Tranquility Candle Projecthttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/candle-and-home/tranquility-candle-project/PS000240.html
Tranquility Fragrance Oil is a soft and comforting blend of chamomile, honey, orange blossom, and green tea. It smells amazing in candles, soap, and more. To complement the calming scent, the candles are colored with Powder Blue Candle Dye Flakes. Simply add a few flakes to your melted wax and stir until you get a shade you like.
For this project, we used a blend of Golden Wax 444 and 10% coconut wax. Coconut wax is an additive that creates a slower burn and softer texture. The Short Narrow Wooden Wick provides a soft flame with a comforting crackling sound.

Tranquility Candle Project
These soy and coconut wax candles are scented with Tranquility Fragrance Oil.
4 Frosted Votives
4 Short Narrow Wood Wicks
18 oz. Golden Wax 444
1.8 oz. Coconut Wax
1.6 oz. Tranquility Fragrance Oil
Powder Blue Candle Dye Flakes
Place a half-filled pot of water on the stove, bring it to a low simmer, and put a pouring pitcher or other heat-safe container inside. Add 18 ounces of Golden Wax 444 and let it melt.
Add 2 generous pinches of Powder Blue Candle Dye Flakes and stir well. Tip: The melted wax looks much more saturated and lightens as it cools. Drip a small amount of wax onto a white surface like parchment paper to test the color.
Weigh out 1.6 ounces of Tranquility Fragrance Oil into a glass container. Once the wax reaches 185° F, remove it from the heat and slowly stir in the fragrance for 1-2 minutes to fully incorporate. Add 1.8 ounces of coconut wax and slowly stir until it's completely melted. Set aside until it cools to 160° F.
Place wick stickers or glue dots on the ends of metal clips of the wood wicks and adhere firmly to the center bottom of the votives. Insert wood wicks into the clips.
Once the wax is at 160° F, pour it slowly into the votives. Tip: Golden Wax 444 has a recommended pour temperature of about 135° F. We found pouring hotter decreased the chances of frosting when working with dye flakes.
Wait 12-24 hours to allow the candles to fully cool. Trim the wick to 1/4" above the wax if necessary. Allow the candles to 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.
