Reuse and recycle candle wax

More articles

This article assumes some knowledge of candle making. If you're a complete beginner, why not try one of our candle making kits first. They all come with a free "How to make candles" booklet.

There are different wax types eg Parrafin, bee's wax, soya...

Parrafin wax is the most common candle wax. It comes in several forms, resulting in different melting points and consistancies. It is possible to mix all common types of candle parrafin wax.

Warning! Don't mix parrafin wax with any other type.

Generally, it is probably safer to reuse wax by making container candles (or wax melts) rather than moulded candles.

If you gather all or more than a quarter of your wax from container candles, make more container candles only. Otherwise the wax could be too soft and a moulded candle may split while burning.

If making wax melts, melt, mix and pour into your moulds.

If making new candles, prepare your containers with new wicks.

Gather all your recycled wax. Melt, mix well and pour into your containers.

Tip Wax may loose some scent over time, but otherwise will make perfect candles even if stored for months or longer.

Warning! Making basic candles is not difficult, but getting perfect results takes time and practice. Never leave a lit candle unatended, below or close to other objects. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.
