So you have spent a fortune on that special scented candle, and now you are left with a useless glass with some wax at the bottom. It is really easy to remove the wax and make wax melts from the residue.
You will need
1. A spent scented candle in a glass.
2. A double saucepan or metal bowl over a saucepan of hot water.
3. A mould for the wax melts, anything will do ice cube tray, bun tin or cake tin.
a. Remove the old wax.
i) Place the glass in a bowl of warm water and wait until it has heated up a little, This is to prevent the glass cracking in the next step.
ii) Take the warm glass and and pour a really hot water on top on the wax residue.
The next bit is fun! Watch as the wax left in the gently floats to the top of the glass. You may have to prod the edge slightly first to encourage it to rise. Remove the wax stub with a spoon and place on a kitchen towel to dry.
b. Make your wax melt.
i) Melt the wax residue in a double saucepan. Remove the wick sustainer and what remains of the wick.
ii) Pour into your mould. You can use ice moulds, as I have done here, or bun tins or foils.
iii) Wait until fully set and then remove it from the mould.
iv) Place on your oil burner, place a T light in the oil burner, and light it.
