Step 1: Materials
Here is what you will need:
1) A candle in the scent and size of YOUR choice. I personally used the really small one in a glass jar.**
2) A candle "hot plate" or similar item. double boiler works too, just make sure you use a cheap pot.
3) an un-used Scentsy or knock-off brand container (all of the containers are the same really).
4) A container big enough to put Wax In.
5) A Bucket or shallow container big enough to put the Scentsy package in
6) Plenty of time.
**NOTE** The cost of the candle obviously depends on the brand you use and the size!!!
Step 2: Preparation PT. 1
First plug in your hot plate and let it warm up. next, take your candle and using a dremel, knife or some other means (i used a dremel but i had no time) scrape out the wax and put it into the container for wax. it is important that you minimize the big chunks of wax, as they will slow down the melting proces of the wax. What you really want is for the wax to be as "powdery" as possible. if you end up with a few big chunks, just pick em out and then get them as small as you can possibly get. when your done with scraping the wax out, put the candle jar on the hot plate. if you left a little residual wax in the jar, thats alright as it will melt and help the melting process and keep the jar from over-heating and breaking.
Step 3: Preparation PT. 2
Whenever that bit of wax is melted, keep putting in more and more wax (little to big) until the jar is as full as you can get it...again, without causing problems for the hot-plate.
This is really a waiting game now.
