Product Description

Everyone has one - a candle that you absolutely love, probably received as a gift, but you just don't want to burn it. Because you love it. The container matches your sitting room; it's a beautiful ornament; the scent is divine; your favourite auntie bought it for you. And when you've burned it it will be gone forever, right? Wrong! Burn it! Candles are meant to be lit! Burn it.......then refill the container!

Burn it, enjoy it and then make your own replacement candle in the container. 

Use this kit to create your own container candles using cups, mugs, recycled container candles and other heat resistant objects. The kit contains:

  • 1.5 metres of wick
  • 7 wick tabs
  • 500g Container candle wax
  • 5g Dye

There are enough materials in this recycling kit to make 2 tea-cup sized container candles. Just use Our guide to wick sizes. to choose the correct wick size for your container, choose a dye if you would like one, and a scent that takes your fancy. Watch our YouTube tutorial on making container (scroll down to view) candles and you'll receive a clear set of illustrated instructions with your kit too so you'll know exactly what to do. Making container candles really is very straightforward and you'll soon be enjoying your new container candle for the second time round!

Note: you can choose which wick you would prefer by selecting from the options above but the default choice (LX16) is suitable for most tea cup sized containers.

IMPORTANT: You can also add an optional scent at a discount on the cost of buying it separately.
