Just 1 litre of oil left from making French fries and flushed down the drain or toilet can contaminate as much as 1000 litres of water.
THOUGHTLESSLY DISCARDED WASTE COOKING OIL IS A MAJOR THREAT TO OUR ENVIRONMENT. WHY NOT RECYCLE IT INTO SOMETHING FRAGRANT INSTEAD AND SAVE SOME MONEY ALONG THE WAY?
Scented candles made from wax consisting of recycled waste oil are the solution to several environmental and social problems. And if you decide to make the candle yourself, you will also have fun choosing and mixing colours.
Problems to be solved by the OILRIGHT idea
Waste cooking oil
Every drop of oil disposed of in the sewer system can not only clog the pipes and drain your wallet, but also severely contaminate surface water and groundwater. On the water surface, oil forms an impermeable layer preventing the flow of oxygen, which flora and fauna desperately need.
Ordinary paraffin candles
Scented candles that are commonly found on store shelves harm both the environment and your health. Paraffin is a non-renewable resource, as it is obtained from lignite and petroleum products. During combustion, it releases a variety of toxins, and in the event of ingestion it can cause severe lung damage.
Candles made from vegetable waxes
Made from fresh raw materials such as soy and palm wax, vegetable waxes interfere with the food chain while their transportation from distant places unnecessarily pollutes the environment even further. Palm wax greatly contributes to the excessive exploitation and the destruction of tropical forests.
THE OILRIGHT CONCEPT COMBINES THREE INNOVATIVE TYPES OF PRODUCTS, WITH WHICH YOU HELP PRESERVE THE ENVIRONMENT, HAVE FUN AND INDULGE YOUR CREATIVITY.
Beautiful candles with eight various scents are made from carefully selected, purified and treated waste oil. They contain top-quality, completely non-toxic laboratory-produced scents, which replace non-organic essential oils. Our candles are completely CO2-neutral and free of dyes, and they burn for as much as 25% longer, and at a lower temperature than paraffin candles. They are made by hand by people with long-term mental health problems, which means that your purchase helps them too.

SAFETY OF OILRIGHT PRODUCTS
All OILRIGHT products are made using the tested and registered Oil2Wax technology.
Wax from waste cooking oil has been certified as harmless by independent laboratories.
BY USING OILRIGHT PRODUCTS PROPERLY, YOU WILL MAKE YOUR SCENTED CANDLE EVEN FRIENDLIER TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR HEALTH, AND YOUR EXPERIENCE EVEN BETTER.
When lighting the candle for the first time, let it burn until the entire top layer of wax has liquefied.
Always place the burning candle on the supplied cover, as this will prevent any damage to the furniture.
Use the supplied cover to extinguish the candle. Once the flame has extinguished completely, remove the cap to let the candle get some air.
Do not leave candles burning for more than 3 hours at a time. After you have extinguished the candle, let the wax cool back to room temperature before lighting the candle again.
Before lighting the candle, be sure to shorten the wick to approximately 0.5 cm using scissors. You can also trim the wick while the candle is burning if you believe that the flame is too high.
Before use, always purify waste cooking oil using a coffee filter or a towel. Avoid the use of burnt oil.
If the powder for making OILRIGHT wax does not melt in the hot oil, simply heat the mixture a while longer. The mixture must be homogeneous and without lumps.
When making a candle, use any non-flammable container. Its diameter should be between 4.5 and 5.5 centimetres. You can use the same container more than once.
Let the candle rest for at least 24 hours before using it for the first time. The smell and colour of waste oil you use affect the final quality of the wax.
