From Candle to Keepsake: Creative Ways to Reuse Your PANDA Botanicals Candle Jars and Tins

PANDA Botanicals' candle containers, with their elegant design and durable quality, are far too precious to end up in the bin once the candle has burnt out. So, we've curated a list of creative ideas for you to repurpose these jars and tins. But first, let’s walk through the simple process of cleaning out the leftover wax.

How to Remove Leftover Wax from Your Candle Container

Our wax blend isn't as hard as some companies that use paraffin or bees wax meaning cleaning your jar out is easy!  Just follow these steps:

1.  Using a butter knife or spoon,  carefully remove as much wax as possible from your container

2.  Boil the kettle and pour the hot water into your candle.

3. The wax will melt and rise to the top.  Let your candle cool and the wax re-harden on the surface.  Then simply remove!

4.Remember to remove the metal wick holder at the bottom of the container, and clean the container thoroughly with warm, soapy water to ensure all wax residue is gone.

Creative Ways to Reuse Your PANDA Botanicals Candle Containers

  1. Plant Pots: Our candle containers make adorable pots for small plants or succulents. They are the perfect size for your windowsill or desk. Remember to add some pebbles at the bottom for proper drainage.

  2. Makeup Brush or Pen Holder: Add some elegance to your vanity or desk by using the jars or tins to hold makeup brushes, pens, or other small items.

  3. Spice Jars: The airtight lid of our candle tins makes them perfect for storing spices or homemade seasoning mixes.

  4. Tea Light Holder: Place a tea light in the cleaned-out jar or tin for a beautiful, safe way to enjoy your tea lights.

  5. Bathroom Storage: Use our containers to store cotton balls, Q-tips, or bath salts. They are functional and add a touch of sophistication to your bathroom décor.


We hope this guide inspires you to give a second life to your PANDA Botanicals candle containers. By reusing, we can make small steps towards more sustainable living, true to the PANDA Botanicals ethos. So next time your candle has finished, don’t see it as the end – it’s the beginning of a new creative venture.
