DIY recycled candles

Leave a comment

It’s a beautiful thing to be self reliant. I feel so empowered knowing I can make something I LOVE with my own two hands.

I am into recycling candles – harvesting those remaining bits of wax from old candles, melting down candle pillars from thrift stores, and repurposing existing containers – giving old things new life! Not contributing to the pollution of manufacturing them brand-new.

To make your own, get a container like a mason jar, and a few candle wicks from The craft store. Suspend your wick from a skewer lead a crossed your empty container.  Melt your candle remnants or old pillar candle in a double boiler on your stove. Enjoy the sent that various remnants create, or add your own essential oil to the melted wax. Then fill the candle jar! When it’s completely hardened, trim the wick, and you have your self a beautiful, new to you, Upcycled candle!

If you don’t want to go through all that trouble,  my line of candles will be coming soon to! Check out the site for other wellness products available right now 🙂
