What To Do With Old Candle Wax

Candle dripping with wax

When you are left with little candle leftovers, after burning your favourite candles (same or different scents / colours) you can simply re-melt them, using a double boiler method. This is commonly done by placing a tin inside a saucepan. It is safer than direct heat. Be aware, find out a bit more about this process first, as wax if overheated can ignite (like chip oil). Once done you can turn the melted wax into a new candle, first off you will need a new wick, which most craft and hobby stores stock, then pour your mixture into a regular votive glass, once cooled you will be left with a another candle.

You can always pop left over, scented, wax out of a jar / glass holder, remove wick, and place in a wax tart burner.
