The quality and condition of the oil will directly affect the quality, performance, and appearance of the candles. You need to ensure that it is as clean and preserved as possible to the candle have a correct burn and fragrance throw.
To filter your used oils, please follow these steps:

 1  Filter the olive or vegetable oil after use and before storage to remove water and food particles. You can use a coffee filter, a fine-mesh strainer, or even a piece of fabric.
If the oil is hot, let it cool down before filtering for safety reasons.
Tip: Our favorite method is to use a piece of nylon stocking. It’s faster, more effective, and reusable!

 2  Before using the filtered oil to make your candles, let it rest for 24 hours.
