First, you are going to create the flower embeds for your candle wax tarts recipe . So, you are going to need to melt down the wholesale candle wax with the pouring pot. Of course, you should use the pouring pot that is used to make your double boiler. You will need to weigh out 0.25 ounces of the Pillar of Bliss Wax. Then, you will be ready to add the candle wax to this pouring pot. You will need to stir your mixture as the wax melts down. This will both move the process along and prevent scorching.

Now, you are going to add a few finishing touches to this portion of the melted wax. So, you will need to add a very small amount of a yellow color dye block. You will need to stir to fully incorporate this candle colorant. This candle wax color will be used to create the yellow center of the embed flowers. Although we are adding a colorant, we are not going to add a scent to this small portion of the candle wax. Since this is a small portion of the wax melt, it won’t make much of a difference to leave it unscented.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Center of the FlowerDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Center of the Flower

Next, you will need to use this yellow wax to create the center of your embed flowers. So, you will need to get your Daisies Embed Mold ready to use to create the flowers. Then, you will need to use a disposable pipette to fill the center of the embed flower mold. Just take some of the melted yellow wax in the pipette and add it to the center of the flowers. Also, you will want to be careful that you only fill the center part of the mold.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melting the White Candle WaxDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melting the White Candle Wax

The second part that we will create is the white portion of the flower embed mold. This will be used to create the petals of the flower. You are going to add 4.5 ounces of the Pillar of Bliss Wax to the pouring pot in the double boiler. Once all of your wax has melted, you are going to add a small portion of a white color block to the wax. Be sure that you mix to fully incorporate the candle colorant.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Scent and Pour the Embed DaisiesDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Scent and Pour the Embed Daisies

Now, you are going to add the fragrance oil and create your embed daisies. First, you are going to add 0.45 ounces of the fragrance oil to the melted wax. You will need to stir in the scented oil to fully incorporate the scent. Next, you are going to pour the white candle wax. Since the yellow wax should be set up at this point, you will be able to pour this white portion of the embed mold directly on top of the yellow wax. After all of your daisy cavities are filled, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Once the wax for your daisies has completely set up, you can remove them from the mold. If the wax has not yet set up, you can set the mold aside for the moment. You can always come back to pop out the daisies later on in the candle making process. For now, you can move on to the next part of the process of making the best wax tarts!

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melt the Wax Melt BaseDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melt the Wax Melt Base

Next, you are going to prepare the base of the wax tarts. Again, you are going to need your pouring pot in the double boiler. So, weigh out and add 13.5 ounces of the Palm Pillar Wax to the pouring pot. As your wax melts, you will want to make sure that you stir occasionally.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and ScentDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and Scent

Once your candle wax has completely melted, you will be ready to add the colorant to your wax! So, you are going to use a small amount of the bayberry color block to get a pretty green color. As the color dye block melts, you will want to stir in the candle colorant. After the melted wax has an even color throughout the wax, you will be ready to move on to the next step.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and ScentDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and Scent

Once your wax has been melted and colored, you will be ready to add the scented oil. So, you are going to need to measure and incorporate 1.35 ounces of the Dreama Fragrance Oil. This fragrance begins with notes of oakmoss and lilies. The scent continues with middle notes of ylang ylang and jasmine. Further, the scent has a base of amber, musk, and sandalwood. So, this is a fantastic aroma to include in your wax melts. Again, you will need to stir to make sure that your scented wax includes the fragrance evenly.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Wax Tart BaseDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Wax Tart Base

Now that your green candle wax is melted and ready to use, you are going to need to set up your portion cups. These portion cups will act as the wax tart mold for this recipe. In total, you will need about 9 individual portion cups to create your wax melt base. So, you will use up your freshly melted candle wax to fill each of these portion cups. You will want to make sure that you leave a little bit of room to add the daisy on top. We recommend that you pour slightly above 3/4 of the way full. Once you have filled each of your portion cups, you will need to move on to the next step before your candle wax sets up completely.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Wax Embed DaisiesDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Wax Embed Daisies

Next, you are going to add your cute daisy embeds to the green wax tart base. You will want to make sure that you add your flower shaped wax melts to the top of the base before it entirely sets up. Of course, you will want to make sure that the wax base is set up enough that your flower won’t sink right through. However, the wax tart base will need to still have a soft surface. Once you reach this sweet spot, you will be ready to add each of your daisies to the soft candle wax.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Using Your Finished ProductDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Using Your Finished Product

Finally, your wax tarts are finished and nearly ready for you to use! All you have left to do is wait for your wax tarts to set up completely and cure. After your wax tarts have hardened, you can wait to remove the wax tarts until after the curing process. The process of curing should only take about two or three days to make sure that the fragrance oil has settled. This will allow you to make wax tarts will be the best strongest wax melts that you can possibly make. If you want to ensure that the scent remains trapped, you can cover your wax tarts to help keep the scent trapped in the jar and allow it to really come alive.

Witching Hour FragranceWitching Hour Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The “witching hour” commonly refers to the time of night when witches and other supernatural beings are believed to be at their most powerful. In medieval times, it was believed that any woman out after midnight without a ‘legitimate reason’ to be out could have been suspected of witchcraft. In more modern times, the witching hour refers to the last hour of stock trading between 3pm and 4pm which sees a high amount of activity. Not as exciting as magic and ghosts and ghouls. Witching Hour Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is perfect for your fall bath and body recipes

What Does Witching Hour Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A fun Halloween fragrance composed of spicy, magical notes:  this accord begins with freshly ground cinnamon bark, and complemented with herbal notes of bergamot, cannabis flower, jasmine, and rose;  and sits on earthy base notes of sheer musk, black tea, and patchouli.

How Do Our Customers Use Witching Hour Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Candles! This spooky scent performs perfectly in Joy wax and WOW wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fun fall fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 6 drops of purple liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of purple color block into your melted wax. Never color your candles with crayons; it will clog the wick.

Room scents! This complex accord comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. (Try a reed sticks for easy room scenting!)

How Do Our Customers Use Witching Hour Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this Halloween aroma in bath oils, bath gels, and soap is 1%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance performed perfectly in CP soap. It showed no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, no discoloration, and good scent retention. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use purple soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color your bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! Now is the time where I’d normally recommend using natural soap colorant but, unfortunately, natural purple soap colorants are hard to find. You could try using activated charcoal powder to dye your soap black (or gray depending on how much you use). Activated charcoal is also a detoxifying agent and a natural odor absorber!

Body products (outside of the bath)! This magical scent performs perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body sprays is 0.5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in cleaning products is 1%.

Fall Fragrances For Candlemaking

Fall-FragrancesFall Fragrances for Candlemaking

It’s Autumn– time to decorate your home in warm, earthy tones, but no home is completely decorated without the soft glow of candlelight and a house-warming scent. (Save the unscented candles for your jack-o-lanterns outside and be sure to brush up on your candle safety!) We’ve got lots of fun festive fall fragrances at Nature’s Garden, but some were created specifically with creating scented candles in mind– these oils are not body safe. They still smell amazing- we just don’t recommend using them in any bath and/or body products. Here are three exceptional autumn aromas you can use to make delightful decorative candles, classic candle wax tarts, or relaxing, robust room scents!

Harvest Type Fragrance Harvest Type Fragrance Oil

A spicy blend of cinnamon bark and clove bud on a dry down of musk. A simple yet sophisticated seasonal scent. Maximum recommended usage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestions are 4 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of orange and brown color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum recommended usage in room scenting applications is 50%.

Mulled Cider FragranceMulled Cider Fragrance Oil

Strong base notes of ripened apples and oakmoss with a complex blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, orange zests, lemon peel, and a touch of tart lychee berries and coumarin. Maximum usage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestions are to use 6 drops red plus 2 drops brown liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of red and brown color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum usage in room scents: 50%.

Pumpkin Pie Spice FragrancePumpkin Pie Spice Fragrance Oil

The aroma of sweet cream pumpkin, complimented with nuances of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and ginger; rounded out with buttery vanilla notes. Maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes: 10%. Not gel wax compatible. Coloring suggestions: 4 drops orange liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of orange color block per 4 pounds of wax. Maximum usage percentage in room scenting applications: 19.7%.

We’ve got some cute fall-themed molds that you could use to make candle potpourri tarts: pumpkins (of course), small leaves, oak leaves and acorns, and for Halloween: the BOO mold!

For room scenting applications: try aroma beads or a reed stick diffuser kit.

You could also try dipping colorful fall leaves in scented wax to preserve them and use as decoration– just be sure to set them in a glass or metal dish because fragrance oil may have an adverse reaction with the surfaces of your furniture.

If you’re absolutely aching to make pumpkin-pie-spice-scented bath and body products, try our Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Powder— it’s safe for use in bath and body products. I even used it as an ingredient in my first ever sugar scrub; I can attest to its amazing aroma. Need that vanilla kick? Try adding some Vanilla Powder or Natural Vanilla Infusion. (I used the vanilla oil in my sugar scrub recipe- smells great!) Now what about the pumpkin part? Try adding pumpkin puree! (Everything mentioned in this paragraph is body safe- but don’t put any of it in your candles!)

For body safe scents similar to Mulled Cider- check out our Apple Aromas.

Pumpkin Cheesecake FragrancePumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Pumpkins are very popular this time of year. Not only do the orange gourds make beautiful decorations, but they also make some delicious desserts. We’ve already covered Pumpkin Eggnog and Pumpkin Roll, but now we’re going to talk about mouth-watering Pumpkin Cheesecake. Cheesecake itself is already very nice, but add some pumpkin puree and extra spice, and voila! You’ve got a sensational seasonal treat. It can be described as a mix between cheesecake and pumpkin pie. It’s even a popular seasonal flavor of ice cream- a triple threat: pumpkin pie, cheesecake, and ice cream! Regardless of how you choose to eat it- we can all agree that it smells delicious.

What Does Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The incredible aroma of cardamom, ground cinnamon, Vermont maple, pumpkin puree, carrot, whipped cream, rum, cream cheese, caramelized sugar, and French vanilla which is all blended to true perfection.

How Do Our Customers Use Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This bakery scent performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this delicious aroma in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 2 drops orange plus a small amount of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of orange and a small amount of brown color block into your melted wax. Never use crayons to color your candles; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This fall fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this sweet, spicy scent in bath oils, bath gels, and soap is 0.7%. Our cold process soap-testing found that this mouth-watering pumpkin fragrance performed perfectly in CP soap with no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and good scent retention. It did, however, discolor to a light beige color. Almost the color of cheesecake! Check out the soap-testing video or fragrance oil page to see a picture of the discoloration result. Discoloration is likely due to the high vanillin content of the fragrance: 8%. You can combat discoloration due to vanilla with our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. But remember- you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products made with this delicious dessert scent are to use orange and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. You can also try natural soap colorants– but pay close attention to the information on their corresponding pages- some colorants are affected differently by different soapmaking processes.

Body products (outside of the bath)! This pumpkin scent performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body sprays is 0.7%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this appetizing autumn aroma in cleaning products is 0.7%.

Hayride FragranceHayride Fragrance Oil Spotlight

What did the hungry horse say to the forgetful farmer? “HAY!!” Hayrides are another hallmark of autumn. Bundle up and load up a wagon full of soft hay, pile everyone in and go for a ride through the countryside! Hayrides often accompany other fun family fall activities such as corn mazes and visits to the pumpkin patch. The Metroparks offer hayrides and a corn maze for the kids at the Carlisle Equestrian Center here in Ohio  during weekends in October (only $1 for tickets). Or, if you’d like the aroma of going on a hayride without having to brave October weather or potentially itchy and pokey hay- fill your home with this fragrance while staying warm inside!

The scent of new mown hay with notes of sweet balsam combined with smooth vetiver and cedarwood giving way to that fresh outdoor country air aroma.
