Candle Plate

Why a candle plate? The beauty and functionality of candles has captured people's attention for hundreds of years, and with good reason.


For starters, a candle doesn't require electricity and is incredibly portable. Before electricity powered homes, many people relied on candles to give them the light they needed after the sun went down.


However, there is one big problem with candles that make many people avoid them -- the excess wax that drips down and can spill onto tables and even the floor underneath.


The good news is that there is a way to enjoy the magic and wonder of candles without having to deal with the excess wax -- a candle plate. Indeed, candle plates are designed to catch the excess wax while forming a stylish part of the candle itself.

If you're looking for a good way to enjoy your candles without having to deal with the excess wax that comes with them, then you really can't go wrong with a good candle plate holder. If you're looking to purchase candle plates online, there are a few things you need to know in order to have the best experience possible.


First, you want to decide on the size of the candle plate itself. The best candle plate holder will be slightly bigger than your actual candle, which means that you need to know how large the candle you have really is. The measurement you're looking for is actually the diameter of the candle itself, so make sure to plan accordingly.

Another aspect to keep in mind when it comes to the size of the candle plate is how many candles you are actually going to place on the candle plate at one time. There are large candles that are actually two, three, or even four candles merged into one.


This will require a much larger candle plate than a single candle, so make sure that you make a note of this as you continue to browse the selection of candle plates. There are also many pillar candle plates available.

Next, you will want to think carefully about what material your candle holder or plate should be made from, such as a ceramic or glass or mirrored candle plate. Since the purpose of good candle plates is to safely collect the excess wax that drips down from your candle, you will want to make sure that the material that you choose is going to be durable and sturdy enough to handle the high heat and volume of the melted wax.

For example, there are pretty candle plates available that are made out of very thin materials that are similar to what you would find in a fine china set. However, this is not always suitable for a good candle plate, since the high heat can cause tiny cracks to appear, weakening the structure and eventually causing the entire plate to break.

The better material to choose would be a good wrought iron or even a sturdy ceramic that has been treated to withstand the heat of the candle wax. All things considered, a candle plate really is a great addition to your candle collection!
