Allow Jar Candles To Melt When Using Oven

In my kitchen one day, I placed a half used scented candle in a jar on my stove for show. It looked beautiful.

That evening when I was making dinner and using the oven, I had forgotten to take the candle from the stove. Oh, the smell was wonderful! The heat vent on my stove melted the candles completely and it was a much stronger smell than if I had lit it. Each time thereafter that I used the oven, I made sure the same candle was on the stove. Now when I buy scented candles, I don't burn them, I just let them melt. Smells so much more and lasts a lot longer than burning.

Yes! They sell candle warmers for this very purpose. They're the only way to go. I think the candle warmers are the same thing as what used to be called a desktop coffee warmer. They've gone down in price, too, and can be had at Bed Bath & Beyond for around $5 or $6.

I do this all the time! Just be careful of the jar as it can get hot. I also put left over candle wax in a cute canning jar and leave it on my stove. You can get wonderful aromas by mixing scents also.
