Today, I saved my favourite scented candle.
A couple of weeks ago I splurged on a L'Occitane Cinnamon/Orange candle. The scent is devine but I was a little bummed when the candle burned out but almost half of the wax was still left! This probably happens because the container is too wide for the wick. Anyway. I removed the remaining wax from the container, broke it in little pieces and removed the old wick. I melted the wax in an old clean tin, removed a wick from a new tea candle (it was exactly the right length), placed it in the middle of my L'Occitane container and then pourred the molten wax back in. Tadaaah! Looks like new.
Sometimes it's the small crafts (if you can call it that) that are the most rewarding.
