There are many types of candles, which can be generally divided into two categories: daily lighting candles (ordinary candles) and handicraft candles (special purpose candles) according to the purpose of use.

Lighting candles are relatively simple, usually white rod-shaped candles.

Craft candles can be subdivided into many kinds. First of all, they can be divided into jelly craft candles and scented craft candles. Generally, various colors (such as birthday candles) are displayed due to the addition of ingredients, and the shapes are also made into various forms (such as spiral, digital, etc.) due to the need to integrate novelty, decoration, ornamental, and functionality.

With the improvement of everyone’s quality of life, scented candles have gradually entered the lives of more and more people. Lighting one when taking a bath, one when drinking burgundy, and one before going to bed can add some interest to life. Appetite is created by ourselves. As long as we live our life with heart, life will treat us kindly.
