Make Preparations and Sanitize Your Work Space

Before you can begin creating your homemade candle recipe you will want to make sure that you are ready to make your scented candle recipe. 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.

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.

Adding the Candle Colorant for the Red Stars

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.

Pouring the Red Star Fruit Mango Candle WaxPouring the Red Star Fruit Mango Candle Wax

Now, you are ready to pour the candle wax into the silicone mold. Again, you will need to create three stars. So, you will be filling each of these three cavities to about the halfway mark. Then, you will need to wait for the candle wax to set up.

 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.

Star Fruit and Mango Tart Recipe

If you love the aroma of this homemade scented candle, then you will love this scrumptious food recipe! The Star Fruit and Kiwi Tart with Mango recipe from Woodland Foods is a delicious recipe that is a unique and exotic dessert recipe that you will be sure to enjoy. The exotic and unique flavor of the star fruit perfectly complements the sweet mango and apricot flavors along with the flavor of tart kiwi. Further, this tasty treat has a layer of delicious cream cheese on a pleasing tart crust.

We at Natures Garden have been making candles for quite a long time. We know that there are tons of ways to make candles and have a ton of unique homemade candle ideas.

In this blog, we will discuss all kinds of different molds that you can use to make candles. Some of these molds are specifically for making types of candles, but you can use some types of soap molds, baking molds, and embed molds, too!
