Can you reuse wax after it melts?

Have you ever wondered if you can reuse your wax melts after they melt? Many people are curious about this question, as wax can be expensive and it would be great to be able to reuse it. In this blog post, we'll discuss the answer to this question and provide some tips on how to best reuse wax.

The answer is yes, you can reuse wax after it melts. However, it is important to note that the wax will not be the same as when it was first melted. This is because when the wax is melted, it changes its chemical composition and can become brittle or discolored.

You can reuse your wax melts until the scent has dissipated. Simply keep your wax warmer on and enjoy the aroma for hours. Over time, the fragrance will gradually become weaker until it is no longer detectable. When this happens, you should replace the wax melt with a new one.

No matter how often you use them, wax melts do not evaporate; only the smell fades over time.


Earlier we suggested that when the scent has faded from your wax melts, you should get rid of them and get a new one. However, have you considered reusing wax melts for other projects and activities?

Don't Toss It! What to Do with your Leftover Wax

Make New Recycled Melts

Use leftover wax to create your own scents. A few drops of essential oil added to unscented wax in a wax warmer will help to keep the scent from evaporating as quickly.

You can make your own fragrances by utilizing any remaining wax. Adding a few drops of essential oil to unscented wax in a wax warmer will help the scent to last longer.

Make your own scented pouch

Fragrant pouches are an excellent way to keep your drawers, closets, and cabinets smelling pleasant all year round. You can make a pouch with an envelope, an old sock, or even a handkerchief, and put a used wax melt inside and seal it. If you're good with a needle and thread, you can sew the pouch closed. The simplest way is to tie a knot in the pouch. Who's going to see it, anyway? Then, you'll have a nice, subtle scent the next time you open your wardrobe or drawers.

Make your bin smell nice

The bins we use often get filled with unpleasant-smelling items, and the odors can linger. To help get rid of the smell between emptying and cleaning, you can attach a used wax melt to the inside of the lid of the bin. This will help to neutralize the odor and is a great way to use up the last bit of scent from your melts.

Personalized Potpourri

You can easily make your own potpourri using the leftover wax from scented candles. Gather materials such as spruce cones, pine cones, walnuts, acorns, and dried flower petals from your backyard or local craft store and combine them with the wax to create a beautiful and fragrant display.

What do you think?

At Serathena, we are constantly exploring methods to repurpose our items and packaging.

We know it's better for the environment plus they are fun activities to do with the family.

Why not have a family contest to see who can make the most attractive, the least attractive, and the most vibrant upcycled items? HAVE FUN WITH IT!

These strategies can be an enjoyable way to get the whole family involved in reusing items instead of throwing them away. Please let us know if you have tried any of these tips and how successful they were.

 Happy reusing :)
