A touch of history about candles
Candles have come a long way since 3000 BC when the ancient Egyptians are said to have made candles with the white fat of cattle or sheep. There are even earlier beliefs from historians;that primitive men used dried branches dipped in fat to produce light.
These days we no longer need a wick, just 1 or 2 batteries or a recharging unit and Bob's your uncle; a modernised version of an authentic candle. Flameless LED candles are surprisingly cheap, realistic and will compliment any home decor just nicely.
Wax candles are pretty expensive to buy, especially authentic beeswax wax candles. Many cheaper candles are made with paraffin,and many are also mixed with plastic material. If authentic 100% beeswax candles are in a sale for £2 don't be too surprised if they are not beeswax at all. Authentic beeswax candles can cost around £25 for a 60g candle with up to 50 hours burn time.
If your looking for th perfect candle to set off your romantic valentines meal in style, why not try a flameless LED candle?
1#The tealight LED flameless Candle
The tealight LED flameless candle is great to look at. It's available in packs of 12 and I keep these little rays of sunshine under my sink in the event of a powercut.There is nothing quite so annoying than being stranded in the dark; banging into door frames in the hope to find a box of matches and a few wax candles or a torch.
It doesn't take the brains of an Arch Bishop to realise the potential fire hazard of regular wax candles,especially when you have toddlers or pets jumping around.
The tealight LED flameless candle can flicker for over 24 hours (if you were to leave it on continuously that is).This shows, just how often you will have to buy a battery. They are available in a whole bunch of different colours and are also perfect for outdoor celebrations too!. Whats even more attractive about them is the cheap price.
