How to Choose Different Types of Candles

Posted by Celtic Candles on February 24th, 2020

This is something we all enjoy producing a great indoor ambiance. Candles holders the power to add a different vibe to a spot, whether it illuminates the lighting room or just somewhere around the building. This creates a comfortable atmosphere, which elevates the room's overall look. And if you thought it was a simple cakewalk to pick up candles, then we're sorry to break the facts. Candles have a lot more options to offer.

They represent light in the next world when they are lit during death, and Christ is looked upon as the light. Some candles have an artificial fragrance added just for pleasure. Here are a few of the features of a good candle. You can choose from various bespoke candles for different occasions.

Taper candles

Taper candles are known to last 10 hours or so. They can not stand on their own, though. Make sure they have the support. They come in numerous colors and are very thin, and are therefore called taper candles. The ones you see on a candle-light dinner are the tall, delicate and slender taper candles. The paraffin and beeswax are used for producing a dipped taper. They are generally 18 inches long, with 1 inch thick.

Votive candles

Votive candles are thin, with a diameter of 2 inches and around 2.5 inches high. Before you can light them, they'll need a holder, so make sure you've got a small glass holder or multi-candle stand. They are also offering wall sconces. Most of them are used as a prayer to the Lord in the churches. These come in a variety of colors and are either made of paraffin, soy wax or beeswax. They burn for six to seven hours. 

Tea candles

Tea candles have a compact size and are lightweight. They're burning for around 2 hours, so you can place them around your house for a party effect. Their names are derived from their use of hot teapots and also as food warmers. Also, they are best suited to accent lighting. They are about 38 mm in size and usually come in white and a lot of colors at times. They're made from soy wax or palm wax. Tealight candles are sometimes used in restaurants and churches.

Container candles

Box candles are a non-flammable box filled with wax and come with a wick in it. They're not dripping, and they come in different sizes, shapes, and colors. We are made with wax of soy or paraffin. Depending on their thickness, they burn for about 4–5 hours. Use containers that will not break that will stand the heat, and that will not break or crack. If you are interested in making candles, the making of container candles might be a good start for you. They may be used at home or in restaurants as decorative candles.
