Description

These candles are made with Magnolia Leaf and Tonka Fragrance Oil, which is a complex and sultry blend of cardamom, rose, and vanilla. It's the perfect cozy scent for fall and winter days. The wide wooden wicks provide a slow burn and soft crackle. 

In our tests, the wax did brown slightly after burning. This is normal - it's caused by the vanilla in the fragrance oil. Learn more about vanilla discoloration here. If you've never made soy candles before, this article is full of tips and tricks, including how to choose the perfect wick, how much fragrance to add, and more.

Magnolia and Tonka Candle Project
These candles fill the room with notes of amber, tonka, black pepper, and magnolia.

Magnolia and Tonka Candle Project | Bramble Berry

Ingredients
4 Large Gray Ceramic Jars
40 oz. Nature Wax C-3
4 Long Wide Wooden Wicks
3.2 oz. Magnolia Leaf and Tonka Fragrance Oil

Instructions

1

Place a half-filled pot of water on the stove, bring it to a low simmer, and nest a pouring pitcher or other heat-safe container inside. Add 40 ounces of Nature Wax C-3 and let it melt. 

2

Cut the wooden wicks to fit into the large jars - we found 3.25" fits perfectly with the lid on. Insert the wooden wicks into the metal holders and place wick stickers or glue dots on the ends. Adhere firmly to the center bottom of the 4 ceramic jars.

3

Weigh out 3.2 ounces of Magnolia and Tonka Leaf Fragrance Oil into a glass container. Once the wax reaches 175° F, remove it from the heat and gently stir in the fragrance for 1-2 minutes to fully incorporate. Set aside to cool.

Once the wax is at 160° F, pour it slowly into the prepped jars.

5

Wait 12-24 hours to allow the candles to fully cool. Cure for 3-5 days so the fragrance completely bonds with the wax. Burn your candle until it reaches a full melt pool for best results.
