Rinse, Reuse, Repeat

Updated: Oct 31, 2022

So you’ve purchased one of our handmade candles, enjoyed hours of burn time, and filled your home with some of your favorite scents from our fall and winter lines…. Now what?


One of our favorite things about the glass tumbler jars we use is that you can repurpose them. Talk about sustainable!

To remove the leftover wax (we suggest doing this when there is no less than 1/4 inch of wax left):


Boil enough water so you have about 1 inch of water in your pot. Once boiling, carefully place the candle into the water. Wait until the wax starts to soften (about 10-20 seconds). From here, carefully remove the jar from the pot using gloves and pour the melted wax into the garbage (jar will be hot!) Once the wax is removed you will need to carefully remove the wick holder. We use hot glue to hold the wicks in place so by heating the jar you help to soften the glue. Now it's time to give the jar a good clean with soap and water. I find that also using a magic eraser helps to remove any stubborn residue. Once the jar is dry you are ready to give it a second life!


Here are some of our favorite ways to upcycle your candle jar and get the most bang for your buck!


1. Accessorize your bathroom vanity - these jars are perfect for storing cotton balls, q-tips, make up remover pads, etc)



2. Store craft supplies (cotton balls, crayons, glue sticks, etc)


4. Keep coffee beans fresh (could also be used for coffee grounds or tea)



5. Office Storage (pens, pencils, permanent markers....)


6. Or simply for your everyday drinkware



You can also use the jars to store loose change, as a vase for flowers , or add it to a centerpiece with a votive candle to fancy up the holiday table. The possibilities are endless!
