Diptyque Scented Candles & Candle Jars - Bloomingdale's

Transform Your
Candle Jars

After burning your fave candle close to the bottom, let the jar cool and gently scrape out the remaining wax with a spoon. Then, fill the jar with hot water, soak for a minute and wipe away any excess wax with a paper towel. You’re left with a luxe glass jar to use as a makeup brush holder, small bud vase or cotton swab container.
