Put the candle in the freezer and let the leftover wax freeze.

Remove the wax from the glass jar. Depending on the mouth of the jar, you might have to break the wax up with a butter knife or a screwdriver to get the pieces out.

Next, I place a piece on a wax burner and enjoy the scent as it cascades through the room. I put the rest of the wax in a plastic bag and store it in the refrigerator.

Here’s another tip. Square wax melts are popular and easy to use. The problem comes when it’s time to get the wax out of the warmer. I use the same method that I use for my candles.
