With Gingerbread, Christmas Spice and Mulled Wine Fragrance Oils 🎄🎅

We have been busy working in the lab and have formulated a recipe that works with Mulled Wine, Christmas spice and Gingerbread fragrance oils. This formula has been tested using 9cl, 30cl and 50cl jars for not only great burning and scent throw performance but is also compliant with EU regulation.

If, like us, you are feeling in the festive spirit, then watch along with our instructional video and discover some crowd favourite scents of the season. This recipe can be used with all three fragrance oils as the same ratios and wicks will apply.

Ingredients

- 1 x 9cl Jar
- 1 x 30cl Jar
- 1 x 50cl Jar
- RCX Wax
- Gingerbread (or Mulled Wine, Christmas Spice) fragrance oil.
- 1 x CL12 wick
- 4 x CL6 wicks
- 5 x Stickums
- 3 x Wickclaw tools
- 1 x double boiler
- 1 x scale
- 1 x stirring stick

Preparations

First you need to prepare your jars. You will need a CL12 wick for 30cl jar and CL6 for a 9cl jar. Attach the stickums to the wick sustainers. Make sure to centre them in the middle of the jars and press down securely.

To ensure the wicks are centred in the 50cl jar, you can download a template here. Use a pen to poke the holes indicated in the 3 smaller circles. Place the template in your jar and use a marker to indicate where the wicks should be placed. Remove the template. You will need 3x CL6 wicks for 50cl jar. Attach the stickums to the wick sustainers. Place them on the marked dots and press down securely.

Use the corresponding wickclaw tools to secure and centre the wicks.

Measurement

30cl candle contains 220g of mixture. For this recipe, we’ll be using 10% of fragrance content and 90% Wax. This is the amount you will need to make one candle (see below). If you’re making more than one 30cl candle, simply multiply the below measurements by the number of candles you want to make.

9cl candle contains 75g of mixture and we’ll be using 10% of fragrance content and 90% Wax. This is the amount you will need to make one candle (see below). If you’re making more than one 9cl candle, simply multiply the below measurements by the number of candles you want to make.

50cl candle contains 425g of mixture and we’ll be using 10% of fragrance content and 90% Wax. This is the amount you will need to make one candle (see below). If you’re making more than one 50cl candle, simply multiply the below measurements by the number of candles you want to make.

Mixing

We will be making 3 candles: 9cl, 30cl and 50cl. Add individual ratios to calculate the total amount of wax and fragrance you’ll need.

RCX Wax: 198g (30cl candle) + 67.5g (9cl candle) + 382.5g (50cl candle) = 648 grams

Fragrance oil: 22g (30cl candle) + 7.5g (9cl candle) + 42.5g (50cl candle) = 72 grams

Add the required amount of wax to your double boiler and heat it to 60C. Then mix in the fragrance oil.

As we are working with a plant-based wax, which likes to be poured cooler, let your wax to cool to 38C before pouring.

Pour


Once your wax cooled to 38C you can pour your candles! The mixture should look cloudy/creamy.


Setting


Leave the candles to set for up to 48 hours.


Trim


Trim the wicks down to 10mm. For the best burning performance, we recommend trimming the wick down further to 5mm before lighting the candles.

That’s it! You can follow the same process, use the same wicks and ratios to make candles with Gingerbread, Mulled Wine or Christmas Spice fragrance oils. We tested- so we can guarantee amazing performance. Enjoy!
