As they say, one person’s trash is another’s treasure. In the case of Cathy’s candles, and more specifically, the vessels they’re poured into, it’s discarded wine bottles that are reclaimed and given new purpose. Every bottle is cut, polished and sandblasted to a fine finish before filling with pure beeswax and 100% essential oil. With an inspiring message etched onto each one, the glasses make charming tumblers, pencil holders or vases after the wax has burned down. More than just a candle, it’s a gift that gives back, both to the environment and to different charitable causes—Cathy donates a portion of the proceeds of each to a different organization.
