Yet, let's now move on to the guide toreusing your jar candles.

If you’ve ever wondered how you can reuse your old candle containers, we have created the ultimate guide covering everything from cleaning out the old wax, to great ideas for repurposingscented soy candle jars.

After each Lovespoon Candle has been fully enjoyed and only a small amount of wax is left languishing at the bottom of the old jar, your first step to being able to reuse the decorative jar your old scented candle called home, is to remove all the old wax from inside it. There are a number of different ways to achieve this....

You Can Freeze The Wax!

Because candle wax becomes brittle when it is frozen, it can easily be removed from its container. To start, place the old candle vessel into the freezer for a couple of hours. Once it has frozen, use a butter knife to gently pry out the remaining wax. Put some warm water on a paper towel and wipe out any leftover debris. This is a good method for candles made using Parrafin wax or Beeswax.

Soap & Water

This is the simplest method and works well for candles made of wax with a low melting point like Soy Wax. First remove as much of the leftover wax as possible using a butter knife. Then, just fill the container with soap and hot water from your tap, let it sit for a minute, before scrubbing the inside clean, and just like that you now have a clean jar!


Things To Bear In Mind

Remove Wick Tabs

Once you have removed all the wax, don’t forget to take out the wick holder. If its stuck down, just slip a butter knife underneath and pop it out. A little boiling water will usually help if it doesn’t want to come out easily.


A Word Of Warning

Is the glass jar fragile?

If you’re worried that the glass container is fragile, we’d recommend using the Wash & Go Method – it’s slower, but your less likely to break the container.


No Drains

Never put the wax melted in water down the drain. It will cool and solidify, and probably end up clogging the pipe. Not a good situation!


Don’t Overheat

You should be careful not to overheat glass containers. There is a risk that the glass will explode if the jar gets too hot. In fact, both freezing the wax and pouring boiling water into the jar run a great risk of shattering the jar so only use those methods if you are sure the container can handle it.


Don’t Microwave, Again, we repeat Don't Microwave!

Never ever use a microwave to melt wax inside old candle jars. The wick holder that holds the candle wick in place is made out of metal, which could not only ruin your microwave, but start a fire.


Great Ways To Reuse And Recycle Your Old Candle Containers

Your favorite scented Lovespoon candle is nearing the end, all it’s perfectly fragranced soy wax has vaporized over countless evenings of bliss and you’re left with just the empty glass vessel. A beautifully decorated, elegant container that you’re in love with almost as much as the scent it once produced. 

Of course there’s no need to worry, there are plenty of great ways to reuse your old scented candle containers.

After you’ve followed our cleaning instructions above, you’ll be able to recycle the candle holders – here are a few of our favourite ideas…

Turn Candle Jars Into Planters

Old scented candle containers are the perfect size to become your latest plant's new home. With our current obsession with succulents and pretty much every other plant out there, we almost don’t have enough old candle jars – that really is saying something! 

Because of the need to use brown soil, most people tend to choose amber or coloured glass candle jars for planting, however clear jars are great when growing in water.

Tidy Your Vanity Area

What better way to keep your beauty space organised than to upcycle your favorite scented soy candle jars? Larger candles make perfect holders for make-up brushes, eyeliners and pencils, while small candle containers make great places to keep cotton wool pads or bobby pins.

Pencil Holders For Your Desk

You're unlikely to find us at our desk without a calming candle lit, so it makes sense that when all the wax has been used up we’d recycle the candle jars to make pretty holders for our pens and pencils.

Keep Matches Tidy

Did you know that matches can be beautiful too?! Treat yourself to some pretty colored or even scented matches, and keep them neatly in an old candle vessel.

A Vase For Flowers

Flowers & candles make us happy. Repurposing your old candles and using them as vases for some fresh flowers is the ideal way to reuse them.

If you are looking for fancy soy candles that provide that unique gift for that special someone, you have come to the right place. TheLovespoon Candles Monogram SeriesCollection are so beautiful that many customers re-purpose andre-use our monogram candles for potting plants, a vase for flowers, tidying their vanity area, pencil holders for their desk, or to simply keep their candle matches tidy.
