Best Candle Warmer Lamp

Updated on March 10, 2017
Perfect Gift for All Occasions
Perfect Gift for All Occasions | Source

I used to love burning candles.

I have favorite scents that I buy and have burned throughout the house, especially when all the windows have been shut.

In the spring and summer months, I enjoy honeysuckle and lilac.

During the fall and winter months, there is nothing like mulled cider or mulberry scented candles creating a welcoming atmosphere.

Even though I do love candles, I do not love the black soot that goes along with burning them.

I started noticing a shear, black oily film on my walls, ceilings, and lamp shades.

If you have ever tried to clean this film, you know it is quite a process. You may even have to give up and re-paint your walls and ceilings and/or buy new lamp shades.

I couldn't live without my candles.

I had to figure out a way to keep the candles and their wonderful scents without keeping the sooty film that was being found throughout my house.

My Great Discovery

One day I was playing on Amazon.com (one of my favorite shopping sites) when I discovered Candle Warmers Etc. Signature Aurora Candle Warmer Lamp, I was thrilled. I found a product to replace the actual burning of the candle in order to have the great scent in my house without the oily residue on my walls, ceilings, and furniture.

I went crazy buying two for my house and then several more as gifts for family and friends.

When I love something, everyone else just has to try it, too. I was absolutely giddy, and they loved these lovely, little functional home décor items.

For less than $20 each, I had found a gift that pleased everyone.

Why Candle Warmers Etc. Signature Aurora Candle Warmer Lamp are the Best

With the top candle warmer, you do not have to worry about the black soot, and you can reap the benefits of your favorite aromatic candle within minutes of flipping the switch on the cord. The top candle warmer heats the candle from the top with its small 25 watts warming bulb.

I found that the 25 watt bulbs burn out quicker when I am using them for approximately a month. They are expensive, too, at approximately $8.00 each. I found that a 20 watt bulb lasts longer and is much cheaper, approximately $12.00 for a ten pack. Quite a difference in price for a longer lasting bulb that has the same warming function.

Why Candle Warmer Lamps are Better than the Candle Warming Plates

I have tried the candle warmers that heat from the bottom up, but the scent takes up to an hour or more (depending on the size of the candle) to start filtering through the air. Also, with the candle warmers that heat from the bottom up, I constantly forgot to turn them off. In my house, that is akin to leaving the curling iron on. When my husband walks through after I have gone somewhere and found I had left a candle warmer on, I received the “fire hazard” lecture.

With the candle warmer lamp, I am reminded to turn it off because it also serves as a small lamp. Seeing the soft glow of the lamp, reminds me to flip the switch on the cord if I am leaving or going to bed. No more “fire hazard” lectures. These little items may have saved my marriage.

More Benefits from the Top Candle Warmer Lamp

The Candle Warmers Etc. Signature Aurora Candle Warmer Lamp is aesthetically pleasing to any home décor. It comes in black, bronze, pewter, and brass to fit any style. There are also a variety of decorative lamp shades you can interchange through the year.

If the burning candle is gone, so are most of the threats to allergies and asthma issues that some members of your family may have to breathing in the smoke.

The candle and its scent last longer with the top candle warmer than if you burned it. In the long run, I save more money because I can use candles longer. Also, I can use different sizes of candles. The only drawback is that it is a round base for up to a large 22 ounce candle. Some decorative candles come in different jar shapes that will not work with this particular warming lamp.

Regardless of the minor drawbacks, I would recommend this product. It is perfect for personal use and it is definitely the perfect gift idea for any occasion.

      This is so interesting. I am a big fan of candles and tart warmers. However, I haven't tried a candle warmer. I've only seen the kind that heat from the bottom, not from the top like this product. I am really interested in buying this based on your review. Thanks!

      Hey everyone, thanks for your comments and votes! :-)

      I love to switch my candles out throughout the year, so I am using mulled cider and mulberry from last year. The candles still have as strong scent as they did last year. I put my lids back on them when I switch them out and store them.

      I have bought bulbs at Lowes, Hobby Lobby, and Amazon. I get the best deal online. The most I get in the packages at the store are 2 bulbs. I really haven't gone through too many bulbs yet, but I can say it is cheaper than burning then buying a new candle.

      Thanks, again, for your comments and votes. I appreciate all of you. :-)

      Awesome! Perfect for scent-sitive people like me! Love scented candles and oil and still use them at home...diffuses the smell of cooking specially now that the windows are shut because of the cold weather. Scents set moods in the house. Thanks for sharing. Will be checking it out!

      The candles do last a lot longer when being used with a candle warmer, I've been thinking about purchasing a candle warmer & am so happy I've held out until now, now I know what the best one is to buy! Is there a special (bulk) place you get your 20-watt bulbs from?

      What an interesting device -- I'd never heard of them before. Of course, it costs a little more per use because of the electricity, but I presume candles last longer. Voting this Up and Interesting. SHARED.

      I enjoyed reading about this product, and now it has my brain cells humming. I don't know why a person couldn't do this with any small lamp with a neck. Just be sure to use the right size bulb (the 20 watt as you suggested) and place the lamp and shade over the jar candle of any shape or size.

      Thanks, Teaches! I love mine and those who have received them as gifts from me love them too. I think it is that they have the light that melts the wax from the top, plus the just look nice.

      Thanks for dropping by! :-)

      I like this idea, Susan. I haven't seen them in the shops I frequent, but perhaps with the holiday approaching they are now out for purchase. This would really be nice to have in a quiet corner.
