The end or the beginning of a new life? Reuse, Reduce, Recycle

You have just got to the last few centimetres of your favourite Lys Creations NZ Candle and whilst purchasing a new one is only a few steps away, what do you do with the old empty candle container?

Here are a couple of ideas for those empty candle containers:

Reuse - glass container
You could reuse the glass container and fill it with cotton balls, make-up pads, add a lid and a few drops of your favourite essential oils and you have a new aroma therapy candle filled with fresh scented potpourri.

Reduce - candle tin
Our candle tins can be recycled. It is important to remove any remaining wax from the inside of the tin before recycling. Clean by wiping interior of tin with a warm disposable cloth to wipe out any excess wax, remove wick-holder. Give a quick rinse with hot water and place in recycling.

Reuse either for:

  • Use it to store cotton balls, hair ties or spare change.
  • Use it as a decorative plant pot.
  • Store makeup brushes in it.

There are many creative ways to reuse your empty candles and containers instead of throwing them away.

We would love to see some photos of your creative recycled candle containers.  Email to
