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. While some Candle Making Molds are obvious choices, there are other mold options that you may not have realized you can use with wax. 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!

First, we have the Round Pillar Candle Mold from Natures Garden. This mold is perfect for your diy pillar candles. This mold will produce more traditionally shaped pillars, which is circular. Also, it is all in one piece and is seamless, which produces a better quality candle. Also, you can purchase one of two sizes for your homemade pillar candles, which are  3 x 4 1/2″ or 3 x 6 1/2″. Further, this pillar has a perfect mold release!

We have used this mold to create the Ice Candle Recipe! This homemade candle recipe actually uses ice to create unique patterns in the candle wax. After the ice melts and dries, the candle is left with pockets where the ice used to be! Such a unique candle idea using our Ice Capade Fragrance Oil!

If you would like to create a larger type of candle, then this may be a great mold for you! While this mold can be used to create amazing candles, the Votive Candle Wick Pin will be a must! This will create a place for your wick that is straight and perfectly centered. Further, this pin will be very important for candles that use molds rather than containers, for example, soap molds or votive molds.

Clove Fragrance OilClove Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Clove Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden embodies the distinct aroma of spicy cloves.  Cloves are the budding flowers of trees in the family Myrtaceae.  While native to Indonesia, cloves are commercially harvested in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Madagascar, Zanzibar, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania.  Cloves are available throughout the year.  The clove tree is an evergreen that grows 8-12 meters in height.  Cloves are dried by the time they are used as spices, which is what gives their dark brown appearance.  While the cloves themselves are growing, they shift from yellow to green, and finally to bright red in color.  The final bright red color indicates that the cloves are ready to be harvested.  Cloves are highly aromatic and flavorful and are used in a wide variety of foods.  The spice pairs well with cinnamon, allspice, and vanilla, and can be found in pumpkin pie spice and several variations of herbal tea.  Check out Clove Fragrance Oil today and see all the wonderful ways you can enjoy this fragrance!

What Does Clove Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Clove Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is an aromatic spice fragrance that will be a staple in your product line.  Clove Fragrance Oil is a strong-scented clove aroma with hints of other spices, such as cinnamon and ginger.

How Do Our Customers Use Clove Fragrance Oil?

Clove Fragrance Oil is a strong spice scent that will give a warm lift to your atmosphere. Create a “cozy home” feel by creating amazing room scenting products with this fragrance oil.  Room scenters can incorporate up to 50% of this strong fragrance oil in projects like incense, smelly jelly jars, and potpourri.  This fragrance oil is also strong in aroma beads.  Homemade candle crafters can use Clove Fragrance Oil up to 10% with vegetable waxes and paraffin wax.  This scent will perform perfectly in Joy Wax, Wow Wax, and is nice and strong in soy waxes.  If you wish to color your candles, we would recommend four drops of brown Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye per 4 pounds of candle wax.  You can also color your melted wax with a small amount of brown color blocks.  Do not use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Many customers mix our Clove Fragrance Oil with other scents to create their own unique blends.  One customer states, “I love the smell of cloves. I use essential clove oil and this one. It is super strong, which I love. Mixes very well with cinnamon, orange, apple pie and other fruit blends. It is one of my best selling scents. Go for the big bottle, it is more than worth it.”

Clove Fragrance Oil is not body safe, so unfortunately you cannot include this fragrance in your bath and body products.

CD Candle Wicks (100 wicks)

Disposable Pipettes

1- 16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar

Bacon-Candle-Step-1Using a hot glue gun, glue two CD-12 wicks to the apothecary jar.  Make sure they are place equally apart in the candle jar.
For the next step you will need three ziplock bags.  In each of the 3 bags, weigh out 120 grams of Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.

 

Now, add 12 grams of Nature’s Garden Bacon Fragrance Oil to each bag.
Next, we are going to color the wax using Natures Garden Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. This candle colorant will be added straight to the ziplock bag just like you did with the fragrance. In the first bag add 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Red and 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Brown.  This will be used for the darker red color.  Bag two will be used as the light pink color.  Dip a toothpick tip into the red spectrum candle dye and place the dye into the wax.  Dip the toothpick one more time into the red candle dye and work into the wax.  Lastly, dip another toothpick into the brown dye one time and incorporate into the wax.  The third ziplock bag will remain uncolored.  Shake each bag well.  Make sure all of the color and bacon fragrance oil is fully dispersed.

Now, it is time to begin creating your candle.  We suggest using disposable spoons for this.  We will simply be layering the wax to create a bacon like look.  Start with the uncolored Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Place the wax along the bottom of the jar.  You will want to make a thin line of uncolored, bacon scented wax.  Directly on top of the uncolored wax, place a layer of the light pink wax.  On top of the light pink granulated wax, place a thin layer of the dark red wax.  Continue layering the wax until your jar is completely full.  Be careful when filling your jar.  You want to make sure the wicks remain centered as you fill the candle container.  Once you have filled the jar, use a pencil to curl the candle wicks.
