Prep a vessel to be reused

Hey guys, it's Liz from E & V Candle Co.

Have you ever noticed on our candle descriptions we note *reusable vessel?

How exactly do you do that? Well, I have found an easy method to get that done. 

Don't throw those beautiful vessels away! Keep them as a cosmetic brush, pencil or even jewelry holder! Those are not the only ways, get creative & give those vessels a second life!


Follow the easy steps below & let us know how it turns out! 

What you need:

  • Finished candle
  • Baking pan
  • Large bowl
  • Soap
  • Aluminum Foil (or parchment paper)
  • Paper Towels
  • Oven


1. Heat up your oven to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Line baking pan with aluminum foil or 2 layers of parchment paper.

3. Place candle upside down & set pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

4. Take out the pan & place in a heat resistant surface. Let the wax that is leftover harden & cool. 

5. Dispose of any wax in the trashcan, not the sink!!

6. Once the vessel is ready to touch, grab a paper towel & wipe away any excess wax

7. Fill your large bowl with warm soapy water & scrub your vessel down. ( you can use a butter knife to remove the wick clip/wick sticker)

8. Dry your vessel & you are ready to get creative! Use your vessel for whatever you may like!
