Use up scented candles

What to do with the leftover bits of scented candles? Get the most out of them by melting them in a small container, just like those small scented wax tarts. The scent will last through two or three heatings.

If you don't have a tart warmer, put the candle ends in a small pan inside a double boiler, or set it in a pan with a little water and heat.

Another idea I've heard of is using a mason jar (that you hammered holes through the lid) and throw wax melts (or scraps of candles) in the jar. Then keep in a cup holder or in the far back of your car. When it gets hot out, the smell fills up your car. I haven't tried it yet but will when I have an extra jar :-)

Great idea, thanks!
