Eggnog Candle Recipe
Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
Pot (for double boiler)
Step 1: Begin by preparing your glass mug. You will need to adhere your wick tab to the bottom of your glass mug. We used a 16 oz. glass mug with a diameter of just under 3.5 inches that we picked up at our local grocery store. We used a CD 12 wick. The size of the wick will depend upon the diameter of your glass mug. You can find our size recommendations in the description of the CD wicks.
Step 2: Now, let’s prepare our Joy Wax. Use a double boiler to melt 455 grams of Joy Wax.
Step 3: Once the wax reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit, add your colorant. You will need to use a toothpick to add a tiny bit of brown and yellow candle dye. Stir the wax to fully blend the candle dye.
Step 4: Then, allow the temperature to drop between 170-175 degrees Fahrenheit and add 45 grams of Natures Garden’s Eggnog Fragrance Oil. Mix thoroughly to fully incorporate the fragrance oil.
Step 5: Allow the temperature to drop to 160-165 degrees Fahrenheit before pouring the wax into your mug.
Step 6: Once the wax has finished setting up, we will prepare the whipped topping portion. Begin melting 85 grams of Joy Wax.
Step 7: We will leave this portion uncolored so once the wax is melted and the temperature has reached 170-175 degrees Fahrenheit, add 8 grams of your Eggnog Fragrance Oil. Stir to incorporate your candle scent.
Step 8: Allow the wax to cool. As it cools use a spoon to whip the wax to a frosting like consistency. Then, place it on top of the base of your candle. Create peaks in the wax to give it a more authentic look. Straighten your wick.
Step 9: Once the wax is pretty well set up, place a cinnamon stick in the wax. Let it stick out slightly.
Step 10: Finally, use a cheese grater to grate a little bit of a cinnamon stick over the whipped wax.
Your Eggnog Candle is now ready to use! Just remember to remove the cinnamon stick before lighting your candle.
