Possibly one of the fastest growing, in popularity, candles are the beeswax votive candles; and that is for many reasons… but we will just address a few of them. One thing that makes the votive candle on that people love is that they are so easy and simple to make, and no special tools or instructions are needed to make them. Really all that is needed to make them in the comfort of ones own home is a bit of beeswax that can be melted down, a little bit of cotton wick, and a mold to shape the basic votive candle. This means that making these candles can be a great arts and crafts project for students, or could be an excellent idea to keep the minds of children occupied on a rainy day that otherwise would keep everyone in doors and possibly restless.
The practicality of these simple candles is also what draws many people to using them since their design and storage is pretty straight forward. Although these candles do not have any special design nor are they generally large in size, they still provide quite a bit of light to any area, and just like all other beeswax candles… they honey scent they provide is appealing to all. Many times households keep a bunch of these candles stored away in case of an unexpected power outage since they are compact and are able to provide plenty of light in a completely dark room or area. They are also used in romantic environments by providing just enough light while sitting at a table to enjoy a glass or wine or an elegantly planned dinner for a small party or just 2 individuals.
Something that has also added to their popularity in recent years is that they are now produced in literally just about every color imaginable and for that reason they can be easily paired with whatever design a specific room or event area needs to provide a color coordinated look. So these are just a few of the reason that so many people love votive beeswax candles, aside from the fact that they generally burn longer than other candles their size… and they are able to do so without hurting the environment or creating smelly and harmful smoke that no one wants in a candle lit area.
