U.S. candle sales are estimated at over $3 million every year. Even with all of the room fragrance options, people still choose candles.
Candles also offer an ambiance and relaxation that no other fragrance option offers. Candles are perfect for romantic or cozy nights in and are just a nice addition to any home decor.
Because so many people still love candles, the candle industry is under many changes. From candles made for specific occasions and consumers to uniquely shaped candles, there’s a candle for everyone.
What are some unique candle ideas? Here are 5 unique and wonderful smelling candles to display in your home.
1. Coiled Candles
We all know the feeling — you find the perfect candle, but it doesn’t last that long. Fortunately, coiled candles offer a solution.
Coiled candles not only look unique but they’re long-lasting. Some last as long as 60 hours! Light the candle and coiled candles self-extinguish after a certain amount of time. Unwind it around the coil to burn more.
