle Making Terminology: Do I Need to Worry About the Temperatures When Making Candles?

Yes, this is very important for creating quality homemade candles! There are a few key moments where you will need a thermometer to be aware of the temperature of your wax. First, you need to make sure that your fragrance oil isn’t added at a temperature that is too hot. If your fragrance is added at a temperature that is too high, then some of the notes may burn off and leave you with a less satisfying scent. Another issue is pouring your wax into the container too soon. If you pour at a temperature that is too cool, you could have improper adhesion, wet spots, sinking, and other issues. So, be sure to check your wax’s description to see the temperature that is should be poured.

Candle Making Terminology: What does sinkhole mean?

Sinkhole is a hole or cavity that appears on your candle as it is setting up. Often, this occurs when the candle wax is poured at too low of a temperature.

Candle Making Terminology: Can You Cool a Candle in the Fridge?Candle Making Terminology: Can You Cool a Candle in the Fridge?

No, candles should cool as slowly as possible on their own. If you place a candle in the fridge to cool, they may not adhere to the glass properly, which can lead to wet spots.

Candle Making Terminology: Candle Wicks

Candle Making Terminology: Choosing the Right WickCandle Making Terminology: Choosing the Right Wick

The size of your wick depends on the diameter of your container. You can see the radius for each wick under it’s description. However, you will still need to test because there are many variable between wax type and fragrance oil. A fragrance with a high flash point and high specific gravity, like vanilla, requires a hotter burn. But, low flash point scents with low specific gravity, like citrus, need a smaller wick. Also, you may hear the terms “wick up’ and “wick down” when talking about find the right wick size. Wick down means that you should use a wick that is smaller than what you have been using and wick up means that you should use a wick that is larger than what you use for candles this size.

Candle Making Terminology: How Do You Stop a Candle From Tunneling?Candle Making Terminology: How Do You Stop a Candle From Tunneling?

If you don’t know, tunneling is often the answer for the question, “Why isn’t my candle wax not burning evenly all of the way down?” Tunneling can happen for a few reasons, which includes issues with wick size. If your wick is too small for the diameter of your candle, then it will not burn all the way to the outside edge. So, you may either need a larger wick, multiple wicks, or a different type of wick that will burn hotter.

However, there are a few other issues that could cause tunneling. If you think your wick is the right size, then look into some of these potential issues, First, you may have a clogged wick, which can cause uneven burning. Also, it could be that you didn’t do a memory burn for the candle’s first use to ensure a proper burn. Finally, you may need to use a wax that has a lower melt point that is easier for you chosen wick to handle.

Candle Making Terminology: Why Are My Candle Jars Black After I Burn My Candles?

Often, this occurs when you wick is too big for your jar or your wick is too long. If your wick is trimmed down to 1/4 inch, then the length is fine. You can check the suggested radius for your wick to see if you need to get a smaller size. Also, using too much fragrance can clog the wick and cause more soot than normal.

Candle Making Terminology: Do Candle Wicks Contain Lead?

No, candle wicks in the Unites States, like ours, do not contain lead. In fact, lead core wicks were banned in the US in 2003.

Candle Making Terminology: Proper Burning

Candle Making Terminology: What is a Memory Burn?

This is the first burn of your candles and is the most important. This burn will set the boundary of your melt pool and will determines whether the edges of your candle will be reached. A guide is to burn an hour for every inch your candle is wide to ensure that it will burn properly as it is used in future burns. Also, you will want to make sure that you wick isn’t too low and isn’t longer than 1/4 inch high.

Candle Making Terminology: What Does Melt Pool Mean?

Melt Pool is the candle wax that has melted on the top of the candle. Ideally, you will want this to be all the way across the top of your candle to ensure an even burn.

Candle Making Terminology: What Does Mushrooming Mean in Candle Making?

When I notice black clumps on top of my wick, I know that it is mushrooming. While all wick produce this carbon as they burn, some are worse than others. Also, factors that clog the wick can increase the mushrooming effect. The CD wicks produce the least amount of mushrooming, but there isn’t a way to completely stop it due to it being a product of burning the wick.

Candle Making Terminology: Candle Coloring

Candle Making Terminology: How Do You Color a Candle?Candle Making Terminology: How Do You Color a Candle?

There are a few different candle colorant options for your home made candles. First, you can use our Liquid Candle Dyes, which are extremely concentrated and will last a long time. Also, you can use a color block, which is made with paraffin, vegan, and can color up to 15 pounds of wax. Lastly, you can use a bit of powder dye. Just be careful not to use too much because it can clog your wick.

Candle Making Terminology: Can You Use Crayons to Make Candles?

We do not suggest using crayons to color candles. They don’t burn properly and are likely to clog your wick.

Candle Making Terminology: What is a UV Light Inhibitor?Candle Making Terminology: What is a UV Light Inhibitor?

Since UV light from the sun can bleach the color out of candles, the UV light inhibitor is used to protect the color of your candles. This candle ingredient is most useful for preventing fading in burgundy, blue, and violet candle colors due to direct sunlight.

Candle Making Terminology: How Do I Color My Candles White?

While titanium dioxide can be used to create white pillar candles, you don’t want to add it straight to your container candles as it can clog your wick.

Candle Making Terminology: Candle Apearance

Candle Making Terminology: How Do I Get Rid of Wet Spots on My Candles?

Wet spots are air pockets that are formed when your candle didn’t adhere properly to your candle jar. You can take a few steps to prevent this if you are having problems. First, try warming your candle jars to give you wax more time to cool. Also, you can try pouring your wax at a hotter temperature. Another good tip is to make sure the room your are making your candles in a room that is warm.

Candle Making Terminology: What Is Frosting In Candle Making?

Frosting is the white stuff that appears on waxes that contain soy wax. You can use a heat gun or blow dryer to re-melt the surface and give it a smoother finish. While you can lessen the effect of frosting, you can’t eliminate it completely.

Candle Making Terminology: What Are Jump Lines?

These are the line that you can see on the side of either a container candle or a pillar candle.

Candle Making Terminology: Progression of Candles

As you can tell, there is a lot that goes into candle making. But, it is a process that has been developed overtime and takes time to master.

To top off our cakes we whipped up the Joy Wax for the whipped cream and topped the confection off with a cute little heart embed that says “Love” on it! Sprinkles are for winners, so go ahead and add some sprinkles to the top of these winning Valentine’s Day Cupcakes! We chose Cinnamon Yum Yums for the fragrance oil that will scent the air with spicy clove, cinnamon and vanilla.  This fragrance oil is a valentine’s day best seller!

Types of Candle WaxTypes of Candle Wax

Often, here at Natures Garden, we are asked about the different types of candle wax that we carry.  For beginners, it can be difficult to know which wax to use and when to use.  From pillar wax to container wax or granulated waxes or wax in flake form, below, we will talk about all of the waxes that Natures Garden carries, what to use them for, and what for they come in.

Types of Candle Wax: Container Wax vs. Pillar Wax

Before we begin looking closely at the different types of candle waxes, we would like to talk about the difference between a container wax and pillar wax.  You might wonder why you would even need two types of wax.  Well, there are differences in the two types.

Container Wax vs. Pillar Wax: Container Wax

So, first we will talk about a container wax.  Container waxes are created specifically for container candles.  When creating a container candle, it is important that your candle wax adheres to your container.  If the wax doesn’t adhere properly to your jar, your candles will end up looking like they have wet spots.  While, yes, this can still happen with containers, it inevitable when you use pillar wax in a container.  This is why you will find container waxes to be softer.  Container waxes can come in many forms.  It can come in flake form, granulated form, and even slab form.  Natures Garden carries the following container waxes; Joy Wax, WOW Wax, palm wax, several types of soy wax, and gel wax.

Container Wax vs. Pillar Wax: Pillar Wax

Next, let’s take a look at pillar wax.  Pillar waxes are created to be a harder wax. This is important because a harder wax will release more easily from your candle molds.  This makes pillar waxes perfect to use when creating both pillar candles as well as wax melts.

Types of Candle Wax: Soy Waxes

First, we will talk about the three soy waxes that Natures Garden carries.  We carry three types of soy wax.  Soy wax will give you a clean burn.  All three soy waxes are Golden Brand waxes.  They all come in flake form.  They should all be used only for container candles as the setup wax will be too soft for tarts.  However, if you really want to use them for wax melts, you can add stearic acid to help harden the wax a bit.  Below, we will take a closer look at all three of these waxes.

Soy Waxes: NG 100% Soy Wax

We will start by looking at NG 100% Soy Wax.  This wax is a pure soy wax that does not contain any additives and is kosher.  It is also known as Golden Brands 415 Soy Wax.  As I said before, it should be used for container candles.  It will be too soft to use for your pillar candles.  Next, we will talk about a few things you should know about straight soy wax.  Soy wax can have a rougher finish and issues with frosting.  This is just the nature of soy wax.  There can also be more of an issue with glass adhesion.  So, when working with soy wax, it is very important to warm your jars before pouring the candle wax into them.  In addition, it can be harder to get a really strong scent throw with soy wax, when compared with paraffin.  Since there can be some issues with frosting, scent throw, and glass adhesion with a straight soy wax, Golden Brands has created a couple of other natural soy waxes to help with some of these issues.

Soy Waxes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 444

So, the first natural and kosher soy wax is the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444.  This soy candle wax has soy based additives to help with some the issues that you can have with the 415 soy wax.  This particular container candle wax has a higher melt point.  Since it has a higher melt point, the candle wax will retain a higher fragrance load.  The melt point of the 444 soy wax has a melt point of 119-125 degrees Fahrenheit.

Soy Waxes: Golden Brands Soy Wax 464

Now, we will take a closer look at the Golden Brands Soy Wax 464.  So, this soy wax, like the 415 and 444, is still natural and kosher.  However, this wax contains soy based additives that will help with glass adhesion.  The reason this soy wax will adhere better to your jars is because the melt point is lower.  The melt point of the 464 candle wax is 113-119 degrees Fahrenheit.

Types of Candle Wax: WOW Wax

Next, we will talk about Natures Garden’s WOW Wax.  This candle wax comes in a slab form.  However, it is very soft.  In fact, it is so soft that you can cut it with a butter knife.  This candle wax is a single pour wax comprised of mainly paraffin wax.  Paraffin wax will give you the best scent throw compared to other candle waxes along with a nice creamy finish without the frosting that you can get from soy wax.  It is used for container candles.

Types of Candle Wax: Joy Wax

Our next container wax is Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Joy wax is a combination of  soy wax, food grade paraffin, vegetable waxes and other proprietary ingredients.  It, like our WOW Wax, comes in slab form.  It, too, is soft enough to cut with a butter knife.  This is my personal go to wax for container candles.  Since it is made of both paraffin and soy, I think of it as the best of both worlds.  It has soy in the wax, which will give you a cleaner burn compared to a straight paraffin.  In addition, it has paraffin in the wax.  This will give you a nice creamy finish along with a better scent throw when compared to a straight soy wax.

Types of Candle Wax: Gel Wax

Now, we will take a look at our next container wax, gel wax.  Natures Garden carries Penreco’s patented medium density gel wax.  Gel wax sets up to look, well, like gel.  Gel wax is a transparent, rubbery compound composed of mineral oil and polymer resin. So, it really does create a truly unique candle.  You can use embeds and micas with this candle wax.

However, there are a few differences when compared to other container waxes.  First, the flash point of the fragrance oil being used needs to be at least 170 degrees Fahrenheit.  In addition, you need to check for solubility.  Basically, you want to make sure that the oil will mix properly with the gel wax.  You will want to test the fragrance oil in mineral oil.  You can easily do this by mixing the your fragrance oil with mineral oil.  So, first, ensure that the flash point is 170 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.  If it is, it may be able to be used in gel wax.  However, you need to test it in mineral oil.  Simply mix the fragrance oil 50/50 with mineral oil.  Once you mix the fragrance oil, check for any separation, cloudiness, or striations.  If none of these are present, it should do well in gel wax.

Types of Candle Wax: Palm Wax

Next, we will look at palm wax.  Natures Garden’s palm wax come only from sustainable sources. We are pleased to affirm that the palm oil used by our company originates from reputable plantation companies who are members of the Malaysian Palm Oil Association (MPOA). MPOA, together with many other stakeholders, has pioneered the establishment of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).  You can read more about this in the description of the palm waxes on our website.  Palm wax is another unique wax that has a crystal-like finish to it.  It is a beautiful wax.  We carry it in both a pillar wax form and a container wax.  Both types of wax are a granulated wax so, it is very easy to work with.

Palm Wax: Container Wax

First, our palm container wax.  This wax can be used for container candles.  So, if you are using a jar, you want to use this wax.  Once your candle sets up, it will have a crystaline finish.  It truly creates a stunning natural container candle.

 

Palm Wax: Pillar Wax

Finally, we have our palm pillar wax.  You can use palm pillar wax when creating homemade pillar candles.  The pillar wax will easily release from your candle mold.  The palm pillar wax can also be used to create natural wax melts.  They will also have the same crystal effect as the container wax.  This is my go to wax for both pillar candles and wax melts due to the crystals that appear on the finished candles and melts.

Types of Candle Wax: Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

Let’s look at Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss candle wax.  This pillar wax is a blend, containing more than 50% soy wax.  However, it also includes paraffin.  So, this wax, like the Joy Wax, will have a smooth and creamy finish.  You can use Pillar of Bliss candle wax for both your pillars and wax melts.  It has excellent cold and hot throw.  It also comes in a granulated form.  In addition to using it for pillar candles, it can be used to create granulated container candles.  These types of candles are popular for projects with children and adults alike.  You can even create granulated candles without melting your candle wax.

Types of Candle Wax: Beeswax

Now, we will talk about beeswax.  Beeswax comes from the bee hive and is filtered.  In addition, our beeswax is naturally bleached by the sunlight.  It can be used to create homemade candles.  This wax can even be used to make a rolled beeswax candle.  We have even used it in candles like our zebra print candle to create the zebra stripes in a soy wax candle.  It comes in a pellet form.  You can also use white beeswax in cosmetic recipes as well.
