The candle which has a rigid wax that makes sure that the candles stand all alone in a bowl or on a platform without melting into a flabby muddle is known to be a pillar candle. These candles are present in different sizes, shapes and can have a great height as compared to other candles. These types of candles are mostly used in religious ceremonies, festivals and in dramatic events. These candles come in different colors and can be scented as well. Some pillar candles can be of single wick and some can be of multi wick. The creation of these candles is same as the conventional candles, but the material used is a little more than the others.
