Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free ChristmasOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free Christmas

Most of us in today’s world, have the idea that Christmas has to be picture perfect. We watch the movies on the Hallmark Channel and expect our Christmas to be just like on TV.

However, we don’t live our lives scripted. It’s always important to remember that the Christmas tree doesn’t have to look like Martha Stewart decorated it. Our Christmas cookies do not need to look like they came straight out of Bon Appetit magazine. Christmas is a beautiful time to simply spend with loved ones. Those will be the memories that your children can cherish and remember when they grow older. It’s not about how perfect the ornaments were hung on the tree. It’s about the memory you have of each ornament that you hang on those branches. It isn’t about how perfectly edged the icing was on the cookies. It’s about how awesome those cookies tasted no matter how much icing Junior glopped onto the snowman shaped cookie.

Enjoy your holidays! Take some shortcuts when it comes to having friends or family over. It’s okay to have something that’s not made from scratch! Homemade gifts don’t have to say you don’t have the funds to buy elaborate gifts. If you create things for certain people in mind, then you have given something to somebody that says, “I took my time and love to make you something I knew you would enjoy.” That type of Christmas is perfect in every way. Follow this link to read up on how to have a stress free Christmas before you start running in a million directions!

 

 

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle RecipeOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle Recipe

Our first recipe is our Candy Cane Candle Recipe. This is truly a fun candle to have on your tabletop during the Christmas season. This is a simple candle to create. We used our awesome Joy Wax. Joy Wax is a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is easy to work with, even if you’ve never made candles before. Our Joy Wax has a wonderful hot and cold throw. It has a nice creamy finish and sets up beautifully in your containers. The candy cane candle is layered in pink, red and white with a fluffy, whipped wax topping! Yes, you can create fluffy whipped toppings with this wax. To complete the “candy” theme of the candle, we placed two swirled candy embeds made from our Pillar of Bliss. Pillar of Bliss is also a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is perfect for creating embeds or wax melts. It hardens up nicely to allow for easy release from molds.

We have scented the candle in our Candy Cane fragrance oil. This scented oil is a yummy blend of peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, strawberries and vanilla. This fragrance is a must for any type of Christmas projects you have in mind!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Facial MaskOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Facial Mask

This  Candy Cane  Facial Mask recipe makes eight 4 oz jars which is the perfect amount to give to your girlfriends or to make for a Christmas party to hand out as party favors. This face mask has some wonderful skin therapy ingredients such as Kaolin Clay, Rose Clay, Beet Root and Hibiscus Flower Powder. We also used some Peppermint Essential Oil and Vanilla Powder for fragrance. It is a yummy smelling combination! Your skin will be glowing and refreshed after just one use! While we did layer it to have the look of a candy cane, the powders and clays will combine once you start using it, however, it will still smell divine. Just like a stick of peppermint candy!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath CookieOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath Cookie

You just have to have cookies at Christmas time! It’s a necessary thing. So how about some cookies at bath time? Our Christmas Bath Cookies look and smell yummy enough to eat, and are perfect to entice little ones to take a bath! These bath cookies are very similar to bath bombs. The fizz and bubble and will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling good! We have used cocoa butter, mango butter, kaolin clay powder, and baking soda to name just a few of the ingredients. Your skin is going to feel amazing after your bath! We chose our Christmas Cookies fragrance oil that smells exactly like a freshly baked, buttery Christmas Cookie! Of course, cookies need frosting, right? Our “frosting” is our whipped soap that we used some of our FUN Soap colorant. With some Christmas colored sprinkles to top it off, your bath cookies are complete!

I know one of my favorite things to have is a fire in my fireplace. Not just at Christmas time, but all winter long! Getting a fire started can be intimidating.

Create some of our Christmas Wreath Fire Starters and you will be happy you did. This recipe will make 11 cupcake size fire starters and the best thing about these? They are scented!

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, cold process soap, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, Soap making supplies, Uncategorized, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe

There is something about Autumn and the holidays that make you want to create a warm, cozy home. I suppose it is similar to hibernating. If you are going to spend most of your time indoors during the cold weather, then making your home a snug place to come home to is your hibernation time. There is nothing better than walking in the front door of your home to warmth, family, pets and good smells to make you feel safe and happy to be there! Nature’s Garden’s Pecan Pie Wax Melts recipe will definitely give your home a wonderful, inviting smell of warm butter, caramel, brown sugar, and toasted pecans.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan PiePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan Pie

While any information on how the Pecan Pie came to be is a little sketchy, it is for certain, that it started out as one type of dessert similar to the ingredients that were used and then evolved into a true Southern dessert using staple ingredients that were native to the area. The basis of this pie is sugar, butter, syrup (pre-Karo syrup days, it was cane syrup) and eggs. This is the basic recipe for Chess Pie, which has its own origin. However, the addition of pecans and whoever thought of adding it is a mystery that will never be solved, but let’s thank whoever felt like spicing up their dessert! A personal favorite addition to my pecan pie? Chocolate drizzle and a dollop of ice vanilla ice cream! Mmmmm!  However, our inspiration for this project came from these pecan mini pies from Sugar Hero.  While, of course, our wax melts aren’t edible, her mini pecan pies are simply AMAZING! So, if this wax tart recipe, and sent leaves your belly grumbling, give her recipe a try.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Let’s Talk Ingredients

So before we move onto making our Pecan Pie Wax Melts, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the ingredients we are using.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

So anytime a recipe calls for a wax melt,  we will always use our Pillar of Bliss. The reason for that is that Pillar of Bliss is the best wax when we are using a mold for our creation. This wax has an easy release from the mold since it hardens up nicely. Most waxes, such as soy, are often too soft and can often difficult to get out of the mold. Pillar of Bliss is a granulated blend of soy wax (more than 50 percent) and paraffin wax. This wax has excellent scent retention as well as amazing hot and cold throws. 

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle Wax

The next wax we will be using is our Joy Wax Candle Wax. This wax is also a blend of soy, veggie waxes, and paraffin. Joy Wax also has wonderful scent retention along with awesome hot and cold throws. Any time you would like to add a fluffy topping to any of your candle creations, this wax is perfect for that! As you will see, it can be whipped up into a puffy cloud of fluff! It’s perfect for use in dessert candles or wax melts!

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Granny’s Pecan Pie Fragrance Oil

This is one of my favorite home scents to use for the fall (or anytime actually). It has a warm aroma of brown sugar, vanilla, butter, and roasted pecans. This fragrance oil does amazing in all candle waxes that were tested. It also did very well when we tested in Cold Process soap. While it did discolor to a chocolate brown (which I think is a perfect color for a soap when using this fragrance) there was no acceleration, or ricing! It did, however, separate, yet it reabsorbed with no problem. I am sure that this would be a perfect fragrance to add to your fall/holiday line of products.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Ingredients Available at Nature’s Garden

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You will Need

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your wax melts, it is always good to prepare your work area. Clean your work area and also your equipment that you will be using. Make sure that you have all your ingredients and utensils handy and within reaching distance. These few steps will help ensure that your creating will run smoothly and uninterrupted. If this is your first time working with candle wax, you might like to familiarize yourself with how to make candles. Follow this link to get a quick rundown on melting and pour temperatures and also proper temperatures for adding fragrances.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing Your Double Boiler

The first step before starting your wax melts will be to set up your double boiler. If you know the process of setting up a double boiler, you can move on to the next step of prepping your wax. However, if you are unfamiliar with a double boiler, we can explain to you how it is done in a few easy steps.

First, you will need a large pot or even an old cake pan for the outside part of your double boiler. Place this onto your heating element. This can be your stove top or even a hot plate. Next, pour about 3 inches of water into the pot or pan. Then, you will need a smaller pot or a pouring pot, for the inside part of the double boiler. As a side note, it isn’t really necessary, however, it is so much easier pouring melted wax into the molds if your pot has a pouring spout. That is why a pouring pitcher is ideal as the inner part of your double boiler. Next, turn your burner on to medium heat to allow the water to warm up as you are preparing your wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the BasesPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the Bases

First, you will be preparing the bases of the wax melts. For this step, you will need the Pillar of Bliss Wax. On your scale, set your pouring pot and tare out the weight. Weigh out 325 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oilPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oil

Next, place the pouring pot into the larger part of your double boiler and allow the wax to melt to the proper temperature, stirring occasionally. While you are waiting for the wax to melt, you can weigh out the fragrance oil. To a small dish, weigh out 32 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. You can set this aside for the moment. Once your wax has reached the correct melting point, remove the pouring pot from the heat and you can now add in the liquid candle dyes. We are going for a pecan color so you will add in 3 drops of yellow liquid candle dye and 4 drops of brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to incorporate the color thoroughly.

Once the wax has reached the correct temperature for the fragrance oil, you can now add that, once again stirring well to completely disperse the oil throughout the wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the Wax

Now that your melted wax is colored and scented, you will be pouring the wax into their molds. With the silicone mini muffin mold in front of you, carefully fill each mold to the top with the melted wax. Once these are all filled, allow them to set up completely until they have cooled. Pop them out of the muffin cavities and place them on a piece of wax paper. You can set these aside for the moment.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan EmbedsPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan Embeds

Next, you will be preparing the Pecan Embeds. For the embeds, you will notice we are using a mold from Flexible Molds. This company offers many different types of molds to fit any of your soap or candle making needs. They are very durable molds, that will last you a long time! So, to your pouring pot weigh out 50 grams of Pillar of Bliss candle Wax and place it into the larger pot of heated water. Melt this wax down to the proper temperature. While you are waiting for this wax to melt, weigh out 5 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil into a small bowl and set this aside for the moment.

For the color of the pecans, you will only need a small amount. So, using a toothpick to add the color, swirl in a small amount of yellow and brown liquid candle dye. The pecans do not have to be the same exact shade as the bases of the wax melts. It is okay if they are a bit lighter. Stir the liquid color until it is fully blended. Now you can add in the pre-weighed fragrance oil and stir this well also. Next, you will pour the melted wax into the pecan embeds mold carefully. Once again, you will let these set up until cool before removing them from the mold. Since the mold has only 6 cavities, you will need to remelt any of the wax remaining in the pot to pour the second set of pecans.  Set the pecans aside on a piece of wax paper until later.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate DrizzlePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate Drizzle

Next, you will be preparing the chocolate drizzle. For this, you will need the joy wax. In your pouring pot, weigh out 20 grams of Joy wax. Melt the wax completely and then add in 2 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. Then, using the toothpick method, add in both black and brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to fully incorporate the fragrance and color.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Drizzling the Chocolate

Now, you will drizzle the chocolate wax over the bases of your pecan pies. So, using a spoon, dip it into the wax and holding it above the bases, drizzle the wax back and forth over the pies until you have used all the wax, or until you are satisfied with your drizzle.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Whipped Topping

The next step is preparing the whipped topping of the pies. As a side note, if you are using the same pouring pot as in the previous steps, you will want to clean out the pot completely using paper towels. This is only necessary since the whipped topping will be white with no color. Any leftover colored wax may cause your wax to have a tint. So, in your cleaned out pouring pot, weigh out 120 grams of Joy Wax. Place into the heated water and melt, stirring occasionally.

So once the joy wax has completely melted, remove the pouring pot from the heat source and add in 12 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance and stir this well to combine. For this step, you can use a mixer or even just a spoon. As your wax is cooling down, it will begin to thicken. As it begins to thicken, mix the wax to create a whipped topping consistency. Once you have your wax to whipped consistency, place a dollop on top of each cupcake base.

Next, place a pecan embed on top of each whip topped pie. Press down so the embed adheres to the top snugly. This recipe creates 12 wax melts. Pecan Pie Wax Melts are ready to use! Simply place one in your wax burner and enjoy the warm, comforting aroma that will fill your home!

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: A little Bit of Pumpkin HistoryPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: A little Bit of Pumpkin History

Pumpkins have been a part of history for quite sometime. In fact, they were a staple in early American diets and not in pumpkin pie! The oldest evidence of pumpkins were in pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 B.C. and were found in Mexico. Then, only the seeds were eaten as the pumpkins flesh was too bitter to be eaten. However, with cultivation, pumpkins began to develop a sweeter taste and became a Native American staple. Pumpkin was dried, stewed, baked and roasted. When the pumpkin had been hollowed out, they could be used as a water vessels, storage containers or even bowls.

Pumpkins were such a large part of some Native American food culture. They were actually part of a growing process the Indians called “The Three Sisters”. The sisters were corn, pumpkins and beans. These vegetables were planted together, each one benefiting the other as they grew. Nowadays, pumpkins are a natural fall icon, used mostly for Jack O’ Lanterns, or fall decorating. These pumpkins are mass produced and not edible in the least, although there are still pumpkins grown strictly for eating. These are smaller, denser and sweeter tasting and perfect for those Thanksgiving pumpkin pies and cakes!

We also suggest wearing a hair net and protective clothing when preparing this recipe.  These steps will ensure that you can work smoothly without any interruptions in your creating. Now, we can get started on your recipe!

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepare Your Double Boiler

You will be using a double boiler to melt your waxes and butters, so you will want to get that ready. If you are familiar with how a double boiler works, you can skip this part and move on to the next step. If not, we can give a quick tutorial on setting one up. Double boilers are easy to create. You will need 2 different sized pots, preferably ones that you no longer use for cooking. One pot should be smaller than the other, so that it can fit inside the larger one. In the larger pot, place a few inches of water. To the smaller pot, you will add your waxes and butters. Then you will place the smaller pot into the larger pot to allow the butters and waxes to melt.

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Wax, Oils and ButtersPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Wax, Oils and Butters

Once you have the outside pot heating on the heat source, you will weigh out the wax, oils and butters to the smaller pot. Place your clean pot on the scale, tare out the weight and weigh in 57 grams of Palm Oil, 42 grams of Mango Butter, 113 grams of Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 6 grams of White Beeswax and 15 grams of Pumpkin Seed Oil.

 

 

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Melting the Wax, Oils and Butters

Place the smaller pot inside the larger pot. Now you will melt the oils, butters and wax on a gentle heat, stirring occasionally, until everything is melted and combined. Once everything is nicely melted, you can turn off your heat and remove the inner pot and set it aside for the moment.

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Powders, Micas and Fragrance OilPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Powders, Micas and Fragrance Oil

While you are waiting for the butters to melt, you can prep the powders and micas. So to a small bowl that is placed on your scale, weigh in 2 grams of pumpkin seed powder, 2 grams of pumpkin pie spice blend powder, 1 gram of Diamond Dust Mica, 1 gram of 24K Gold Mica and 4 grams of Caramel Apple fragrance oil.  Mix this together using a spoon until everything is incorporated.

 

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Combining All the IngredientsPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Combining All the Ingredients

Now that your butters and waxes are melted, you can combine the mixed powders and fragrance oil in with the butters. Stir this mixture well until everything is well incorporated.

 

 

 

 

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Pouring the Bath MeltsPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Pouring the Bath Melts

Now that everything is fully mixed, you will be pouring them into the mold. Have your mold setting in front of you and carefully pour the mixture into each cavity.

 

 

 

 

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Allowing the Melts to Set Up

Next, you will need to allow your bath melts to set up a bit. You want them to have a “film” over the top before attempting to move them. This should not take very long. Once they are set, you can move them to the freezer. Allow the bath melts to set in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Then, you can remove them from the freezer and pop them out of their mold.

 

 

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Ready to UsePumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Ready to Use

Your Pumpkin Bath Melts are ready to use! Simply place one melt under warm, running bath water, sit back and unwind after a long day! Enjoy the scent of spice and caramel in the air! Use bath melts with caution, however! They can and will make your bath tub slippery! Also, we do not recommend shipping these to your customers in warm climates. Bath melts will simply melt with skin contact due to body heat.

  • Mixing Spoon
  • Scale

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts

We have included the amounts of each ingredient we will be using. As a side note,  while we give you both weight and volume measurements, we highly recommend using a scale as the measurements will be more precise amounts.

  • 410 grams (2 cups) Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Some of the Ingredients Used

Before we get started on our bubble bars, let’s get familiar with some of the ingredients. Our first ingredient is Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate or SCI. SCI is derived from coconut. It is a foaming and cleansing agent that will leave your skin silky soft and smooth.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium BicarbonatePumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium Bicarbonate

Our next ingredient is Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking Soda. This is is a natural alkaline that is used in cosmetic formulations and cleaning formulas to lift dirt, and remove oils. Using baking soda in your bathtub will leave your skin soft and silky feeling.  It also has the same effect on your hair when used in a rinse. Baking Soda is most often combined with Citric Acid when making bath bombs.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Cream of TartarPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Cream of Tartar

Cream of Tartar is our next ingredient. Most people assume Cream of Tartar is just for baking, however, it is used in many bath products such as bath cookies and of course, bubble bars.

Because we are making pumpkins, we chose to incorporate some Pumpkin Seed Oil! Pumpkin Seed Oil is loaded with many nutrients, such as, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, Vitamins E, A, and C.  It is also rich in the mineral, zinc. Pumpkin seed oil readily sinks into the skin; not leaving the skin feeling oily and can help to repair dry, damaged skin.

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Harvest Moon Fragrance OilPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Harvest Moon Fragrance Oil

The fragrance we chose for these fall bubble bars, is our Harvest Moon fragrance oil. This fragrance is a fresh, crisp mix of blueberries, pineapple, eucalyptus with woodsy bass notes of spruce, fir and cedar. A complex mixture of scents that wouldn’t seem like they could go together. Very unique!

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Before You Get Started

Continue to mix until you have a dough-like consistency. Note: If your dough is too dry and crumbles, you can add a little more vegetable glycerin. However, use with caution. Adding too much will make your dough too wet and it may not setup properly.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Setting Aside a Small Amount

You will be decorating the bubble bars with a small amount of the dough that will be colored later. So, take a small bowl and place it on your scale. Tare out the weight and to the bowl, add 28 grams of the dough mix. You can set this aside for the time being.

Next, we are going to color the dough to its orange pumpkin shade! To your mixed dough, add 20 drops of red Da Bomb Soap Dye and 30 drops of yellow Da Bomb Soap Dye. Once again, using your gloved hands, mix the dyes into the dough until you have achieved a nice, pumpkin orange.

Next, you will be forming the dough into pumpkin shapes. Separate the dough into 7 even-sized portions and using your hands, form the portions into balls. Pack them tightly, just like if you were making a snowball. Make sure they are even and smooth with no cracks showing or they will not set up properly.

Now that you have your pumpkins shaped and packed tightly, you will need to make the stems. For this, you will need the cinnamon sticks. You will want seven pieces that are about 1 inch in length. So, cut your cinnamon sticks to this length.

Once you have completed cutting them, gently place one stick into the dough, pushing slightly. You want to make sure it is centered and secure. Set each one aside for the moment.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Using the Reserved DoughPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Using the Reserved Dough

Now, that the pumpkins are made, you can now work on the reserved dough. Take the dough and weigh in 1 gram of Activated Charcoal. Work the charcoal into the dough with your hands until it is mixed in completely.

Simply pull off small amounts of the charcoal dough and press it into the pumpkins to create your pumpkins how you want them to look.

To help create a more realistic look, take a toothpick and create lines in each pumpkin, starting at the top and ending about half way down the pumpkin.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Let the Bubble Bars Setup

Now that you have completed decorating your bubble pumpkins, allow them to set up in a cool, dry, non-humid area for at least 24-48 hours. Once your bubble bars have hardened, they are ready to use! Simply crumble a bubble bar under warm, running bath water and enjoy!

Witches Brew CandleWitches Brew Candle Recipe

Today, Nature’s Garden has a brand new candle recipe that is just in time for Halloween! This Witches Brew Candle recipe is sure to get your friends excited for the upcoming spooky season! The candle is black and purple striped just like a witch’s stockings would be and poking out of the top is her pointed hat!. Did she melt into the candle and all that is left is her hat? Looks like it to me!

This candle is simple to make! We chose to use Joy Wax, for the base of the candle and Pillar of Bliss for her hat and the fluffy purple top! The whole candle is scented in our fun Halloween fragrance, Witches Brew fragrance oil. This candle would surely be the center of attention at your next party or on Beggar’s Night to help light the way for some candy-hungry trick or treaters.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Ingredients Used

Before we get started, let’s talk about some the components that are used for this sweet candle.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Joy WaxWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Joy Wax

If you are familiar with making candles or familiar with Nature’s Garden candle waxes, then you will know how wonderful using Joy Wax for your candles really is. Exclusively sold at Nature’s Garden! Joy wax is a blend of just the right amount of vegetable waxes, food grade paraffin, and other proprietary ingredients. This wax allows candles to smell stronger, both hot and cold. Also, Joy Wax has a wonderfully creamy, smooth texture to the candle once it has set up.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Pillar of BlissWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Pillar of Bliss

Pillar of Bliss is also a blend of soy wax (more than 50%) and paraffin wax used for poured votive and pillar candles. Pillar of Bliss Wax has excellent fragrance retention with good cold and hot throw characteristics. This wax has a nice hard finish to it. Therefore, when used in molds for wax melts or tarts, Pillar of Bliss has an easy release from the mold.

 

 

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Witches Brew Fragrance Oil

Last, but not least, is our Witches Brew Fragrance Oil that inspired our creation. This scent is a unique combination of secret ingredients. However, there are notes of freshly brewed coffee and something spicy that you just can’t quite place! This fragrance oil isn’t your ordinary fall fragrance!

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Ingredients You will Need and Available at Nature’s Garden

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You’ll Need

  • Mixing Bowls
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Scale
  • Apothecary Jar
  • Pot (for double boiler)
  • Pencil (used to curl your candle wicks)
  • Witch Had Mold (From Flexible Molds www.flexiblemolds.com)

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your candle creating, it is best to familiarize yourself with how to make a candle. Check out our class on how to make Joy Wax Candles and our Candle Wick Chart to help you find the correct size wick for the container that you will be using! 

Also, before you start on your candle, you will want to clean and organize your work space. Make sure you have enough space to work on your candle. Give all your equipment and your work space a good wipe down. Now you can gather your supplies and your candle making equipment. Once you have everything cleaned and prepared, you are ready to move on to creating!

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Prepare the Double BoilerWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Prepare the Double Boiler

As with all candle making, you will need to have a double boiler. If you are familiar with this step then you can move on with the recipe. If not, we can give a quick tutorial. Since you will need a pouring pot, this will act as the inner portion of your double boiler. This will also hold your melting wax and it will go inside the larger portion of your double boiler. The larger pot (you can even use an old cake pan) will hold at least 3 inches of water. You can place the larger pot onto your heat source, and go ahead and add the water.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Prepping the Pillar of Bliss

Our first step will be preparing the witch hat. For this, you will need the Witch Hat Mold from Flexible Molds. These molds are wonderful for soap making and for candle making. They are, of course, flexible which means releasing your product is easier than a regular hard mold. Also, they are durable, last a long time and clean up easily. So place your pouring pot on the scale, tare out its weight and weigh in 2 ounces of Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Place your pouring pot into the larger pot with the heating water. Stir the wax occasionally until the wax is melted and has reached the correct temperature. 

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Adding the Black Candle DyeWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Adding the Black Candle Dye

Now that your wax has melted completely you can now add the black candle dye. So go ahead and add in 4 drops of the dye. Give this a nice stir to incorporate the dye completely.

Once the wax has reached the correct temperature, it is ready for the fragrance oil. So go ahead and weigh in 0.2 ounces of the Witches Brew and stir this well to completely combine the fragrance.

 

 

 

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Pouring The HatWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Pouring The Hat

Now that you have your fragrance oil and black candle dye added and combined, your next step will be pouring the hat. Go ahead and carefully pour the wax into the Witch Hat mold. Allow this to set and cool completely before removing. Once it has, you can pop the witch hat out and set it aside for the time being.

 

 

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Preparing the Candle JarWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Preparing the Candle Jar

Next, you will want to get your container ready. You will be using 2 wicks for this candle. Go ahead and adhere both wicks to the bottom of your jar using a glue gun. Once this is done, you can set it aside for the moment.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Preparing the Purple LayerWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Preparing the Purple Layer

You are now ready to start on the purple layer of your candle. In your pouring pot, weigh out 2 ounces of the Joy Wax. Place the pouring pot in your double boiler. Stir this wax occasionally until the wax is fully melted and has reached its correct melting temperature. Now you can add 2 drops of purple Spectrum Liquid Candle dye, stirring well. Next, add in 0.2 ounces of Witches Brew fragrance oil and stir this well also.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Pouring the Purple LayerWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Pouring the Purple Layer

Now that your wax is scented and colored, the next step is to pour into your container. Slowly pour this layer into your prepared candle jar. Allow this layer to set up before moving on to the next step.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Prepping the Black Layer

Next, you will be working on the black layer of the candle. In your pouring pot, weigh out 2 ounces of Joy Wax. Melt this wax, as before, stirring occasionally until the wax has completely melted. You can add in 4 drops of black candle dye now, stirring well. Then you can add in 0.2 ounces of the Witches Brew fragrance oil.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Pouring the Black LayerWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Pouring the Black Layer

Now that your wax is scented and colored, slowly pour this layer on top of the purple layer. Allow this to set up before moving on to the next step.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Prepping and Pouring the Next LayersWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Prepping and Pouring the Next Layers

Next, you will repeat the process of the black layer and the purple layer, two more times. Always make sure your wicks are straight up, adjusting them, if necessary, as the wax cools.  The last layer being the black layer. You should have 6 layers total before moving onto the next step. Once you have completed the last layer and have allowed it to set up, you can move onto the last layer of your candle.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Preparing the Whipped Wax

Now that your layers are done, you can move on to the whipped wax topping! In your pouring pot, weigh out 4 ounces of Joy Wax. Melt this in your double boiler, stirring occasionally until it has melted completely. Once your wax has melted, you can add in 1 drop of the purple liquid candle dye. Next, add in 0.4 ounces of Witches Brew fragrance oil. Stir well to completely incorporate the fragrance.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Whipping the Wax

You will want your wax to thicken before you start to whip it. When it has started to set up, you can begin whipping it with either a spoon, a whisk or even a fork.  Once you have your Joy Wax well whipped and fluffy, add dollops of it to the top of your candle, creating soft peaks with your utensil of choice.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Adding the Witch's HatWitches Brew Candle Recipe: Adding the Witch’s Hat

Next, you will be adding your prepared witch hat to the whipped topping. You will want to do this before the topping is set up, so go ahead and place the hat gently, but firmly into the topping, centering it in front of your wicks. We chose to tilt our hat slightly.  However, you can lay yours standing straight up, if you choose. Lastly, taking a pencil, curl your wicks around the pencil to complete the candle.

Witches Brew Candle Recipe: Letting Your Candle Set Up

Your candle is now complete and looking beautiful! However, let your candle set and cure for at least 24-48 hours before using it. This will help the fragrance and waxes to fully bond together allowing the candle to have a better scent throw. The only thing left to do?  Trim your wicks to about 1/4″ before burning your candle.  You can even remove the witch hat and use it in your wax melter.

This lotion is incredibly silky with no greasy after-feeling. Your skin will feel soft, supple and hydrated! Perfect for the upcoming winter months!

Aloe Body Cream: What Exactly is AloeAloe Body Cream: What Exactly is Aloe

So what is Aloe exactly? Well, most of us know it is a plant, and the gel that you squeeze from the plant is a must have to help soothe a summer sunburn. However, there are so many other uses and benefits from this spiky looking plant. Aloe barbadensis miller, or Aloe Vera, is a succulent plant that is native to the Mediterranean region as well as East and South Africa area. It is an incredibly adaptable plant and can now be found on just about any continent! Aloe Vera is one of the oldest known plants that has been used medicinally and can be traced back over 6,000 years to ancient Egypt. Ancient carvings contain images of the aloe plant, which they referred to as the “plant of immortality.” It was supposedly given as a gift to deceased pharaohs.

There is more to this plant than the use of its gel for sunburn, though. It contains many nutrients and minerals that are important to the body. Manganese, potassium, magnesium, zinc, copper, calcium, sodium, iron and chromium. Along with these nutrients are many body-healthy vitamins such as niacin, folic acid, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and B12 plus, vitamin C and E. That is a lot of nutrients for such an unpretentious looking plant to have!

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Aloe Vera UsesAloe Body Cream Recipe: Aloe Vera Uses

What can Aloe Vera be used for? Well, there are many uses for this plant! Most know that it is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. The range for medical treatment has widened profoundly in the past ten years. Since it has been developed into a capsule form, Aloe can be used to help treat respiratory disorders such as bronchitis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, or hepatitis. Studies have been done on how Aloe Vera can even be used as a possible treatment for breast cancer!

Topically, Aloe Vera is amazing! Since it is best known for is skin care properties, you can find aloe in all types of bath and body products. It’s rich nutrients and vitamins are perfect to help keep your skin healthy and glowing! Since it is an anti-inflammatory and an anti-fungal, it is perfect for those who suffer from acne or psoriasis. Aloe can even make the skin firmer as well as keeping it hydrated and reducing any wrinkles or fine lines.

Another amazing benefit Aloe Vera has to offer: it is also wonderful to use in hair products. It can help control frizz, add luster and strength to the hair. It also works as a great rinse for oily hair. Aloe is also good to help prevent dandruff or by rejuvenating the hair follicles which helps reduce hair loss. 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Other Uses for Aloe VeraAloe Body Cream Recipe: Other Uses for Aloe Vera

One last thing before we get started on our recipe: Nature’s Garden sells Aloe Vera Powder for external use only. We do not sell it as a food item. The information above is for educational purposes only and is not to be used as medical advice. Now let’s talk about some of the ingredients we will be using in the lotion!

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Argan OilAloe Body Cream Recipe: Argan Oil

Argan oil absorbs beautifully into the skin, making it a fantastic oil to include in your haircare and skincare formulations. This luxurious oil allows the skin to breathe and is used in many acne-fighting formulas. It is a perfect addition to this lotion!

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Mango ButterAloe Body Cream Recipe: Mango Butter

Mango Butter is a rich, intensive moisturizer that helps protect the skin from UV rays and is perfect for those who want to help prevent aging skin. It will help soften wrinkles, smooth fine lines and help improve the look of your skin.

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Stearic AcidAloe Body Cream Recipe: Stearic Acid

Stearic Acid is used in all types of bath and body products. When it is used in lotions or creams it acts as a thickener. If we had chosen to not use stearic acid in this recipe, it would not have that thick, creamy texture to it.

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Fractionated Coconut OilAloe Body Cream Recipe: Fractionated Coconut Oil

This lovely oil looks different from the regular Coconut Oil, it has the same benefits. The only difference is that the whole coconut oil has had certain components of the oil removed leaving a clear, shelf-stable oil that can be used for many things such as medical, cosmetics or even industrial. Fractionated Coconut Oil also makes a very good carrier oil.

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Orchid Rain Fragrance OilAloe Body Cream Recipe: Orchid Rain Fragrance Oil

We chose this fragrance for it’s lovely, fresh spa-like scent! This fragrance oil is a unique combination of fresh orchids, peony, water lily, watercress, aloe vera, and bamboo. Very fresh and clean! The perfect fragrance for this light, moisturizing lotion!

 

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Ingredients Available at Nature’s Garden

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You’ll Need

  • Distilled Water
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Stainless Steel Spoon
  • Stovetop
  • (2) Pots
  • Stick Blender
  • Scale

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

  • 706 grams of Distilled Water
  • 80 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • 36 grams Argan Oil
  • 48 grams Silky Emulsifying Wax
  • 20 grams Mango Butter
  • 16 grams Stearic Acid
  • 10 grams Vitamin E Oil
  • 14 grams Optiphen Preservative
  • 12 grams Orchid Rain Fragrance Oil
  • 25 grams Aloe Leaf Powder

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on preparing your lotion, it’s always best to take a moment to prep your work area. Go ahead and clean and sanitize your work area, equipment and packaging supplies. Also, have your ingredients at an easy reach. This will help streamline your process of making the lotion without having any interruptions. Also, always use cooking equipment that is no longer used for cooking.

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Water Phase

Making any type of body butter, lotion or cream is done in four phases. The first phase is the water phase. You will be preparing your water. We suggest using distilled water. So using a pot that you no longer will be using for food, weigh out 850 grams of distilled water. While you will not need quite this much, some of the water will evaporate. It is always better to have too much water than not enough. Place the pot of water on your stove top. Now heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. You will want to keep the water at this temperature for 20 minutes. This ensures that the heat will destroy any bacteria that may be in the water.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Aloe Leaf Powder

While you are waiting for the water to heat up, you can prepare the aloe leaf powder. Go ahead and take a tea bag. Add in the 25 grams of the Aloe Leaf Powder.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Aloe Leaf PowderAloe Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Aloe Leaf Powder

Next, when your water has reached the correct temperature and has been held for the 20 minutes, go ahead and remove the pot from the stove. In a bowl, weigh out 706 grams of the distilled water and add the aloe tea bag to it. You can go ahead and set this bowl aside for the time being. Your water will turn a shade similar to Apple Cider Vinegar.

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Oil Phase

The next phase is the Oil Phase. We will be using the double boiler method for this step. Have 2 pots ready to use. One pot should be able to fit into a larger pot. In the small pot, go ahead and weigh out all the following ingredients: 36 grams Argan Oil, 80 grams of Fractionated Coconut Oil, 16 grams of Stearic Acid, 48 grams of Silky Emulsifying Wax and 20 grams of Mango Butter.

To the second pot, add just a few inches worth of tap water and place it on your stove top. Turn your heat to medium and place the smaller pot inside the larger pot. Next, you will heat the oils and butter to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring occasionally until all the ingredients are melted. Once these ingredients have reached the correct temperature, you can remove the smaller pot from the double boiler and turn off your heat. 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Mixing PhaseAloe Body Cream Recipe: The Mixing Phase

Before you get started on the third phase, the mixing phase, you will want to make sure the distilled water you heated earlier is at 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Both the water and the oils need to be at the same temperature before you start mixing. If your water has cooled too much go ahead and heat it back to 140 degrees. (Before you combine the ingredients together, you can remove the aloe tea bag from the water.) So once both water and oils are at the same temperature, add them both to a large deep mixing bowl. Next, you will take your stick blender and mix the ingredients together. As you are mixing, you will notice that the mixture is turning white in color. This simply means that your lotion is starting to emulsify

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: The Cool Down PhaseAloe Body Cream Recipe: The Cool Down Phase

Now you need to check the temperature of the mixture. It should be cooled to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Since you will be adding the Optiphen in, the temperature needs to be below 140 degrees. If Optiphen is added at too high a temperature, the preserving qualities of the preservative may be destroyed.  Now once the temperature of the cream has cooled to the 120 degrees, you can now weigh in 14 grams of Optiphen, 10 grams of vitamin E and 12 grams of Orchid Rain fragrance oil. Then, once again using your stick blender, mix these additions into your emulsified water and oil mixture.

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: Packaging Up Your ProductAloe Body Cream Recipe: Packaging Up Your Product

As the cream is cooling, stick blend occasionally to ensure that it is emulsifying properly. Also, as your lotion cools, it will thicken up. Finally, after your cream has cooled and reached room temperature, you can place the cream in your jars and place the lids on top! This recipe makes five 8 ounce jars of body cream!

 

 

Aloe Body Cream Recipe: That’s All For Now

We hope you enjoyed this new recipe from us at Nature’s Garden. This cream is thick, luscious and leaves your skin feeling silky and soft with absolutely no greasy after feeling! These would make perfect gifts to make for your friends, family or to add to your line of bath and body products.
