How to Reuse Your Candle Jar

In case you can’t tell, we are all about reusable, sustainable and ethical practices. One of the best ways to partner with us in our quest to lower our carbon footprint is to reuse your candle jars for a cool and creative purpose. Once your jar is clean (see cleaning instructions below), it can be reused for almost anything in your space.

Some creative ideas we love:

  • Displaying kitchen utensils
  • Holding stationary
  • Storing makeup brushes
  • A cute vase for your florals
  • To grow plant cuttings
  • Store bathroom essentials
  • Hold tea or coffee bags
  • Keep wrapped candy


How to Clean Your Candle Jar

First, fill your jar with boiling water, then the wax will melt & start to rise to the top.

Once the water has completely cooled and the wax has hardened, pop out the wax disc, using a wax melt or a paper towel, then throw the waste in the bin. Never pour wax down the drain as this will clog your pipes.

Wash with warm soapy water & towel dry.
