Question for Candle Experts

Kindred Kindred
I have recently discovered the joy of massage candles. I got an Afterglow for my wife and we have been enjoying it very much. So much so that I plan on trying several more of the scents. However, I feel like buying a candle with the ceramic container each time seems rather wasteful and not very environmentally friendly. Does anyone know of any company that offers refillable type candles that can be used for massage or any other alternative? Thanks.

I have enjoyed using one with my gf too. But we only have one I think so we aren't experts. I have never heard of refillable ones though.

That would be brilliant, but alas I don't know any.

You know, you could probably find materials to make beeswax candles at a hobby/craft store and refill them yourself. That way, you can save money on them and reduce waste, not to mention have your own custom scents!

Hmm, I'm not sure I'm that crafty. What would you use to scent them? Or are their specific scents for candle making that are available?

You can get scented oils that you mix into the wax.

Here's a couple of general how tos:

Thanks. I'll save those links for future reference, but I guess for now I'll have to stick to buying candles.

It's actually really easy to do. My dad used to do it for a little while.
