Sample Idea Sheet for October 2013
This month's featured sample is Chai Tea. This is a sweet, buttery fragrance with a touch of spice. Chai Tea is a wonderfully warm and comforting drink as a fun alternative to coffee! It has traditional Earl Grey Tea notes with its delicious citrus notes of Bergamot and Sicily Lemon along with base notes of Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Tahitian Vanilla and a little bit of Allspice. This fragrance does discolor to a deep brown, so we used the non-discoloring Vanilla to fragrance the whipped topping.
Tools and Ingredients:

ONE: Melt 8 oz of EcoSoya Advanced Wax on 30 second bursts in the microwave. Color the wax with equal portions of Red, Orange, and Black Wax Dye Block (a cleanup tool works well for shaving bits off the block!) and stir until the dye pieces are completely melted.
TWO: Add 7 mL Chai Tea fragrance oil.
THREE: Dribble a little bit of the wax into the bottom of the candle jar. Stick the metal disk of the wick into the wax and allow the wax to cool enough to hold the wick in place.
FOUR: Once the colored wax has cooled to 120 -130°F, pour the wax into the jars. Use pencils or chopsticks on the top of the candle jars to hold the wicks in place. Allow the wax to fully cool and harden overnight.
FIVE: Melt the rest of the EcoSoya Advanced Wax on 30 second bursts in the microwave. Add 2 mL non-discoloring Vanilla fragrance oil.
SIX: Using a hand-held mixer, whip the melted wax until it is thick enough to form slight peaks when manipulated with a spoon.
SEVEN: Moving quickly, spoon the whipped wax on top of the cooled candle. Allow the whipped wax to fully harden.
