Sandalwood Scented Candle ProjectSandalwood Scented Candle Project

Finding new recipes to incorporate into your home to create new family traditions, or into your business to invite more customers can be very exciting, especially around this time of year. The season of giving is just around the corner and we know that plenty of people are searching for inventive gift ideas for their family members. Our Sandalwood Scented Candle Project will give you just that! Sure, a book, a coffee mug, or a blanket are cute gifts to give, but why not try out something new and more personalized?! Homemade candles could be just what you are looking for! Being able to create a candle from scratch to give someone as a present around the holidays is special and unique. Plus, who doesn’t love a candle?

In this blog we are going to to be sharing with you the Natures Garden homemade Sandalwood candle recipe! This is one of our chunky candle recipes, which we only have a few of. Chunky candles are a new, exciting and creative way to start making candles. This fun idea is one that we originally came up with in order to ease the process of candle making by eliminating the step of re-pouring when making votive candles. This step can eat up a lot of extra time in the work station, which is not ideal. To see how these chunky votive candles are made, check out the Natures Garden class that explains how to make chunky candles. Without further ado, let’s get started on this Sandalwood scented candle project!

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Other Supplies That You Will Need:

16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar
Scale
Mixing Spoons
Knife
Hot Glue Gun and Stick
Toothpicks
Pot (For Double Boiler)

Pillar of Bliss Wax

Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss Wax is made up of more than 50% soy wax that is blended with paraffin wax. This wax is great to use for poured votive candles, pillar candles, candle wax tarts, and embeds! Our Pillar of Bliss wax comes in a granulated form and also has great fragrance retention. It is a harder wax than our Joy Wax, which makes it an easier wax to work with when making molds. Natures Garden has plenty of fun options when it comes to making candles in molds, such as coffee cups, foods, hearts, animals, and sports! Pillar of Bliss is a great wax to use for these.

Weigh Out the Pillar of Bliss Candle WaxWeigh Out the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

For the first step in this project, you will need to use a scale to weigh out 120 grams of the Natures Garden Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.  After the wax has been weighed out, use a double boiler to melt the wax. Allow it to melt until it reaches a temperature of 195°F, which you can continue checking with the thermometer. 

Color Blocks Dye

After the Pillar of Bliss Wax has melted, we are going to incorporate the chocolate color blocks dye. Natures Garden now carries many new colors in the color blocks! They each weigh between 0.5-1 ounce and are very easy to use in any of our candle waxes. A little goes a long way with these, and depending on the color you are trying to achieve, it can be adjusted by adding more or less of the dye. On our website some of the options you can choose from are red, orange, pink, yellow, white, black, caramel, and chocolate, which we will be using in this recipe.

Add the Chocolate Candle ColorantAdd the Chocolate Candle Colorant

For this Sandalwood recipe, measure out about three grams of the chocolate color block, and make sure to use a scale to ensure accuracy. Add small amounts of the chocolate color in order to reach the desired shade. Add this to the melted Pillar of Bliss Wax. Be sure not to add too much of the chocolate color block to the wax, as it can end up clogging the wick and affecting the way that your candle will burn.

Combine the wax with the colorant by stirring both of them together. To ensure that you are achieving the correct color, there are some ways that you can test it. One way of doing this is by placing a small amount of the wax on a white paper plate using a spoon. You will be able to see the true color of the wax once it has had time to set up. Add more of the color block to your Pillar of Bliss Wax in small amounts if it is needed.

Sandalwood Fragrance OilSandalwood Fragrance Oil

We have over eight hundred fragrance oils to choose from at Natures Garden. All of our fragrances are 100% concentrated, and this one is no different. Our signature Sandalwood fragrance has a very woody scent, which contains hints of both cedar wood and sandalwood.  The scents of jasmine and rose also come out in this fragrance oil, which adds to the distinct softness of sandalwood. The aroma that it gives off is both strong and wonderful. We use this Sandalwood Fragrance Oil in our homemade Sandalwood Bath Bomb and Sandalwood Soap recipes as well.

Adding the Sandalwood Fragrance Oil

Once your candle wax has reached the correct chocolate color, you will need to weigh out 12 grams of the Natures Garden Sandalwood fragrance oil on a scale and add it to the wax. After this has been added, stir the wax once again to fully blend all of the ingredients together before putting the wax into molds.

Molding Your Candle WaxMolding Your Candle Wax

The next step in this recipe is to pull out the 4-loaf silicone mold. Use each of the cavities in the 4-loaf silicone mold to pour some of the melted wax into. Allow enough time for the poured in wax to setup and harden.

Cutting Your Candle ChunksCutting Your Candle Chunks

Once the wax has had time to set, you can then pop each of the loafs out and remove them from the mold.  Then, using a knife, you are going to want to cut the wax into square pieces.  When you are finished, your wax should look like little chocolates. You are going to set these pieces aside for the time being.

What Is Joy Wax?

We are going to begin using the Joy Wax for this next step. This product is only available and sold at Natures Garden! A blend of soy wax, different vegetable waxes, food grade paraffin, and other proprietary ingredients makes up our Joy Wax. This is an excellent product to use for candle making because of the way it holds to containers. It is different than the Pillar of Bliss Wax, as it holds very nicely to the sides of jars and has a glossy finish to it. Our Joy Wax gives off amazing cold and hot scent throw with NO curing time necessary! Joy Wax allows you to create candles with rich colors without having to include any additives.

Melting the Joy Wax for Your Sandalwood CandleMelting the Joy Wax for Your Sandalwood Candle

Now that we have learned more about this product, similarly to what you did with the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax, you are going to weigh out 300 grams of the Joy Wax. After it is measured out, you are going to melt it using the double boiler once again. Continue melting until it reaches a temperature of approximately 200°F, using the thermometer.

Coloring the Joy WaxColoring the Joy Wax

Now that the Joy Wax is melted, the next step is to add a very small amount of the pink color block. We want the color to be a very light pink, so it is important not to add too much color.  Each one of Natures Garden color blocks can create several different shades for products. This includes the pink color block, which can provide candles with a nice variety of pink shades. Once again, you will probably need less than a gram of this color block because we want it to come out a fairly light shade of pink. Stir to completely blend the colorant with the candle wax.

Adding the Sandalwood Fragrance OilAdding the Sandalwood Fragrance Oil

After the pink color block is thoroughly mixed with the Joy Wax, you will need to measure out and add 30 grams of the Sandalwood Fragrance Oil.  In order to completely incorporate the Sandalwood fragrance oil, stir the mixture together.

Adding the Candle WicksAdding the Candle Wicks

Now that everything has been mixed together evenly, the time has come to add your wicks to the jar!  The CD candle wicks at Natures Garden are precut, prewaxed, and pretabbed. They come in various sizes, including CD 5, 7, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22. Here is a helpful chart on what size wicks you will need depending on the size of your candle jar or container. In order to get the candle wicks to stick in your jar, you can use a hot glue gun with a hot glue stick to get them to adhere to the candle wax.  Evenly place the candle wicks in the jar and make sure they are centered. We used two CD-12 wicks in our 16 ounce apothecary jar.

Setting Up Your Finished Sandalwood CandleSetting Up Your Finished Sandalwood Candle

Pour the melted wax into the 16 oz. glass apothecary candle jar that you have. Now it is time to retrieve your chocolate colored cubes that were set aside earlier and gently drop them into the jar.  It is important that you make sure to keep the wicks remain straight and centered as you are doing this.

 

Curing the CandleCuring the Candle

Before trimming the wicks that you set up, allow enough time for your candle to fully harden. Also allow enough time for the candle to cure if you choose to do so.

 

Using Your Sandalwood CandleUsing Your Sandalwood Candle

Once your homemade Sandalwood Candle has had enough time to cure, it will be all ready to burn. Simply trim your wicks prior to lighting it. We hope that you enjoyed making this homemade Sandalwood Candle Project as much as we did!

Preparations Before Creating the MP Soap

Clean and sanitize your work area and all of your equipment as well as your packaging materials. Make sure you have enough room to work. Grab all of your ingredients now so you will have them in reach. When trying a new recipe, it is easier to have all the necessities so you are able to focus on the what you need to do.  It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.  In addition, prepare a spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will help prevent you from getting air bubbles in the top of your soap.

 

Preparing Your Soap ColorantsPreparing Your Soap Colorants

Now, you will need to prepare the colorants.  We will use a combination of rose clay and tomato red FUN Soap Colorant for the pink.  For the brown colorant, we will use a combination of the cocoa powder and brown and black oxides.

Preparing Rose Clay Soap ColorantPreparing Rose Clay Soap Colorant

You will need a small mixing bowl for this. Add the 5 grams of rose clay. Then start adding about 12 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Stir the vegetable glycerin slowly. You’re looking for a completely emulsified paste. Once completely blended, set it aside.

Preparing Brown Soap ColorantPreparing Brown Soap Colorant

Grab another small mixing bowl. Slowly add 5 grams of cocoa powder and then add 12 grams of vegetable glycerin. Once that mixture is completely combined, add 5 drops of black oxide colorants and 10 drops brown oxide colorant to deepen the color. Then, stir to completely combine the paste!

Preparing The Brown Layer of SoapPreparing the Brown Layer of Soap

In a clean medium microwave safe mixing bowl, add 340 grams of soya milk melt and pour soap base. Begin melting the soap base in short 30-second increments. Make sure to stir in between each burst. Once completely melted, add the 17 grams of sandalwood fragrance oil from Natures Garden. Then, add the brown soap colorant. Stir the soap base until it is completely combined.

Pouring the Brown Layer into the MoldPouring the Brown Layer into the Mold

Slowly pour the brown soap mixture into the mold. Once all the soap is in the two pound loaf mold, spray the soap layer with rubbing alcohol to remove any lingering air bubbles. This step gets rid of the air bubbles to give you an smooth finish. Set this aside to allow it to set up before moving on.

Preparing the White Soap LayerPreparing the White Soap Layer

Once the brown layer is set up, we can begin making the white layer of soap. Start by adding the 227 grams of soya milk melt and pour soap base. Completely melt the mp soap just like you did in the previous step. Then, add 11 grams of sandalwood fragrance oil. Stir the mixture until you’re sure the oil is thoroughly integrated.

Pouring the White Layer Into the MoldPouring the White Layer Into the Mold

Start by spraying the previous layer of brown soap with your alcohol. This will ensure that your soap layers adhere to each other. When you’re sure your white layer of soap is completely blended with the fragrance oil, begin adding your white soap base to the loaf mold. Then, spray your white layer of soap with your alcohol. Finally, allow time for it to set up before continuing.

Preparing the Pink Soap LayerPreparing the Pink Soap Layer

Now, we will prepare the pink layer of soap. Begin by adding 340 grams of soya melt and pour soap base into a clean and dry mixing bowl. Melt the soap base and stir to make sure all clumps are gone. Once thoroughly melted, add 17 grams of the Sandalwood fragrance oil and the rose clay colorant that you prepared earlier. Stir the mixture until everything is completely blended together.

Pouring The Pink Soap LayerPouring The Pink Soap Layer

Start by spraying the white layer of soap with rubbing alcohol. This will ensure that this layer and the next layer adhere to each other. Then, pour the pink soap base on top of your white layer. Once you have all of your base into the mold, respray your pink layer to remove any air bubbles. Place it aside, allowing time for it to fully set before moving on. You’re starting to get close to your perfect Sandalwood MP Soap.

Preparing The Whipped SoapPreparing The Whipped Soap

In a large mixing bowl, put 207 grams of the whipped soap base into the bowl. Then, add 20 grams of Sandalwood fragrance oil. Next, add 20 grams of the vegetable glycerin. Use a hand mixer to completely combined the ingredients. Keep mixing the whipped soap base until it has the same consistency as whipped cream.

Adding the Soy Soap Base To The Whipped SoapAdding the Soy Soap Base To The Whipped Soap

Alright, now that you have finished getting the consistency you need for the whipped soap, weigh out the last remaining 207 grams of Soya Milk Melt and Pour soap base. Melt the soap base the same as you did in the previous steps. Once satisfied that there are no chunks of soap left unmelted, add the soya melt and pour and quickly mix the ingredients with a hand mixer, until all the melt and pour soap base is in your whipped soap bowl. Again, you’re looking for a whipped cream consistency!

Adding The Finished Whipped Soap On Top

When going to add the final layer of soap, spray the top of the pink soap in the mold with the alcohol to ensure that the whipped soap adheres to the pink soap. Once you have sprayed the soap, you can go ahead and add the whipped soap on top of the pink layer. When adding the next layer, try to keep some peaks to the whipped soap. This will give you an added texture, while also looking like a neapolitan cake.

Topping the Sandalwood MP SoapTopping the Sandalwood MP Soap

Next, add the final touch to your layered soap. While the whipped is still wet, add the Himalayan pink salt. We used about two tablespoons. However, you can use more or less if you choose to. Sprinkle this evenly on top. Let the soap dry and completely set up.

Cutting the Sandalwood MP SoapCutting the Sandalwood MP Soap

After your soap has setup, you will be able to cut it to your desired thicknesses. Place the soap in the mitre box. Then, use the cutter to slice your soap to the thickness of your choosing. Once you cut the soap into individual bars it is ready to use! This makes the perfect bar of soap for the shower or washing your face and hands. We hope you love this Sandalwood MP Soap Recipe as much as we do!

Hopefully you have had an amazing experience making your Sandalwood MP soap. We were inspired to create this project due to the amazing benefits of Himalayan pink sea salt. So, we wanted to make a soap to showcase it! In fact some of the staff of Natures Garden love pink salt so much that they go to pink salt rooms.  To read more about Himalayan salt therapy, you can check it out at Kalahari Resort Website!
