Happy Earth Day! Today is a reminder of what a beautiful, precious planet we inhabit and an opportunity to incorporate greener practices into our everyday lives. This month’s expert home fragrance tip is ever so appropriate for the occasion plus read on for details about a new contest we’re launching!
Tip #4: Reuse the Vessel
“Modern”... “elegant”... “simple chic.” Yes, our customers rave about our gorgeous packaging but did you know Luxey Maison candle and diffuser vessels were consciously designed to be reused? Or that our packing chips are biodegradable? We’re proud Californians after all, and it’s important for us to do our part to reduce waste. We’ve created some hacks to upcycle your used Luxey Maison vessels and give them new life.
Candles: A candle has reached its max burn time once it has burned down to 1” of wick. Our pure soy wax makes it easy to clean the vessel. Carefully pour hot water into the vessel and let it sit long enough for the wax to soften. Loosen the metal wick holder from the bottom and discard. Pour out the water and scoop out the softened wax. Hand wash the vessel with soap and warm water to remove remaining pieces of wax. Rinse and wipe dry. Your vessel is now ready to reuse.
Diffusers: Our diffuser vessel can similarly be repurposed. Once the diffuser oil has evaporated, dispose of your used diffuser reeds. Pour about one tablespoon of rubbing alcohol into the vessel to rinse out any remnants of oil. Give the vessel a gentle shake side-to-side to clean the interior and then pour out the alcohol. Repeat if the vessel still has oil. Allow the vessel to dry before reuse.
Some customers have used their candle vessels as water tumblers, succulent planters, and makeup brush holders. We’ve even seen the diffuser vessels reused as cute terrariums. What creative way have you reused your vessel? Post your image to Instagram, tag @luxeymaison and use #myluxey.
