So much in fact that in high school, my church youth kids joked that I was goth. I suppose the mood lighting and incense didn't help...
Soon "goth" was replaced with "witch" when the kids discovered a broom in my closet. It was a prop from a church play...I promise! =)
Out of their shelves and shelves of scents, I found my favourite in their clearance section.
They were 3 for $15 so I got myself 2 Pink Sangrias and 1 Sea Island Cotton. I LOVE the Pink Sangria. It has a subtle citrus scent- sort of a mix of grapefruit and pink lemonade.
Amazon.com describes it as: A refreshing mix of zesty mandarin, crisp apple and sugared grapes & berries
It took less than a week before I burned through one candle. I should have picked up s'more!
The jars are really well made but unfortunately they don't have a recycling program for them. I'm really surprised and slightly disappointed by this.
Until they come up with a recycling program for their candle jars (I predict they will in the near future!) I'm going to have to find use for them!
So how do you make these jar reusable? Easy!
I know this is nothing revolutionary but I still wanted to share this with y'all!
I used a safety pin to break up the remaining hard wax:
It actually crumbled a lot easier than I thought.
There was still a little bit of residual wax sticking around so I nuked it in the microwave until the wax melted.
Then wiped the jar clean with a paper towel.
Cleaned with soap and water; removed all labels- I highly recommend Goo Gone. You can get it at Canadian Tire or Home Depot. And voila- as good as new!
Now what to do with this jar...The larger jars are great for storing q-tips.
These little guys are great for storing make up pads, hair ties, bobby pins or other little nick nacks.
I'm using it as my brush/make up holder:
What will you do with your Bath and Body candle jars?
