First, you will need to gather your candle making supplies for this diy candle recipe. Also, you will want to clean your candle making equipment for this recipe. Finally, you will need to clean up your work space to give yourself some room to make this candle recipe.

Prepare the Double Boiler for Melting Candle Wax

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Common Candle Making QuestionsCommon Candle Making Questions

All of us at Natures Garden understand that it can be difficult to create perfect candles. Especially if you have serious scent throw issues popping up, it can be frustrating to put time and money into candles that don’t work that way you want. So, we want to answer some common candle making questions to prevent confusion and save you from all that extra troubleshooting. So, let’s talk about common problems so we can get back to creating gorgeous homemade candles!

Common Candle Making Questions About Candle Wax

First, we are going to talk about questions that often come up in relation to candle wax.

Common Candle Making Questions: How Do You Melt Candle Wax at Home?Common Candle Making Questions: How Do You Melt Candle Wax at Home?

You can use a pouring pot and a stove top to melt your wax at home. Also, we recommend using a double boiler method where you have a larger pot with water in it and set your pouring pot full of wax inside. Turn the stove on to medium and allow the water in your pot to boil. This will safely heat your wax without letting it get too hot.

Common Candle Making Questions: Which is the Best Wax for Candle Making?

Choosing the best wax all depends on preference of what you prefer in a finished candle. First, we have soy waxes that are vegan, gluten free, and natural candle waxes. This is the least expensive wax, has a fantastic cold throw, and has a cleaner burn, but it is tricky to get a great hot throw with some fragrances. Also, Soy Wax often has frosting and a rougher finish.

Next, we have paraffin wax, which has the best scent throw, and is in both the Wow Wax and Joy Wax. The Joy wax uses a mixture of paraffin and soy, so it has a cleaner burn due to the soy wax and a really good hot scent throw due to the paraffin wax. Also, it clings to the candle containers better and has less frosting. An option for creating a translucent candle is gel wax, but it isn’t compatible with all fragrances.

Additionally, you can use palm wax, which comes from sustainable sources, has a beautiful crystal finish, and has a great scent throw. Natures Garden carries sustainable palm container and pillar wax. Lastly, Pillar of Bliss Wax and Palm Pillar wax are great options for creating pillars or wax tarts.

Common Candle Making Questions For Making Soy Candles

Since soy wax is so popular among our customers, we wanted to answer some of the most common questions asked about making soy candles.

Common Candle Making Questions: What is the Best Temperature to Pour Soy Wax?Common Candle Making Questions: What is the Best Temperature to Pour Soy Wax?

This temperature depends on the type of soy wax being used. We recommend pouring our 100% soy wax at 110 degrees Fahrenheit. For the Golden Brands 444 or Golden Brands 464, we suggest pouring at 135 degrees Fahrenheit

Common Candle Making Questions: What is the Best Temperature to Add Fragrance to Soy Wax?

For heavier fragrance oils with high flash points, we recommend adding the scented oil at 185 degrees Fahrenheit. However, lighter fragrances with lower flash points, Ike citrus scents, would be added around 160 degrees Fahrenheit

Common Candle Making Questions: Which Wick is Best for Soy Candles?

Many customers perfer to use a cotton wick for their soy candles. We have two types of cotton wicks available, which are HTP and CD candle wicks.

Common Candle Making Questions: How Do You Make Soy Wax Melts?

Although we don’t carry soy wax in a pillar form for melts, you can still create soy wax melts with container wax. Often, customers will use individual portion cups to package wax melts like these, which can be used to squeeze the wax into the wax burner. This is because it is softer than pillar wax and is difficult to get out of clamshells. However, this wax will not hold the shape from a mold. In fact, it will get stuck in your mold and be difficult to clean.  Another option when making wax melts with a container wax is to add stearic acid to the wax to harden it.

Common Candle Making Questions About Candle Fragrance

Fragrance is important for creating great scented candles, so its important to know how to get your scented candle oil to work for you!

Common Candle Making Questions: Why Don’t My Candles Have a Good Scent Throw?

This issue could have a few different possible causes. First, you may not have added enough fragrance, which should be 1 oz. per pound on average. However, Natures Garden waxes will allow you to add up to 10% in most cases.  Also, your candle may have a clogged wick. This could be due to adding too much fragrance, vybar, or another additive. Also, additives like mica and crayons will clog your wick.

Another possibility is the type of wax you are using. A wax like paraffin will have a better scent throw than soy waxes. Finally, it is possible that you have the wrong size wick. If you wick is too small, then the flame will not be hot enough to get the aroma into the air. On the other hand, a wick that is too large will burn the scent oil before it can be released into the air.

Common Candle Making Questions: What is Vybar Used for in Candle Making?Common Candle Making Questions: What is Vybar Used for in Candle Making?

If you have a poor scent throw and you have tried trouble shooting, then you may want to use vybar. The vybar can be used to increase scent throw by adding some amount between a fourth and a half teaspoon per pound of wax. Just be cautious not to add too much or it can clog your wick and reduce your scent throw. We suggest using Vybar 103 for pillar candles and Vybar 206 for container candles.

Common Candle Making Questions: Why Is Fragrance Oil Settling to the Bottom of the Candle?

If you notice that fragrance is settling at either the top or bottom of your candle, then there could be a few reasons to explain it. First, you’ve added too much fragrance oil. Another option is that the wax you are using isn’t porous enough and you may need a more porous wax. Along with this idea, waxes that have been burned or heated too much may reduce in their ability to hold fragrance.  Finally, you may have not stirred enough to fully incorporate the fragrance oil.

Common Candle Making Questions: Can You Use Essential Oils in a Wax Warmer?Common Candle Making Questions: Can You Use Essential Oils in a Wax Warmer?

While some essential oils can be used in wax warmers, it can be a bit tricky. You need to make sure that they are diluted with either a carrier oil or DPG. Additionally, some essential oils have flashpoints that are too low for a wax warmer. So, you will want to do some testing with the essential oils that you choose.

Common Candle Making Questions About Candle Wicks

Choosing the right wick is another important part of candle making. Otherwise, your candle might not be as effective as it could be.

Common Candle Making Questions: Why is My Candle Wick Drowning Out?Common Candle Making Questions: Why is My Candle Wick Drowning Out?

This could be due to either a small wick or a high candle. First, the wick you used may be too small for a candle of this diameter, which you can use our Candle Wick Chart for reference. Also, your wick could be drowning if you poured your candle wax up too high. You should stop pouring before the wax passes the part of the candle jar that changes shape and begins to curve for the lip.

Common Candle Making Questions: Why Isn’t My Candle Wax Not Burning Evenly All of the Way Down?

Uneven burning could be due to either the wax or the wick. First, the wick may be too small for your candle’s size. Also, the wax that you chose could be too hard. While you could use a softer wax instead, you could also switch to a hotter wick.

Common Candle Making Questions About General Candle Making

Lastly, we have some general questions about making candles that could be useful for crafting perfect candles.

Common Candle Making Questions: Sometimes I Follow All Recommendations and I Still Can’t Seem to Get it Right. Why is That?

There are many factors that can influence the outcome of your homemade candles. First, fragrance oils can impact a candle, as thicker scented oils require you to wick up to get a hotter burn. Also, the room temperature can effect your candles. If the room is too cold, then you can have more issues with glass adhesion and frosting because your candle will setup very quickly.

Additionally, you could have an issue where the scent doesn’t smell as strong because you are used to it. When you are around a scent for too long, your nose will adjust and you won’t notice it as much. If this happens to you, then don’t worry too much just take a break from the scent for awhile and your nose will recognize it again after a long enough break.

Common Candle Making Questions: Why are My Layers Bleeding in my Candle?

This color issue could have one of a few different causes. First, the layers were too hot. If you don’t wait long enough or pour your wax too soon, then the layers can melt one another and start to run into one another. Also, it could be due to over saturating your candle with fragrance, as the extra scented oil will blend with colorant and bring the color with it as it seeps out of the candle.

Common Candle Making Questions: Can I Use Mica in Candles?Common Candle Making Questions: Can I Use Mica in Candles?

We recommend that you don’t mix mica into the candle itself, because it will clog the wick. But, you can use mica to decorate the outside of pillar candles! After your pillar is created you can then, use the mica on the outer portion of your candle. This shimmery mixture can be used to provide a beautiful sparkle on the outside of your candles.

Common Candle Making Questions: Can Mica be used in Wax Melts?

Sure! Since we don’t have to worry about clogging the wick, you can mix it straight into the candle wax.

 

Common Candle Making Questions: How Do I Get Rid of the Air Bubbles in My Candles?

There are a few reasons why air bubbles could get trapped in your candles, which include water exposure and pouring at a cooler temperature. So, how do you prevent air bubble in a homemade candle? First, keep water away from your work station. Also, you can try pouring your wax at a hotter temperature. Further, pour your candle wax slowly and make sure to stop before you hit pour point where your jar begins to change shape. 

Common Candle Making Questions: Can You Melt Old Candles to Make New Ones?Common Candle Making Questions: Can You Melt Old Candles to Make New Ones?

We don’t recommend re-purposing old candles to make new ones. While this may seem like a create idea to take all you half used candles and make a new one, the scent is a big concern in this case. If these candles are scented, then they will already contain fragrance oil. Once you melt your old candles, the scent may fade, but many of the wax particles are still holding on to some of the scent oil. This means that you won’t be able to add enough fragrance oil without over saturating your candle. Since the candle already is holding scent, this extra fragrance will seep out and sit on the top of your candle, which is dangerous and can result in a flame that is too large.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Weights and Amounts

3 ounces of the Joy Wax

30 grams of the Sunflower Wax

3 grams of the Plumeria Fragrance Oil

A tiny bit of the Burgundy Liquid Candle Dye

A Few Drops of the Purple Liquid Candle Dye

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Sanitize and Prepare Your Work Space

Before you begin creating your scented candles, you will want to organize and clean your work space. You can start by making sure you have enough space to work on your candle. Also, you will need to wipe down your work space. Next, you will want to gather your supplies and equipment. If any of your equipment is dirty, then make sure that you wash them before beginning your project. After everything has been cleaned and prepared, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Prepare Double Boiler

For this recipe, you are going to need a double boiler. If you know how to create a double boiler for candlemaking, then move on to your recipe. Otherwise, we can explain to you how it works. Since you will need to use an pouring pot, this will act as the inner portion of your double boiler. The pouring pot will hold your melting wax and will be placed inside the larger pot. The larger pot will hold the heated water. Now that the double boiler has been made, it will be placed on the stove top on medium heat to melt your wax.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Get the Sunflower Wax Ready

First, you will need to use the double boiler to melt the Sunflower Wax. So, weigh out 30 grams of this wax and add it to the double boiler. As the wax melts, you should be mixing every so often. While the double boiler will help prevent scorching, you should keep an eye on it and stir occasionally. After your wax has entirely melted, you will be ready to move on to the next steps for coloring and scenting.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Adding the Candle ColorantPlumeria Candle Recipe: Adding the Candle Colorant

Then, you will be adding some candle colorant to your melted Sunflower Wax. Since we are going to be adding less than a drop of the liquid dye, we will need a toothpick to add this amount. So, take the toothpick and dip it into the purple Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye to your Sunflower Wax. Then, you will need to swirl the dipped toothpick in the melted wax. Make sure that you mix this well to fully incorporate the color.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Scent the Sunflower WaxPlumeria Candle Recipe: Scent the Sunflower Wax

Next, you are going to want to scent your freshly melted wax.  We will be using Plumeria Fragrance Oil, which is perfect for this candle and has a gorgeous floral scent. This fragrance is a sweet, fruity floral aroma that is composed of tropical Plumeria flowers, fresh fruity top notes, on a lovely green bottom. So, take three grams of this delightful candle oil and add it to the melted Sunflower Oil.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Preparing Your Flower Parts

Now,  you are going to start preparing the wax for your flower candle embeds. This wax will need to be a thin layer, which we will use to cut out the flowers. One way you can create this is pouring a small amount into the bottom of a mold, like the square loaf mold. Alternatively, you can line a pan with wax paper and pour a thin layer of wax in this. Either way, you will need to remove the wax at a point where it has set up but still warm.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Cut Out Your Flower PartsPlumeria Candle Recipe: Cut Out Your Flower Parts

Once your thin layers of wax are set up, you will want to cut out your petals and circles. You can use a knife, toothpick, or anything that you have that is pointy and tough enough to cut out your shapes. Also, you will need to have two circles and about twelve or so petals. The exact number of petals you will need depends on their size. Since you will need a couple extra petals on top of the candle, you will want to make a few extra petals. So, the exact number that you need for your flowers isn’t extremely important yet.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Creating the Other Flower PartsPlumeria Candle Recipe: Creating the Other Flower Parts

Now, you are going to need to repeat these previous steps using two different colors. For one of the rounds you will use one drop of purple liquid candle colorant. After these pieces are created, you can move on to the last set of flower parts. The last round will be colored with a tiny amount of the burgundy candle colorant. Again, you can use a toothpick to add this color to your melted Sunflower Wax.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Prepare the Candle JarPlumeria Candle Recipe: Prepare the Candle Jar

Before we start adding the candle wax to the container, you will need to prepare the candle jar. So, heat up your hot glue gun to adhere two of the CD-12 candle wicks to the bottom of your jar. You will want to make sure that they are as straight and even as possible. Otherwise, your finished candle won’t burn evenly and could result in tunneling. Plus, awkwardly placed wicks could ruin the pretty design! So, it would be best to be careful on this step.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Prepare the Purple LayerPlumeria Candle Recipe: Prepare the Purple Layer

Now, we are ready to create the first layer for our scented candle. We will start by weighing 3 ounces of Joy Wax and melting it in the double boiler. Remember to mix the melting wax every so often. Once this is melted we are going to add in the colorant. Put two drops of the purple Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye into the melted wax and stir to fully incorporate the color.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Pouring the Bottom LayerPlumeria Candle Recipe: Pouring the Purple Layer

Next, you are going to scent and pour the purple layer. So, add 0.3 ounces of the Plumeria Fragrance Oil to the melted purple wax and mix to incorporate the scent. After, you are ready to pour this layer into the jar. Once this layer has been carefully poured into the jar you will need to straighten your wicks before the wax sets up. You may want to have something across the top of the jar to steady your wicks.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Adding the Wax Embed Flowers Plumeria Candle Recipe: Adding the Wax Embed Flowers

Now, you are ready to start setting up your embed flowers. So, you are going to begin adhering your flower parts to the jar. Start by pressing one of your circles to the inside of the glass jar. Make sure that you hold the wax circle in place by pressing gently until it has completely adhered. Then, adhere the petals of a different color around the circle in a similar fashion to the picture to the left. You will continue to evenly space out the rest of your flowers around the jar. We had six flowers total, but this amount may vary depending on the size of your petals.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Preparing the White LayerPlumeria Candle Recipe: Preparing the White Layer

Next, you are going to create the white layer for behind your wax flower embeds. So, weigh out 11 ounces of Joy Wax and add it to the apothecary jar. You will need to melt the wax using the double boiler method with occasional mixing. After, you will need to add 1.1 ounces of the Plumeria Fragrance Oil. Before you go to pour in this layer you need to measure the temperature. Otherwise, you could possibly melt and mess up your wax flower embeds! Use a thermometer to determine when your wax has dropped to about 150 F, which is a safe temperature range to pour your white layer. Once it reaches this temperature you can pour in this layer.

Plumeria Candle Recipe: Allow the White Layer to Set UpPlumeria Candle Recipe: Allow the White Layer to Set Up

Now that you poured in the white layer into the base of your candle, your creation is nearly complete! Just make sure that both of your wicks are centered. Make sure that you center your wicks before this white layer completely sets up. Then, you just need to wait for this top layer to harden and set up. Once your white layer has set up you can move on to creating the whipped topping.

Next, we are going to create the whipped wax topping for this candle. So, weigh out 8 ounces of Joy Wax and put it into the apothecary pot. After the wax has completely melted, you can add 0.8 ounces of the Plumeria Fragrance Oil. After, let your wax begin to set up. Before it completely sets up, you will need to whip the wax. Once the wax is well whipped and before it completely sets up, you can put the wax on top of the base of your candle.

Immediately after adding your whipped wax you will want to start adding your extra petals to the top of your candle. This will make sure that your petals stick to the candle and won’t fall off. So, start taking your differently colored petals and placing them on top of the candle. Make sure that you press them lightly into the wax, so they are able to stay in place. Once all your petals have been placed, use a pencil to curl your two candle wicks.

Finally, your candles are complete! But, you are going to want to wait a day or two for your candle to cure before using your candle. While it can be tempting to use your candle early, it will be worth the wait and work so much better after letting it cure! Allowing your candle to cure for 24-48 hours will give the wax time to absorb the scent and provide a better scent throw.

If you love the aroma of the Plumeria Fragrance Oil, then you may want to learn more about the history of this gorgeous, tropical flower. One interesting fact about these exotic flowers is that their origin was not actually Hawaii. While the gorgeous Plumeria flowers are commonly associated with these exotic islands, these were actually brought to Hawaii from Mexico in the nineteenth century. However, this beautiful flower has been incorporated in many lovely, tropical lands, like Hawaii, the Carribean, Indonesia, and many others!

Neapolitan Candle RecipeNeapolitan Candle Recipe

Did you know that Neapolitan ice cream originated in the late 19th century in Italy? Most likely in the city of Naples. Italy was actually the originator or all ice cream, or gelato if you will. Neapolitan ice cream was actually inspired by Spumoni. Spumoni is a three flavored ice cream that used pistachio, cherry and chocolate ice cream with a fruit and nut layer in between. So why vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate? When ice cream made it’s way to the states these were the most popular flavors at the time. And in elementary school, do you remember sampling freeze-dried Neapolitan Ice Cream that the astronauts were able to take with them into space? I can remember! The texture was crumbly and it melted quickly the minute it touched your tongue, but I’ll stick to the regular Neapolitan ice cream thank you very much! Who doesn’t love this classic flavor?  You have three yummy flavors all in one bite! Today, Nature’s Garden is sharing with you their Neapolitan Candle Recipe. An eye-catching layered candle recipe to mimic this classic, old-time ice cream.  When you have finished creating this fun new candle, check out an easy recipe for Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich Cake! It’s truly magnifico!

  • Mixing Spoon
  • Stove
  • Scale
  • Toothpicks
  • Paper Bowl
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue Sticks
  • Pecans Mold (flexiblemolds.com)

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: The 3 Fragrance OilsFor this candle recipe, we will be using three different Nature’s Garden fragrance oils for the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla layers of your homemade candle. For the chocolate layer, we have chosen German Chocolate Cake Fragrance Oil. It smells of rich chocolate cake with hints of pecans, vanilla, and coconut.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Fragrance Oil

Next, we have Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil. This is a perfect blend of sweet strawberries and the tangy scent of rhubarb and an undertone of flaky pie crust.

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil

Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil

The last oil is Vanilla Insanity fragrance oil. The strongest vanilla scent that we offer!  It is a sweet vanilla scent with notes of French Vanilla, creamed butter, cotton candy, maple sugar, and of course, vanilla beans.

All three of these fragrances will blend and compliment each other as your candle burns through the layers. You will have a house smelling of an Italian bakery!

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare wax for the Strawberry Embeds Part 1

We will be using our Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax for our embeds.  Pillar of Bliss is a soy and paraffin blend that has wonderful scent retention as well as a wonderful cold and hot throw. To work with Pillar of Bliss, melt the wax to a temperature of 195 degrees F and add your color. Let the wax cool to 180 degrees Fahrenheit before adding your fragrance and let it cool to 175 degrees Fahrenheit before pouring into your molds. When melting any kind of wax, though, we suggest the double boiler method. Place on your stove, an old cake pan or pot with at least a 1/2 inch of water, place your pouring pot inside the cake pan or pot to create a double boiler.

For our Neapolitan Candle Recipe, we need to first prepare the strawberry embeds that will top your candle. Using a double boiler, melt 2 grams of Pillar of Bliss candle Wax.

Prepare the Strawberry Embeds:  Adding the Candle Dye

Prepare the Strawberry Embeds:  Adding the Candle DyeYou always want to be careful adding candle dye to your creation. Our Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye is concentrated and a little can go a long way.  Always start small to test the color you are trying to achieve. We suggest using toothpicks for this process. So take a toothpick, dip into the green Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. Now you dip the toothpick into the melted wax. Mix to incorporate the color.

 

Then you fill only the leaf portion of the strawberries embed mold. Let this cool down and harden.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the wax for the Strawberries Embed Part 2

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the wax for the Strawberries Embed Part 2Next, we need to prepare the red wax for the strawberries. Using your double boiler, melt 10 grams of Pillar of Bliss, stirring to help with the melting process. Take your toothpick, dip it into your red Spectrum Liquid candle dye and add it to your melted wax.  Next, add 1 gram of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil and stir to incorporate it. Now you can add this melted wax to into the remaining portion of the strawberry cavity. Allow this to setup before removing from the mold. Set your strawberry aside to top your candle later.

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan Embeds

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan EmbedsNow we are going to work on our pecan embeds. First, you need to weigh out 20 grams of Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Then, using your double boiler melt the wax, stirring occasionally. Once this has melted, use a toothpick to add a tiny bit of brown Spectrum liquid candle dye and yellow Spectrum liquid candle dye. Stir to incorporate this and then pour into your pecan embed mold.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Pecan Embeds
You will make 6 pecans total. Allow your pecan embeds to cool and setup.  Once they have setup, remove your pecans from the mold and set them aside
.  We will need them when we begin topping our candle later.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepping your Candle Jar

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepping your Candle JarNow you will want to prepare your candle jar. First and foremost you will need to have the correct size wick for your jar of choice. Prior to ordering wicks, measure the diameter of your jar. The size of your wick depends on the diameter of your jar. We are going to use 2 CD-10 size wicks. CD wicks are our most popular candle wicks. They are easy to work with and give a nice, clean burn for your candle. If you need further assistance with figuring out your wick size, check the description of the wicks for size recommendations based on the diameter of your jar. Once you have chosen your wick, you will use your hot glue gun to firmly adhere the wicks to the bottom of your container. Simply dab a bit of glue to the bottom of the metal part of your wick and press it firmly to the bottom of your jar. Repeat the process for the second wick. Keep in mind that as your candle cools, adjust your wicks so that they are straight and stay centered.

Another trick that you can do to make pouring your wax easier is to warm your jar beforehand. Simply turn your oven on to the lowest temperature, place the container on a cookie sheet and place in the oven. You do not want your jar hot, Just warm and still easy to handle without burning yourself. Warming your jars prior to pouring into them will help the wax adhere to the jars better.  This will help eliminate the wet spot look.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate Wax

Let’s talk Joy Wax. Nature’s Garden Joy Wax is a blend of soy and paraffin that is amazingly easy to work with. It melts beautifully and sets up smooth and creamy. You also get an awesome cold and hot scent throw! When working with Joy Wax, we suggest melting to 200 degrees F. You can add your candle dye at this temperature, but allow it cool to a temperature of 170-175 degrees Fahrenheit before adding your fragrance. When your wax has cooled to 160-165 Fahrenheit you can pour your wax into your container of choice.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate WaxWeigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt using your double boiler. Once this has melted you will need to add a tiny amount of brown Spectrum liquid candle dye using your toothpick. You are going for a chocolate color. Mix this to blend well. When your wax has cooled to the suggested 170 degrees F you may now add 9 grams of German Chocolate Fragrance Oil. Stir well to incorporate the fragrance.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the  First Layer of Chocolate Wax

 

Next,  pour the candle wax into your prepared jar.You need to allow this wax to cool and set, adjusting your wicks so they stay centered in your candle jar.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare the First Layer of Strawberry Wax

Next, melt 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt in your double boiler. Once again, using a toothpick, add a tiny bit of red liquid candle dye to your melted wax and blend well. You are going for a pink color for this layer.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

 

 

Allow the wax to cool to the suggested temperature and then add 9 grams of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil. Stir this to blend the oil and wax well.

 

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

 

 

Pour this candle wax directly on top of your chocolate layer and allow this layer to cool adjusting your wicks as it sets up before moving on.

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare The First Layer of Vanilla Wax

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

Now we are going to create the vanilla layer of our candle. Once again, weigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt in your double boiler.

 

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare The First Layer of Vanilla Wax

Once this has fully melted and cooled to 170 degrees, add 9 grams of Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil. Stir well to blend the fragrance and melted wax.

 

 

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Prepare The First Layer of Vanilla Wax

 

Pour the white wax directly on top of the pink wax and once again, allowing this layer to cool and harden, adjusting your wicks straight before moving on.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Chocolate Layer

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Chocolate LayerNow, it’s time to work on the second half of the candle. We will start with the chocolate layer. Weigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt the candle wax in your double boiler. Once it has completely melted, add the brown Spectrum liquid candle dye using the toothpick method. Stir to incorporate the colorant and once the wax has cooled to the correct temperature, add 9 grams of German Chocolate Cake fragrance oil and stir well to combine. Pour this wax on top of your cooled and set strawberry layer. Allow this to cool and set up before moving on.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Strawberry Layer

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Preparing the Second Strawberry LayerNext, it’s time for the second strawberry layer. Weigh out 90 grams of Joy Wax and melt the Joy Wax in the double boiler. Once that has melted completely you can add in your toothpick of red Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye and mix to combine. Once again, allow the wax to cool before adding in 9 grams of Strawberry Rhubarb Fragrance Oil and mix well. Pour this strawberry layer onto the chocolate layer and allow to cool and harden before moving on.

 

Neapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped WaxNeapolitan Candle Recipe: Adding the White Whipped Wax

Next comes the “whipped cream” for your candle. First, weigh out 150 grams of Joy Wax and once again, melt it in your double boiler. Once this is completely melted and cooled, add 15 grams of Vanilla Insanity Fragrance Oil and stir well to incorporate the scent. Carefully pour into your mixing container and allow this melted candle wax to begin to setup. Now, begin whipping the wax to a frosting-like consistency.

 

Next, top your candle with the whipped wax giving it the look of a whipped cream topped sundae and then place your strawberry and pecan embeds on top for the final touch! You may want to use your candle right away, but it is suggested to allow your candle to cure for about 3 days.  Then, trim your wicks to about 1/4″ before burning your homemade candle.

So would you like a cool looking cake to go along with your cool looking candle? Check out this very easy recipe for Neapolitan Ice Cream from Food Network. This amazing looking dessert is created with yummy layers of ice cream sandwiches, strawberry and mint chocolate ice cream and topped off with a chocolate hard shell topping. The colors of the ice cream are reminiscent of the original Neapolitan ice cream when it was first created but I believe you can use any flavors you choose. This recipe is perfectly easy and impressive! I know I am impressed with how it looks and I am also pretty sure I am ready for some dessert!

Soy Candle RecipesSoy Candle Recipes

We at Natures Garden created this blog to discuss the differences between our three soy waxes and share our best Soy Candle Recipes.

So, let’s talk a little bit about soy wax!  Soy wax is a natural vegetable wax that is created from soybeans. Plus, this wax is environmentally friendly and a renewable resource. So, we can all feel good creating  our scented candle masterpieces. Plus, this wax really isn’t just good for the environment, it can be used to make some great scented candles! They burn slower and cleaner than a candle made from paraffin wax. So, there is less soot left over as the candle burns and you even get a longer lasting candle! Plus, the wax is one of the most enjoyable waxes to work with! It comes in an easy to use form that makes weighing out and clean up super easy! It comes in flakes form instead of a slab.

Soy Candle Recipes Different Types of Soy Waxes

We at Natures Garden have three types of soy wax available, which are Golden Foods 444, Golden Foods 464, and NG 100% Soy Wax (Golden Foods 415).While all of these candle making options are made up of natural soy wax, there are a few slight differences between the types of soy wax that we carry. Some have varying melting points or have a different allowance for scent load, but each has a different set of characteristics that make it unique. A wax may have better qualities in one area, while another type has better qualities in a different area. So, choosing the right wax for you is all about figuring out what you value in a soy candle and which wax suits your needs best. So, let’s discover your favorite type of soy candle wax!

Soy Candle Recipes Terms for Soy Wax

As we discuss the benefits and drawbacks to our different types of soy waxes you can choose from, there may be some specific terms that you will want to know. It is important to know what we mean when we refer to these things to get a better idea of what you will be getting into.

First, we have the possibility of candle frost. This occurs in soy wax where the appearance on parts of the jar look lighter or even white. While this doesn’t impact the quality of the burn or scent, it may impact the appearance. Additionally, there is the possibility for wet spots to occur in your candles. This is when the wax cools too quickly in the jar and the wax doesn’t adhere to the jar in some places. This will look like some air or water became trapped between the wax and the container. Further, tunneling could be a problem where the wick is too small for the jar and isn’t able to heat the wax at edges of the jar.

Soy Candle Recipes NG 100% Soy WaxSoy Candle Recipes NG 100% Soy Wax

First of all, we have the NG 100% Soy Wax, which is known as Golden Foods 415 Soy Wax. This original soy wax is 100% pure soy without a single additive. This 100% soy wax is all natural and all regular soy. While this wax is just plain soy, it has a few interesting qualities.

Firstly, the melting point of this type of soy wax is 120-125 degrees Fahrenheit. This fairly high melt point provides some beneficial properties for your homemade candles. This higher melt point allows the wax to carry a higher fragrance load of up to 12% of fragrance oil per pound of wax.Thus, you can make a stronger scented candle than the typical 10% allowance for candles. Further, the higher melt point of this wax will help those that may be shipping candles in hotter temperatures. Also, this pure soy wax can be blended with other waxes, such as paraffin, beeswax, or any microcrystalline waxes.

Soy Candle Recipes Leopard Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Leopard Candle Recipe

This candle making idea takes advantage of the agreeability of soy wax with waxes like beeswax. Since beeswax is a harder wax that has a higher melt point than this pure soy wax, it was perfect for creating designs. These embedded candles use the beeswax to create the leopard print pattern. After, the regular soy wax was added to the jar to fill up the candle and hold all of the leopard print spots in place.

Next, we have a candle recipe that uses soy wax to create the grass effect on top. You simply beat the candle batter until you achieve a thicker consistency. Then, you can add it to your homemade candle. This will create the effect of more realistic grass with dirt underneath. Perfect for the football field inspired candle!

Soy Candle Recipes Citronella Soy Wax Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Citronella Soy Wax Candle Recipe

Another great way to use this type of soy wax is a regular type of candle. Our Citronella Soy Wax Candle Recipe has a typical candle appearance with an unforgettably strong scent. This fragrance oil has a crazy strong aroma that creates a perfect citronella candle for the outdoors. Say goodbye to bugs and hello to your perfect soy wax scented candle!

Soy Candle Recipes Massage Candle Recipe Soy Candle Recipes Massage Candle Recipe

One great thing about using pure soy wax is that it is considered a natural moisturizing agent! So, adding this wax to a massage candle is perfect! The natural soy wax works together with the butters and oils to soften your skin during a relaxing massage. It is a perfect recipe for candles for massage therapy.

Soy Candle Recipes Green Beer Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Green Beer Candle Recipe

Also, you can use the 415 soy wax in this fun beer themed candle! This recipe utilizes the lower pouring temperature of the wax, which creates a thicker pour. This is helpful for making some kinds of toppings, like the foam on our beer candle! We can mix the wax as it cools to create a fluffy consistency that looks just like the foam on top of a pint of beer.

 

Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 444Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 444

Also, we have a second soy wax alternative that is available for use in candle making. This next wax is Golden Foods Soy Wax 444, which is regular, natural soy wax with an additive. This additional ingredient is a soy based additive that is mixed to the soy wax. While this wax has the same type of wax, this additive helps to solve some of the issue you may come across when using the the 415 soy wax. So, we will go over some of the benefits to using this alternative type of soy wax.

First, this wax will increase your pour temperature during candle making. An issue that comes up with the pure soy wax is pouring too hot can cause issues with appearance. Meaning that the problem of the getting the slushy state pouring with the natural soy wax at the suggested 110 degrees Fahrenheit, can be solved with this wax. Thanks to this additive, you are able to pour this 444 soy wax at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that your wax will still be in a fluid form when you pour and the candle will have a smoother appearance. This difference is partially due to the fact that this type of soy wax will reduce frosting, so you don’t have to worry about cooling the wax to a slushie state to reduce this effect.

Also, the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 provides you with a higher melt point than the other alternative soy wax. This wax has a melt point between 120- 125 degrees Fahrenheit, which will provide you with a few benefits. First, you will be able to raise the fragrance oil allowance in your candle to up to 12% of your scent per pound. So, you will be able to create a stronger scented candle. Second, your candles will be less likely to melt when the weather gets hotter. So, it will be safer to ship candles as they will be less likely to melt in hot temperatures.

Soy Candle Recipes Zebra Candle RecipeSoy Candle Recipes Zebra Candle Recipe

Again, we are using the higher melting point of beeswax to help create a cute candle design! We only use the beeswax for the red portion, which will be used for the zebra stripes. This will help prevent the wax from melting after the rest of the candle is added to the jar. Meaning, you shouldn’t have smears or running colors that could have been caused by the, melting of the red wax.

Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 464Soy Candle Recipes Golden Foods Soy Wax 464

Another natural wax that you can use instead of the pure soy option is the Golden Brands Soy Wax 464. This wax is one of the two alternatives that we carry for candle makers. While this wax is similar to the other alternative wax as they both contain a soy based additive. This wax has some similarities and differences with these other waxes.

Just like with the 444 soy wax, this type of soy wax will have an increased pour temperature, which is at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the original soy wax has to be poured at a lower temperature, this wax will become a slushy consistency by the time you can pour. However, this wax alternative will pour at a temperature where the wax remains liquid. So, the candle will be smooth, like the 444 soy wax candles.

Additionally, this type of wax has been made to reduce the frosting that comes with soy wax. While this frosting isn’t harmful, it does impact the appearance of your candle.

The main difference between the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 and the Golden Foods Soy Wax 464 is the melting point. While the 444 soy wax has a higher melting point, like the original soy wax, the 464 soy wax is not the same. Instead, the 464 soy wax has a melt point of 115-120 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a few degrees lower than the other waxes. This means that you should be monitor the weather more careful to prevent the candles from getting too hot and melting. However, this lower melt point allows for a better glass adhesion in the finished candle!

While the maximum scent load for this wax is about 10-12%. We suggest that you have the fragrance oil at 10% of the wax to reduce the possibility of fragrance oil seepage.

Soy Candle Recipes Advice for Making Soy Candles

There are some possible issues that apply to all soy wax candles, so some advice may be helpful. First, you may have issues with the scent throw of soy wax candles. While this is the nature of soy wax, there are a few things you can do to maximize your scent throw. You can try increasing your wick size, however be careful not to go too large or you can burn the fragrance oil off before it hits the air.  Also, make sure that you have added the maximum amount of fragrance. While each fragrance will be different, most will use 1.5 ounces of fragrance oil per pound. Second, you can reduce wet spots by heating the jar before pouring your wax. This will allow the wax to have time to better adhere. Finally, you can reduce frosting by heating the jar as it allows your wax to cool slower.
