    • This video is about melting the candles down and making them smaller to use in your own warmer.

  • Omg...your collections is amazing

    • Thank you!!

  • Hay there! Was you know if BBW is coming out with Honolulu sun this year? Or wAs this scent ever repackaged and renamed? Thanks!

  • Your video is by far the most helpful one for converting my candles to melts. I don't have open flames in my house anymore. Thank you so so so much for a game-changing way to get my house scented :)

  • Hi! Great and informative video!!! You have given me awesome ideas for all the candles that I have and I really love your method and I have to say that this is probably the best method to getting more use out of candles and really releasing the scents of candles properly this is much better than just the conventional burning candles method. Anyway I have a request. Can you please make a video of you doing all of this and going through the whole process of making your B&BW candles into wax melts. I really would love to see how you do that so I can learn and start doing that myself. I’m more of a visual learner so I have to see how you do it before I start to do it myself. That would be really helpful!! Thank you!!!

  • I’ve tried the plug in bulb candle burner didn’t work for me. The wax didn’t even melt 😞

    Beca NaeBeca Naeปีที่แล้ว
    • I used mine at first but I was like you! It just didn’t give me the scent throw or melting that I wanted !!

  • Great this is what I needed to know!

    • I’m glad it helped!!!

  • New subscriber here.. where did you get your tin mold?

    Thomas HarmonThomas Harmonปีที่แล้ว
    • I think I got it at Walmart. It is the little mini muffin tin pan and it is jus the right size for the melts!! Thank you for subscribing and welcome!!

  • What the fricken heck!!!!! I was enjoying this video but then it hit 9 minutes and there wasn't no melting or pouring yet. I was looking forward to a full melting tutorial. I strongly hope you consider adding to the title or description that there is no melting only talking. Have an okay day but not a great one. Goodbye.

  • Why not store the tarts in the jar you took the candle from ?

    bleeka325bleeka3252 ปีที่แล้ว
    • Not all of the tarts will fit back in the jar since they are different shapes and not the solid anymore .

      PrettypolkadotsPrettypolkadots2 ปีที่แล้ว
  • That’s a lot of candles behind you, why are you buying them if your just gonna turn them to melts? Why are you just not buying melts? Seems like somebody has an addiction to buying candles :)

    S CS C2 ปีที่แล้ว
    • S C I was just at the store and priced everything out. So you can get 4oz of wax tart for the same price as buying a 14oz candle, so if you’re willing to to put the effort you get an extra 10oz making them yourself. Plus some people like to buy the candles for collecting 😊

  • The measurement cup is completely coated ... how do you get rid of extra wax?

    Trista LoveTrista Love2 ปีที่แล้ว
    • soak with boiling water, and u will get a layer of wax float to the top, remove with a plastic spoon and throw out

      Diana FaDiana Fa2 ปีที่แล้ว
  • Thank you for inspiring me with this. I did this a few times exactly as you did. But then I wondered if I could eliminate the need for the tart tray and measuring cup. I lined a 9" x 12" baking pan with wax paper and poured in all of the melted wax directly from the jar. The melted wax spreads out to about 1/2" thickness. After cooling for 20 minutes on the countertop, the wax is partially hardened but still soft enough to "score" with a butter knife into 2" squares. Then I place the pan into the freezer for 20 minutes more to fully harden the wax. When it comes out of the freezer, the 2" squares easily break apart where I scored them. I found that I can stack more of the squares into the quart sized wide mouth mason jars than I can when the wax is in the tart shape. And the 1/2" thick 2" squares are the perfect size for my wax melter. Cheers.

  • Wow an expensive hobby, I love a good wax melt but it doesn't seem you are aware of the latest health studies regarding scented candles, "To their surprise, trendy candles and cleaning products - touted as air cleaners - also had a significantly damaging effect on the air pollution, driving up home owners' risk of health problems."

    Nicky RobertsNicky Roberts3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • +Nicky Roberts I was sick of PWS but after I saw my ac filter and then put in a new one and a week later checked it and all I had been doing was melting and my filter was still white I am definitely going to be melting candles. There are a few that I will have to burn but most will be melted!!

      PrettypolkadotsPrettypolkadots3 ปีที่แล้ว
  • Can you do a video on how you clean your wax warmer after each scent? Like how you get the old wax out before putting in a new tart. Thank you! 😊

    • Andrea Mason Dollar Tree has labels you can purchase. I buy them and label everything I change up. I even do it when I buy meat in bulk. You can get quite a bit log labels in a pack if you buy just the plain ones. They do have fancy ones but you don't get many labels in a pack!!!

  • I love your wax warmer, where did you get it? and what color is it? It's kinda hard to tell. Do you check your wicks before you buy your candles, I'm sure you do, just don't understand why you keep getting pws. lol. So all those bath and body candles your going to melt down? No worries. I was just curious. I definitely love wax melts, but I could never give up burning my candles, because yes I love the ambience. I have ocd too. I feel your pain. It can be very difficult some days, others not so much. Is yours just dealing with like germs and stuff, cuz if that's the case your house must be spotless !! lol. I'm so happy because I just got unlimited data on my phone, so now I can watch even more of you !! Love you Brenda !

  • GREAT VIDEO! Michael's may still have that Ashland warmer for $4.99 (they did on Tuesday). I do my tarts the same way but I use silicone molds and a separate kitchen plug in skillet. GREAT TIPS!

  • Great video and that is a good idea especially with the measuring cup because I would of probably made the same mistake and learned the hard way. Also I am so tired of getting puny wicks from BBW as well as Yankee Candle and the Yankee Candles are not cheap. I love the scent but they get to where they do not want to burn a brand new candle and it just has a very low light on it and I thought something was wrong with the wicks lately on the candles. Good to know instead of throwing my candles away.

  • Brenda you tickle me. I love ur videos. This is a great idea. I think this will be my summer project. Taking all my candles and making tarts. I have summers off so this would be the perfect time and another project is cleaning soot of my walls and painting so I definitely don't want to burn very much if any candles. Tfs. 🤗

  • Have you ever tried popping the whole candle into the freezer? The glue on the wicks freeze right off the glass too and it pops out clean as ever. Then you just pull the wicks out and chunk em up. Melting and pouring into molds is much funner though but this is a different method

    LisaLuvsLisaLuvs3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • Freezing first definitely the best way. I bought a couple of the bath and body works warmers last year & they quit working in about 4 months. Probably could have returned but just kept the little bowls that the melts go in. Now I freeze & chunk a candle & put in the little bowl which I place on a regular inexpensive coffee warmer. When I want to change fragrances, put little bowl in freezer & in 5 min pop out & repeat. Frozen one is a perfect tart shape & save it to reuse.

    Anthony MasciaAnthony Mascia3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • You can get the yankee candle scenterpiece warmer. They have easy meltcups that come with pre poured wax in them. So what I do is pop them in the freezer when the throw is gone, toss the wax, clean the container so there's no residual scent, and put in other melts in the cup and pop that in the warmer.

    • +CandleCafe I am so over puny wicks and candles with no scent. If I threw every one of them that I had problems with in the front yard I would look like I had a candle garden!!! I always get mad and want to throw it out the front door. Good thing I have control because the neighbors would have me committed by now!!

    lisa fiveashlisa fiveash3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • +lisa fiveash I leave mine uncovered over night. I just put it some place that is out of the way so I won't have a run in with it. I am a master mess maker!!

    • +Jenn S use a spatula and you can keep more of the wax rather than throwing it away in a paper towel

      bleeka325bleeka3252 ปีที่แล้ว
    • +Jenn S I have been too slow as well. Dried wax is a pain for me. I wasn't paying attention last week when I dropped another cube in melted wax. I dropped an inch or two above the melted wax and of course it went all over my counter. I like to never have gotten that off the counter!! Lesson learned!!

      PrettypolkadotsPrettypolkadots3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • Thanks, Brenda. I was too slow my first time but it's melting fast on the warmer

      Jenn SJenn S3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • +Jenn S I use a paper towel to wipe it out while the wax is still warm in it and the put soap and hot water in it to get it cleaned out before it sets. I try to work fast so that won't set up in the cup. If it hardens on there I will probably set it on the warmer to get it to melt again and then use the paper towels again.

      PrettypolkadotsPrettypolkadots3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • Random question but how do you remove excess wax from your glass cup measuring tool?

      Jenn SJenn S3 ปีที่แล้ว
  • I will need to find some trays to do this with my candles.. I've noticed the last few that I've burned, when they get about half way down all I can smell is the wick burning, I hate that, I just want my yummy scent to come through... Thanks so much for the video, very helpful!

    Trisha's Nail InspoTrisha's Nail Inspo3 ปีที่แล้ว
    • +Trisha Wilson I got the mini muffin tray at Walmart for $5.99. I hear you with the candles burning poorly so I decided to do this to at least get some good scent out of them when they are melting!!

      PrettypolkadotsPrettypolkadots3 ปีที่แล้ว
  • You can also get cheap silicone ice cube trays (lots of designs and shapes if you're into the look of the tart) at the Dollarstore, and the tarts are super easy to pop out when they've cooled. Thanks for sharing, I enjoy your channel!
