Four of the best floating candles in 2021 in comparison

What are their benefits, how you can best use them and more, you can find out in the following guide.

They serve festive occasions and are the best substitute for household candles. As a special decoration, they swim without aids and are made of wax. Floating candles can swim because they are lighter than water and therefore do not sink. This is because the density of water is higher than candle wax, which is made of stearin or paraffin. With their special flat shape and the curvature on the underside, they have a small air chamber. That makes them more stable on water. They are the size of tea lights and come in packs of 8, 10, 20, 24, 34 and 80 pieces. The burning time of 4-8 hours depends on the amount of wax and the type of wax.
