Candles can also be made from microcrystalline wax , beeswax a byproduct of honey collection , gel a mixture of polymer and mineral oil , [21] or some plant waxes generally palm, carnauba , bayberry , or soybean wax.

The size of the flame and corresponding rate of burning is controlled largely by the candle wick. Production methods utilize extrusion moulding. The liquid is then poured into a mould or a wick is repeatedly immersed in the liquid to create a dipped tapered candle. Often fragrance oils , essential oils or aniline -based dye is added.

A candle wick works by capillary action , drawing "wicking" the melted wax or fuel up to the flame. When the liquid fuel reaches the flame, it vaporizes and combusts. The candle wick influences how the candle burns. Important characteristics of the wick include diameter, stiffness, fire-resistance , and tethering. A candle wick is a piece of string or cord that holds the flame of a candle.

Commercial wicks are made from braided cotton. The wick's capillarity determines the rate at which the melted hydrocarbon is conveyed to the flame. If the capillarity is too great, the molten wax streams down the side of the candle.

Wicks are often infused with a variety of chemicals to modify their burning characteristics. For example, it is usually desirable that the wick not glow after the flame is extinguished. Typical agents are ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate.

Based on measurements of a taper-type, paraffin wax candle, a modern candle typically burns at a steady rate of about 0. The luminous intensity of a typical candle is approximately one candela. The SI unit, candela, was in fact based on an older unit called the candlepower , which represented the luminous intensity emitted by a candle made to particular specifications a "standard candle".

The modern unit is defined in a more precise and repeatable way, but was chosen such that a candle's luminous intensity is still about one candela. The hottest part of a candle flame is just above the very dull blue part to one side of the flame, at the base. However note that this part of the flame is very small and releases little heat energy. The blue color is due to chemiluminescence , while the visible yellow color is due to radiative emission from hot soot particles.

The soot is formed through a series of complex chemical reactions, leading from the fuel molecule through molecular growth, until multi-carbon ring compounds are formed. The thermal structure of a flame is complex, hundreds of degrees over very short distances leading to extremely steep temperature gradients.

A candle flame is formed because wax vaporizes on burning. It has three distinct regions. The innermost zone, directly above the wick, contains wax that has been vaporized but that is unburnt. It is the darkest zone. The middle zone is yellow and luminous. As it is an oxygen depleted zone, insufficient oxygen exists to burn all of the wax vapor. As such, partial combustion of wax takes place. The zone also contains unburnt carbon vapor.

The temperature in this region is hotter than the innermost zone, but cooler than the outer zone. The outer zone is the area where the flame is the hottest and complete combustion of wax takes place. It is light blue in color and not normally visible. The main determinant of the height of a candle flame is the diameter of the wick. This is evidenced in tealights where the wick is very thin and the flame is very small.

Candles whose main purpose is illumination use a much thicker wick. One of Michael Faraday 's significant works was The Chemical History of a Candle , where he gives an in-depth analysis of the evolutionary development, workings and science of candles. According to the U. The liquid wax is hot and can cause skin burns, but the amount and temperature are generally rather limited and the burns are seldom serious.

The best way to avoid getting burned from splashed wax is to use a candle snuffer instead of blowing on the flame. A candle snuffer is usually a small metal cup on the end of a long handle. Placing the snuffer over the flame cuts off the oxygen supply. Snuffers were common in the home when candles were the main source of lighting before electric lights were available.

Ornate snuffers, often combined with a taper for lighting, are still found in those churches which regularly use large candles. Glass candle-holders are sometimes cracked by thermal shock from the candle flame, particularly when the candle burns down to the end.

A former worry regarding the safety of candles was that a lead core was used in the wicks to keep them upright in container candles. Without a stiff core, the wicks of a container candle could sag and drown in the deep wax pool. Concerns rose that the lead in these wicks would vaporize during the burning process, releasing lead vapors — a known health and developmental hazard. Lead core wicks have not been common since the s. Today, most metal-cored wicks use zinc or a zinc alloy , which has become the industry standard.

Wicks made from specially treated paper and cotton are also available. International markets have developed a range of standards and regulations to ensure compliance, while maintaining and improving safety , including:. For more much information about the use of frees standing cylinder and taper candles in traditional conjure and hoodoo practices and magic spells, see "The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic" by catherine yronwode Double action candles are 9" long jumbo candles that have been poured in two stages, so that they are half black and half another colour, according the usual colour symbolism of candles -- red for love, green for money, white for peace and spiritual blessings.

They are used to reverse troubles back to the person who sent them and are called "double action" because they both repel jinxes and crossed conditions and attract what is desired in the way of happiness and luck. Double action candles are not burned in the usual way -- they are generally "butted" before they are lit.

The original tip is cut off and a new tip is cut on the black half, so the "bad" black half will burn off first, leaving the "good" half at the end of the rite. The name of one's enemy is carved backwards in the black half and one's own name is carved normally in the coloured portion. One or more candle dressing hoodoo oils to reverse bad luck back to the enemy is applied to the black end, stroking away from oneself, and a dressing oil to draw what one wants is applied to the coloured half, stroking toward oneself.

Butted double action candles are sometimes burned on a flat mirror, to further aid the reversing spell. They may be dusted with Reversing sachet powder or circled with a ring of Crab shell powder because "Crabs walk backward" and uncross jinxes. Another way to burn double action candles is to carve a second tip on the black end, dress them as described above, and stick them into a nail that has been driven through a board.

The nail holds the candle horizontal, like a compass needle, and the black half is pointed toward one's enemy's home, while the coloured half points towards oneself. Both ends are lit at the same time. This is a messy way to burn candles, so use aluminum foil or a metal baking dish to confine the dripping wax to one area. Reversing -- also called reversible -- candles are 9" long jumbo candles that are similar in their uses to double action candles, but instead of being poured in two layers, they consist of a red core and a black outer layer.

The red shows through only at the tip. These candles are only found in red and black, and they are a very old style, still quite popular for reversing enemy work, breaking tricks, and uncrossing crossed conditions. They are often butted and burned upside down, and are often burned on a mirror, as described above. All the names and words carved or inscribed into reversing candles is generally done backwards, in mirror writing.

More expensive than plain offertory candles, figural candles are preferred by many practitioners when working unusual or extremely strong spells, because their visual symbolism is easy to see and by carving names or other features in them, they can be personalized to represent individuals, in what amounts to a cross between working with candles and working with doll-babies or poppets.

Most of the old figural candle styles are still manufactured. Among the most popular are the following: Green and yellow for control over finances , pink and red for control over love situations , blue and white for healing and blessing spells.

Many people think of votive candles as small, glass-encased candles, about 2 or 3 inches in height, but this is only one type of votive candle. In fact, such candles are defined by their function, not their form. However, for the purposes of clarity, in this article, i will refer to paper or glass encased candles under 2 inches in height as tea lights, those under 5 inches in height as votive candles and those that come in tall glass cylinders as novena and vigil candles.

Perhaps the first glass encased votive candles specifically marketed to hoodoo buyers as opposed to religious buyers were Jan-O-Sun brand jelly-jar style three-colour votive candles, sold by the Standard O and B Supply Company of Chicago in the s.

They look essentially like modern glass votive lights of today and seem to have come onto the market suddenly, to have achieved immediate popularity, and to have been in production from various makers since their introduction. Typically, votive candles are burned as the prelude to or result of a conditional vow: The petitioner asks a favour of a deity, saint, or spirit and offers recompense an ex voto if the wish is granted.

Under these circumstances, votive candles may be used either as inducements, as offerings, or as both. When employed as inducements, votive candles are burned during the course of making the petition. For instance, a petitioner may be awaiting a court case hearing in nine days, and will burn votive candles for the entire length of time as an inducement for a patron saint to hear his plea for help, all the while promising an additional offering, such as flowers, more candles, publication of the saint's name in the newspaper, or a donation to a charitable organization, if the court case has a successful outcome.

When votive candles are employed as offerings, the petition is made silently and the burning of a certain number of candles with the patron saint's picture on them in a church where all may see and recognize the patron saint's efficacy is a typical offering that is promised or vowed should the petition be granted. They can be burned as free-standing lights sometimes called "stubbies" rather than placed in holders if you wish to "read" the way their wax melts for the purposes of divination.

When in a holder, such a candle may burn for 10 - 15 hours. These candles come in an assortment of symbolic colours and they will fit in most sizes of glass or ceramic votive candle holders or can be used as free-standing "stubbies", which will make for a shorter burn time. In Mexico, small paper encased religious votive candles called "Lux Perpetua" were developed during the 19th century. These delightfully old-fashioned, hand-made devotionary religious candles predate paraffin was candles.

They are filled with a very soft grade of wax that may also contain animal fat, poured into a stiff paper cup or cylinder.

The paper is printed with a Catholic devotionary image. Imported into the United States, especially along the border with Mexico, they are now quite popular among African-American Catholics as well as with immigrants from Latin America. Lux Perpetua lights are much sought by those working in traditional forms of Mexican and Latin American espiritismo spiritualism and curandismo herbal spiritual healing. They were originally designed to be used at the table to keep foods and drinks warm hence the name "tea light" , but they have become quite popular as quickly burning and relatively safe lights for simple spell-casting or rootwork which is intended to be performed over the course of several days, one tea light candle per day.

Available in a wide variety of traditional colours, tea lights make great refills for glass votive candle holders, are extremely economical, and are easy to inscribe, fix, and dress with anointing oils. Their small size is also an advantage for busy people who wish to do continuing candle magic on successive days without leaving large candles unattended.

Novena candles are designed to be burned for nine days while a series of votary prayers are made. It is not necessary to dress them with magical hoodoo or conjure oils , although many people like to anoint them with named Saint Oils or hoodoo oils that match the candles they burn. Colour symbolism is not always important part of the lore accompanying these religious candles, although some saints do have certain colours associated with them, such as green for Saint Jude and red for Saint Expedite.

The use of glass-encased Novena candles is widespread in Catholic Latin America; as well as in syncretic Catholic African-Caribbean religions such as Santeria and Voodoo, and among the syncreticCatholic Mayans of Guatemala who burn glass encased candles to a black-garbed peasant figure called Maximon or Saint Simon. Beginning in the late s, Cuban, Mexican, Guatemalan, and Salvadoran immigrants -- both Catholics and Santeros -- entered the United States in great numbers, which led to the increased marketing of Catholic saint novena candles here.

Suddenly, not only could one find novena candles dedicated to universally well known Catholic figures like Saint Jude San Judas Thadeo , but candles featured a host of Catholic saints previously little known here, such as San Martin Caballero Saint Martin of Tours and the Nino de Atocha Infant of Atocha. Additionally, as time went on, manufacturers began to add more and more paper-labelled glass encased novena candles marketed to their inventories in order to appeal to this sector of the population.

Some of these candles honour Catholic folk saints and holy apparitions that are revered in Latin America but have not been officially approved by the Vatican, like the Anima Sola Lonely Soul , a Mexican favourite, and the Seven African Powers Siete Potentias , a staple image that represents the Cuban Santeria religious practice of mingling Catholic saints with the West African deities called Orishas.

On occasion one may even find the conflated Mayan-Catholic deity-saint Maximon often labelled Saint Simon-Judas on the candle shelf in a grocery or supermarket, a sure sign that a community of Guatemalan immigrants lives in the area. The arrival of these immigrants, with their firmly entrenched candle-burning customs, has had a strong effect on hoodoo candle-burning practices. After decades of exposure to people who find it efficacious to petition the saints, it is not uncommon now to hear from African-American Protestants who have little interest in the Catholic form of Christianity, that they would like to burn a Just Judge Justo Juez candle for a court case.

In short, a merger between hoodoo and Catholic candle burning traditions has been effected. Catholic novena candles bear colourful paper saint image labels, and many hoodoo vigil lights are similarly decorated. Others are printed with one-colour line-art and hand-lettered text silk-screened directly onto the glass.

The text and images found on vigil candles are typically the same as those used in hoodoo formulae for anointing oils , including Fast Luck , Uncrossing , Compelling , Money House Blessing , and the like.

While hoodoo glass encased vigil lights still retain such traditional African-American titles as Fast Luck and John the Conqueror , some have been outfitted with partial or complete Spanish translations of their names or intended manner of use.

In addition, the makers of silkscreened hoodoo candles may carry a Mayan item such as the chuparrosa love candle and they might add a Santeria line with special colours and designs for the orishas or their Catholic saint equivalents.

The evolving form of hoodoo candles has not greatly affected the traditional system of colour symbolism, although under the influence of Santeria's Catholic heritage, which invokes the brown-robed Saint Anthony as the finder of lost things and returner of lost lovers , brown candles, formerly used for court cases, are now also employed for the return of that which is lost.

Glass containers make it easy to pour two-, three-, and even seven-layer candles -- which led to the development of multi-colour symbolism. Probably the most popular of the multi-colour glass encased 7-day vigil candles is the red-and-black Reversible candle for returning evil to the one who sent it. This is simply a modification of the old standby two-colour free-standing jumbo altar candle called "Double Action," which is still manufactured and still quite popular.

However, other multi-coloured candles are only found in glass encased form, among them the seven-colour Lucky Prophet Lafin [sic] Buddha Brand All Purpose Novena Candle which grants "7 desires" to the user. The practice of dressing candles with anointing oils and magic herbs had to be modified considerably to accommodate the new 7-day vigil candles.

Since the sides of a glass encased candle cannot be rubbed, it is now customary for the retailer rather than the user to dress the candle. This is done by poking holes into the top of the candle with a nail preferably a coffin nail and then dripping an appropriate anointing oil and magic herbs into these holes, sometimes finishing off the top with symbolically coloured glitter.

This technique leaves the customer in danger of spilling the dressing oil while carrying the candle home, so in many stores the dressed candle is covered with a plastic sandwich bag or cling wrap, held in place by a rubber band. The introduction of glass encased candles also necessitated modifications in spells designed to be worked over a length of time.

The old pin or needle measuring technique, described above, cannot be used on glass encased candles, so timed burning or measuring the glass into sections with a marking-pen has taken the place of needles or pins among people who prefer the glass encased candles. If the capillarity is too great, the molten wax streams down the side of the candle. Wicks are often infused with a variety of chemicals to modify their burning characteristics. For example, it is usually desirable that the wick not glow after the flame is extinguished.

Typical agents are ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate. Based on measurements of a taper-type, paraffin wax candle, a modern candle typically burns at a steady rate of about 0.

Decorative candleholders, especially those shaped as a pedestal, are called candlesticks ; if multiple candle tapers are held, the term candelabrum is also used. The root form of chandelier is from the word for candle, but now usually refers to an electric fixture.

The word chandelier is sometimes now used to describe a hanging fixture designed to hold multiple tapers. Many candle holders use a friction-tight socket to keep the candle upright. In this case, a candle that is slightly too wide will not fit in the holder, and a candle that is slightly too narrow will wobble. Candles that are too big can be trimmed to fit with a knife; candles that are too small can be fitted with aluminium foil. Traditionally, the candle and candle holders were made in the same place, so they were appropriately sized, but international trade has combined the modern candle with existing holders, which makes the ill-fitting candle more common.

This friction tight socket is only needed for the federals and the tapers. For tea light candles, there are a variety of candle holders, including small glass holders and elaborate multi-candle stands. The same is true for votives. Wall sconces are available for tea light and votive candles.

For pillar-type candles, the assortment of candle holders is broad.
