Hints From Hertha: Dripping Candles

Chances are you've had a taper or fifty drip and make a nasty mess on an altar cloth, a table, or the carpet.  Maybe even on the cat.

Putting the tapers in the freezer for a few hours before you use them helps to cut down on the amount of drippings and makes for a cleaner burn.

If you divine the outcome of a working by reading the wax drippings...ignore everything I just said!


  1. Putting things in the freezer solves almost everything.

    That's why I call it the Scary Magic Box of Cold.

  2. Great for bindings...and it keeps my Gin cold!

  3. This is great! I don't know how many times I've had to get wax out of carpet. Ew.

  4. The freezer also helps if you've got some melted wax stuck inside a candle holder. It shrinks and pops right out.

    Never thought to chill the candles beforehand, though. Great tip!
