    Hi there! I didn't make this candle. Kinda googled and joined this forum out of desperation. The base of my candle has broken off inside the jar and I haven't even begun to use it! Does anyone know why and how I can fix it?

    Thank you!

    Why - it cooled WAY too quickly and separated.
    How to fix - do a slow warm and melt the entire candle then cool it slowly until hardened and cured, then use as normal.
