Fun Find– I like when I find out about a new product that makes use of something in my home I would normally throw away. The new to the US, candle-making kit by Eco-Artware does exactly that. It takes something like used cooking oil and gives it new purposes, besides sitting like a rock in my freezer.
Using a patented powder that transforms the vegetable oil into an irreversible candle wax Eco-Artware is calling it the “greatest candle”. The “greatest candle” also manages to neutralize odors and a 4 ounce canister of powder can create up to 6, 4-ounce candles. Each kit ($35) includes 4 oz of powder and 6 wicks. Strained vegetable oil is necessary as well as a microwave but then you have all you need to make new candles.
I love that you can re-use old candle containers or find new possibilities like shells or other glass, wood or ceramic finds in your home to create something completely new. Makes a great hostess gift or for use in power outages. This eco-conscious project works well with kids and teaching them how to re-use and recycle in a unique way.
