Sandalwood Scented Candle ProjectSandalwood Scented Candle Project

Finding new recipes to incorporate into your home to create new family traditions, or into your business to invite more customers can be very exciting, especially around this time of year. The season of giving is just around the corner and we know that plenty of people are searching for inventive gift ideas for their family members. Our Sandalwood Scented Candle Project will give you just that! Sure, a book, a coffee mug, or a blanket are cute gifts to give, but why not try out something new and more personalized?! Homemade candles could be just what you are looking for! Being able to create a candle from scratch to give someone as a present around the holidays is special and unique. Plus, who doesn’t love a candle?

In this blog we are going to to be sharing with you the Natures Garden homemade Sandalwood candle recipe! This is one of our chunky candle recipes, which we only have a few of. Chunky candles are a new, exciting and creative way to start making candles. This fun idea is one that we originally came up with in order to ease the process of candle making by eliminating the step of re-pouring when making votive candles. This step can eat up a lot of extra time in the work station, which is not ideal. To see how these chunky votive candles are made, check out the Natures Garden class that explains how to make chunky candles. Without further ado, let’s get started on this Sandalwood scented candle project!

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Other Supplies That You Will Need:

16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar
Scale
Mixing Spoons
Knife
Hot Glue Gun and Stick
Toothpicks
Pot (For Double Boiler)

Pillar of Bliss Wax

Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss Wax is made up of more than 50% soy wax that is blended with paraffin wax. This wax is great to use for poured votive candles, pillar candles, candle wax tarts, and embeds! Our Pillar of Bliss wax comes in a granulated form and also has great fragrance retention. It is a harder wax than our Joy Wax, which makes it an easier wax to work with when making molds. Natures Garden has plenty of fun options when it comes to making candles in molds, such as coffee cups, foods, hearts, animals, and sports! Pillar of Bliss is a great wax to use for these.

Weigh Out the Pillar of Bliss Candle WaxWeigh Out the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

For the first step in this project, you will need to use a scale to weigh out 120 grams of the Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.  After the wax has been weighed out, use a double boiler to melt the wax. Allow it to melt until it reaches a temperature of 195°F, which you can continue checking with the thermometer. 

Color Blocks Dye

After the Pillar of Bliss Wax has melted, we are going to incorporate the chocolate color blocks dye. Natures Garden now carries many new colors in the color blocks! They each weigh between 0.5-1 ounce and are very easy to use in any of our candle waxes. A little goes a long way with these, and depending on the color you are trying to achieve, it can be adjusted by adding more or less of the dye. On our website some of the options you can choose from are red, orange, pink, yellow, white, black, caramel, and chocolate, which we will be using in this recipe.

Add the Chocolate Candle ColorantAdd the Chocolate Candle Colorant

For this Sandalwood recipe, measure out about three grams of the chocolate color block, and make sure to use a scale to ensure accuracy. Add small amounts of the chocolate color in order to reach the desired shade. Add this to the melted Pillar of Bliss Wax. Be sure not to add too much of the chocolate color block to the wax, as it can end up clogging the wick and affecting the way that your candle will burn.

Combine the wax with the colorant by stirring both of them together. To ensure that you are achieving the correct color, there are some ways that you can test it. One way of doing this is by placing a small amount of the wax on a white paper plate using a spoon. You will be able to see the true color of the wax once it has had time to set up. Add more of the color block to your Pillar of Bliss Wax in small amounts if it is needed.

Sandalwood Fragrance OilSandalwood Fragrance Oil

We have over eight hundred fragrance oils to choose from at Natures Garden. All of our fragrances are 100% concentrated, and this one is no different. Our signature Sandalwood fragrance has a very woody scent, which contains hints of both cedar wood and sandalwood.  The scents of jasmine and rose also come out in this fragrance oil, which adds to the distinct softness of sandalwood. The aroma that it gives off is both strong and wonderful. We use this Sandalwood Fragrance Oil in our homemade Sandalwood Bath Bomb and Sandalwood Soap recipes as well.

Adding the Sandalwood Fragrance Oil

Once your candle wax has reached the correct chocolate color, you will need to weigh out 12 grams of the Natures Garden Sandalwood fragrance oil on a scale and add it to the wax. After this has been added, stir the wax once again to fully blend all of the ingredients together before putting the wax into molds.

Molding Your Candle WaxMolding Your Candle Wax

The next step in this recipe is to pull out the 4-loaf silicone mold. Use each of the cavities in the 4-loaf silicone mold to pour some of the melted wax into. Allow enough time for the poured in wax to setup and harden.

Cutting Your Candle ChunksCutting Your Candle Chunks

Once the wax has had time to set, you can then pop each of the loafs out and remove them from the mold.  Then, using a knife, you are going to want to cut the wax into square pieces.  When you are finished, your wax should look like little chocolates. You are going to set these pieces aside for the time being.

What Is Joy Wax?

We are going to begin using the Joy Wax for this next step. This product is only available and sold at Natures Garden! A blend of soy wax, different vegetable waxes, food grade paraffin, and other proprietary ingredients makes up our Joy Wax. This is an excellent product to use for candle making because of the way it holds to containers. It is different than the Pillar of Bliss Wax, as it holds very nicely to the sides of jars and has a glossy finish to it. Our Joy Wax gives off amazing cold and hot scent throw with NO curing time necessary! Joy Wax allows you to create candles with rich colors without having to include any additives.

Melting the Joy Wax for Your Sandalwood CandleMelting the Joy Wax for Your Sandalwood Candle

Now that we have learned more about this product, similarly to what you did with the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax, you are going to weigh out 300 grams of the Joy Wax. After it is measured out, you are going to melt it using the double boiler once again. Continue melting until it reaches a temperature of approximately 200°F, using the thermometer.

Coloring the Joy WaxColoring the Joy Wax

Now that the Joy Wax is melted, the next step is to add a very small amount of the pink color block. We want the color to be a very light pink, so it is important not to add too much color.  Each one of Natures Garden color blocks can create several different shades for products. This includes the pink color block, which can provide candles with a nice variety of pink shades. Once again, you will probably need less than a gram of this color block because we want it to come out a fairly light shade of pink. Stir to completely blend the colorant with the candle wax.

Adding the Sandalwood Fragrance OilAdding the Sandalwood Fragrance Oil

After the pink color block is thoroughly mixed with the Joy Wax, you will need to measure out and add 30 grams of the Sandalwood Fragrance Oil.  In order to completely incorporate the Sandalwood fragrance oil, stir the mixture together.

Adding the Candle WicksAdding the Candle Wicks

Now that everything has been mixed together evenly, the time has come to add your wicks to the jar!  The CD candle wicks at Natures Garden are precut, prewaxed, and pretabbed. They come in various sizes, including CD 5, 7, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22. Here is a helpful chart on what size wicks you will need depending on the size of your candle jar or container. In order to get the candle wicks to stick in your jar, you can use a hot glue gun with a hot glue stick to get them to adhere to the candle wax.  Evenly place the candle wicks in the jar and make sure they are centered. We used two CD-12 wicks in our 16 ounce apothecary jar.

Setting Up Your Finished Sandalwood CandleSetting Up Your Finished Sandalwood Candle

Pour the melted wax into the 16 oz. glass apothecary candle jar that you have. Now it is time to retrieve your chocolate colored cubes that were set aside earlier and gently drop them into the jar.  It is important that you make sure to keep the wicks remain straight and centered as you are doing this.

 

Curing the CandleCuring the Candle

Before trimming the wicks that you set up, allow enough time for your candle to fully harden. Also allow enough time for the candle to cure if you choose to do so.

 

Using Your Sandalwood CandleUsing Your Sandalwood Candle

Once your homemade Sandalwood Candle has had enough time to cure, it will be all ready to burn. Simply trim your wicks prior to lighting it. We hope that you enjoyed making this homemade Sandalwood Candle Project as much as we did!

Eggnog Candle RecipeEggnog Candle Recipe

It is that time of year again, eggnog season.  Today, I will share with you a candle recipe we created using our Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  This eggnog candle recipe looks good enough to drink!  While we obviously do not suggest drinking it, it sure does smell and look just like the real thing.  Finally, we you finish creating the candle be sure to check out my absolute favorite real eggnog drink recipe.  It is thick and delicious and something I make every year during the holidays.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Ingredients You Will Need Found at Natures Garden

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment That You Will Need

Mixing Spoons
Stove
Scale
Pot (for double boiler)
Glass Mug
Toothpicks
Cheese Grater
Paper Bowl
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for the Main Candle

455 grams Joy Wax
45 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil
Toothpick Spectrum Yellow Liquid Candle Dye
Toothpick Spectrum Brown Liquid Candle Dye

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for Whipped Portion of Candle

85 grams Joy Wax
8 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Jar for the Candle

First, prepare your mug.  We use a glass mug that we picked up at our local grocery store.  Our mug was slightly under 3.5 inches in diameter.  So, we used a CD-12 wick in our mug.  The size of the wick that you use will depend upon the diameter of the mug you are using for your candle.  While I can’t tell you the exact size you will need, I can tell you that I highly recommend the CD candle wicks when using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Our size recommendations, based on diameter, can be found in the description of our CD candle wicks at the link in the ingredients list above.
Once you have determined your wick size, use a hot glue gun to adhere the candle wick to the bottom of your jar.  You will want to make sure the wick is centered in the mug.  Once your wick is in place unplug your hot glue gun and move on to the next step.

Now, let’s prepare our Joy Wax.  In order to melt the Joy Wax, we will use a double boiler.  This will slowly melt the wax and prevent it form scorching.  You will need to first prepare a pot of water. The pot only needs to be filled with a few inches of water. Heat the water.  Once you have your wax weighed out, you will need to place your pouring pot inside the hot water to melt the wax.
So, in your pouring pot, weigh out 455 grams of Joy Wax.  Then, place the pouring pot inside the pot containing the water.  Allow the wax to melt.  Once the temperature reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the pot from the heat.

Next, we will be adding our colorant.  When using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax the colorant should be added at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, for this candle recipe we will need both Spectrum yellow candle dye and Spectrum brown liquid candle dye.  Now, we only need a little bit of each.  While it can be hard to get just a small amount of liquid candle dye out with a dropper, it is not impossible.  In order to get just a small amount you will simply need a couple of toothpicks.  First, we will add the yellow candle colorant.  Go ahead and dip your first toothpick into the yellow colorant.  Then, dip the yellow colorant into the candle wax.  Throw this toothpick in the trash.  Next, dip your second toothpick into the brown candle dye.  Then, dip this same toothpick into the candle wax.  Throw your second toothpick into the garbage.  Finally, mix to fully disperse the candle colorants.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance OilEggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance Oil

When working with Joy Wax, we suggest adding your fragrance oil between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.  So, today, we will be using Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  We couldn’t create an eggnog candle without an eggnog scent, right?  So, we will be using 10% fragrance oil for this recipe.  So, when your wax is at the correct temperature, add 45 grams of your Natures Garden Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  Then, make sure you mix the candle wax for about 30 seconds.  This will ensure that your eggnog scent is completely blended with the candle wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle Wax

Now, we will be pouring our candle wax.  When using Joy Wax, we recommend pouring your candle wax in warmed jars.  By warming your candle jars before pouring into them, it will help your wax to cling very nicely to your jars.  This is because your wax cools very slowly, allowing time for air bubble to release from the wax and thus the wax adhere to the walls of the jars better.  You want to put your jars into the oven at the very lowest setting.  So, turn your oven on the lowest temperature possible.  Then, place the jars on a pan and in the oven for just a few minutes. Do not allow them to get hot, they only need to be warm.

When pouring the wax, the temperature should be between 160 degrees Fahrenheit and 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once your candle wax reaches this temperature, pour the wax into your jar.  Make sure your wick is centered and secured in the center.  I use a fine tooth comb to keep my wicks in place.  Place the comb across the jar’s opening and put the wick centered in between the teeth of the comb.  Lastly, allow the candle wax to setup before moving to the next step.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Melting the Wax for the Whipped Topping

Joy wax can easily be used as a whipped topping on your candles.  For this particular recipe, we will be using 85 grams of Joy Wax.  However, we will be leaving this portion of the candle uncolored.  Once again, we will be using a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  So, go ahead and melt the wax using this method. However, this time bring the wax to a temperature between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  The Joy Wax does not need to get any hotter since we are not adding any candle colorants to it.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil to the Whipped Topping Portion of the Candle Wax

Now, we will be adding fragrance oil to the whipped topping portion of the candle wax.  Once your candle wax temperature is between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit, add 8 grams of the Eggnog scent.  Then, mix the fragrance oil into the wax with a clean mixing spoon.  Stir for about 30 second to be sure that the Eggnog Fragrance Oil is completely mixed with the Joy Wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

Next, we will begin whipping the Joy Wax.  This portion of the wax will be placed on the top of our main candle.  This will give your candle the look of a creamy top that you see on a glass of eggnog.  While it may look more complicated, all the topping requires is cooled and whipped Joy Wax.  All you will need is the candle wax and a mixing spoon.

 

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

So, you want to allow your Joy Wax to cool.  As it cools stir it periodically.  Once it is at a thicker consistency, begin mixing until it takes on a whipped topping type consistency. Once the Joy Wax has reached this consistency, use a spoon to scoop it on top of your setup candle.  While you are topping the candle, make sure you keep your candle wick centered.

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing TouchesEggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing Touches

There are a couple of things we will be adding to the candle to finish it off.  First, we will be adding a small cinnamon stick.  I should note that this will need to be removed prior to burning, but it does give your candle an adorable finishing touch.  We will also be grinding and adding cinnamon to the top of the candle.

First, we will add a cinnamon stick.  Place the cinnamon stick vertically, but slightly angled right inside your candle.  It should stick out slightly though.  You want it to look like it is floating in your jar.

In addition, we will need to grind just a little bit of a cinnamon stick.  We will grind the cinnamon using a cheese grater.  While yes, we could use pre-made ground cinnamon, it won’t be as coarse or look as nice.  So, go ahead and grind just a small amount of the cinnamon.  To do this, place your cinnamon stick horizontally across your grater and move it across the grater quickly.  Finally, sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top of the candle.  Then, give your wick and little curl and your candle is finished.  Just remember to let the candle cure for a few day before using it or selling it.  This will ensure that your candle’s scent is a strong as possible.

Are you now craving the real thing?  I have tried many eggnog recipes myself.  Personally, my favorite eggnog recipe is this eggnog recipe from Tastes Batter From Scratch.  It is thick, creamy, and delicious.  It is sure to be an instant hit!

Now, moving to those of you making bath and body products.  This fragrance can be used in body butters, perfume oils, massage candles, and more.  These types of craft recipes can be created using our recommendation of no more than 5% of this cilantro aroma.   Soap makers can also use Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil at a maximum of 5% in cold process soap, hot process soap, and melt and pour soaps. Our CP soap testing results for this fragrance have shown a perfect pour, no ricing, no acceleration, no separation, and no discoloration.  It had a good scent retention.  We at Natures Garden suggest the use of green soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.  Remember to never use candle dye in any body products, why not try our Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant instead.

For those creating other room scenting recipes or homemade cleaners, potpourri and incense can be created at a maximum usage rate of 50%.  Cool Cilantro fragrance oil is also nice and strong in aroma beads.   Cleaning products can use this fragrance oil at a maximum of 5%.
