    I have one of the Parafin Therapy things, I absolutely love it! I just changed the wax. I saved the old used wax and it has hardened wondering if I can recycle it for anything as opposed to just throwing it out. It seems fairly clean.

    Put some pine shavings in a muffin cup and pour the melted paraffin over it to make firestarters. [​IMG]

    I dunno with it being scented....maybe someone else might have a clue. I'd say candles, but not sure if parafin would work.

    Good Idea! We don't have a fire place, but I know some people that do, maybe they can use them at least it won't go to waste. Trying to be a little "greener" this year and recycle as much as I can.

    Yes, but don't take them camping and leave them in the truck on a hot summer day. [​IMG]

    Just sayin'
