How cool is this candle holder that recycles its own wax by design?
The Rekindle Candle is a patent-pending candle holder that diverts melted candle wax into an area with extra wick, so it can be used again. In a Grist interview with Benjamin Shine, the candlestick's designer, he said:
How long it lasts, Shine says, depends on the specific candle — some burn faster, some are drippier — but you might be able to reuse the wax as many as five times.
That's a lot of recovered wax!
The Rekindle Candle isn't available for sale yet, but keep an eye on Shine's blog to see when it's going to be up for sale. In the meantime, you can recycle your candle wax the old fashioned way, by using it to make new candles. Want to see how? Check out our tutorial for how to recycle old candle wax!
