    Great idea. Thank you @Courtenay. I used to put my jars in the freezer which hardens the wax, but if the top of the jar is smaller than the widest part of the remaining wax you had to chop it up before it would come out.

    That's exactly what I used to do, Becky! Drove me nuts!

    Obviously me too since I rarely burn a candle anymore. I now use wax warmers of one sort or another. With four young cats it's actually safer too.

    I do this. Candle jars can be filled with peppermints or other candies, wrapped with a red ribbon and make great gifts for the postman, the hairdresser or to have on hand if you need an 'emergency' gift at Christmas, if you have lots of empty candle jars, they make sweet gifts to take to the nursing home or to shut-ins.
