My passion to create and preserve the environment is what initially drew me to start this business. All Recycled by Robin candles are made from either a reused bottle or container. My mission is to take something that would normally be tossed in the trash and turn it into something beautiful.
I use a blade to etch a score around the bottle. Then I pour boiling hot water directly onto the score followed by cold water. The thermal shock causes the bottle to separate (hopefully following the even line of the score).
To make the candle I melt down soy wax chips in a double boiler. Once the wax has fully melted I add fragrance oil, and then hand-pour into the recycled containers. All done from my kitchen :) Find videos on my Instagram page.
