Flameless Candles

Flameless candles are 100% fire safe, battery operated candles that look and feel just like regular candles. Made of real scented wax, these candles are versatile and are available in a wide variety of styles, additions and decorating option. The use of flameless candles as replacements for the real thing also allows for greater flexibility when using them as part of any interior design, as well as in fixed or portable table and party decorations.

These candles range in size from the tiniest of tea light candles to large pillars, cones and tapers and are also available with scent inserts and fans to disperse any fragrance of your choice over an entire room area. Moreover, because they do not produce any heat on their own the outer wax shell is safe from melting and can be adorned with any type of decoration you might want to use, even those that previously could not be used in tandem with real candles.

Using Flameless Candles

Flameless candles can be used to decorate any room in your home, without restriction. You can even use them in a nursery without fear of setting it alight. Their rechargeable batteries can power a single unit for up to 700 hours before needing to be replaced, making them very handy during extended power outages. They are available with fake wicks, furthering the illusion of a real candle and even come with timers and remote controls.

Their innate versatility makes flameless candles ideal for use as table centerpieces and mantel displays and even outside, on tables or around a hot tub. There are wall sconce versions available as well, for that perfect touch in a den or family room. Because of their long battery life, they can be set with a built in timer for use in bedrooms, nurseries, and bathrooms as a low cost night light or wall lamp.

The only limit in using flameless candles to decorate a home or party location is in your own imagination. No heat, no smoke, battery operated- they are a very green solution to lighting any area with style. Holiday decorations and party displays take on a whole new dimension when you use flameless candles.
