Can I Melt Leftover Candles?

If you're anything like me, you love the smell of a freshly lit candle. But what do you do when your candle has burned down to the nub and you don't want to throw it away? Can you use leftover candles as wax melts? Read on to find out!




The short answer is yes—you can use leftover candles as wax melts. However, before we get too deep into this topic, let's talk about why it's important to buy new wax melts if possible. Wax melts are specifically designed for melting in warmers and releasing their scent without any smoke or soot being produced. On the other hand, regular candles have wicks that need to be lit in order to produce heat and scent. When using leftover candles as wax melts, there’s no wick present, so you won’t get the same experience as with a regular candle.




If you decide to use leftover candles as wax melts, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First of all, make sure that the candle is made from paraffin wax or beeswax. Soy or palm wax will not melt properly and can also be difficult to clean up from your warmer once it cools down again. You should also make sure that the candle does not contain any pieces of metal or plastic—these items can cause a spark when heated and may damage your warmer over time. Finally, try to avoid using scented candles with artificial dyes or fragrances—these ingredients can create an unpleasant odor when melted and could discolor your warmer if they come into contact with it.






Using leftover candles as wax melts isn't ideal but it's definitely doable if done correctly. Make sure your candle is made from paraffin or beeswax; avoid scented candles with artificial dyes or fragrances; and double check for any pieces of metal or plastic before melting them in your warmer. With these tips in mind, you'll be able to enjoy some delicious scents without breaking the bank! Happy melting!
