Alixx also practices sustainability. They offer candles that lived well after they fully burned. Once your candle is fully burned you can follow these three steps.

  1. Once your candle if fully burned, place the glass in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
  2. Use a butter knife or spoon to remove remaining wax. It should be coming out fairly easily. If not, wait for the glass to cool down and place under hot water. Then try again.
  3. Wash your glass with hot water, by hand or in the dishwasher. Please note, the vessels are food safe once they are clean.

Once these steps are complete you can reuse the containers for any of these purposes: flower vase, coffee mug, makeup container and more.

It is recommended that the Alixx candle is burned for approximately 3-4 hours at time. Before extinguishing, allow the liquid pool of wax to reach the edges of the vessel. This will help your candle burn evenly every time. Also before lighting your Alixx candle, trim the wick(s) to 1/4-inch. This will avoid unpleasant black smoke and marks around the edges of your vessel.

Gift yourself or a loved one with one of these lovely candles today!
