2 questions about your answer.. have you melted down candle wax this way yourself?... and do I have to add anything.. like water or somthing?


Low heat is the key. Water may cause steam explosions of hot wax.  Never overfill the pan !
IF you get a deep teflon coated pot then the steep sides will help protect you, and will store more wax.

The wax which goes in Scentsy warmers once cooled can be placed in the refrigerator and harden yet again if you wish.  Www.BrendaTschida.Scentsy.US

I love a good natural wax candle. The perfume needs to be injected throughout the candle so there is a scent to the very end. There should be a good quality wick also.
