Not all luminaries are created equal. A luminary candle is commonly used outdoors to light up an object or indoors on plates or other non-traditional settings. A normal votive candle is meant to burn in a special votive holder which protects it from the elements and contains the melted wax allowing most of the wax to be consumed which creates a longer burn time. Luminaries or luminary candles are meant to give off more light and burn brighter than traditional candles. At The Candle Depot our custom made luminary candles contain a larger wick which creates a bigger flame and thus provides better illumination with less chance of accidently blowing out.
Common uses for luminaries include: pumpkins, bags, jars, glasses, statues, ceramic creations, vigils, ceremonies and protests. Great for Halloween, Christmas, Easter, birthdays and general celebrations. You may also have interest in our floating candles, pillar candles and votive candles.
