We’ve all asked ourselves, why can’t I make a candle out of candle that’s just melted.  Ok maybe you haven’t, but we’ve asked ourselves that.

We’ve often looked at a melting candle and poetically wondered how the wax gives sacrifices itself to give us light and then vanishes, ahem, in a not so poetic sense, into waste.

Well, Benjamin Shine, an artist and creator who loves to look at things differently and practically, saw that same candle and went,

“Hey, why can’t that melting wax find its rebirth in yet another candle!”.  

And thankfully he has the same warped mind that we do and so Shine created a design that does exactly that – the Rekindle Candle.

At first glance, the Rekindle Candle looks like just another candlestick holder, and a pretty cool-looking one at that, but the true magic begins when you light up that candle and the wax begins melting.

Now, while any other candle would melt away into blobs of wax, this specially designed holder from Shine allows the wax to melt into the container that forms the holder, thus allowing the melted wax to form yet another candle!

We can now sleep more peacefully knowing this!  Hope you can too.
