Recycling Your Jars
So...you've burned your candle down to the bottom. What do you do now? Re-use the container, of course! Our candle containers are beautiful, thick-walled, hand molded glass and can be reused in many different ways.
Firstly, you'll need to clean out your jar. If you burned your candle correctly, you should have about 1-2 cm of wax remaining in the bottom of the jar. Pop your candle into the oven on a very low heat - about 60 degrees (or as low as your oven will allow). After about 10-15 minutes, the remaining wax should have melted. Pour it into the bin, never down the drain. Once the wax has been removed, wash the jar out with some warm soapy water and dry it off. Voila! Your beautiful candle jar is ready to be repurposed. Here are a few ideas on how!
