We select vessels for our candles that are not just appealing to burn, but also can be useful after the candle is burned out and reducing waste. We call this AFTERBURN.

Often made of premium glass or ceramic, the majority of our candles are intended for AFTERBURN. When your candle is finished burning, simply pop the vessel in the freezer overnight...then run it under hot water to release the remaining wax. After removing the wax and wick tab (if still attached), clean the vessel throughly with hot, soapy water. Voila! You've got yourself a jar to use for another purpose.Office: Pen/Pencil Holder

This concept was what inspired us to create our Quench Series. Each candle in that collection is poured by hand into a keepsake glass, featuring our signature Frenchie icon, that's intended to be reused AFTERBURN as a drinking glass to enjoy daily...even fill with your favorite cocktails. We even include a few cocktail recipes to try in the candle box. 

We invite you to share pictures with us on Instagram showing your AFTERBURN inspirations. Tag your posts #afterburn #myfrenchpress #candleswithrepurpose
