How Joy Wax Can Be Used

Are you interested in learning about some different methods to create homemade candles, potpourri, wax tarts, and wax melts? We at Natures Garden would like to introduce you to our Joy Wax, which is only available at Natures Garden’s store and on our website! This wax is made from a combination of soy wax, different vegetable waxes, food grade paraffin, and other proprietary ingredients. We test each batch out ourselves using color, fragrance oil, CD candle wicking, and of course, 100% Joy Wax. We sell our Joy Wax in various sizes, depending on the amount you are going to need for your projects. This product of ours is continuously gaining popularity on the market and is rated our number one candle wax. Get ready to hear all about the Natures Garden Joy Wax, what it is, and a variety of ways that it can be used!

The Size Variety of Joy WaxThe Size Variety of Joy Wax

The Natures Garden Joy Wax comes in a few different sizes, all of which we are going to mention. The first and smallest size that we sell is one slab of Joy Wax, which are about 10-12 pounds each. The next size up is one case of Joy Wax, which range from 54-60 pounds each. The largest size that we sell is by the skid-load, made up of 42 cases of Joy Wax, again, 54-60 pounds each. With this variety, you will be able to make as many candles and wax melts as you would like!

More About Joy Wax

As we have mentioned, our Joy Wax consists of soy wax, vegetable waxes, paraffin, and other proprietary ingredients. We decided to create a wax that would work excellently for container candles. With this Joy Wax that we have created, you will be able to get both hot and cold scent throw, without any curing time being necessary.

Since we had container candles in mind when we were creating this, it has been designed to cling nicely to jars. It also has a creamy and smooth finish to it, and no additives need to be added for the wax to perform the way that it should. By using our Joy Wax, you will be able to create candles that are rich in color. Your candles will also have an excellent melt pool, and usually only require one pour in most jars.

Joy Wax Candle Making Kit Joy Wax Candle Making Kit

We believe that the best way to get started making your own candles is to purchase a starter kit, which we have several of. It would be a good idea to start with our Joy Wax Candle Making Kit to get familiar with this product. This candle making kit comes with three pounds of Joy Wax, two color blocks, 4 one ounce fragrances, 25 six inch hemp candle wicks, twelve hexagonal jars with lids, and it includes a complete set of instructions. The fragrances included in this kit are currently fresh linen, spring rain, vanilla silk, and strawberry passion. You will also need to get a metal pouring pot and a candle thermometer, which do not come in the kit. Both of these items are available to buy from Natures Garden. This kit makes it very easy for you to get started and learn how to work with Joy Wax. In addition, you will not need to use all products included in the kit, so you will have a jump start on your next candle making project.

How to Make Joy Wax Container CandlesJoy Wax Container Candles

Now is the fun part! We are going to begin talking about just how you can make container candles using Joy Wax. First, we will introduce to you a recipe to make basic Joy Wax candles. Then we are going to give two specific recipes using Joy Wax: Shimmer Gel Potpourri and Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts. Seeing each of these will allow you to learn the variety that Joy Wax offers in candle making. The first recipe we will be referring to makes four pounds of candles.

Ingredients:

Joy Wax
Coloring (You can use either our Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye or Color Blocks)
Pouring Pot
Scale
13 x 9 pan
Fragrance
Candle wicks
Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
Heat source
Candy thermometer
Work clothes
Safety glasses

How to Make Joy Wax Container Candles

First, weigh out 4 pounds of Joy Wax on a scale. Turn your oven on 150-200°F. Put your empty glass candle containers on a tray and in the oven to warm them to about 150°F when you will be pouring into them. Pouring hot wax into a cold container will cause your wax to set up too quickly and your candles will develop jump lines or wet spots.

Gathering Your Materials

Put about 1″ of water in your 13 X 9 pan on the stove. Turn the temperature setting on your stove between low and medium. Gather your pouring pot, coloring, additives, fragrance, containers, and wicks to start making your container candles. Put the 4 pounds of Joy Wax into a clean pouring pot and place that inside of your 13 x 9 pan on the stove.

Melt Your Joy Wax

Allow your wax to melt in the pan. It is important that you never melt wax with the pouring pot directly on a heat source. This can quickly become a fire hazard or can result in your wax being scorched. If your wax gets scorched, it will create a burnt smell. If your wax smells like this, it is ruined and wax that becomes scorched cannot be corrected. Periodically check the temperature of your melted wax with your candy thermometer. Heat the Joy Wax up to 200°F. Once again, make sure that it does not get too hot and become scorched.

Adding the Candle Colorant

You should add the candle colorant at the hottest temperature. Add 1-10 drops of liquid candle dye to the melted wax. Stir. Do not use more than ten drops of the liquid candle dye. Liquid candle dyes will make it easy to get a consistent color since you can simply count how many drops you have added. This can be important when marketing you homemade candles to your customers. Alternatively, you can use Natures Garden’s color blocks with the Joy Wax. Color blocks are a good alternative to liquid candle dye if you are looking for more rich, dark colors for your candles. They are great for larger batches. However, if you are creating candles in smaller batches, you will need to make sure you are weighing out just how much of the color block you are adding in grams. This will allow you to get a consistent color.

Preparing the Candle Wicks

While you are waiting for your wax to cool you can prepare your jars. Putting wicks in your candles is much easier when you use either the pretabbed prewaxed wicks. The zinc core or CD type wicks from Natures Garden are the most popular. You have a couple of options when adding candle wicks. Allow your candles to cool a little until you see that the bottom of the container has about one inch of candle setting up. Straighten your wicks and place them in the candle centered and evenly spaced apart.

If you are placing more than one wick into your jars, make sure that the wicks are not too close to the sides of the container because it may create soot. Your wicks will move if you try to wick your candles too soon and they will not be spaced apart properly. However, if you wick your candles too late, your wicks will not migrate to the bottom of the container. This brings us to the second option. It may be helpful for you to use a hot glue gun to center and adhere your wicks to the bottom of your containers if you wish to. If you decide on using the hot glue gun, you will need to put the wicks into your containers prior to pouring in the hot wax.

Adding Fragrance Oil and Pouring the Joy Wax

Remove your warm glass candle containers from the oven and place them on a surface that is heat resistant. Prepare them in a line so that they will be ready for the hot wax to be poured in. You can add your candle wicks now, or later. This will depend on which option you chose. Next, you will need to remove the pouring pot from heat and allow the temperature of the Joy Wax to drop to 170°F. Then, add 1-1.5 ounces of fragrance oil per pound of melted wax to your melted wax mixture. Stir the wax, thoroughly blending the fragrance oil and pour the Joy Wax into your glass containers. Stop pouring the wax at the point when your candle jar starts changing shape. Sink holes may develop if you fill your jars too full.

Cooling the Candles and Finishing Up

For the best results when cooling your candles, allow them to cool at room temperature. Center and straight your wicks before allowing them to set up all of the way. You can place a pencil across the opening of the jar, wrapping the candle wicks around it to keep them in place. We also find that placing a fine tooth comb across the opening, using the space in between teeth of the comb to hold the wicks in place also works well. Condensation can develop if they are put on the jars too soon.

Finally, let’s talk about curing. You can allow your candles to cure for a few days in order for the fragrance to fully bind to the wax before burning it. Cure the candles with their lids on after they have completely set up and cooled down. While we find it isn’t 100% necessary since Joy Wax has a beautiful scent throw without curing, it really kicks the scent throw up a notch.

Shimmer Gel Potpourri RecipeShimmer Gel Potpourri Recipe

Now, we are going to introduce to you one of our homemade room scenting recipes using Joy Wax. Did you know Joy Wax can be used for more than just container candles? For example, although this recipe is made from soy wax, it can easily be substituted with Joy Wax. This is yet another way to show the versatility of Joy Wax. When coloring this recipe, you can also use spectrum candle dyes in place of the gold mica pigment. You will be able to produce one 8 ounce bottle for your oil burner using this recipe.

To create this potpourri, the first thing you do is 60 grams of Joy Wax into your pouring pot. Then, you will use the double boiler method as described above to melt the wax on a low temperature on the stove until the wax is all liquid.

Next, weigh out 30 grams of Natures Garden’s Glitter Fragrance oil. Prepare your gold mica pigment or your spectrum candle dye, whichever you have chosen to use. Once your Joy Wax has been liquefied, it is now time to add the fragrance oil. Stir well and then add the mica pigment or candle dye, and stir again.

Weigh out 142 grams of the Rice Bran Oil that you will be mixing with your wax. Once the wax has been both scented and colored, add the Rice Bran Oil.  Stir well to fully combine. Allow the temperature of your mixture to reach somewhere between 140-150°F. At this temperature, pour the liquid you created into your Boston round bottle slowly. Give it enough time to cool. Add the disc top lids to your bottle once the outside of it is cool to the touch, and you have finished your homemade potpourri!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax MeltsPumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts

Lastly, we want to show you one more product that you can create using Joy Wax. Our wax melt recipes are very popular, and this recipe of ours is also perfect for this time of the year. Pumpkin cheesecake would be a perfect scent to melt and smell around the house this fall. We have linked the ingredients that you will need to create this below.

Since the recipe is linked above that you can follow, we are only going to mention where the Joy Wax is incorporated in this recipe. It comes into play when you are preparing the whipped topping of the pumpkin cheesecake wax melts. After you weigh out 9 ounces of Joy Wax, place it into the pouring pot. Continue melting on your stove on a low setting until the wax is completed melted. Next, weigh out and add 0.9 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil to the wax and stir.

After the wax has started to set up in the pot, use a spoon to begin whipping the wax until you achieve a whipped topping texture. Simply frost each of your cheesecake bases quickly and  fluff the tops to look like whipped cream. Finally, sprinkle pumpkin pie spice blend powder over each of the melts. Remove them from the molds when they have cooled down. Now, if you are hungry for the real thing, our pumpkin cheesecake wax tarts were inspired by these mini pumpkin Oreo cheesecakes.

Another great scented oil that Cory reviewed was our Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil. This fragrance oil is the spunkiest green apple fragrance oil that we have ever smelled! We thought about calling the aroma Granny Smith Apple, but that name isn’t quite right. This fragrance deserves a name that pops, just like its aroma.

Welcome to the wonderful world of candle making! If you are new to the craft of making candles, then you may be thinking to yourself; What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles? While there are quite a few options out there, you just need to learn about your options and choosing gets simplified. At Natures Garden we strive to make sure that our customers never feel lost or alone while crafting. So, we try to provide you with as much information as you need as well as offer a Toll-Free H.U.G Line; HUG stands for Help U Grow. 1-866-647-2368. So, you can call us anytime to receive help. Furthermore, we are creating this blog to have all the basic information that you need to get started and have a reference for when you need it!

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: What Wax to Use for CandlesWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: What Wax to Use for Candles

One of the most important ingredients for making candles is the wax. Your candle wax is what determines the strength and quality of your candle. While you may think that you can just add more fragrance oil to increase the scent of your candles, this just isn’t true. In fact, once your candle wax has been saturated the fragrance oil will simply leak out and be wasted. Also, this leakage can lead to a potential fire hazard. So, it’s best to stay within the recommended amounts. You can check out the Candle Wax Information to figure out which type of canlde wax that you want!

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: AdditivesWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Additives

Additives are an option that candle makers have to include ingredients into their wax. This is done to try to enhance the quality of their final product. This can be beneficial for some waxes, but we don’t suggest using these additives in any preblended waxes.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: How to Make Candles With Crisco

One additive that you can include is Crisco shortening for some of your candles. About 1-2 ounces can be added per pound of paraffin candle wax. This will help to decrease wet spots, increase your melt pool, absorb fragrance oil, and help to decrease the chance of your fragrance sitting on the bottom of the pouring pot. So, this can be used to increase scent throw in candles made of this type of wax. But, you will find that a blended wax like our Joy Wax is already formulated to provide a great scent throw without adding any Crisco.

You will probably read differing opinions on using Crisco in your candles; however, if it had been such a bad idea, then wax manufacturers would not be making wax out of soy. Crisco is soy based. Use your own judgment on this one!

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Vybar

Another additive that is used to enhance candles is Vybar. This additive’s primary use is enhancing the scent throw. Plus, this ingredient will create a marble appearance on the top of the candle, which looks very cool! Another thing that this ingredient does is harden the wax consistency and raise the melt point. While some people use stearin, we believe that Vybar does the same thing with less issues.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: UV Light Protectors

If you want to sell your candles wholesale or want to have them keep their color for a long time, then you may want a UV Light InhibitorHowever, these can be expensive and aren’t necessary otherwise. Colors that you need to be most worried about are Blue, Violet, Burgundy, and sometimes pink. Also, even after adding this ingredient we would recommend keeping them out of direct sunlight as the sun will still be able to fade your color over time. If your find that your colors our still fading quite a bit even after adding this, then it could be due to your fragrance oil.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Petrolatum

Also, you can use petrolatum as a candle making additive. This ingredient will help increase the number of pores in the candle. So, you candle will be able to absorb even more fragrance oil. This means an even stronger scent! Plus, it will help your wax cling to the sides of your container. However, this may lead to a less clean burn and sometimes even smoking. So, there are some trade offs with this one.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Fragrance OilWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Fragrance Oil

The fragrance oil is another ingredient that is important for making wonderfully scented homemade candles. Firstly, you should make sure that the fragrance oil you want to use is not alcohol based, as this can be dangerous. Next, you will want to consider the concentration of your fragrance. Obviously, you want a good scent that hasn’t been diluted, like our fragrance oils, but there are some companies that dilute their scents and you should be cognizant of it. When using a concentrated fragrance oil, you can use about 1 ounce per pound of fragrance. If you try to use more, it will just be wasted. This is because the wax is already fully saturated and your fragrance will simply be left on the bottom of your pouring pot.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: ColorantsWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Colorants

Also, you have the option to add colorants to your candles. There are a few routes you can go for coloring your homemade candles. One thing that we’d like to note here is that candles aren’t a very good candle colorant. While there are many diy recipes on how to make candles out of crayons, we have found that candles should never be used if you want quality candles. Any amount of crayons added to your candles will cause smoking and will clog your wick. Instead, you can use liquid candle dye, color blocks, or powdered candle dye for your candles.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Liquid Candle DyeWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Liquid Candle Dye

First, you can use the Spectrum Liquid Candle Dyes to color your candles. These dyes are very concentrated, so it only take a little bit. Often a few drops or even a toothpicks amount will suffice. Make sure that you never use more than 10 drops of the liquid candle dye because it will cause a sight chemical smell that may ruin your scent! Plus, adding too much color can clog your wick, reduce the scent throw, create smoking, and may reduce the melt pool of your candle. But, as long as you stay under our recommended maximum you should be fine. Plus, the liquid dye allows you to make candles that have consistent coloring each time because you can simply count the number of drops you add to your melted wax.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Color BlocksWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Color Blocks

Next, you have the option of color blocks for your homemade candles. These candle coloring blocks are dye that has been concentrated in a wax medium. This block will provide enough color to deeply dye 15 pounds of wax in total. However, the color blocks do not provide as vibrant of a color compared to our liquid candle dye or a powdered candle dye. We have these colorants available in red, coral/peach, yellow, blue, green, purple, burgundy, brown, teal, cinnamon, and cranberry. You can mix these colors, but make sure not too add too much as it may clog your wick, cause smoking, reduce the melt pool, or inhibit scent throw. To use this colorant you can cut just a piece off the block and add it to your melting candle wax. Just make sure that your color blocks are fully melted before pouring your candle wax.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Powdered Candle DyesWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Powdered Candle Dyes

Lastly, you can use for your homemade candle creations. These are the most concentrated form of candle dye out there. You can use very small amounts of the dye to provide some vibrant color results. Plus, you can combine colors to create any color that you prefer! Also, you can add this powder to melted Stearic Acid to provide a better dispersion in your candle wax. Stearic acid can be added to your candle to help harden them. Also, you should avoid using too much as it could clog your wick, create more smoking, reduce the melt pool of your candle, or inhibit the scent throw.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Candle WicksWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Candle Wicks

Another important aspect to candle making is the wick. There are two things you need to consider when picking a wick, which are the type of wax you are using and the size of your container. First, you need to think about the type of wick that you want to use. While there is some preference involved, there are some wicks that will work better in certain types of waxes. You can see on the website for each wick or at the bottom of the Science of Candle Making page.

Next, we need to think about what size wick that we will need. The size of your wick will determine the radius of wax that the flame can cover. If the flame doesn’t reach the edges you will be wasting perfectly good candle wax. However, a wick that is too large can result in mushrooming or even smoking, or loss of scent.  So, you will need to make sure that you choose the correct sized wick for each of your different container sizes. If you need help figuring out which type of wick and the size you need then check out our Candle Wick Chart for sizing.

Also, you can check out our Types of Candle Wicks for a condensed version of candle wicking information.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: EquipmentWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Equipment

Next, we have some basic equipment is important for candle making and can potentially last forever. Both the pouring pot and thermometer are important pieces of equipment in the candle making process that you really can’t go without.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Pouring PotWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Pouring Pot

First, the pouring pot is great to have for your melting wax. If you are using a pot from your kitchen, then it will be nearly impossible to reclaim it for cooking. Plus, you won’t have the convenience of a pouring spout in a typical cooking pot. So, its best to just get a pouring pot that is more efficient for candle making.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: ThermometerWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Thermometer

Also, the thermometer is crucial for making sure that your wax is used properly. Firstly, this allows you to monitor the temperature to prevent you from getting your wax to hot. If your wax gets hotter than 200 degrees Fahrenheit, in some cases, it will burn. At this temperature the wax’s molecules begin to break down and the wax will take on a burnt smell. Another issue that this helps you with is pouring your wax at the right temperature. You need to make sure that your candles are poured at the temperature recommended for the candle wax you are using.

What Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?: Worlds Largest Candle

In the spirit of candle making, we figured we would talk about the largest candle ever! According to Waymarking.com, the largest candle in the world is in South Deerfield, MA. It is a big, red giant made of 1,377 pounds of wax and standing about 6 feet tall. If you are curious in seeing this phenomenal candle, then check out the World’s Largest Candle in World’s Largest Candle Store.

Eggnog Candle RecipeEggnog Candle Recipe

It is that time of year again, eggnog season.  Today, I will share with you a candle recipe we created using our Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  This eggnog candle recipe looks good enough to drink!  While we obviously do not suggest drinking it, it sure does smell and look just like the real thing.  Finally, we you finish creating the candle be sure to check out my absolute favorite real eggnog drink recipe.  It is thick and delicious and something I make every year during the holidays.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Ingredients You Will Need Found at Natures Garden

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment That You Will Need

Mixing Spoons
Stove
Scale
Pot (for double boiler)
Glass Mug
Toothpicks
Cheese Grater
Paper Bowl
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for the Main Candle

455 grams Joy Wax
45 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil
Toothpick Spectrum Yellow Liquid Candle Dye
Toothpick Spectrum Brown Liquid Candle Dye

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Total Recipe Weights for Whipped Portion of Candle

85 grams Joy Wax
8 grams Eggnog Fragrance Oil

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Jar for the Candle

First, prepare your mug.  We use a glass mug that we picked up at our local grocery store.  Our mug was slightly under 3.5 inches in diameter.  So, we used a CD-12 wick in our mug.  The size of the wick that you use will depend upon the diameter of the mug you are using for your candle.  While I can’t tell you the exact size you will need, I can tell you that I highly recommend the CD candle wicks when using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax.  Our size recommendations, based on diameter, can be found in the description of our CD candle wicks at the link in the ingredients list above.
Once you have determined your wick size, use a hot glue gun to adhere the candle wick to the bottom of your jar.  You will want to make sure the wick is centered in the mug.  Once your wick is in place unplug your hot glue gun and move on to the next step.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Candle Wax For the Base of the CandleEggnog Candle Recipe: Prepare the Candle Wax For the Base of the Candle

Now, let’s prepare our Joy Wax.  In order to melt the Joy Wax, we will use a double boiler.  This will slowly melt the wax and prevent it form scorching.  You will need to first prepare a pot of water. The pot only needs to be filled with a few inches of water. Heat the water.  Once you have your wax weighed out, you will need to place your pouring pot inside the hot water to melt the wax.
So, in your pouring pot, weigh out 455 grams of Joy Wax.  Then, place the pouring pot inside the pot containing the water.  Allow the wax to melt.  Once the temperature reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the pot from the heat.

Next, we will be adding our colorant.  When using Natures Garden’s Joy Wax the colorant should be added at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, for this candle recipe we will need both Spectrum yellow candle dye and Spectrum brown liquid candle dye.  Now, we only need a little bit of each.  While it can be hard to get just a small amount of liquid candle dye out with a dropper, it is not impossible.  In order to get just a small amount you will simply need a couple of toothpicks.  First, we will add the yellow candle colorant.  Go ahead and dip your first toothpick into the yellow colorant.  Then, dip the yellow colorant into the candle wax.  Throw this toothpick in the trash.  Next, dip your second toothpick into the brown candle dye.  Then, dip this same toothpick into the candle wax.  Throw your second toothpick into the garbage.  Finally, mix to fully disperse the candle colorants.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance OilEggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Your Eggnog Fragrance Oil

When working with Joy Wax, we suggest adding your fragrance oil between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.  So, today, we will be using Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  We couldn’t create an eggnog candle without an eggnog scent, right?  So, we will be using 10% fragrance oil for this recipe.  So, when your wax is at the correct temperature, add 45 grams of your Natures Garden Eggnog Fragrance Oil.  Then, make sure you mix the candle wax for about 30 seconds.  This will ensure that your eggnog scent is completely blended with the candle wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Pouring Your Eggnog Candle Wax

Now, we will be pouring our candle wax.  When using Joy Wax, we recommend pouring your candle wax in warmed jars.  By warming your candle jars before pouring into them, it will help your wax to cling very nicely to your jars.  This is because your wax cools very slowly, allowing time for air bubble to release from the wax and thus the wax adhere to the walls of the jars better.  You want to put your jars into the oven at the very lowest setting.  So, turn your oven on the lowest temperature possible.  Then, place the jars on a pan and in the oven for just a few minutes. Do not allow them to get hot, they only need to be warm.

When pouring the wax, the temperature should be between 160 degrees Fahrenheit and 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once your candle wax reaches this temperature, pour the wax into your jar.  Make sure your wick is centered and secured in the center.  I use a fine tooth comb to keep my wicks in place.  Place the comb across the jar’s opening and put the wick centered in between the teeth of the comb.  Lastly, allow the candle wax to setup before moving to the next step.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Melting the Wax for the Whipped Topping

Joy wax can easily be used as a whipped topping on your candles.  For this particular recipe, we will be using 85 grams of Joy Wax.  However, we will be leaving this portion of the candle uncolored.  Once again, we will be using a double boiler to melt the candle wax.  So, go ahead and melt the wax using this method. However, this time bring the wax to a temperature between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit.  The Joy Wax does not need to get any hotter since we are not adding any candle colorants to it.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Adding Fragrance Oil to the Whipped Topping Portion of the Candle Wax

Now, we will be adding fragrance oil to the whipped topping portion of the candle wax.  Once your candle wax temperature is between 170 degrees Fahrenheit and 175 degrees Fahrenheit, add 8 grams of the Eggnog scent.  Then, mix the fragrance oil into the wax with a clean mixing spoon.  Stir for about 30 second to be sure that the Eggnog Fragrance Oil is completely mixed with the Joy Wax.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

Next, we will begin whipping the Joy Wax.  This portion of the wax will be placed on the top of our main candle.  This will give your candle the look of a creamy top that you see on a glass of eggnog.  While it may look more complicated, all the topping requires is cooled and whipped Joy Wax.  All you will need is the candle wax and a mixing spoon.

 

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Whipping the Joy Candle Wax

So, you want to allow your Joy Wax to cool.  As it cools stir it periodically.  Once it is at a thicker consistency, begin mixing until it takes on a whipped topping type consistency. Once the Joy Wax has reached this consistency, use a spoon to scoop it on top of your setup candle.  While you are topping the candle, make sure you keep your candle wick centered.

 

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing TouchesEggnog Candle Recipe: Placing the Finishing Touches

There are a couple of things we will be adding to the candle to finish it off.  First, we will be adding a small cinnamon stick.  I should note that this will need to be removed prior to burning, but it does give your candle an adorable finishing touch.  We will also be grinding and adding cinnamon to the top of the candle.

First, we will add a cinnamon stick.  Place the cinnamon stick vertically, but slightly angled right inside your candle.  It should stick out slightly though.  You want it to look like it is floating in your jar.

In addition, we will need to grind just a little bit of a cinnamon stick.  We will grind the cinnamon using a cheese grater.  While yes, we could use pre-made ground cinnamon, it won’t be as coarse or look as nice.  So, go ahead and grind just a small amount of the cinnamon.  To do this, place your cinnamon stick horizontally across your grater and move it across the grater quickly.  Finally, sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top of the candle.  Then, give your wick and little curl and your candle is finished.  Just remember to let the candle cure for a few day before using it or selling it.  This will ensure that your candle’s scent is a strong as possible.

Are you now craving the real thing?  I have tried many eggnog recipes myself.  Personally, my favorite eggnog recipe is this eggnog recipe from Tastes Batter From Scratch.  It is thick, creamy, and delicious.  It is sure to be an instant hit!

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!
