Narcissist Fragrance OilNarcissist Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Narcissist Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden smell so good that it loves itself.  It sits around its fragrance house burning Narcissist candles, because it likes the seductive, warm blend.  It even bathes using Narcissist Fragrance Oil soap, because it performs so wonderfully!  All joking aside, as nothing negative is implied by the name of this enticing scent.  The word Narcissist comes from a Greek myth about a man named Narcissus.  After rejecting advances from a mythological counterpart, he laid down staring into his reflection in the water, falling deeply in love with his own reflection.  Staring into this fragrance oil probably won’t make you fall in love with yourself (if this happens, consult Greek mythology for possible solutions), but you will certainly be enamored with the scent of Narcissist Fragrance Oil!

Whether you’re a seasoned soap maker or one of the new soapers on the block, our Caramel Fragrance Oil is a great fragrance to use for your soap making recipe. This candy scent can be added to bath oils, soaps, and bath gels at a maximum recommendation of 5%. The Natures Garden cold process soap testing results have shown that our caramel fragrance oil works well in homemade soaps. Not only did this fragrance produce a perfect pour, but there wasn’t any ricing, acceleration, or separation. A bar using this scent has the potential to discolor to a beige and will maintain a light scent retention. However, a lighter bar is possible for those who desire one. Since the vanillin content is 2.6%, vanilla white stabilizer can be used to achieve a lighter bar. Further, we recommend using brown soap colorant and orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for this fragrance. Never use candle dye in any body products.

Homemade scenters may find our Caramel Fragrance Oil to be a perfect addition to any candle, perfume, or cleaner. First, candle makers may add this fragrance to either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax at a maximum usage of 10%.  This sugary scent performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and soy wax.

We suggest using 2 drops brown liquid candle dye and 1 drop orange liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or to shred a small amount of a brown color block and an orange color block into your melted wax. Remember, crayons aren’t sufficient substitutes for colorants and will clog your wick. Second, those making lotions, perfumes or cleaning products can use up to 5% of this fragrance oil.  Also, this fragrance will perform perfectly in perfumes. Lastly, do-it-yourself room scenters can use this scent at a 50% usage rate for potpourri, reed diffusers, or incense.

Soy Candle Recipe


This entry was posted in candle colorants, candle dye, candle fragrance oils, candle making, candle making supplies, candle recipe, candle scents, candle supplies, candle wax, candle wicks, candles, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

how to make a soy candle Soy candles always seem to be the craze.  The soy wax 415 that Natures Garden carries is a 100% all natural vegetable wax.  This also means that this soy wax is biodegradable, and is made from a renewable resource.  When used to make candles; soy wax provides a nice, clean and long burn.

For this recipe, we have figured everything out for you (measurements, temperatures, color, and scent).  We are also presenting it to you in an easy to follow step by step form (with photos).  This recipe will make (1) 16oz apothecary jar candle.

Your finished soy candle will be colored in a light red hue, and scented in with a matching apple orchard fragrance.

We will be double wicking our apothecary jar with (2) CD-10 wicks.  This wicking will provide the candle with a nice hot burn, and allow the scent to travel nicely through the wick; guaranteeing a wonderful hot scent throw.

Besides the ingredients hyper linked above, you will also need some other candle making equipment.  This includes: Thermometer, POURING POT, Warning Labels, Glass Apothecary Jar (16oz), Hot Glue Gun with Gun, Scale, Pot, A cookie sheet, and a Stirring Spoon.

Now, normally prior to making a soy wax candle, you must first check the flashpoint of the scent.  This is important because the flashpoint will indicate the temperature at which you will add the fragrance oil.  However, for this recipe, we have already figured out this information.  Apple Orchard has a flashpoint of 155 degrees Fahrenheit.  What this means is that the temperature at which we will be adding the fragrance oil to the soy wax is 155 degrees Fahrenheit.  Our rule of thumb is:  If a fragrance flash point is below 130F, then add it to wax at 130F.  If the fragrance oil flash point is between 130-185F, then add the fragrance to the wax at its flash point.  If a fragrance oil has a flash point above 185F, then add the fragrance to the wax at 185F.

So now, before we get started making our soy candle; it is important to get all of the supplies and equipment ready that we will be using.  Most of these supplies can be purchased at Natures Garden.  Once you have all of this ready to go; lets get started!

supplies for making a soy candle

Step 1:  Get your pot.  Into the pot, place several inches of tap water.  Next you are going to put the pot on to the stove top and set the heat setting on medium.

Step 2:  Now get your pouring pot.  Inside the pot, weigh out 440 grams of the 100% soy wax flakes.  Once you have the amount, place the pouring pot into the water pot.  This will be how we melt the soy flakes.  This process is known as the double boiler method.

Step 3:  Set your oven to 170 degrees Fahrenheit.  Next, place your apothecary jar on your cookie sheet.  Then, place the cookie sheet inside the oven.  Allow the jar to warm for 10-15 minutes, then remove.  Also, plug in your hot glue gun now.

Step 4:  Now, place your thermometer into the wax.  This is important because you will want to monitor the temperature of the wax while it is melting.  Never let the temperature go higher than 200 degrees Fahrenheit.  This will burn and discolor the wax.  As the wax melts, stir it occasionally.  Also, keeping melting until all the wax is in a liquid state.

Step 5:  Once the wax is all melted, remove it from heat.  When the temperature reaches 185 degrees Fahrenheit, add the 4 drops of Spectrum Red Candle Dye.  Stir.

Step 6:  After the wax has been colored, check your temperature again.  When the temperature reaches 155 degrees Fahrenheit, add your 35 grams of Apple Orchard fragrance oil.  Stir again for a full 2 minutes.  This thorough stir will help the wax, fragrance, and color adhere.  Then, place your thermometer back into the wax.

Step 7:  Next, grab your hot glue gun and place a small amount of glue on the bottom of your wick tabs.  Then, center and secure your candle wicks.
