Updated: Jul 7



If you are someone like me that has a deep affinity for candles in your home, then you

also probably have an abundance of candle vessels that don’t have a purpose, yet you feel guilty just throwing them out! DON’T!


Below is a list of all the creative ways you can find use of a candle vessel after it has done its job of making your home or office smell amazing. But before you begin storing household items, follow our easy instructions on how to revive your vessel back to life.
