Creative Candleholder Turns Melted Wax into New Candle

Rekindle Candle is an ingenious product developed by designer Benjamin Shine that doubles as a candlestick holder and maker. The simple design, which greatly increases the reusability of the candle, works as both a pedestal for the illuminating stick and a sort of basin to collect the liquefied wax, storing the melted remnants in its clear center.

Once the candle has dissolved and the wick has been burnt as far as it can visibly go, the transparent tube can be disassembled to reveal a brand new candlestick. This process can be repeated over and over again, making good use of the wax. The only item that needs to be replenished is the wick, which would need to hang down the center of the sheer stem, allowing the trickling, melted wax to mold around it.
