February 12, 2023

So, you’ve burned through all the wax in your Sunrise. What now? Well, don’t toss it in the trash ! Here’s 4 fun and creative ways to repurpose your concrete bowl:

Plant Pot

Repurpose your Tsehai bowl into a stylish planter? You can plant succulents, herbs, or even small flowers in it. First, make sure you clean out any remaining wax and wick residue from the bowl. Then, add some potting soil and your chosen plant. You can even get creative with the arrangement of plants in the bowl, creating a mini-garden that will look great in your home.

Plus, having plants in your living space can be a great way to improve air quality and reduce stress. So, not only are you repurposing your candle bowl, but you’re also improving your overall well-being. It’s a win-win!


In the spirit of sacred living, we are always thinking about new ways to add more peace and intentionality to your home. One way to do this is by repurposing your Tsehai bowl into your very own altar. Add your favorite crystals, a few candles and maybe even a photo of someone that is no longer here that you wish to keep at the forefront of your mind…the options are endless. You decide what you want to display on your altar, after all..it’s your sacred life. 

Fruit Bowl 

Okay, so this one might sound a bit unconventional, but bear with me. Your concrete bowl can actually make a great fruit bowl! Simply give it a thorough cleaning and fill it with your favorite fruits.

The weight of the concrete will keep the bowl from tipping over, even when it’s filled with heavier fruits like apples or oranges. And let’s be honest, anything looks more appetizing when it’s displayed in a beautiful bowl.

Zen Garden 

Whether you practice mediation or just need to decompress at the end of your day,  creating a mini zen garden is definitely the move! Fill your bowl with sand, rocks, and other decorative elements like small statues or candles, and create your own miniature oasis of calm. The rough texture of the concrete bowl will add an earthy and natural feel to your zen garden, while the small size makes it perfect for any desk or tabletop.

Take a few moments each day to tend to your zen garden, raking the sand and arranging the rocks to create a sense of mindfulness and relaxation. Your mini zen garden will not only be a beautiful decorative piece but will also serve as a daily reminder to take a few moments to breathe, relax and find inner peace. Remember, we’re all about slow, sacred living here at Addis VIV. 🙂 

So there you have it, four fun and creative ways to repurpose your Sunrise bowl. Not only are you keeping it out of the landfill, but you’re also adding a unique touch to your home décor. And who knows, maybe you’ll come up with even more creative ways to use it in the future. The possibilities are endless!
