The Most Excited I've Ever Been About Candles

You know me - when I get excited about something I go all in. And when that exciting something ends up being 1) Good for the environment, 2) Cost effective, and 3) Creative and beautiful, I get even more amped up! That's exactly what happened when EJ of Untamed Supply and I met to chat about the new candle refill program they're launching at Fetch in Kansas City's West Bottoms.

Thanks to Untamed Supply for sponsoring this post but, please note, all the opinions expressed are my own. This post does also contain affiliate links which means I make a small commission on some of the products linked.

Come by Fetch THIS Saturday, February 1 between 12 - 4 pm and BYOV (Bring Your Own Vessel) to turn into a candle! EJ of Untamed Supply will be there filling 4 super wonderful scents live:

This vibrant and uniquely scented candle gets its name from Moab, Utah the gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. An infusion of crisp citrus, floral, and woody musk lend their beauty to this wild scent as it invites you to savor the monumental grandeur of these two unique parks.

Enjoying fresh fir during the holidays is a rare experience. You'll be thrown back into vivid memories of the holidays with its crisp, clean, and calming scent.

This harmonious scent blends sweet, earthy, and lush profiles into a fragrance that is as delicious as the first sun ripened pear of the season.

This woodsy, gorgeously scented candle is inspired by aspen leaves shimmering in the cool Rocky Mountain breeze. This rustic blend of black pepper, jasmine, and cardamom peacefully invites you to get lost and enjoy the tranquility of an Aspen grove.

Like I mentioned, the event (and the drop-off/refill program that will continue through Fetch) is a BYOV (Bring Your Own Vessel) format which basically means if it's NOT plastic and could hold wax and a wick, baby you've got a candle goin' (please see below for the obscure Arrested Development reference). Sometimes it can be hard to find a candle that you both love scent-wise and looks-wise. With this program you get exactly what you want in exactly what you want AND in a more environmentally conscious way, win-win-win (obscure Office reference)!

You'll also be able to drop off your vessel and have it filled with any scent from Untamed Supply's library both during the event and anytime after - click here to check them all out!

Pricing is as follows:
Up to 8 oz, $15
9 to 12 oz, $20
13+ oz, $1.75/oz

I had entirely too much fun brainstorming vessels to take with me on Saturday and may have gone overboard a bit (shocker, I know). Start at home - you'll be surprised by how many options you'll have! At my house I found a cute little silver lidded bowl, a cut glass candy dish, a ceramic trinket holder, a copper Moscow mule mug, and a cut glass candle holder all of which would be perfect for candles! Some other ideas include planters, mason jars, old tins, coffee mugs, and canisters.

If you've already shopped your house and haven't found the right thing, gift shops (a.k.a. Fetch), thrift stores and antique stores will become your new best friends for this project. Fetch will have a selection of upcycled vessels available at the event for purchase and the West Bottoms is a great place to hunt for your perfect candle container. When you shop at thrift stores and antique shops you'll be sure to find lots of super cute (and super inexpensive) mugs, cut glass bowls, candy jars, teacups, silver bowls, and other trinkets that are just begging to be made into something useful!


Don't have time to go on a vessel hunt? Don't worry! I rounded up some great options available at Target, Amazon, and IKEA too. They're beautiful, accessible, and pretty dang affordable too!
