How to make best use of Pillar Candles
Pillar Candles have long been an indispensable element in many forms of interior design, from formal dining rooms and libraries to home altars and meditation areas. They are most often used as centerpieces, though some of the more whimsical designs can also be used outdoors. There are several ways in which you can use pillar Candles in your interior design, but before you get started, it is best to take a look at some suggestions. Here are a few suggestions that may not work for you:
A great way to use pillar Candles is to have them in your room as table lamps. This is because pillar Candles, unlike many standard Candles, have wicks that do not have to be burned. You can simply use a single wick to burn a center stake to the bottom of the Candle, while also adding a length of pillar Candles to the top of the Candle. Since pillar Candles do not have to burn, they will burn more evenly, last longer, and give off a better flame color. In general, this method can save you approximately five percent on your energy bill when compared to traditional Candles.
Another suggestion is to melt your pillar Candles down into a double boiler. This may not sound very practical, but if you are new to wholesale candles making, you should know that double boilers are considered to be the more desirable equipment for Candle making than ordinary microwaves, stovetops, and toasters. Simply pour your melted wax into a double boiler, add a few drops of oil, and then place your wick in a funnel and pour hot wax into the bottom of the pan. Once your wax has melted, leave it alone to heat up to double boiler temperature. Do not open the valve of the double boiler until the wax is fully melted.
The reason that this method is considered to be a wiser option is because it eliminates the possibility of tunneling through the melted wax. If you use regular old pans with waxes placed inside them, you run the risk of melting the waxes or even the sides of your pan. If the pan gets hot enough from wax heating up, it could collapse, resulting in wasted Candle wax and a wasted heat source. Tunneling is very common in pillar Candles, and you will want to avoid it by never placing hot objects into your funnel.
Double boilers are known to produce more stable heat than microwaves or stoves, so if you place your pillar Candles in a double boiler, you will probably have a better burn time than if you used a stovetop. It is important to note that some manufacturers do recommend that pillar Candles are placed in microwaves or stoves, but these manufacturers are not necessarily stating that this is a must. If you have never made pillar Candles before, then I would highly suggest taking the advice of a professional. They should know exactly which tools you need to have in order to make the Candles burn consistently and cleanly.
