Soy candle -handmade in repurposed jar

Listing image #736743
** I have seen reports of Ecoya glass jars exploding - please only burn your candles down to a couple of cms from the bottom and never leave them unattended or burning for longer than 3 hours **

I've been making bespoke soy candles and mixing my own fragrances for myself, family and friends for a few years after being constantly disappointed by the lack of oomph in store bought candles.
I am also passionate aboit reusing vessels rather than gorgeous candle jars being used once and discarded when they still have so much life left!

This item is one soy candle in a PRE LOVED candle jar - at least a 180-200g wax weight (med to large candle) but you could luck out and get a 300+g (really large candle) depending on the jar on hand at the time.
There will be a blanket fee (each candle costs the same no matter the size) to cover the wax and fragrance price.
For me, this product is about sharing the love of candles rather than making a profit.

I am also trialing a swap system, where if you can return candle jars to me, you get a free candle and free postage on your next candle order (please choose free standard shipping although your order will be sent by courier) - any and all jars welcome but they do need to be heat safe.
I do small batches and will have one candle available of each flavour (will be updated with each new batch)
Some jars will have sticker labels from their previous life.

*Please note flavour description lists only the main scents to give you an idea of the candle

These candles are top quality deliciousness.
I also make candles in new jars, which are fantastic for gifts.
All candles will be bubble wrapped but please be aware that I cannot be responsible for breakages in transit. Free standard shipping ONLY applies to the jar swap or to delivery around Karori otherwise I am working at a deficit.
