DIY Scented Wax

Ever wanted to make your own scent? Keep your favorite candles around for longer than originally intended? Then I have a solution!

I wasn't ready to let go of my Yankee Candle sampler votives that I got for $1 during a sale (and burned on a plate), so when they burned down to the last of their wicks, I improvised.

What you'll need:
  • Candle warmer 
  • Candle wax from a burned candle (such as leftovers from a Yankee votive sampler mentioned above)
  • Glass container (preferably from an older candle, such as the container from a B&BW mini)
  • Knife (to cut up old wax)

Taking the leftover glass container from my Oceanside mini, I removed the wick of the previous candle and chopped up the wax from the sampler votives.

After you've done that, transfer as much as will fit initially into the jar, and turn on your candle warmer!

In about 30-45 minutes (depending on your candle warmer), you should have a melted pool of delicious smelling wax. Keep it at this level, or keep adding chunks. It's up to you, really. Your room will smell awesome in no time and you'll have recycled your candle beyond their advertised "15 hours of fragrance."
