Granulated Candle Wax RecipesGranulated Candle Wax Recipes

Granulated candle wax recipes are a perfect way to make candle making simple! These Natures Garden recipes require no melting, so it is easier and safer to create. This means that you don’t need to pay attention to the temperatures at which to pour. Also, you can allow kids to help create these candles because there is no heat involved! You get to skip all these more complicated aspects and move straight to the creative part of candle making. So, the majority of your focus will be on scent, color, and scooping it the wax. Further, the granulated wax is easier to manipulate than the melted wax. While the melted wax can’t really be moved after its poured without ruining the appearance, granulated wax can be manipulated to look exactly how you want. It is similar to creating those layered sand crafts. So, kids may enjoy these candles more for that reason. But, this doesn’t mean that granulated candles are just for kiddos. Adults can get creative with this method, too. Check out our recipes to see exactly what you could be making through this style of candles making.

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Pillar of BlissGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Pillar of Bliss Wax

First, we have the lovely Pillar of Bliss Wax by Natures Garden. This wax is a blend of mostly soy wax and a bit of paraffin wax to create a lovely candle wax. You can either melt the wax for candles or leave the wax whole. Either way, you can perfectly scent and color your wax for making amazing candles.  The wax looks like small beads initially, which can be fun for homemade candles. So, this granulated wax is perfect for making textured candles that look amazing! 

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Day at the Beach Candle RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Day at the Beach Candle Recipe

One perfect way to use this granulated wax is to create the Day at the Beach Candle Recipe. This wax is perfect for creating a fun beach themed candle! We wanted to create this beach candle to match the aroma of our NG Copper Hue Suntan Lotion Fragrance Oil. So, we needed to dye the pillar of bliss wax to look just like soft, white sand. Further, the small wax beads add to the granulated sand texture that is perfect for creating sand. All we had to do was color the granulated Pillar of Bliss Wax. Then, melt the wax, like normal, to create the water and there you have it!

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Bacon Candle RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Bacon Candle Recipe

Also, you can use this awesome wax to create unique designs in your homemade candles. Our Bacon Candle Recipe used three different portions of colored Pillar of Bliss Wax. This was used to create an appearance of real bacon along the sides of the jar! All we had to do was color, scent, and scoop in the wax. Plus, the scent of our Bacon Fragrance Oil really added to this fun candle! While creating a candle like this can be a bit more time consuming, this type of candle making gives you the opportunity to make more unique types of candles.

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Democratic Candle RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Democratic Candle Recipe

The Democratic Candle Recipe is another great example of what you can create with this wax! One issue that comes up with candle embeds is the possibility of your embed melting once you pour in the rest of the candle. But, granulated completely changes the game. Instead, you just need to scoop in your gorgeous red and white striped layers. So, between the granulated wax, simple embed, and the scent of Democrat Fragrance Oil this is a perfect candle!

 

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Pink Camouflage Candle RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Pink Camouflage Candle Recipe

Next, we have the pretty Pink Camouflage Candle Recipe! This candle idea uses the amazing NG CanCan Type Fragrance Oil with Pillar of Bliss Wax to create a cool design. Similarly to the bacon candle, this candle allows you to scoop in your wax to create a design. So, just grab a spoon and start making your candle. This candle uses various shades of pink to create an awesome pink camo candle!

 

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Green Camouflage Candle RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Green Camouflage Candle Recipe

Also, you can create the Green Camouflage Candle Recipe. Obviously, you can create this candle basically the same way that the pink camouflage candle is made. The only difference between these candles is the colors are green and the scent is the Fresh Outdoors Fragrance Oil. Just mix up your granulated wax colors and start scooping up the wax with a spoon.

Autumn Leaves Potpourri RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Autumn Leaves Potpourri Recipe

Further, Pillar of Bliss Wax is perfect for making scoopable wax for your wax warmers! Granulated wax is perfect for making DIY scoopable wax for your oil burners. All you really have to do is color and scent to wax, then it’s all done! Plus, this recipe is cute and smells delicious with the cute wax leaves and the amazing Autumn Woods Fragrance Oil. After you mix in your little leaves, your wax is ready to scoop straight into your warmer!

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri Recipe

The Glistening Snowflakes Potpourri Recipe is another great idea for creating a scoopable wax melt recipe. Of course, this recipe uses the amazing Pillar of Bliss Wax!

Next, check out the Independence Day Candle Recipe! This recipe is for another fun embed candle. The embed is a cut out of a star shape and you can see the red and white stripes straight through your blue star cut out. The only thing that could’ve made this candle more patriotic is the Apple Pie Fragrance Oil (Our Old Version). Luckily, we added that, too!

 

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Hydrangea Candle RecipeGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Hydrangea Candle Recipe

Also, we have the pretty Hydrangea Candle Recipe! This candle recipe uses beautiful shades of blue and purple to create the gorgeous candle that was inspired by real Hydrangea flowers! Furthermore, this candle is topped with butterfly wax embeds, which is perfect for this candle. Apparently, butterflies love our Hydrangea Heaven Fragrance Oil as much as the real flower!

Not only can you use this wax to make fun designs, but this wax is perfect for kids to create layered sand candles that they can use! Just mix up the colors in bottles, set the wick, and let your kids create their own candle! It’s a super cute and a craft idea for kids that wouldn’t take too much work to set up. There is no need to melt the wax and all your kids need you do is pour in the layers! Plus, it is just as fun as creating layered sand bottles.

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes Palm Container Candle WaxGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Palm Container Candle Wax

Palm Container Candle Wax is another great idea for creating some homemade granulated candles. This wax looks almost identical to the granulated wax of Pillar of Bliss. Plus, this environmentally conscious product is a natural wax that is perfect for candle making. You will love this wax in your homemade candles! The scent throw is lovely and the appearance is perfect for textured candles.

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes  Palm Pillar Candle WaxGranulated Candle Wax Recipes Palm Pillar Candle Wax

Also, you can use Palm Pillar Candle Wax to create more unique granulated candles.

So, this wax is another great choice for granulated candle making.

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes What About the Rainforest?Granulated Candle Wax Recipes What About the Rainforest?

Well, there is no need to worry because our palm waxes are safe! Our palm waxes come from palm trees which are cultivated on private plantations. Thus, our palm wax is no threat to rainforests or the orangutan ecosystems. Our palm wax is eco-friendly and is provided from a sustainable tree crop which helps to sequester carbon. 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). Besides plantation companies, foreign companies and Associations such as Unilever, Sainsbury (in the United Kingdom), Migros (in Switzerland) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are also active participants in RSPO.

Granulated Candle Wax Recipes How to Color Granulated WaxGranulated Candle Wax Recipes How to Color Granulated Wax

While you can melt your granulated wax to create solid candles, it perfectly possible to create a granulated candle at home. Since there is no need to melt wax, you may be confused as to how you would add colorants or fragrance oil, but it is super easy to do! When I create my own granulated candles, I prefer to use a Ziploc bag. First, just add in the measured proportion of the granulated wax. Then, you are going to add in some of your colorant. But, the colorant will need to be a liquid candle dye. Since you are not melting the wax, a color block will not work the same way. So, add your chosen liquid candle color. Then, shut the bag and mix! You can add more colorant, if so desired, until you get the color you need for your candle.

Similarly to coloring your granulated wax, adding your fragrance oil is super easy! After you determine the perfect color, all you need to do is mix in your fragrance oil. Just add in the product safe percentage of your fragrance oil, which is usually 10%. Many allow the 10%, but every fragrance oil is different. Now, all you need to do is mix in the scent! After, you are ready to begin scooping the wax mixture into your jars.

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Hi! I’m Dorene Nowatzke and my company is D’Lites by Dorene!

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  My initial motivation to start a business was purely economical. Having my child move on to college meant a loss in income related to child support.  Additionally, my child’s moving on meant I had additional time available.  About the same time, I had started making candles as a hobby and found I had too many to burn myself or to give away. Opportunity presented itself, and I decided to take advantage of it!  I’ve now been in business for two years and have found my creativity for this business has only grown over time! There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything!

3.  What products do you make and sell?  D’Lites by Dorene is your source for highly scented, hand poured candles and home fragrances. Candles range from 7 oz and 12 oz container candles, votives, tealights, and fragrance melts, and are complemented by products available in diffuser oils and fragrance sprays. My candles are a custom blend of paraffin and soy waxes. Paraffin is used to hold the strong colors you see and scents you smell. Soy is used to create a product more eco-friendly to our environment. Together, a quality product is created and tested to be the best possible for you and your home. Additionally, many of my fragrances are custom blends from core fragrance oils provided by Natures Garden.  I also create unique gift items such as rose petal soaps, all natural hand & foot balm, body sprays, and pine cone firestarters.

4.  What are your business goals?  My goals are to grow my business in order to provide a flexible schedule and income when my husband retires. I hope to grow my online presence by at least 25%, to double my bricks and mortar locations, and to add one or two wholesale representatives this year.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  By far my favorite products from Natures Garden are its fragrance oils. Its extensive product line provides many inspirations for new products for me to carry. I also use many of the bath and body bases as I dabble with increasing my product line in these areas.

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:   Jessica Perez, Sierra Rose Candle Company

2.   Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  This business actually started out as a hobby.  I was tired of going to the store and buying candles only to get home and be extremely disappointed in the quality.  Either they weren’t strong enough or they just weren’t very pretty to look at.  Then one day it hit me, try making your own.  After much practice I finally perfected my formula and I had all sorts of friends buying from me.  So I eventually turned it into a small business.  Sierra Rose Candle Company has been in business since September 2010.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  We sell candles, fragrance warmers and fragrance melts, foaming hand soaps, and body products.

4.  What are your business goals?  My business goals are to eventually open my own store here in San Antonio, Texas.

Homemade Candles

Fragrance Oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name: Hartley House Candle Company

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  Looking back on how this journey began is sort of interesting. I suppose a piece of Hartley House Candle Company has always been with me in one way or another.

Nearly twenty years ago, I was away with a good friend of mine on a cabin camping trip. On one of our day adventures, we happened upon a small country candle store. Shelves upon shelves, bins upon bins of candles! Votives, pillars, tea lights, tapers, jars…it was a scent lover’s paradise! I was in awe! I remember filling trays with votives, determined to sample as many as I could not knowing if/when I’d get back there. I used those votives so sparingly because I enjoyed them so much I didn’t want to get to the last one.  Nearly ten years later, my passion for candles was firmly rooted. I hid them in my dorm room, I made sure I always had several I loved in my small apartment, etc. I was thrilled to supplement my teaching income working in a local Yankee Candle store, taking full advantage of the associate discount!  Then I met my husband, stopped teaching and entered into the corporate world, my means of relaxing was a soft smelling candle and warm bath. Soon after buying our house and getting engaged, we discovered our first little baby was on the way.  While being a wife & mother will always be my greatest joy and truest accomplishment, I am almost sad to admit I felt something missing from my personal life. I have a wonderful group of friends, family that is genuinely amazing (on both sides) and a supportive loving husband.  So, what was my problem?! Only now do I know the answer. I have always been a creative person. I love reading, writing, crafting and what was missing was that “just for me” time. Everything I did was because I was someone’s wife, daughter, sister, mother, employee, friend. But what was I doing for me?  I confided in my husband many times. It wasn’t that I was unhappy. I certainly was not. I just felt like there had to be more. I started scrap booking but didn’t enjoy it much. I tried other crafts, sewing, crocheting , etc but it just wasn’t my thing. I made a few projects around the house and was proud that I crafted something that brought happiness and beauty to our home.  Then I asked my husband for a candle making kit because I wanted to try my hand at a genuine hobby I found intriguing. Immediately, upon first pour, I was hooked!  I adore the process of selecting scents, molding, etc. This candle making was quickly my mental break from being everyone else’s somebody. When we decided to turn my passion over to a business venture, my only caveat was that it had to be all mine. I would craft my own candles, not resell other’s work. I would add scents to the shop and form relationships with my ‘customers.’  I suppose technically I opened shop 6 months ago (October 2012) and since then I have met amazing people, refined my craft and found myself in ways I didn’t even know I was missing. I will forever be grateful for this journey of self-discovery and for my loyal customers who bring me such joyous pride; that humble ol’ me could make candles they enjoy as I did mine from that little country candle shop!

3.  What products do you make and sell?  Hartley Candle Company sells container candles (mason jars, keepsake jars, balmoral jars, aluminum tins), tealights, pillars, votives, and a growing number of shaped candles.

4.  What are your business goals?  Here at Hartley House Candle Company, I believe that beautiful, aromatic candle products can be crafted with love and consideration for our health & well being, as well as with an earnest respect for our environment.  Hartley House is committed to producing high-quality candle products with integrity, using healthy materials that are conscious of both physical and mental well being as environmentally sound.  My goal is to continue to grow in my trade and offer the best candle products to the candle loving market!

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I love Nature’s Garden products. Currently I use a variety of the fragrance oils including Sangria Punch and Basil Sage & Mint which are two of my most well-loved scents!  I also use the Reed Diffuser Base, aluminum tins and rattan reeds for products offered in my shop.
