It is no wonder that candles are so popular. These simple light sources create a romantic setting in seconds. However, candles are also used in aromatherapy, to create a pleasant scent, or just to add a decorative element to a room. Candles can even be used in religious ceremonies and weddings.

One of the most popular types of candles is the pillar candle. These candles are cylinder shaped and are made with wax. They are usually scented. People use these versatile candles to create a relaxing ambience in the bath, a romantic ambience in the bedroom, and a pleasant atmosphere in the dining room. Pillar candles are also frequently personalized to commemorate important events, such as a child’s christening or a wedding.

The taper candle is used to add some soft lighting at the dining room table. These candles are designed to fit easily into traditional candlesticks and burn slowly for several hours. They also are used in standard wall sconces.

Votive candles are small candles, but they are usually grouped together to make a big impact. You can use votive candles in lanterns or decorative candle holders, but you should never burn them without having them contained in some way, since they are short and could burn down quickly before you notice that the flame has almost reached the furniture surface.

Floating candles are the ideal way to create a beautiful centerpiece. Having candles float in water is beautiful, since the flames reflect on the water’s surface, but also is a great way to burn them safely.

Jar candles are scented candles made with high quality paraffin or soy. These candles can really make a room smell wonderful. Soy candles are a bit more costly than paraffin candles, but burn more cleanly.

Finally, since candles have an open flame, they can be dangerous to use. To keep your home safe while you are enjoying your candles, there are a few simple tips you may want to follow.

TODAY'S NEWS:




1. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
2. Always use some sort of candle holder. They will help protect furniture from dripping wax.
3. Consider using a candle shade to reduce soot from candle flames.
4. To enjoy scented candles without worrying about an open flame, try candle warmers. The candle warmer heats an unlit jar candle from beneath to release the scent. When you use a candle warmer, you will also help your candles last much longer than candles that are burned.
