Reusing candle wax

“Candles are wonderful at setting the mood of a room, but once the candle burns down to the bottom it can be unsightly and hard to remove from the container. Some candle containers are so delightful, so it is nice to reuse them.  Candles can also be messy and wax is difficult to remove if the candle spills over (…) Once you have used up most of your favourite candle with a scent but there is still too much left to throw away, purchase tea light molds and tea light wicks.
