Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing Your Soy Wax

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing Your Soy WaxFirst, you will want to melt your soy candle wax.  You will want to melt your wax using a double boiler.  You can create a double by adding a few inches of water to a medium sized pot. Then, place your pouring pot in the water.

So, using your scale, weigh out 510 grams of your soy wax in your double boiler.  Then, melt the wax using the double boiler you created.  Once the wax has melted, remove it from the double boiler.  Finally, add 50 grams of NG Aloe and White Lilac Fragrance Oil.  Next, stir to mix the fragrance into the wax.  This portion of your candle will be left uncolored.  For now, let it cool.  We will come back to it.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Creating You Beeswax Embeds

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Creating You Beeswax EmbedsThis step can be done while you are waiting for your soy wax to melt.  Before beginning warm your shamrock mold in your oven.  Place your oven on the lowest setting possible.  Place the mold in your over and allow it to warm up.  It does not need to be hot, just warm.  Once it is warmed, remove it from the oven.  We warmed the mold so that the beeswax would cool slower.  By letting our beeswax cool as slowly as possible it made it more flexible when we adhered it to the jar.  If they cool too quickly they will not have as much flexibility and are likely to crack.  They also will not adhere to the jar as well.

Again, you will want to use a double boiler to melt your wax.  So, to your pouring, add 20 grams of beeswax.  Melt the wax.  Then, add 2 grams of NG Aloe and White Lilac Fragrance Oil.  Also, add one drop of green Spectrum liquid candle dye.  Then, use a mixing spoon to stir the ingredients together.  Finally, pour a very thin layer of the wax into two cavities of the Shamrock silicone mold.  Your shamrocks will not fill the cavities of the mold, the will be very thin.  Alternatively, you can pour the beeswax onto wax paper.  Then, use a sharp pencil to draw the shape onto the beeswax before cutting it out.  We used a similar technique in our Leopard Candle Recipe.  This leopard print soy and beeswax candle recipe will show you how that is done.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing You Jars

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Preparing You Jars

 

There are a few things you will need to do before pouring your soy wax.  First, you want to warm your jar.  Again, with your oven on a low temperature, place your jar in the oven to warm it.  Remember, this will only take a few minutes.  You want it to be warm, not hot.  Once it is warm, remove it from the oven.

Next, remove your beeswax shamrocks from the molds.  Then, we will place the shamrocks in the jars.  Your shamrocks will be fairly flexible but it is still possible to crack them if you apply too much pressure.  So, make sure you do not try to rush this step.  Place your first shamrock in the jar.  Apply gentle pressure to the embed to bend it to the shape of the jar.  Then, press gently to adhere the embed to the jar.  Remember to make sure the embed adheres to the jar completely.  If it is not completely adhered the soy wax will get in between the glass and the beeswax.  Then, you will not be able to see the clover.  Repeat this process with the next shamrock.  You want to place the second shamrock on the opposite side of the jar.  Then adhere two of your CD 10 wicks to the bottom of the jar.  Make sure they are evenly spaced and centered.

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Pouring Your Soy Wax

Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe Pouring Your Soy WaxNow, back to your cooling soy wax.  We will want to pour our soy wax at a very low temperature.  The temperature of the wax is very important for this step.  We pour at a low temperature because we do not want to risk melting the beeswax embeds.  So, once your soy wax 464 has come to about 110 degrees Fahrenheit, you are ready to pour.  Pour the soy wax into you apothecary jar.  Allow the soy wax candles to setup.  Then, leave it undisturbed while it sets up.  Finally, trim your wicks, place your lid on your jar, and allow your candle to cure before burning your candle.

We hope that you have had as much fun creating the Saint Patricks Day Candle Recipe as we had.  For even more fragrance fun recipes check out all of our other candle, soap, and cosmetic recipes in our recipe box.  Our recipe box also offers numerous free downloadable classes to help you learn these wonderful crafts.  In addition, we love to see what you have been up to.  Post pictures of your latest projects on our Facebook page.  You can also tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.

How Do Our Customers Color Their Room Scenting Products Using Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil?

Are you undecided on how to color your products using Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil?  Our recommendation is using eight drops of green candle colorant and two drops of black liquid candle dye.  Alternatively, you could use an ample amount of shredded green and black color blocks in the wax.  We have chosen these suggestions for a four pound batch.  When coloring your candles and melt with crayons you do risk clogging your wick.  For this reason, we never recommend crayons as a suitable candle colorant.

How Do Our Customers Use Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Products?

While this holiday fragrance oil can be included room scenting products, this scent is not body safe.  Therefore, it can not be used to create bath and body products.  Since this Christmas time fragrance oil is not a body safe scent, bath oils, bath gels, soaps, lotions,  and other related bath and body products can not safely include this fragrance oil.  Even though homemade cleaning products are not meant to be used directly on the body, it is unable to contain this scent due to the opportunity of it coming into contact with skin.

Whether you are using this fragrance oil to add a bit of cheer to your holiday products or just enjoying this scent in your everyday products, we hope that you enjoy this fragrance oil!
