    Immerse your jar in hot water up to level of wax.Do not get the wax wet.The hot water should loosen your wax for tipping out (or gently gouging out with a tool such as a screwdriver.Remove dirty wax by scraping with a knife and pull out remaining wick.Trim the wick and you will have a shorter wick to use again.Melt wax in double saucepan or bowl in boiling water.Pour into muffin tins or other mould and drop your wick in tied to a cocktail stick,drinking straw or cotton bud stick.When col,remove.Voila...you have made tea lights or small candles.( Empty yoghurt pots make good moulds too but top must be wider than base to get candle out)
    Hope this helps

    Light the candle, pour off the melted wax to regain the wick. Burn the rest of the candle.

    If you have more than one of the same scent and color, you could do as above, but get new wicking and refill one of the large jars again.
