Devotional candles are the candles you typically see in a church. The parish allows you to burn a candle in the church for a small fee, which goes towards helping with the maintenance of the church as well as supporting your community. In return, the community supports you with a memento of your loved one or prayer. A great way to share your faith. These devotional candles can also be brought home. Now days there are many different types of devotional candles.
1. 5 Day Devotional candles are made of glass and have a cross decoration, the top is shaped like a chimney for proper and clean burning. They burn for approximately 5 days, depending on the amount of oxygen is fed to the flame. They are our most popular seller.
2. Plastic refills are another popular economical option. If this is the route you prefer, you will need to buy the glass globe first to be able to slide in the refill. The refills come in paraffin wax and now in a renewable resource, vegetable wax.
3. Lumens are smaller and have a smaller wick so they burn slowly. The candle has a straight top and a cross decoration.
4. Carmel lights are a 3 day burning candle. It is made out of glass and looks the size of a drinking glass once finished with the candle. These also come with a 3 day refill.
5. Votive candles are another devotional that you can burn either at home or in the church. They are smaller and last for a few hours. We carry the 4, 6, 8, 10 or 15 hour votive candles.
