9 Soy Candle Recipes 9 Soy Candle Recipes

If you are interested in candle making and are new to the craft, creating a candle may seem like an easy process. Well, it is easy, once you have done some research and Nature’s Garden can help you out. We have 9 soy candle recipes that use the three types of soy wax that we carry. These recipes are fun and creative and are easy to follow. Not only will you see that making your own candle can be easy, but making the world smell good is a very important job!

There are many factors that go into making a candle that will not only burn properly but will have a good hot and cold throw. Once you start doing research on candle making, then it can seem a bit overwhelming. What type of wick do you use? Which one burns the best? What type of wax do I want to use? I know I want soy wax, but what kind of soy wax? What does it mean melt point? When do I add the fragrance? How much color do I add? Not to worry, folks! Nature’s Garden is here for you and can answer all those questions for you.

9 Soy Candle Recipes: The Soy Waxes9 Soy Candle Recipes: The Soy Waxes

Not all soy wax is created equal. There are differences in the melt temperatures, hot and cold throws, and in appearances. Before we get started on our soy candle recipes, let me familiarize you with the different soy waxes we have. We have three types that we will discuss: NG 100% Soy Wax, Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 and Golden Foods Soy Wax 464.

As we all know, Soy Wax is produced from soybeans. It is a pure and natural vegetable wax that is considered kosher. Not only is this wax non-toxic, but it is also biodegradable. In fact, soy wax is very environmentally friendly and is made from a renewable resource. Candles made from soy wax are very clean burning. Something that is of importance in this day and age.  There is a reduction in soot, and due to the makeup of soy itself, the burn time of a soy wax increases. Soy Wax candles will burn slower and cooler compared to a straight paraffin wax candle.

All of Nature’s Garden soy waxes are sold in flake style. Most people find this type easier to work with. Granulated waxes have a tendency to be messier. They are all-natural so you can rest assured that you are going to have a clean burning candle in your home and for your customers. You will also note, that your finished candles may have a rough exterior. They may not look smooth and creamy. Well, it is a natural wax, therefore you will have a more natural finish. If this is not the look you would like it can be easily solved with a few tricks to help give your candles a more professional look!

9 Soy Candle Recipes:  NG 100% Soy Wax (GF 415)9 Soy Candle Recipes:  NG 100% Soy Wax 415

NG 100% Soy Wax 415 is straight soy. There are no additives to enhance the hot or cold throw. Therefore, soy wax is perfect in massage candles or any other type of recipe that is applied to the body. The melt point for 415 Soy is 120-125 degrees Fahrenheit. This higher melt point allows this wax to carry a higher fragrance load. You can also blend this soy wax with other waxes such as beeswax, paraffin or microcrystalline waxes.

9 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 9 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 

Our next wax is our Golden Foods Soy Wax 444. This is a popular seller here at Nature’s Garden. So what makes this wax different? Well, there are soy based additives added to this wax. That still makes it a natural wax, however, these additives help increase pour temperature, helps reduce frosting issues and give a smoother finish to your candle’s appearance. The scent throw, both hot and cold, are improved also. You may also blend this wax with other waxes such as paraffin or microcrystalline waxes. The 444 Soy Wax also has a higher melt point and can hold up to 12% scent per pound, making a stronger scented candle.  However, you should always test as not all fragrance oils can be used at this percentage and may seep.  

9 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 4649 Soy Candle Recipes: Golden Foods Soy Wax 464

Lastly, we have our Golden Foods Soy Wax 464. This is a very popular candle wax. While this wax is similar to our Golden Foods Soy Wax 444, the main difference will be the melt point. The 464 Soy wax has a lower melt point and this allows for better glass adhesion in the finished candle. Another difference would be the maximum scent load for this wax which is 10-12% of scent per pound of wax. We do suggest keeping the fragrance percent at 10 to reduce the possibility of fragrance oil seepage.

Before you get started on creating any of our recipes, follow this link to How to Make Soy Candles. This is a free candle class that can be downloaded or printed. In this class, you can learn about wicks, pour lines, scenting the wax, pour temps and more. And now that we are familiar with the different types of soy waxes, let’s move on to our soy candle recipes and get you inspired to start candle creating!
