Snowy Luminary Candle Jar RecipeSnowy Luminary Candle Jar Recipe

Do you want to learn how you can make another one of our homemade crafts for the holidays? Then this blog is for you! We will be talking about our Snowy Luminary Candle Jar Recipe today. This is a pretty simple craft to make, that uses only five ingredients and looks gorgeous once it is all finished. Since it isn’t difficult to do, children can also be a part of the process of making it! If you were in search of some new craft ideas to make for decorating the house or to gift a family member, this is the perfect one for you! Even though the jar is holding a candle, it still has other uses as well. If you do not want to create the candle portion, you can use the glittery snowy jar to put candy such as candy canes for your holiday parties. You can also definitely use it as a unique rendition of a stocking, which you could fill with cute stocking stuffers that are good for children, spouses, friends, and even coworkers. Let’s go ahead and jump right into the recipe!

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Epsom Salt
Christmas Wreath Fragrance Oil
Diamond Dust Mica Pigment
1.75” Zinc Core 44-20-18 Candle Wicks
Pedestal Cup
Disposable Pipette
Joy Candle Wax
Pouring Pot
Thermometer

Other Ingredients & Equipment You Will Need:

Elmer’s Glue
Newspaper or wax paper
Crafting paint brush
Mixing Spoon
Glass Bowl
Ribbon
16 oz Apothecary Jar

Preparing Our Station

The first thing that we are going to do is to prepare the work station where we will be creating. For this project, it is a good idea that we lay down either newspaper or wax paper on a clean surface. By doing this, it will protect counters and other parts of your workstation from becoming messy. Putting down the paper will prevent the Epsom salt and the glitter in mica powder from spreading all over the place. 

Pouring in the GlueCreating the Paste for the Candle Jar

For the first step in the recipe, we are going to need to prepare our glue. We will just be using regular Elmer’s glue for this craft recipe, that you can buy from almost any store. We need to pour into a small bowl about two ounces of the Elmer’s glue. Then, we need to add to that between 2-4 ml of the Natures Garden Christmas Wreath Fragrance Oil. This is the ingredient that will provide your candle jar with a wonderful Christmas scent. It is a strong but nice mixture of a lot of different elements. Natures Garden’s Christmas Wreath scent starts with the top notes of orange pomander, bergamot, and holly berry. The Mixing the Fragrance to Create the Gluemiddle notes of this fragrance include Christmas lily, eucalyptus leaves, and cinnamon bark. Finally, the base notes are fir balsam and pine. Another recipe that we have made which uses this fragrance oil is our Christmas Wreath Fire Starters. These will help to make it easier to light your fireplace, since it can sometimes be difficult to do so.

Coating the Candle Jar in the Glue PasteCoating the Candle Jar in the Glue Paste

Next, bring out your 16 oz apothecary jar. We are now going to apply the glue mixture that we just made to our jar. Take out a paint brush and dip it into the bowl of glue. Then, we are going to take it and use it to coat the jar in glue. Just get a bit at a time, applying thin layers. We should not over load the paint brush with glue because we do not want the jar to be drenched, which can create a big mess. We also cannot use too much of the glue because it will create clumps, which will still show when the glitter is added onto it.

Adding the Epsom Salt to the Jar

Adding the Epsom Salt to the Jar

Now that we have all taken the time to read up and learn all about Epsom Salt and the benefits of using it, we can continue making our snowy luminary candle jar. While the glue is still wet, go ahead and get out your bag or jar of Epsom Salt. We are going to sprinkle the Epsom salt all over the entire jar, covered in glue. There is no exact amount that we can give you to use for this part of the recipe. Use your judgment and continue pouring it on until the glue is hidden. After the jar is completely covered, grab the diamond dust mica pigment for the next step. Now, on top of the Epsom Salt, we are going to sprinkle the diamond dust mica all around the jar, giving it a nice layer of glitter. Make sure that you allow the glue to dry completely before moving onto the following steps.

The Candle Making ProcessThe Candle Making Process

While you are waiting around for the candle jar to completely dry, we can start on the actual candle portion. In this step we will be preparing the candle that will eventually be set in the luminary candle jar. Begin by gathering the scale and weighing out one ounce of the Natures Garden Joy Candle Wax. We are going to be using the double boiler method for this recipe, as we usually do. Grab a normal stove-top pot that you use only for soap making and candle making.

You will also need to grab a pouring pot. Fill up your stove-top pot with a few inches of water and place it on the stove burner to heat the water up. Then, take the one ounce of Joy Wax that we weighed out and add this ingredient to the pouring pot. Place the pouring pot with the Joy Wax within it into the stove-top pot with the heated water. We are going to leave these on the stove burner until the one ounce of Joy Wax has completely melted. Add 0.1 ounces of the Natures Garden Christmas Wreath Fragrance oil once it has melted. Stir to fully incorporate the ingredients.

Pour into the Pedestal CupPour into the Pedestal Cup

When everything is stirred together, pour the melted wax into the pedestal cup that you have set to side somewhere. Then, pick out one of the 1.75″ Zinc Core 44-20-18 candle wicks. This is the wick we suggest using for this recipe. However, if you are interested, we have an entire selection of different candle wicks. Place one of the wicks in the pedestal cup. Allow the candle enough time to set up.

Decorating the Candle JarDecorating the Candle Jar

Now we have reached the fun part! Once the glue on your jar has completely dried, you can finally decorate it. For our jar we grabbed a cute ribbon that was red and sparkly and we wrapped it around the top of the jar. This addition to the craft really tied in the theme of Christmas for us. For your jars you can use anything Christmas themed or just simply sparkly. You could always add other colors of glitter such as gold or green, or maybe incorporate stickers or crinkle paper shred filling. Keep messing with different craft decorations until you achieve the final look that you want your snowy luminary candle jar to have. Once you have achieved that special look, place the set up candle that you made into the candle jar.

We hope that you enjoyed creating this homemade snowy luminary jar candle!

Epsom SaltEpsom Salt

Since this ingredient is going to be used today, and since it plays such an important role in the overall look of this luminary candle jar, we are going to talk a little bit about Epsom Salt. There are many benefits to using Epsom Salt for many different kinds of products and projects. If you are interested, we actually have an Epsom Salt class up on the website that will go in depth about some points I will be summarizing here. This product is beneficial to use medicinally and to add to bath, body, and cleaning products.

Medicinal Benefits of Epsom Salt

Medicinally, Epsom Salt is an anti-inflammatory that can be used to treat problems such as headaches, muscle pains, bites, stings, and rashes. It is rich in both magnesium and sulfates. The magnesium helps to eliminate toxins and control the production of energy. Sulfates form brain tissue, joint proteins, and other proteins that line the digestive tract and help with the digestion of food. It also helps people sleep better because it has properties that relax the muscles and soothe the skin.

Epsom Salt Uses in Products

Epsom Salt is useful in cosmetics, bath and body products, as well as for skin care and hair care. Bath fizzies and bath bombs commonly use Epsom Salt because of the benefits to the skin. It deep cleans and exfoliates the skin, helps eliminate acne, and can even help with preventing wrinkles from developing. Natures Garden has a Christmas Bath Cookies Recipe, which uses Epsom Salt, as well as our Green Apple Candy Bath Bomb Recipe. It is also a nice ingredient to add to hair conditioners because it provides them with a volumizing property.

As far as cleaning products, a mixture of Epsom Salt and liquid dish detergent can work well when used to scrub floors. This combination will gather up any dirt and grime that are clinging onto your floors. It can also be useful to scrub pots, pans, or dishes clean that have been scorched and hold burnt food on them.

Refreshing Foot Soak RecipeRefreshing Foot Soak Recipe

I wanted to mention at least two of the recipes from Natures Garden that include Epsom Salt as one of the ingredients. This recipe for a Refreshing Foot Soak will create eight of these simple homemade baggies. You will be mixing together Epsom Salt, dead sea salt (high minerals fine ground), menthol crystals, bath tea bags with pull strings that are fillable, and the Natures Garden eucalyptus and spearmint fragrance oil. Diving into this foot soak will feel great on the skin and soothe it, along with relaxing the muscles in your feet. However, make sure to use this only for your feet, as directed, so that the menthol crystals do not irritate other parts of your skin.

Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub RecipeChocolate Bath Butter Scrub Recipe

For the second recipe I wanted to mention our Chocolate Bath Butter Scrub. This will make you four 8 ounce jars of bath butter. The ingredients in this one are also fairly simple and used often in the soap making, candle making, and bath products industry. It takes whipped soap base, organic cocoa powder, vegetable glycerin, vanilla white color stabilizer, Epsom Salt, Better than Sex Cake fragrance oil, and the brown and black FUN soap colorants. All of these ingredients are sold by Natures Garden and are easily accessible through the link above.

Melting Snowman Candle ProjectMelting Snowman Candle Project

In this blog we are highlighting a brand new homemade candle that we recently made! This is a recipe original to Natures Garden, as we have not seen it done before. We wanted to try something new and make a cute craft for the holidays! This melting snowman candle project was the perfect Christmas creation for our vision. Our candle project is an added bonus for anyone out there who loves snowmen decorations as well. The scent from the Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil really gives it the smell of a minty Christmas! It can be used as a decorative candle around the house, or it could be given as a cute, fun, unique gift to any friends, family, coworkers, teachers, and more! Although this is a newer recipe of ours, the Natures Garden website carries MANY homemade products such as embed molds, fragrances, and ornaments that are related to Christmas. These can be used to make several more fun, homemade, Christmas recipes! We even have a free class section dedicated to all sorts of Christmas Craft Recipes, including cold process soap, bath bombs, potpourri, and candles. Now we can go ahead and get started with this melting snowman candle project!

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden:

Joy Wax- 1 SLAB
BEESWAX White Pastilles
Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil
Yellow Color Blocks Dye
Orange Color Blocks Dye
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- BLACK 1 oz.
CD Candle Wicks (100 wicks)
POURING POT
Flexible Silicone Mat

Directions:

Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:

(4) 16 oz Glass Apothecary Jars
Scale
Bowls
Stove-top Pot
Hand Mixer
Mixing Spoons
Knife
Hot Glue Gun and Stick

Before we begin, it is important to make sure that you have a clean work space to create this project. Sanitize all of your packaging materials before using them. As you should know, only use materials that are for soap making and candle making. Do not ever put food or anything like that in these same packaging materials. Especially with soap, since lye can be deadly if ingested. It is suggested that you wear gloves and protective clothing when preparing this recipe.

This recipe will make approximately 4 scented candles.

Prepare the Double BoilerPrepare a Double Boiler

As usual, we are going to be using the double boiler method to make this recipe. Grab a normal stove-top pot that you use only for soap making and candle making. You will also need a pouring pot. Place a couple inches of water in the stove-top pot and put it on the burner to heat it up. Then, each time you need to melt an ingredient for this recipe, add it to the pouring pot and place that inside of the stove-top pot. The first thing we need to melt is the Beeswax.

Melting the Beeswax

To begin, we need to weigh out 5 grams of the Beeswax White Pastilles. This type of wax is extracted and filtered from the honeycomb of a beehive. Beeswax is commonly used in cosmetics, toiletries, and candle making. As we mentioned, this will be the first ingredient that we melt using the double boiler method. Place the beeswax into your pouring pot and add that to the heated water that is in the stove-top pot.

Incorporating the Orange and Yellow ColorantsIncorporating the Orange and Yellow Colorants

Once the beeswax white pastilles have completely melted, we are going to incorporate the colorants. These will be essential for the faces of the snowmen. Using the color blocks dye, shave off a tiny piece of the yellow color dye and a very tiny piece of the orange color dye. Add both of them to the melted beeswax. After everything has fully melted together, transfer the mixture to a plate to allow them to set up for about a minute.

Wipe out the contents from the pouring pot that are left over from creating the orange colorant. Next, measure out an additional 5 grams of the beeswax white pastilles. Put them into a pouring pot and melt them down again with the double boiler method. Then, add one drop of the black spectrum liquid candle dye. Once it has evenly mixed in with the beeswax, pour it out onto a plate just as we did before. Give this about a minute to set up.

Pouring Out the ColorantsCreating the Facial Pieces of the Snowman

Once the color blocks are set up, it is time to cut our pieces out! Using a knife, we are going to cut out snowman noses with the orange portion. All you need to do is angle the knife to create a long triangular shaped nose. Then, we need to shape the snowman eyes and mouth out of the black portion. To do this, take the knife and hold it vertically. Place it in the black portion and move it in a circular Creating the Facial Pieces of the Snowmanmotion. We made four black circles for the mouth and obviously two for the eyes. Now you will have all of the parts to their faces that you need! We will of course place each of these onto the snowmen heads in a later step so hang tight!

Weighing Out the Joy WaxWeighing Out the Joy Wax

Now, weigh out two pounds of the Natures Garden Joy Wax. This was created by Natures Garden and is only sold here! Joy Wax is a great container candle wax which provides both hot and cold scent throw. It also requires zero curing time! Fragrance holds much more to Joy Wax than other types of wax on the market, and there is no seeping. It only requires a single pour, it clings to jars really nicely, and its appearance is both glossy and creamy. When you weigh it out for this recipe, it does not need to be exact–as you can see from the picture, we measured a little bit over two pounds. Put the Joy Wax into the pouring pot, place it in the stove-top pot with heated water once again, and melt it down.

Incorporating the Fragrance OilIncorporating the Fragrance Oil

Measure out 2.5 ounces of Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil. We have not gotten to use this fragrance in many recipes, so we decided to incorporate it into this one. It is very fitting for a melting snowman candle and fits right into winter and the holiday theme! This fragrance oil is an original scent made by Natures Garden. It blends together the scents of peppercorn, nutmeg, fresh clove, elderberries, blackberries, plums, green oak moss, carbonated pop, and to top it off, cool mint. The main element of this scent that comes through is the cool mint, which fits right in with winter. It is also a great fragrance to use in body perfume, soap, bath oils, lotions, potpourri, and incense! After you measure out the 2.5 ounces, add them to the melted Joy Wax.

Combining the MixtureCombining the Mixture

Once you have taken the melted mixture of the Joy Wax and Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil off of the burner, pour it into a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer with attachments, begin stirring the mixture back and forth. Doing this step will prevent any clumps from forming at the bottom of the bowl. Once this has been done for a minute or so, set the electric mixer to the side. Then, get a larger mixing bowl and put some ice cubes in it. Place the smaller bowl with the mixture in it inside of the larger bowl. Doing this with the ice in the larger bowl will allow the mixture to cool down much more quickly.

Forming the MixtureForming the Mixture

Once you have your bowl with the mixture inside of the larger bowl with ice, it will begin to cool down. Start by stirring it with a mixing spoon every once in a while. Then, use the electric mixer once again to begin thickening the mixture. Continue stirring until it becomes the consistency of a thick frosting.

Setting Up the WicksSetting Up the Wicks

Meanwhile, you can start setting up the CD candle wicks in the candle jars while you wait for the mixture to keep cooling down. We used the Natures Garden CD candle wicks in 100 count. We also sell Hemp, Zinc Core, and HTP candle wicks in sample size, 100, and 1000 count. Take your candle wicks and get a hot glue gun with a hot glue stick. Squirt a small amount of the glue onto the silver part of the wick. Then, stick them to the bottom of each of the candle jars, quickly, before the glue dries. Make sure to center them.

Pouring the Mixture Into JarsPouring the Mixture into the Jars

After you have your candle wicks set up and centered in the jars, pour your thick frosting like mixture into each of the candle jars. Try your best to avoid pouring it over the candle wicks. Now your candles can have a bit of time to set up while we make the snowman heads!

The first thing we need to do is to weigh out one pound of Natures Garden Joy Wax. Put it into the pouring pot once again, in the stove-top pot with the heated water and melt it. We are going to use this portion of Joy Wax for the heads of the snowmen. When the wax has fully melted, add in one ounce of the Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil once again.

Forming the Mixture to Create the Snowman HeadsForming the Mixture to Create the Snowmen Heads

Next, transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and place it inside of a larger bowl with ice once again. It will cool down much faster with this method, which we need to happen in order to add them onto the candle jars. You can alternate between the electric mixer and a mixing spoon to stir it all up. Continue to stir and mix until it finally becomes thick enough to roll into balls. This step may take a while because it takes time for the mixture to become that thick for the snowmen heads. Keep working with it and it will eventually become as thick as the picture shows!

Rolling Out the Snowman HeadsRolling Out the Snowmen Heads

The next step is to actually create the heads of the snowmen with that thick mixture of Joy Wax and Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil. Take out a silicone mat to make it easier to roll these into balls. Roll your wax into four balls, one head for each jar. Decorate them with the eyes, nose, and mouth pieces that we cut out. Allow the balls to set up in the freezer for about ten minutes to harden. Since Joy Wax is so soft and smooth, touching it can quickly cause it to start melting. Placing them in the freezer after they have been formed will help to make it easier when placing them in the candle jars.

Using a straw, poke holes through the center of the snowman heads. Push the straw completely through each of the heads. This step is necessary in order to feed the candle wicks through the heads.

Finishing the Melting Snowman Candle ProjectFinishing the Melting Snowman Candle Project

Finally, you can place each of the balls on top of the melted snowman bodies in your candle jars. Feed the CD candle wicks through the hole in the snowman heads. Trim the candle wicks and your project is all finished! Although this picture only depicts three candles, the recipe does make enough for a fourth candle. Thanks for following along and we hope that you enjoyed making these adorable Melting Snowman Candles!

How Joy Wax Can Be Used


This entry was posted in candles, joy wax, Natures Garden, wax art and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

How Joy Wax Can Be Used

Are you interested in learning about some different methods to create homemade candles, potpourri, wax tarts, and wax melts? We at Natures Garden would like to introduce you to our Joy Wax, which is only available at Natures Garden’s store and on our website! This wax is made from a combination of soy wax, different vegetable waxes, food grade paraffin, and other proprietary ingredients. We test each batch out ourselves using color, fragrance oil, CD candle wicking, and of course, 100% Joy Wax. We sell our Joy Wax in various sizes, depending on the amount you are going to need for your projects. This product of ours is continuously gaining popularity on the market and is rated our number one candle wax. Get ready to hear all about the Natures Garden Joy Wax, what it is, and a variety of ways that it can be used!

The Size Variety of Joy WaxThe Size Variety of Joy Wax

The Natures Garden Joy Wax comes in a few different sizes, all of which we are going to mention. The first and smallest size that we sell is one slab of Joy Wax, which are about 10-12 pounds each. The next size up is one case of Joy Wax, which range from 54-60 pounds each. The largest size that we sell is by the skid-load, made up of 42 cases of Joy Wax, again, 54-60 pounds each. With this variety, you will be able to make as many candles and wax melts as you would like!

More About Joy Wax

As we have mentioned, our Joy Wax consists of soy wax, vegetable waxes, paraffin, and other proprietary ingredients. We decided to create a wax that would work excellently for container candles. With this Joy Wax that we have created, you will be able to get both hot and cold scent throw, without any curing time being necessary.

Since we had container candles in mind when we were creating this, it has been designed to cling nicely to jars. It also has a creamy and smooth finish to it, and no additives need to be added for the wax to perform the way that it should. By using our Joy Wax, you will be able to create candles that are rich in color. Your candles will also have an excellent melt pool, and usually only require one pour in most jars.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Joy Wax Candle Making Kit

We believe that the best way to get started making your own candles is to purchase a starter kit, which we have several of. It would be a good idea to start with our Joy Wax Candle Making Kit to get familiar with this product. This candle making kit comes with three pounds of Joy Wax, two color blocks, 4 one ounce fragrances, 25 six inch hemp candle wicks, twelve hexagonal jars with lids, and it includes a complete set of instructions. The fragrances included in this kit are currently fresh linen, spring rain, vanilla silk, and strawberry passion. You will also need to get a metal pouring pot and a candle thermometer, which do not come in the kit. Both of these items are available to buy from Natures Garden. This kit makes it very easy for you to get started and learn how to work with Joy Wax. In addition, you will not need to use all products included in the kit, so you will have a jump start on your next candle making project.

How to Make Joy Wax Container CandlesJoy Wax Container Candles

Now is the fun part! We are going to begin talking about just how you can make container candles using Joy Wax. First, we will introduce to you a recipe to make basic Joy Wax candles. Then we are going to give two specific recipes using Joy Wax: Shimmer Gel Potpourri and Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts. Seeing each of these will allow you to learn the variety that Joy Wax offers in candle making. The first recipe we will be referring to makes four pounds of candles.

Ingredients:

Joy Wax
Coloring (You can use either our Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye or Color Blocks)
Pouring Pot
Scale
13 x 9 pan
Fragrance
Candle wicks
Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
Heat source
Candy thermometer
Work clothes
Safety glasses

How to Make Joy Wax Container Candles

First, weigh out 4 pounds of Joy Wax on a scale. Turn your oven on 150-200°F. Put your empty glass candle containers on a tray and in the oven to warm them to about 150°F when you will be pouring into them. Pouring hot wax into a cold container will cause your wax to set up too quickly and your candles will develop jump lines or wet spots.

Gathering Your Materials

Put about 1″ of water in your 13 X 9 pan on the stove. Turn the temperature setting on your stove between low and medium. Gather your pouring pot, coloring, additives, fragrance, containers, and wicks to start making your container candles. Put the 4 pounds of Joy Wax into a clean pouring pot and place that inside of your 13 x 9 pan on the stove.

Melt Your Joy Wax

Allow your wax to melt in the pan. It is important that you never melt wax with the pouring pot directly on a heat source. This can quickly become a fire hazard or can result in your wax being scorched. If your wax gets scorched, it will create a burnt smell. If your wax smells like this, it is ruined and wax that becomes scorched cannot be corrected. Periodically check the temperature of your melted wax with your candy thermometer. Heat the Joy Wax up to 200°F. Once again, make sure that it does not get too hot and become scorched.

Adding the Candle Colorant

You should add the candle colorant at the hottest temperature. Add 1-10 drops of liquid candle dye to the melted wax. Stir. Do not use more than ten drops of the liquid candle dye. Liquid candle dyes will make it easy to get a consistent color since you can simply count how many drops you have added. This can be important when marketing you homemade candles to your customers. Alternatively, you can use Natures Garden’s color blocks with the Joy Wax. Color blocks are a good alternative to liquid candle dye if you are looking for more rich, dark colors for your candles. They are great for larger batches. However, if you are creating candles in smaller batches, you will need to make sure you are weighing out just how much of the color block you are adding in grams. This will allow you to get a consistent color.

Preparing the Candle Wicks

While you are waiting for your wax to cool you can prepare your jars. Putting wicks in your candles is much easier when you use either the pretabbed prewaxed wicks. The zinc core or CD type wicks from Natures Garden are the most popular. You have a couple of options when adding candle wicks. Allow your candles to cool a little until you see that the bottom of the container has about one inch of candle setting up. Straighten your wicks and place them in the candle centered and evenly spaced apart.

If you are placing more than one wick into your jars, make sure that the wicks are not too close to the sides of the container because it may create soot. Your wicks will move if you try to wick your candles too soon and they will not be spaced apart properly. However, if you wick your candles too late, your wicks will not migrate to the bottom of the container. This brings us to the second option. It may be helpful for you to use a hot glue gun to center and adhere your wicks to the bottom of your containers if you wish to. If you decide on using the hot glue gun, you will need to put the wicks into your containers prior to pouring in the hot wax.

Adding Fragrance Oil and Pouring the Joy Wax

Remove your warm glass candle containers from the oven and place them on a surface that is heat resistant. Prepare them in a line so that they will be ready for the hot wax to be poured in. You can add your candle wicks now, or later. This will depend on which option you chose. Next, you will need to remove the pouring pot from heat and allow the temperature of the Joy Wax to drop to 170°F. Then, add 1-1.5 ounces of fragrance oil per pound of melted wax to your melted wax mixture. Stir the wax, thoroughly blending the fragrance oil and pour the Joy Wax into your glass containers. Stop pouring the wax at the point when your candle jar starts changing shape. Sink holes may develop if you fill your jars too full.

Cooling the Candles and Finishing Up

For the best results when cooling your candles, allow them to cool at room temperature. Center and straight your wicks before allowing them to set up all of the way. You can place a pencil across the opening of the jar, wrapping the candle wicks around it to keep them in place. We also find that placing a fine tooth comb across the opening, using the space in between teeth of the comb to hold the wicks in place also works well. Condensation can develop if they are put on the jars too soon.

Finally, let’s talk about curing. You can allow your candles to cure for a few days in order for the fragrance to fully bind to the wax before burning it. Cure the candles with their lids on after they have completely set up and cooled down. While we find it isn’t 100% necessary since Joy Wax has a beautiful scent throw without curing, it really kicks the scent throw up a notch.

Shimmer Gel Potpourri RecipeShimmer Gel Potpourri Recipe

Now, we are going to introduce to you one of our homemade room scenting recipes using Joy Wax. Did you know Joy Wax can be used for more than just container candles? For example, although this recipe is made from soy wax, it can easily be substituted with Joy Wax. This is yet another way to show the versatility of Joy Wax. When coloring this recipe, you can also use spectrum candle dyes in place of the gold mica pigment. You will be able to produce one 8 ounce bottle for your oil burner using this recipe.

To create this potpourri, the first thing you do is 60 grams of Joy Wax into your pouring pot. Then, you will use the double boiler method as described above to melt the wax on a low temperature on the stove until the wax is all liquid.

Next, weigh out 30 grams of Natures Garden’s Glitter Fragrance oil. Prepare your gold mica pigment or your spectrum candle dye, whichever you have chosen to use. Once your Joy Wax has been liquefied, it is now time to add the fragrance oil. Stir well and then add the mica pigment or candle dye, and stir again.

Weigh out 142 grams of the Rice Bran Oil that you will be mixing with your wax. Once the wax has been both scented and colored, add the Rice Bran Oil.  Stir well to fully combine. Allow the temperature of your mixture to reach somewhere between 140-150°F. At this temperature, pour the liquid you created into your Boston round bottle slowly. Give it enough time to cool. Add the disc top lids to your bottle once the outside of it is cool to the touch, and you have finished your homemade potpourri!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax MeltsPumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts

Lastly, we want to show you one more product that you can create using Joy Wax. Our wax melt recipes are very popular, and this recipe of ours is also perfect for this time of the year. Pumpkin cheesecake would be a perfect scent to melt and smell around the house this fall. We have linked the ingredients that you will need to create this below.

Since the recipe is linked above that you can follow, we are only going to mention where the Joy Wax is incorporated in this recipe. It comes into play when you are preparing the whipped topping of the pumpkin cheesecake wax melts. After you weigh out 9 ounces of Joy Wax, place it into the pouring pot. Continue melting on your stove on a low setting until the wax is completed melted. Next, weigh out and add 0.9 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil to the wax and stir.

After the wax has started to set up in the pot, use a spoon to begin whipping the wax until you achieve a whipped topping texture. Simply frost each of your cheesecake bases quickly and  fluff the tops to look like whipped cream. Finally, sprinkle pumpkin pie spice blend powder over each of the melts. Remove them from the molds when they have cooled down. Now, if you are hungry for the real thing, our pumpkin cheesecake wax tarts were inspired by these mini pumpkin Oreo cheesecakes.

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!

Also, you will want to clean all of the candle making equipment that you will need for this scented candle recipe. Of course, these supplies are listed above. Finally, you will need to clean up your work space to give yourself some room to create your own scented candle!

Prepare a Double Boiler to Melt the Candle WaxPrepare a Double Boiler to Melt the Candle Wax

One last preparation that you are going to want to do is create a double boiler for the melting candle wax. This double boiler will protect your candle wax from heating too quickly and potentially scorching. In order to create a double boiler, you will need both a pouring pot and a regular stove-top pot that you use only for craft making. You fill the stove-top pot with a few inches of water. Once you fill the pot with water, you will need to place it on the burner. You are going to need to heat the water. When you are ready to melt the wax for this recipe, you will put the candle wax in the pouring pot.  The pouring pot will then be placed in the pot containing the hot water

Melting the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the Candle RecipeMelting the Pillar of Bliss Wax for the Candle Recipe

Now that your double boiler is ready to use, you can prepare and melt the candle wax for this recipe. So, you will need to weigh out 120 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Then, you will want to add the candle wax to the pouring pot. Now, melt the wax. You will want to occasionally stir the wax, but you can use the double boiler device to more safely heat your wax. After this pillar candle wax has been melted completely, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Adding the Caramel Candle ColorantAdding the Caramel Candle Colorant

Once all of your candle wax has completely melted, you are ready to add the caramel candle colorant. Now, you are going to be adding just a small amount of a caramel color block to your candle wax. You are going to want to make sure that the candle wax has the color of an actual caramel candy, but you should not need to use more than a gram of the candle colorant. As you can see in the picture, you will not need much of the block.  After adding a portion of the caramel color block, you will want to stir to incorporate the color fully into the melted wax.

Testing the Candle Wax ColorTesting the Candle Wax Color

Instead of moving on without knowing whether you have the right color, you are going to be testing the candle wax color to determine whether you need to add more. Of course, you will need to mix everything together when you add more of the candle colorant. Since the color of your wax will lighten as it sets up, it can be useful to let a small drop set up on a paper plate before you move on. This will allow you to see the true color that you will end up with if you stick with that amount of colorant. Of course, you can continue to add more of the color block until you reach the hue that you would like. You can continue to use tiny amounts to test your colorant until you get a nice caramel color.

Scenting the Apple Dumpling CandleScenting the Apple Dumpling Candle

Next, you are going to be ready to add the apple dumpling scented oil to your melted wax. So, you are going to need to weigh out and add 12 grams of the Apple Dumpling fragrance oil to your melted wax. This will provide your homemade candles with a fantastic aroma that is absolutely delicious! This scented oil begins with top notes of red candy apples, and pears.  Then, this aroma will continue with middle notes of nutmeg, clove, cardamom and freshly ground cinnamon bark. Finally, this bakery scent rests on base notes of dry notes vanilla and hazelnut. So, you can include this scent in your diy candle recipes to provide a perfect room scent for your home.

Creating Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle RecipeCreating Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe

Now you are going to be creating the embeds for this homemade candle recipe. So, you will need to pour your caramel colored wax into the silicone four loaf mold. Alternatively, you can pour this wax onto a piece of wax paper in a baking pan. You will want to allow the wax to set up, but it should still be warm to the touch.

Cut the Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle FormulationCut the Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle Formulation

Then, you are going to cut the embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle Formulation. So, you will need to retrieve the caramel colored wax, which should be about set up but still warm to touch. You are going to need to use a knife to cut the caramel colored wax into square pieces. The goal here is to make these embeds look like real caramel candies. After you have created your wax chunks, you can set these caramel pieces aside for a later step.

Melting the Joy Wax for the Apple Dumpling Candle RecipeMelting the Joy Wax for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe

Next, you are going to be melting the Joy Wax for this candle recipe. You will need to weigh out 300 grams this Natures Garden wholesale candle wax. Then, you will add the weighed Joy Wax to the pouring pot that is in your double boiler. While the double boiler will help to prevent scorching, you will want to occasionally stir as the Joy Wax is melting. Once everything has completely melted, you are ready for the next step in the process.

Adding the Cream Color Block

Now that all the candle wax has melted, you are going to be adding the cream color block to your wax. Again, you will want to use less than a gram of the color block. But, this time, you are going to try to have your wax resemble the middle part of an apple. Once your wax is similar to the center of an apple and all of the colorant has melted, you’re ready for the next step.

Scenting the Melted Joy WaxScenting the Melted Joy Wax

Once your wax has been colored you are ready to scent the melted Joy Wax. So, you are going to weigh out 30 grams of the Apple Dumpling Fragrance Oil. Then, add this scent to your candle wax. You will want to stir to incorporate the scent completely before moving to the next step.

Prepare the Candle Wicks for the Apple Dumpling Candle RecipePrepare the Candle Wicks for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe

Next, you are going to want to prepare the candle wicks for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe. You will need your hot glue gun and a stick of hot glue. Now, plug in your glue gun and let it warm up. Once you are ready to use your hot glue, you are going to need to gather two of the CD Candle Wicks for this candle recipe.

Adding the Candle Wicks to Your JarsAdding the Candle Wicks to Your Jars

At this time, you are going be adding the candle wicks to your jars. You will need to move quickly to place the wick before the glue cools. After adding the glue, you will place your wick in the jar and press them into place. Before pushing down your wicks you will want to make sure that they are centered and evenly spaced in the jar. Once both wicks are secured well in the bottom of the jar, you will want to straighten up the wicks. Then, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Filling the Jars for the Apple Dumpling Candle Tutorial

At this point, you are ready to begin filling up the jars for the apple dumpling candle tutorial. Since you are working with Joy Wax, you will want to pour your wax at about 165 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your candle wax has reached this temperature, you can fill your candle with this caramel colored candle wax. Immediately after pouring your candle wax you are going to add your chunks of caramel colored cubes gently into the jar. Be sure to keep your wicks straight as you add the wax cubes.

Let the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe Set UpLet the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe Set Up

Now that your candle jars are filled up, you are going to need to let the candle set up. You can use a skewer or a pencil to hold your candle wicks in the right place. You can wrap your wicks around the skewer/pencil. Then, you are going to leave your candle recipe to let your candle recipe set up completely.

Finally, you will need to clean up your work space to give yourself some room to make this candle recipe.

One more preparation that you are going to want to do is create a double boiler for melting the candle wax. So, you will need a pouring pot and a regular pot. You fill the pot with a few inches of water. Once you fill the pot with water, you will need to place it on the burner. You are going to need to heat the water. When you are ready to melt the candle wax for this recipe, you will put the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax from Nature Garden in the pouring pot.

Weighing Out the Candle Wax

When you are ready to start this recipe, you are going to need to measure out the candle wax for this stacked candle recipe. You will need to weigh out 3 ounces of the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. This will be used to create the yellow colored stars for this pillar candle recipe. Once you have your candle wax weighed out, you are going to add the wax to your pouring pot to melt. You will want to occasionally stir the candle wax until everything is completely melted.

Weighing Out the Candle WaxAdding the Colorants for the First Portion

Once all of your candle wax is melted, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process. So, you are going to need the yellow Color Block and the burnt orange Color Block. You are going to use less than a gram of the yellow candle colorant in your wax. Then, you will want to add a small amount of the burnt orange colorant to the melted wax. This will provide you with the perfect yellowish orange color for your stars. Once the color blocks have completely melted, you will want to stir to incorporate the color before moving on to the next step in the process.

Adding the Fragrance Oil to the Yellow WaxAdding the Fragrance Oil to the Yellow Wax

Now that your color block is incorporated in the melted wax, you are ready to add the fragrance oil! So, remove the pouring pot from the double boiler. Then, you will need to weigh out 0.3 ounces of the Star Fruit Mango Fragrance Oil. Of course, you are going to add this tropical scent to your melted wax and stir to fully incorporate the aroma.

Creating the Yellow StarsCreating the Yellow Stars

Now you are ready to pour your candle wax into the star shaped silicone molds. You are only going to fill each star cavity about halfway full. In total, you will have enough melted wax to fill three of the cavities. Since each of these three cavities is going to need candle wax, you will need to be careful not to fill up one of your star cavities too high.

Removing Yellow Stars From the MoldRemoving Yellow Stars From the Mold

Once your stars have completely set up, you are ready to remove them from the mold. Once each of your yellow stars has been removed from the mold, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Finishing the Yellow StarsFinishing the Yellow Stars

Before you can move on to creating the other stars, you are going to need to create a hole in the center of each star for the candle wick. So, you are going to need a votive wick pin. Now, try to line up the pin with the center of the star and piece through the candle wax. You will want to remove the star from the pin and repeat this part of the process with your two other stars. Now, you will need to set these yellow stars aside for the moment.

Melting Wax for the Peach Stars

Now, you are ready to begin to prepare the peach stars for this scented candle recipe. So, you are going to need to weigh out 3 ounces of the Pillar of Bliss Wax. Then, you will add this candle wax to your clean pouring pot in the double boiler. Once the wax has entirely melted, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Making the Peach Color

Once your candle wax has been completely melted, you are ready to create the color for your recipe. So, you are going to need the peach color block and the scarlet red color block. In order for you to create the peach color, you will need to use half as much red color as you do peach candle color. You are going to need a very small amount, less than a gram of the peach color block for your candle. Then, use about half as much of the red color block as you did the peach color block. You will want to mix the color in thoroughly as the color block melts in your wax.

Making the Peach Color  Scenting the Peach Colored Wax

After you have an even peach color, you are ready to remove the pouring pot from the double boiler. Then, you can add the Star Fruit Mango Fragrance Oil to your melted candle wax. You will need 0.3 ounces of this scent. After mixing the scent into your wax, you are ready for the next step.

Creating the Peach Candle Wax StarsCreating the Peach Candle Wax Stars

Now you are ready to add the melted candle wax to your silicone candle mold. Again, you are going to create three wax stars with the peach colored wax. So, you will need to make sure that you only fill each of the three cavities only about halfway. Once you have your stars poured, you need to let the wax set up completely. Then, you can remove your candle wax stars from the mold. After, you are going to need to use the wick pin to create a hole for the candle wicking. After all three of your peach stars have a hole in the center, you can set these aside and move on to create the last set of stars for your stacked candle recipe.

Melting the Candle Wax for the Red Stars

Now you are going to melt the wholesale candle wax for your last set of stars for this candle recipe. So, you are going to need to weigh out 3 ounces of the wax. Then, add this candle wax to your cleaned pouring pot. You will need to use your double boiler to melt this wholesale wax.

After the Pillar of Bliss Wax has entirely melted you are ready to create the red color for this candle recipe. You are going to need the peach color block and the scarlet red color block. In order to create the red color for your star, you will need to use more of the red candle colorant than the peach. We used less than a gram of the red color block. Further, we used half of much of the peach color block. You will want to stir until the color has melted and is incorporated. Then, you can remove the pouring pot from the double boiler. 

Adding the Star Fruit Mango Scent to the Red Candle WaxAdding the Star Fruit Mango Scent to the Red Candle Wax

Now, you are ready to add the Natures Garden Star Fruit Mango Fragrance Oil to your wax. So, you will need 0.3 ounces of the Star Fruit Mango Fragrance Oil. After adding this scrumptious scented oil to your wax, you will need to stir to incorporate the fragrance fully.

 Finish Creating the Red Stars

Once your candle wax stars have set up completely, you are ready to remove the wax from the mold. Then, you are going to need to use the votive wick pin to create a hole for the wick in the center. Once you have repeated this with all of your red stars, you are ready for the last step.

Putting the Star Fruit Mango Candle Together Putting the Star Fruit Mango Candle Together

Finally, you are ready to begin stacking your candle wax stars! In this example, we will create a candle with three of the stars. So, you will want to thread the wick through the first star to begin creating the candle. Then, place a second star and a third star on top of that one using a different color each time. Finally, you can trim the wick down to size.

Choosing Your Candle Height

While you can create three candles with your candle wax stars, this isn’t your only option with these stacked candles. If you would like you could stack up to six stars with one of our 7 inch wicks. So, you can decide on the height of your candles. We chose to create one candle with three stars and one candle with six stars.
