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!

Flower Child Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is a truly herbal blend, showcasing the incense aromas of patchouli and sandalwood.  Take it back to the Hippie days with Flower Child Fragrance Oil.  The origin of the term “Flower Child” as a synonym for hippie has its roots in the mid-1960’s after the film version of H. G. Wells’s The Time Machine. The film was characterized by anti-war themes and featured a futuristic society bestowing flowers as a symbol of piece.  This concept was taken by the mainstream media and used to describe the idealistic young individuals who gathered in San Francisco.  These young Hippies were gathered for the Summer of Love in 1967.  Flower children went around, passing on the belief that the world needed to embrace peace, bestowing flowers on those with whom they talked.  Embrace peace and patchouli with Flower Child Fragrance Oil!

What Does Flower Child Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Flower Child Fragrance Oil is the aroma of the incenses frequently burned by “hippies.”  Earthy wisps of herbal patchouli and sandalwood billow up from this fragrance oil like freshly lit incense.

Flower Child Fragrance Oil can also be incorporated into your bath and body products.  Bath gels and oils were found to perform well when the recommended maximum of 5% fragrance oil is incorporated.  Soap makers can use 5% fragrance oil in cold process and melt and pour soap recipes.  We even have our FUN Swirl Soap Recipe using our Flower Child Fragrance Oil and melt and pour soap!  Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results show that this fragrance oil had a good scent retention in cured soap and did not discolor.  The soap experienced no ricing and no separation.  There was no acceleration. If you wish to color your bath and body products, we would recommend using purple and blue soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.  Remember not to use candle dye in any of your bath and body products as they are not body safe.

Enjoy this incense aroma with a wide variety of products. Our customers create prominent room scenting products with this fragrance oil.  Room scenters can utilize up to 50% of this fragrance oil in projects like incense and potpourri recipes.  This fragrance oil is also nice and strong in aroma beads.  Homemade candle crafters can use Flower Child Fragrance Oil up to 10% with vegetable waxes and paraffin wax.  This earthy scent will smell amazing in Joy Wax, Wow Wax, and is very strong in soy waxes.  If you would like to color your candles, we would recommend three drops of purple and three drops of blue liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax.  Alternatively, you can also color your melted wax with a small amount of purple and blue color blocks.  We never recommend using crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Customers also incorporate Flower Child Fragrance Oil into many other products.  One such product is homemade perfume.  Homemade perfumes perform well with this earthy fragrance oil when a maximum of 5% fragrance oil is used.  Homemade lotions perform very well.  We recommend homemade lotions adhere to a 5% fragrance oil maximum.  Homemade cleaning supplies also perform well with a maximum fragrance usage of 5%.

Angel Love FragranceAngel Love Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Angel was an American television series that aired from 1999-2004 starring David Boreanaz, and was a spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I don’t think that’s what we’re talking about here, but I love me some David Boreanaz (that’s my Angel Love). Actual angels, the kind we find in religious stories and myths, are said to be messengers from God, serving as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth. Angels are also charged with guiding and protecting human beings. They are generally depicted with bird-like wings, wearing white, and exuding some form of light. It is safe to assume that they smell absolutely heavenly.

Agave Lime FragranceAgave Lime Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Sweet and citrusy, this fresh scent is sure to fill you with energy. Feeling refreshed, you decide to go for a walk. Beautiful weather; clean, ozone-y air. You come upon a park and suddenly you smell orange, lemon, and most strongly, lime. What is this? Some kind of Citrus Family Reunion? You keep walking and your delicate lil sniffer begins detecting floral notes. Floral notes, yes, but your particular nose notices something else. Smells.. green. You keep walking as the smell gets stronger and stronger. You look around, searching desperately for the source of this amazing scent. It smells familiar, but you remember putting your fragrance oil away somewhere safe before leaving the house, and you were careful not to get any on your skin, or clothes. Hmm.. so what could it be? You look down to see a tiny commotion happening on the ground – a tiny wedding! The Citrus family is there: Daddy Orange, Mama Lemon; their son Lil Lime is waiting at the altar wearing a little black bow tie. On the opposite side of the aisle are some members of the floral family. And there she is, the beautiful bride: Agave. What is a sweetie like her doing marrying a sour lime? They work well together and her sweetness balances him out. As they exchange vows, all those in attendance begin to cry. And that’s where Agave Lime Fragrance Oil comes from.
