WWhat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?hat Do You Need To Make Your Own Candles?

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.

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.

Eggnog Candle Recipe: Coloring Your Melted Candle WaxEggnog Candle Recipe: Coloring Your Melted Candle Wax

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!
