Melt Candles on a Coffee Cup Warmer

Extend the life of scented candles: Instead of burning them (which uses oxygen, may generate soot, and could be a fire hazard), melt them in a heatproof jar atop an electric coffee cup warmer. The pleasant scent will waft through the air, and the candle will last almost forever.

Please do not do this. The melting point of waxes (including soy waxes) can burst some jars.

Great idea. I burn a lot of scented candles and the coffee cup warmer takes up less space on my counter than my candle warmer.
