How is it reusable?

4 of the 5 ingredients of this ible are burned off into the ether, leaving nothing except the empty mason jar which can then be......reused.

Another suggestion...if you pour the candle too hot you will get sinkage in the middle. This is because the wax contracts as it cools and leaves voids. The voids can cause the candle to smoke. A tip is to use a heat gun to melt some of the top layer of wax to melt down and fill the holes. You may need to repeat this process several times.
