The smell amazing, even when they aren't lit, they give off a subtle aroma. They are my favourite candle make by far but they are kinda expensive
Because of this, i want to make sure i get the most out of each jar.
Making your own Wax Melts
I don't know why it never clicked before, Its just like the wax tarts you can get from Yankee only a bit smaller (or even the same size depending on the mould you use).
The jars are also great from a storage point of view as you can keep little bits and pieces in them.
Getting the wax out is easier than you may think.
One way is to CAREFULLY place the jar in a pot of boiling water till the wax melts ... This method is quite quick but you have to be really careful as your placing a glass jar in boiling water. You will need to use an oven glove to lift the jar out and our the wax. Its faster to do this in stages as opposed to waiting for the whole clump of wax to melt ...
I chose to do the jar in the water method though as i wanted the wax melts to be all pretty as opposed to broken bits (which will work just as good).
Once the wax had melted i used an oven glove to lift the jar and pout the wax directly into a mould to set. You can use any type of mould but i find the silicon ones easier to work with.
