Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Broken Candles: How To Save?

4.23.2017

saving my broken Voluspa candle

I googled and read how to save broken glass candles. All the articles basically said that you can melt the candle into a new container. So I decided alright, I'll try doing that with what I have in the kitchen. As you can see, the first picture shows my broken Voluspa candle in Prosecco Rose. This candle smells divine! Like a bed of roses in the spring. It was such a pity that the container broke during delivery so I'm going to save it by moving it into a new container. I used BBW's candle glass jar.

P.S: If you're looking on how to clean a used candle jar, I did it by boiling a pot of water and pouring it into the used candle jar to melt and remove the old wax and any other yucky residue. After an hour, I clean it out with dish washing soap. The remaining label glue and black stains were removed by makeup cleaning oil and wash again with soap.

here's what I did and I'll explain in steps 1 - 6
  1. Prepare a clean, dry candle container ready.
  2. I double-boil a pot of water with a heat resistant bowl over it. The broken candle is placed in the bowl. It melts slowly, so I helped break the wax into smaller more manageable parts to melt away. Be careful of glass shards, you can remove them at this point but be careful of the hot melted wax.
  3. I nudge the wicks off the broken candle bottom, pick it up and placed in the new container to dry and harden. I made sure it would be centralized so it wouldn't look funny later!
  4. I removed the old broken candle jar from the melted wax bowl with a cloth. Be careful not to get burnt. Discard away properly, please. I wrapped mine in newspaper and plastic for recycle bin.
  5. I used a thick cloth to hold the bowl and pour the melted wax into the new candle jar. Be extra careful this part if you're using the same bowl as me. It's slippery.
  6. I let the newly de-pot candle rest, it quickly hardens within an hour. By a day, it's as good as new.
Alright, that's how I did it :) the candle is burning well on my table and the whole process was kinda therapeutic! Just like baking cookies haha. Since glass shards and heat is in use, be sure to exercise safety and care while preparing this. I got away unharmed haha.

p.s: I used a glass bowl because I didn't want to damage or have a hard time cleaning my metal pot. The glass bowl worked like a charm and was easy to clean after.
