Votive candles are small, decorative candles that are commonly used in religious ceremonies and rituals. They are typically made from wax and come in various sizes, shapes, and colors. Votive candles are often placed in special holders or containers, known as votive holders, which are designed to safely hold the candle while it burns. These candles are widely used in churches, temples, and other places of worship, where they are lit as a symbol of prayer, intention, or remembrance. Votive candles create a serene and peaceful ambiance, casting a soft and flickering light that adds a mystical touch to any space.
