You simply can’t beat one of our Signature Candles, and we are certainly guilty of owning far too many. However, with packaging so precious, it seems a real shame to throw them away once they’ve been enjoyed and finished. Give them a new lease of life, while simultaneously adding stylish and practical finishing touches to your surfaces, and doing your bit for the planet, with these handy ways to repurpose yours.

1. Display your blooms
One of the easiest (and most beautiful) ways to reuse a candle vessel is to turn it into a vase. Wild flowers are perfect for this, as the vessels are too small to support larger shop-bought blooms. What’s more, it’s a budget-friendly option, too, looking stunning at no extra cost. Choose a selection of in-season sprigs and bring the outside in.
2. Turn into bathroom tidies
Create a ‘shelfie’ to be proud of by gathering one or more empty jars and filling them with beauty-regime essentials. Our smaller candles are the ideal size for cotton buds, or cosmetic pads, while our larger jars are excellent for housing brushes. Guilty of sometimes going to sleep with your make-up on? Keep one filled with cotton pads on the bedside table, next to a bottle of micellar water, or make-up remover, to make it easier to cleanse before bed, even on super-late nights.
3. Create a candle-care kit
If you’re a candle aficionado, you’ll likely already have plenty of accessories to feed your fragrance habit. Keep your matches, wick trimmer and other goodies safely stowed near your favourite Signature scent. For extra brownie points, why not cut the striking patch from the side of a box of matches and add to the back of the vessel – so you can keep the matches stylishly stored away and strike them without needing to keep hold of the box.
