How to reuse and refill
Personalized candle in minutes
With Candelize it takes only minutes, or four simple steps, to make the scented candle you want in the candle holder you like. So take an extra minute to carefully read through the instructions below and on the back of the bag before using. That way you are sure to have a great experience together with Candelize.
Create your personal candle
- Open the bag and remove the accompanying wicks
- Place the bag in the microwave oven (MAX 650W) for 2 - 3 mins, or in a pan of boiling water for 5 mins, or until the wax is fully melted. Every microwave is different, so the time it takes to melt the wax may be longer or shorter than the approximate time shown on the pack. First time, please carefully supervise the melting according to the instructions above or on the back of the bag. Candelize wax has a low melting point, so be careful not to overheat. Overheating will make the bag extremely hot and may affect the quality of your candle.
- Remove the sticker on the bottom of the wick and place the wick in the centre of your candle holder, using the wick holder to keep it in place. One wick is perfect for a holder 8 cm wide. If the holder is bigger, use two evenly spaced wicks.
- Pour the melted wax slowly into your candle holder. Let your candle set for at least two hours before lighting it. The bag may be very hot when you remove it from the microwave or water. Place your hands under the bag, then pour the melted wax slowly from the side into your heat and fire resistant holder.

Candelize wax has a very low melting point, so be careful not to overheat. Overheating will make the bag extremely hot and may affect the quality of your candle. Reduce the setting of your microwave to lower the risk of overheating. 650W is the maximum power level. Every microwave is different, so the time it takes to melt the wax may be longer or shorter than the approximate time shown on the bag.
First time in the wicrowave
The first time you use Candelize, take out the bag after around 45 seconds to check whether the wax has melted. Repeat this check every 45 seconds until the wax is fully melted.
If you do not use all the wax in the bag and reheat it later, please note the melting time will be shorter than for a full bag. You can also melt the wax by putting the bag in a pan of boiling water for five minutes, or until the wax is fully melted.
Choosing your candle holder
Make sure the holder you choose is heat and fire resistant. A holder that has previously held a scented candle is ideal. Before your start refilling your candle, make sure it is properly cleaned.
