how to upcycle your stone essentials candle jars

if you love candles as much as we do, then we’re sure that you have a big collection of stone essentials candles that have almost been used up. don’t just throw out those jars, upcyle them! in just a few quick steps, we’ll teach you how to clean your jars and give you ideas of how to reuse them. 

1. dig out the wax and wick fastener

using a spoon, carefully remove as much wax as possible. if you wish to use the wax for another project you can set it aside, otherwise, you can dispose of it. next, you’ll need to use the spoon to remove the wick holder fastened to the bottom of your jar.

2. wash up

fill your sink with warm water and soap, then submerge the jar in the soapy water. soy wax has a low melting temperature so you’ll notice that the wax will become detached from the jar within a minute or two. scrub the jar clean using a cloth or sponge. since the jar has become warmer, the label will easily peel off and can be disposed of. don’t forget to make sure to collect the wax floating in your sink before pulling the drain stopper to avoid clogging your drain.

3. dry 

using a soft cloth, dry the jar removing all water residue and set aside for upcycling.
