Candle Care Repurposing

Candle Care

  1. Burn your candle so it has a full melt pool (wax has melted to the edge of the candle) the first few times
  2. Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4" If you feel like the flame is too big you can always blow out your candle, trim your wick and relight
  3. Once your candle is blown out, cover with the lid to reduce excessive smoke and keep dust and debris out of your candle
  4. Burn your candle within sight and follow the instructions on the bottom of the candle
  5. Keep your candle out of direct sunlight

Repurposing your Vessel

When your candle has about 1/2" left of wax, it's time to say goodbye, clean it out and use it again for something else. 

Option 1:

  • Let your candle burn until the wax is melted and then blow out candle, pour out wax and wipe the vessel with paper towel to get out excess. Pull off wick tab with pliers.
  • NOTE: careful when pouring out wax into trash as to not get any wax on the outside of jar as it will stain the vessel because it is not sealed on the outside. I suggest pouring and holding paper towel under the top of vessel to collect wax that might get on it OR completely turn vessel upside down so no wax gets on outside.

Option 2:

  1. If wax has hardened, remove label. 
  2. Heat oven to 225 degrees F. Place vessel on an oven-safe dish and let wax melt. Dispose of the same as option 1.
  3. Depending how much wax is left will determine melting time. Check on melting every 5 minutes. Use a clean cotton oven mitt (not silicone or silicone tabs as this might stain vessel) to remove the candle and pour out wax
