Goodbye wax candles .... Hello fuel cells

Over the past 6 months I have phased out all wax candles in our rental votives and candelabras  by switching to fuel cell candles and now I am happy to say I have made the switch over for all our floating candles, making all our candles 100% wax free. 

 I have made the switch to fuel cell candles for a few reasons. 
a. they burn cleaner 
b. they burn more consistant 
c. they leave no soot or wax residue behind 
d. clean up is a breeze 
e. There is little smoke when they are blown out 

The best part is they are non toxic and the empty cells are completely recyclable.

Below is a few pictures of what they look like  floating and in a votive holder. I love how the flame of the floating candles reflect off the  water underneath the candle. Unlike disk wax candles the the candle blocked the reflection of light from underneath.
