Luminary Candles

Luminary candles are very similar to votive candles in comparison. The primary differences between luminary and votive candles are very noticeable, however. Votive candles are generally burnt inside of a votive glass and produce a relatively small flame. The votive glass will contain the wax as the flames consumes it, therefore, the candle stays lit for the maximum burning period. Since luminaries / luminary bags are meant to be bright and illuminate the darkness, the candles used inside them have a much larger flame. These luminary candles also use a larger wick to consume more wax and are semi-resistant to the outside elements. As a result, these candles should always be placed in a luminary bag or on a plate away from any flammable structure or material.
