Diwali is all about bright lights - be it diyas, fairy lights or candles. Candles create the perfect indoor ambiance and light up the house with festive cheer. They make the home feel relaxing and inviting. But if you thought shopping for candles is a cakewalk, think again! We have found out there are several types of candles that differ on the basis of shape, sizes, scents and waxes. Here’s a simple guide on the different kinds of candles available in the market. So, which kind of candle should you use to light up your home this Diwali? Well, that’s up to you!

 

Flameless candles

Flameless candles are the best options for those who have pets or young kids at home. Unlike traditional candles, flameless candles don’t give off any heat or smoke. These candles are powered by batteries and the flame mimics that of a traditional candle. You don’t have to worry about sudden fires or accidents with these candles!

 

Tea light candles

Small and lightweight by design, tea light candles are great for decorating the home. You can use them in the dining space and make it an intimate setting for your guests. You can also place these candles on the porch or verandah for a subtle, inviting glow. Tea light candles burn for almost two hours, which is perfect for a Diwali dinner!

 

Candle Pot

A candle pot is a candle that comes in a decorative pot, jar or glass. This eliminates the need for a candleholder and the pot itself also doubles up as a decorative piece. Scented candle pots is a great way to make your home smell beautiful and looking appealing!

 

Taper candles

Taper candles are a classic. They are perfect for adding some character to your living space. Taper candles burn for as long as 10 hours, which is a great value for money. Taper candles look extra fancy in a candelabra! 

 

Pillar candles

Pillar candles are thick candles which are long-burning and smokeless. They last forever and a large pillar candle can look really nice in any corner of the house. Just make sure that the candle is resting on a flat, heat-resistant surface!
