Reusing and repurposing your Candle Jars

Reusing and repurposing your Candle Jars - Natura Soylights

It's a sad day when your Natura candle has come to an end. Though they were not intended to last forever no matter how slow the burn is....we have a few creative ways to reuse your Natura Jars

Staying true to our brand values, we've designed the vessels of our candles to be repurposed, so you can keep the memories of your favorite candle alive.

When your candle burns down, you can keep the container to repurpose or upcycle. This is great for the environment and can be a fun activity to do while waiting for a new candle to arrive at your door!


5 Creative Ways to Reuse Your Natura Candle Jars

Candles are a great way to create a cozy atmosphere in your home, but what do you do with the jar once the candle is done? Instead of throwing it away, why not give it a second life with these creative ideas?


  1. Plant a succulent. The small size of the candle jars makes them the perfect size for a miniature succulent garden. Simply clean out the jar and add a layer of gravel or rocks at the bottom for drainage. Then add potting soil and your succulent of choice.

  2. Make a terrarium. Similar to the succulent idea, a candle jar can be turned into a tiny terrarium. Add a layer of sand or moss at the bottom and then add small plants, pebbles, and even miniature figures for a unique and charming display.

  3. Use it as a vase. Candle jars have a unique and attractive shape that makes them perfect for holding flowers. Simply clean out the jar and add water to use it as a vase. Our favorite to use is the Pillar Jar

4. Add to your drinking glass collection. Most drinking glasses break or get chipped over time, why buy new when you can add in your tumbler jar when finished?.
Tumbler jars are actually high quality glasses used for serving whiskey. While you might not be pounding back the whiskey, the glasses are a solid choice for adding most refreshing beverages to.

5. Use it as a storage container. The candle jars can be used to store small items such as buttons, beads, or even spices in the kitchen. Clean out the jar and then use it to store items that you want to keep organized and easily accessible. Add a Bamboo Lid for complete storage!

Try a Marketplace Jar for easy storage as well. We use ours for a multitude of things- morning smoothies on the go, DIY salad dressings even delicious Chocolate Chia Pudding!

Reusing your Natura candle jars is a great way to reduce waste and add a touch of personality to your home decor. These five ideas are just the beginning of what you can do with your empty candle jars. Be creative and come up with your own ways to give your Natura candle jars a second life.
