Creative Candle Designs Explained

Aug 8, 2008
Candles have long been a favorite of housewives looking to freshen up the scent of their home. They make great gifts or presents, and are always in plentiful demand. Technology is changing the way we think about what a candle should be, however, and some intriguing new ways of enjoying a candle are now present.

When rethinking how we view candles, there are only so many different ways we can reinvent the wheel. The wick itself can be altered to be made of wood instead of cotton. Wood allows for a higher flame, which although it can be dangerous, is quite marvelous to look at. Wood also gives off a unique scent that cotton couldn't hope to compare to.

Solid wax is also starting to be the outdated way to make up the bulk of a candle. Instead liquids are being used to fill the role of wax, and they are bringing the modern look with them. Clear liquids made of oils and special ingredients can slowly burn the flame that stands on the end of a wick, and won't catch on fire itself. The result: a new-age candle with a very modern look.

A popular trend that many forego is to simply combine old technology and new technology. This can be done by taking the wax candles and have them float on transparent oils. This way we mix new and old technology and get mobile candles, with an equally mobile fire light that the candles give off.

Candles that help the mind and soul seem like a marketing ploy. But in reality, aromatherapy has become a very trusted and tested market. Candles can come scented with certain times of aromatherapy agents that can relax one's senses, and relieve stress. It's great to come home to an aromatherapy candle after a long day at the office!

Of course not every candle has to be bought already made! Candle making kits are wonderful for young kids to learn how to make candles and have fun in the process. Candle making kits are generally inexpensive, and can even be used to teach one the intricacies of the candle business, and perhaps start a very prominent future in making new and exciting candles of all flavors and scents. Even if just for fun, one can help teach themselves or younger kids responsibility and skill all at the same time.

Closing Comments

The proper candles isn't going to be just cosmetic- it can even help the quality of life through aromatherapy. Consult online resources and local retailers for more information on how a simple candle can improve one's health, make their home look great, and give visitors a great impression at house parties and dinners.
