Most Popular Types of Candles And What They Are Used For

Art and Culture,Home Improvement,Small Business
Human beings have been using candles since last five thousand years. For the most part of our history, we have used them for lighting up our surroundings. However, the invention of light bulbs changed the role of candles in our lives. Instead of using them as functional devices, we began to use them as decorative items. The earliest candles were made from paraffin and wax. Today, there are numerous different types of candles in the market. These different varieties vary in color, size, shape, material, design and source of energy.

Spas, theme restaurants, and places of worship use this ancient sources of light to create an amazing ambience. Homeowners also use them to decorate different parts of the house. Needless to say, the same type of candle would not suit all different locations or situations. The type of candle you need will be determined by what you are going to use it for. Let's take a look at the most popular varieties and see how they are used in the modern world.

Wax Candles: This is the general variety that all of us are familiar with. This is the type that is used in small places of worship. It is made from paraffin and gives a moderately bright light. You can get this one in several colors, shapes, sizes, burn times and scents. It is perfect for a candlelight dinner, it can bring life to your spa, and it is a great help in cases of electricity failure! However, this may not be your type if you are allergic to fumes.

Tea Light Candles: Wax or gel is poured in a little container, made from plastic or tin, to create the tea light variety. The wax melts inside the container when you light it, and it can be used again and again. This is not best choice for people who want a lot of illumination, but if you are looking for cute little flames that can be used over and over again, this one is for you. Floating tea lights can transform the look of your swimming pool in a jiffy.

Over-sized Pillar Candles: As the name suggests, this type of candle is huge and solid. If you are looking for a solid base and a lot of light, this is what you must go for. Not only is it perfect for homes with children running around, but it is also perfect as a visually attractive decoration for your room. Using these, you can also create powerful pillar arrangements outside the house on the porch, patio or backyard.

Flameless LED Candles: If you are allergic to the smell of burning wax, or if you do not like the idea of an open flame around your kids, you can go for the flameless variety. Technically, this cannot be called a candle as it is actually a light masquerading as a candle, but it can still be used to create a fantastic ambience for your home. If you need lights for meditation, want to read in that soft glow, or want to create a romantic environment at the flick of a switch this one is made for you.
