Using up candles

by GettingFreedom on February 18, 2009

I don’t know about you, but I have a major infatuation with candles. I love them, and they are all over my home. The only problem? I can almost never get the candle to burn all the way down to the bottom. Even if I follow all the rules to candle burning, it just doesn’t happen.

My solution? This beauty:

It is stylish, fits right where the candle was, and it warms up the candle, melting the wax and letting off the scent. It works wonderfully. Almost better than burning the candle itself.
Another positive in using a candle warmer, no open flame for little fingers.
You can put small, or big candles in these warmers as well as any pieces of leftover wax that you have. Just make sure that you have a glass candle holder in place, and throw any small pieces of wax you have in there. It will warm up and melt all the wax together, therefore using it all up instead of wasting it!

If you are feeling really creative, you can pour the melted wax into molds and make your own tartlets. Be sure to be careful, and follow the safety precautions.
When the candle has lost of all its scent, you can dispose of the melted wax and easily reuse the glass jar for any other projects you have going on.
They work for me!
