Midnight Magic Candle Project

These beeswax candles are scented with Sultry Black Jasmine Fragrance Oil and topped with a bit of glitter. 

Midnight Magic Candles | Bramble Berry

Ingredients

Three 8 oz. Lidded Glass Jars
3 HTP 1212 Wicks
27 oz. Premium White Beeswax
Charcoal Black Candle Dye Flakes
2.7 oz. Sultry Black Jasmine Fragrance Oil
Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter

Instructions

NOTE: You can melt beeswax a few different ways – we recommend using a double boiler. It’s possible to heat it in the microwave, but because beeswax has a high melting point it takes a long time. The container needs to be very heat resistant so it won’t break.

PREPARE DOUBLE BOILER: Fill a large pot with water about a quarter full and place a heat-safe container on it. The container needs to be about the same diameter as the pot. Turn the heat to high until the water boils, then reduce to medium to maintain a soft boil. 

1

Add 27 ounces of premium white beeswax to the heat-safe container. Allow it to melt slowly and not exceed 180° F. Tip: This process can take a while depending on your melting setup. We recommend staying close to your container and stirring the beeswax every now and then to help it melt evenly.

2

Adhere each wick to the center of each jar using a wick sticker. Measure 2.7 ounces of Sultry Black Jasmine Fragrance Oil into a glass container. 

3

Once the beeswax is completely melted, turn off the double boiler and remove the container. Add a large pinch of Charcoal Black Candle Dye Flakes and gently stir to incorporate. Set it aside and allow the wax to cool to about 160-165° F. Tip: To make sure the wax is black and not gray, test a drop on white paper and allow to cool. Add more dye flakes if necessary. 

4

Add 2.7 ounces of Sultry Black Jasmine Fragrance Oil and stir in gently for about 1 minute. 

5

Allow the wax to cool to 155-160° F. Pour it into each container. Steady and center the wicks - you can do this with clothespins, popscicle sticks, pens, etc. Tip: Try your best to pour the wax into each container quickly and in one smooth motion. If you pour twice, you will end up with a line between the first and second pour. 

6

Allow the wax to cool and harden slightly - just enough to form a thin solid layer on top. Sprinkle a pinch of Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter on top. Allow the candles to fully cool and harden. Trim the wick, light, and enjoy!
