Soy candles are considered superior because they are more clean burning than wax normally used in candles. If you burn a lot of candles it is recommended that you use soy or bees wax candles.
Votive candles are the customary prayer candle, but they can be used for any purpose. Some of the votives come in a container and some do not. For a votive candle to use its entire burntime you should make sure it is contained so that the wax does not run away. We offer a wide variety of Candle Holders for this purpose.
