About Candles

If you are new to the scene of luxury candles, you will be amazed to find out that there are so many different types and varieties of them. With so many brands competing for supremacy, the market for candles is rather crowded than one would expect. 

If you thought that candles are a thing of antiquity, you could not be more wrong. The reality is quite the opposite. Even though people no longer use candles for lighting, there is still a huge demand for luxury and scented candles. This is good news for candle lovers as it means there is no shortage of choices when it comes to selecting a candle for home decor. But before you start shopping for them, read this article to know more. Having a better understanding of candles will help you make informed decisions when you shop. 

A beginner’s guide to buying candles 

These days, almost nobody uses candles to light up their home. But still, a lot of people do buy candles. People want candles for a variety of reasons. Some like the beautiful faint yellow glow that it makes. For others, it is about the fragrance of the scented candles. A few tea candles on the dining table can change the mood of the room to a romantic one. The candle you choose should serve you whatever purpose you want it to serve. For that, you should know about the types of candles out there.

Decorative candles 

These candles can change the aesthetic of a room completely. There are also so many ways that you can use them. One way is to fix the candles on an elaborate candelabra and place it in the middle of your dining table. Light it up when you serve food to your special guests. However, even while you don't light them, they will look good. Small candles can add a bit of a unique accent to your coffee tables and bookshelves. You can customise the look by arranging different types of candles or by using candles of different heights. According to the height and width of the candles, there are pillar, taper, and votive designs of candles.  

Scented candles 

Sometimes you want more than just looks with the candle. In that case, you can add a bit of a fragrance too. When the element of beauty and smell combine, it will elevate your mood and transform the feel of your room. The scent from candles is unique due to their warmth with a tinge of smoky flavour. This type of candles is perfect as a table decoration for a romantic dinner. Certain smells can bring back sweet memories. In short, scented candles can provide you with a multi-sensory experience. Luckily, scented candles offer a wide variety of fragrances consisting of various notes. 

Types of waxes 

Although all candles might appear the same at first glance, the wax that they use is quite different. The most common type of wax is paraffin wax. These are primarily used in cheap candles, and they are easy to dye. The problem with paraffin wax candles is that they produce a significant amount of soot. Soy wax candles are made from the extract of soybean oil. They are natural and therefore are safe to use. Decorative candles rarely use any of these two waxes. Instead, they use beeswax for its superior fragrance and unique warm glow. Most beeswax candles do not use artificial dyes as the wax itself has a pleasing colour to it.  

Types of wicks 

A candle might have colour, smell or any other useful features. But what makes it a candle is the fact that it can burn. In order for it to burn, there should be a wick that can absorb the wax and burn for a long time without charring. Wicks can do more than what you might think to the appearance of the candle as well. It is the wick that controls the glow and size of the flame. There are also multi-wick designs if you want your scented candle to give out more intense fragrance. On the other hand, if you want the candle to have a really long burn time, you should look for a good quality wick made of cotton or linen.

Tips on buying the right type of candles for your home decor

Most people do not put much thought into selecting candles. After all, they are just candles, right? Well, if you want to achieve the right purpose with the candles that you are buying, then you rather choose wisely. The good news is, selecting a good candle is not that difficult. All you have to do is to look for a couple of different factors that make up a good candle. Here are some tips that you can follow when you shop for candles. 
  • Choose the type of wax- There are a couple of things to consider before you choose the type of wax for the candle. The first thing is whether or not you are ready to spend on better candles. Soy wax candles and paraffin candles do not look that much different except for the fact that soy wax candles burn clean. Soy wax candles are more affordable than beeswax. 
  • Type of wick- Braided cotton wicks is the highest quality wicks that any candle can have. Although the wicks that have a wire passing through it might look better, pure cotton wicks will burn evenly and provide longer burn time. Cotton wicks do not smoke as much either. 
  • Jar vs no-jar- If you are buying decorative candles, you have to choose between candles that come in jars vs the ones that do not have a jar. Jars are useful if you want to move the candles easily from place to place without having to worry about the wax dripping down. However, you need candles without the jar if you are going to fix it on a candle holder. 
  • Selecting the colour- Colours are an inherent part of decorative candles. It is the colour of the candle, along with the glow of the flame that completes the appearance of the candle. That being said, it is better to avoid candles with dark pigments. Dark pigments can clog up the wick and make it harder for the candle to burn. 
One thing that nobody likes about candles is drips. Drips are messy and tough to clean up. But don't decide against buying a candle just because of that. If drips are a big problem for you, then try beeswax candles. They are natural and do not drip like other wax candles. Apart from these, don't forget to check out other products from Home & Living.

Question & Answer

Are candles bad for you? 

Some people claim that candles emit harmful substances when they burn. In order to put this claim to the test, you should understand how a candle works. In a candle, it is the wax that does most of the burning. Wick, on the other hand, just disintegrated due to the heat. So, if any harmful fumes come from candles, it should come from the wax. Among the three types of waxes that are used in candles, beeswax and soy wax are completely safe. Then there are the paraffin wax candles. In fact, there is one study that suggests that paraffin candles emit toluene when they burn. But others claim that this study itself is questionable.  

Are candles bad for the environment? 

It is true that carbon dioxide is a byproduct of the burning of a wax candle. It is also true that burning candles cause unburnt carbon to mix into the air. But do they do any significant damage to the environment? Well, not many people light candles on a daily basis in the first place. Not only that, but most people on the planet would also hardly ever light even one candle. This is to show how insignificant is the amount of carbon dioxide that comes out of a few candles that you might be lighting for a special occasion. It will be way less than the amount of carbon you will burn if you idle your car engine for one minute. 

What are dripless candles? 

Dripless candles make use of wax that has a higher melting point than regular paraffin wax to eliminate the drips. The reason why paraffin candles drip is that the heat from the flame causes the edges of the candle to melt. This causes the liquid wax to roll down the edges of the candle and to solidify. This leaves a considerable amount of unburnt wax at the bottom of the candle. This also happens with soy wax candles to a lesser extent. Beeswax candles, on the other hand, do not drip like that. Beeswax has a higher melting point than paraffin and soy wax.
