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.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit

Soy Wax Candle Making KitThe Natures Garden Soy Wax Candle Making Kit is a perfect and simple way to create candles of various scents. This kit comes with all of the necessary ingredients that are needed to create candles. Plus, the kit comes with a printed page of directions that are easy to follow. So, this is a perfect introduction into candle making for those that have not yet tried creating their own candles.

While this is not my first candle creation, I still enjoyed creating this kit. It was nice to have a recipe planned out, so I could just enjoy the coloring and scenting aspects of the project. For instance, I created one candle that was Vanilla Silk on the bottom and Hot Baked Apple Pie on the top. Honestly, I cannot wait to try it out! So whether you have never created a candle or are just looking for an easy craft night, this candle making kit may be something you’ll want to try out!

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Ingredients From Natures Garden

Soy Wax Kit

Pouring Pot

Thermometer

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Other Equipment Needed

A Stove Top

Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue Sticks

A Stainless or wooden spoon (don’t use plastic)

A Pan (this will be used to create a double boiler by adding ½” of water)

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Contents of the Soy Wax Kit

You will receive enough materials to create enough materials to create about 10 candles. Along with the soy wax, you will be provided with HTP candle wicks, hexagon jars (you will have a few extra), and four fragrance oils. These fragrance oils include Hot Baked Apple Pie, Vanilla Silk, Fresh Linen, and Floral Bouquet. So, pick your favorite candle scents! Additionally, you will receive two color blocks, burgundy and green. Finally, you will receive warning labels to place on the bottom of your jars. Since you will only need 3/8 of a color block at most for creating all of your candles, you can feel free to only use one or use both to create your candles.  You can save the rest, along with the extra jars for your next craft.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Sterilize and Prepare

Make sure that all of the equipment needed is ready for use. Also, be sure you have any equipment need that is not provided within your candle making kit. Further, be sure that your work area has been sanitized and you have enough room to create the candles, this will include your stove top. Also, be sure to plug in your hot glue gun so that it ready when you need it.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Candle Recipe

While we will be following various steps to create these soy wax candles, there will be a basic formula used for creating the candles in this kit. This candle recipe is the following: 1 pound of wax, 1/8 or less of a color block, and 1 oz to 1 ½ oz. of a fragrance oil.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Creating the Double Boiler

Soy Wax Candle Making KitThe double boiler will be created to prevent the wax from being scorched. First, take your pan and add about a half inch of water. Next, you should place the pan on the stove. Later, you will boil the water. Also, you will set the pouring pot into the water once all the ingredients are added to the pouring pot.

 Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Melting and Coloring Wax

Initially, you will put one entire pound of soy wax into the pouring pot. Also, add 1/8th or less of either your green or burgundy color block. Personally, I added 1/8th of the burgundy color block to my first two batches and 1/16th of the green color block to the last batch. However, you can add your color blocks in any amount you desire. Now, take your thermometer and set it into the pouring pot. As you melt your wax you should keep an eye on the temperature. Additionally, mix occasionally as it melts. Once the mixture of wax is at 175 degrees Fahrenheit you will be able to remove the pouring pot from the boiling water.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Preparing Your Wicks

Soy Wax Candle Making KitSecond, we will anchor your wicks into the glass candle jars. Take your hot glue gun and dab some glue on the metal of the wicks. Next, quickly place this end of the wick into the center of the bottom inside of the jar. Repeat this with your jars until each of the jars are filled.  This can be done while you are waiting for your wax to melt.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Adding a Fragrance Oil

Soy Wax Candle Making KitNext, you will wait for the temperature of the colored wax to drop to approximately 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the wax cools to this temperature, add one full oz. of your preferred scent. Then, mix well to incorporate the scent. You will have Hot Baked Apple Pie, Vanilla Silk, Fresh Linen, and Floral Bouquet available for you to choose. Personally, I picked Hot Baked Apple Pie, Vanilla Silk, and Fresh Linen for my candle batches. While you won’t necessarily need the fourth for this candle project, you can use your fourth to create a separate project at a later time. Alternatively, you can create smaller batches using each fragrance.  For example, if you used half a pound of wax, you could use 1/2 ounce of fragrance oil.  This would allow you to try each scent in the soy wax candle kit.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Pouring the Wax

Soy Wax Candle Making KitNow, wait for the scented wax mixture to cool further. Once the wax had cooled to about 110 degrees Fahrenheit and seems to be like a slushy in appearance it is ready to pour. So, when the wax reaches this temperature you can pour the wax into the glass jars. Get four jars ready and make sure the wicks are fairly straight and carefully pour the wax mixture. Make sure to avoid getting wax on the side of the jar. Also, make sure the wicks remain straight as the was cools. You can use something like pencils or butter knives to hold the wicks in their correct position.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Creating the Other Candles

Although you have completed your candles for your first scent, you still have enough materials to complete candles with two more scents. You will follow the same steps to create the next two batches. Be wary that you don’t ignore the temperatures when creating the remaining soy wax candles. It can be easy to get careless as you repeat the same steps, but the temperatures that certain steps are done are not arbitrary. For example, if you pour your wax at too hot of a temperature the candles are likely to have sunken parts and air pockets.  Soy wax also has a natural frosted look to it.  This is lessened by pouring at the correct temperature.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Using Your Candles

Soy Wax Candle Making KitFinally, your candles are finished! While you may be excited to test out your candles, you would want to wait a few days before lighting to allow your candle to cure. Once your soy candles have set up, trim the wick and place the lid on.  For the best results, freshly made candles should be able to rest for about three days. Also, you may want to consider adding the warning label stickers to the bottom of the candles to ensure that the candles are used correctly. This is especially important if you intend to sell your candles or to share your candles with friends. But, above all, I hope that you enjoy your candle creations!

Candle Making- Soy Candles


This entry was posted in candle dye, candle making, candle making supplies, candle scents, candle supplies, candle wax, candle wicks, candles, fragrance oil, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Soy wax Candles When it comes to candle making, the wax you use is really up to personal choice.

There are quite a few reasons why candle makers select soy wax for their candles.  Some like it due to the fact that soy wax is 100% natural (it is a pure vegetable wax) and it is biodegradable.  Many prefer soy wax because of the long, even, and clean burn the wax provides with less soot.  And, even still, many candle crafters like soy wax because it is an environmentally friendly, renewable resource that American farmers can plant and harvest; also helping the economy too. Some other reasons for why some people prefer using soy wax for their candles are ease of use.  Since this wax is in flake form, it is a breeze to weigh out, work with, and clean up.  And, soy wax is a single pour wax, requiring no repours.

Soy wax is for container candles.  Due to the nature of this natural wax, the finished candle will have a mottled (or frosted) appearance on top.  However, if you do not like this appearance, you can always apply heat to the finished candle with a hot hair dryer or heat gun.

Supplies and Equipment Needed: 
NG 100% Soy Wax
Fragrance Oil
Spectrum Candle Dye or Color Block
Pouring Pot
Thermometer
Glassware
Wicks
Scale
Stainless steel mixing utensil
Cookie Sheet
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks
Stove
Pot

A little behind the scenes knowledge: 

For this candle making process we are going to suggest the double boiler system for melting the wax.  Fill a large pot half way full with tap water.  Place the filled pot onto the stove top burner.  Turn the appropriate burner on medium heat.  Once you have the pouring pot filled with the correct amount of soy wax, place the pouring pot into the water filled pot.  Once the water starts to boil, you will notice that the soy wax is beginning to melt.  As this occurs, you want to occasionally stir the wax to ensure an even temperature.

Carefully place your glassware on a cookie sheet.  Preheat your oven to the lowest temperature possible.  Once the oven is heated, place the cookie sheet with the glassware into the oven.  Allow your glassware to warm in the oven for 10-15 minutes.  Once the allotted time has passed, carefully remove the cookie sheet using oven mitts.  Set these aside. 

The standard fragrance percent for soy candles is 1-1 ½ ounces of fragrance oil per pound of wax.

For measuring purposes, 20 ounces (weight) of soy wax is equivalent to 16 ounces of fluid volume.

Directions for making a soy candle: 

1.  Weigh out the correct amount of soy wax with your scale.
2.  Place your soy wax into your pouring pot and using the double boiler system, heat the wax to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.  Monitor this by using your thermometer.  Please Note:  Heating soy wax hotter than 200 degrees Fahrenheit will discolor the wax, so proper monitoring of the temperature is advised.
3.  While you are waiting on the wax, plug in your hot glue gun.
4.  Once the wax is in a liquid state, add your candle colorant.
5.  Next, add your Natures Garden’s fragrance oil of choice and stir well to incorporate throughout the wax.  The information we provide below about flash point and burnoff is information we have learned over the years that will help make the best soy wax candles.  When making candles, it is important to understand that ingredients affect the end result.  Testing needs to be done by the candle maker for every fragrance that you decide to use.  We provide the information as a guide, but you will still need to do the testing yourself.
      a.  For this step you will need to know the flashpoint of the fragrance oil you selected.  The right temperature is extremely important to ensure that the fragrance oil binds properly with the soy wax.  You also do not want to risk “burnoff”.  Burnoff is the adding of a fragrance oil at too hot of a wax temperature.  Because a flashpoint on a fragrance oil is the highest temperature the fragrance can handle before breaking down, burnoff can affect the scent in the finished candle.  That is why you want to know the proper temperature to add the fragrance oil.  You can find this information right on the label of the Natures Garden fragrance oil.  This information is also in the Important Fragrance Specifics area on the website under each fragrance oil listing.
b. Fragrance Flashpoints give you the answer as to when you add your fragrance oil to the hot wax.  Any flashpoint that is higher than 185 degrees Fahrenheit is added at 185 degrees.  For any flashpoints that are below 185 degrees, they should be added at or below the flashpoint degree.  The key to remember is try not to add the fragrance oil at a temperature that is hotter than its flashpoint.
c.  Some fragrance oils have a very low flashpoint.  In these cases, testing comes into play.  You are balancing flashpoint temperatures with the fact that the wax needs heat in order to bind the scent with the wax.
6.  Once the soy wax has been scented and colored, you will want to stir your wax thoroughly.  Doing this step will help the mixing and binding of the color and scent throughout the wax.
7.  The next step is allow your soy wax to cool at room temperature.  Place your thermometer into the pouring pot and wait until the wax reaches 110 degrees Fahrenheit.  Pouring at this temperature will allow for a smoother surface in your finished candle.  While you are waiting, prep your containers for the pour.
8.  Using your hot glue gun, place a little amount of glue to the bottom of the wick tab.  Then, carefully center the wick to the bottom of the glassware.  Gently, straighten your wick in each glass.
9.  Once your wax is the appropriate temperature (110 degrees F), you will notice the physical appearance of the wax will be slushy like.  At this point, you are now ready to pour your wax.  Slowly, fill each glass to the point where the jar changes shape.  Filling a jar surpassed the point where the jar changes shape will increase your chance of a sink hole in the finished candle.
10.  Once all containers have been poured, allow them to set up and undisturbed at room temperature.
11.   When all candles have completely set up, lid each container to allow for the fragrance to be absorbed by the wax.  This is known as the “cure time.”  For best results, allow your candles to cure for 24-48 hours.
12.  Once the cure time has elapsed, it is now time to trim your wick, and light your homemade soy candle.  Enjoy!

On a Final Note: 

Anytime you burn a candle for the first time, you want to establish a “memory burn.”  A memory burn is a complete wet pool of hot, melted wax over the entire top portion of the candle.  If the first burn is a memory burn, this ensures that every time you burn your candle, you will not have tunneling around the wick or an excess of unmelted wax adhered to the candle jar.  A memory burn also guarantees that the scent throw of your candle will be the best possible since every gram of scented wax is being used.

If you are interested in making your very own soy wax candles, Natures Garden offers a Soy Wax Kit with all the ingredients you need to make soy candles.
