Candles: Myth vs. Truth
Just in case you have some misconceptions about flameless candles, we’re here to dispel them.
Myth: If I have a traditional candle in a candleholder, it can’t possibly start a fire.
Truth: A container can help you burn candles more safely, but it won’t prevent all risk of fires. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, more than half of all home candle fires start when something flammable, like curtains, bedding or decorations, gets too close to the candle. Imagine a curtain blowing into the top of a hurricane candleholder. The risk is still very real, even with a container. That’s why flameless candles are the safest way to go.
Myth: Flameless candles don’t look like real candles. They’re not even made out of wax.
Truth: The Amazing Flameless Candles are handcrafted out of the same wax of traditional flamed candles! Plus, some styles give the illusion of dripping wax. No one will be able to tell the difference.
Myth: But flameless candles don’t have a scent and I like my home to smell like a fancy day spa.
Truth: The Amazing Flameless Candles come in a variety of light and relaxing scents infused into the candle with natural ingredients. Choose from vanilla, cinnamon, mandarin spice, honeysuckle, or breeze.
Myth: Flameless candles can get too hot and might be risky if accidentally left on for too long.
Truth: The Amazing Flameless Candles don’t get hot! Go ahead and touch the “flame,”—the small LED light stays nice and cool. Plus, they can be set on a timer for anywhere from four to eight hours. Use them to light a campsite, set a romantic mood in the bedroom or place them around the house for a party and you won’t have to worry that you didn’t turn them off before going to sleep.
Myth: Flameless candles are more expensive than wax candles.
Truth: A 14.5-ounce, three-wick candle from a popular bath store can burn for 25 to 45 hours and costs $20. But the LED light technology in the similarly priced Amazing Flameless Candles will stay lit for approximately 450 hours of battery life, and will last for 10 years overall.
