These cement candle vessels are designed to be reused post burn. Each one is hand made and sealed at our farm with eco friendly water based sealant. Due to the nature of the cement, it is natural to see the oils soaking into the vessel while burning.
To clean post burn: Remove residual wax and wick by soaking in hot soapy water.
To use as a planter: Simply place a handful of rocks in the bottom of your clean vessel for drainage and add a small plant or succulent.
Tip: Start each burn by trimming wick to 1/4" and making sure the wax is free of dust and debris. Every burn should last until the wax has pooled to the edge of the vessel. Doing so extends the life of your candle and promotes even melting.
