Pillar Candles

Posted by on Jul 29 2010 | pillar candles

If you want candles that make a statement, consider pillar candles. Pillar candles are  a style of candles which are large and wide. This creates a very long burning time as well as a bold decorative statement. If you want to make a strong statement and want to enjoy scented candles that last for a long time, pillar candles may be your best option.

Pillar candles come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have a long burn time in common. Since the pillar candles use more wax, there is more fuel for a long burn. Most pillar candles are tall and either round or square. They can be used in a variety of ways. For example, you can set one pillar candle in the center of a room or table for a bold look. You can also group several pillar candles of different heights together for a more contemporary look.

If you want scented pillar candles, look for high quality scented candles, such as Archipelago pillar candles. Archipelago pillar candles offer hours of burning time and intoxicating fragrances. These candles come in many fragrances, including the Archipelago Botanicals Ambiant Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Charleston Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Demeter Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Fiji Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Havana Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Lanai Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Luna Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Madagascar Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Mediterranean Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Pacifica Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Paramour Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Savannah Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Stonehenge Pillar Candle, the Archipelago Botanicals Tuscany Pillar Candle, and the Archipelago Botanicals Venus Pillar Candle. Each Archipelago pillar candle is an intoxicating blend of fragrances blended by fragrance masters. Each candle also comes in three pillar sizes. The 2.75×6.5 Pillar candle has an 80 hour burn time, the 3.5×3.5 pillar has a 65 hour burn time, and the 2×3 pillar candle has a 30 hour burn time.

While there are many low-cost scented pillar candles on the market, the problem with these low-quality candles is that the scent of the candle is often not integrated right into the wax. This means that the scent does not last as long as the candle does, which is probably not what you want with scented pillar candles. Splurge on a high-end luxury pillar candle and you’ll get great value. The candle and its wonderful scent will last a long time, allowing you to get lots of value from every drop of wax.

Posted by on Jul 19 2010 | soy candles

For everyday use, it’s hard to beat soy candles. Sox candles are made from a hydrogenated soybean oil, more commonly known as soy wax. In 1992, a man named Michael Richards invented this type of wax while looking for options beyond beeswax. Since then, soy candles have grown rapidly in popularity. Now, there are soy candles available in every style, size, and fragrance. If you want to use candles or scented candles every day, there are lots of reasons why you will want to choose soy candles over paraffin wax candles (traditional candles):

1) Soy candles are less expensive. Soy wax is cost-effective, so you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy the beauty and fragrance of candles every day.

2) Soy candles are kinder to the environment. Most traditional candles are made from petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource and releases CO2 into the atmosphere. Soy candles pollute less and are made from a renewable resource, which is important if you love candles and want to use them regularly.

3) Soy candles have a longer burn time. Good quality soy candles can last up to 50% longer than traditional paraffin wax candles. This means that for every day use, you get more value from soy candles and you will have to change candles less often.

4) Soy candles make clean up easy. If you burn candles every day, spills and accidents are inevitable. The nice thing about soy wax is that it easy to clean, so you don’t have to worry about scrubbing your furniture or rugs like crazy if you do have a little spill.

5) Soy candles come in wonderful scents. There are so many wonderful soy candles to choose from now that it’s ridiculous. A Scent of Scandal Hot Mama Candle, for example, is a gorgeous candle with a wonderful sugar and spice fragrance. The Archipelago Home Currant Candle is one of the most popular scented candles out there, a real hit with celebrities and just about everyone. Whatever mood you want to set, there is a soy candles that can help you create the ambience of your choice.

6) Soy candles are kinder to your indoor air quality. Soot is a natural byproduct of candles, but soy candles cut the soot in your home by 90% when compared to traditional paraffin candles. This is crucial, since soot can coat your walls and can also be very unhealthy to breathe.

7) Scented soy candles disperse scent more effectively. If you want to fill your home with luscious fragrance, soy candles are a great choice. This is because soy wax allows for cooler burning temperatures than paraffin, allowing fragrance to disperse more quickly. As well, since soy wax has a low melting point, soy candles produce a large liquid pool of wax, and is from this liquid that scent is dispersed.
