What is a Candle Follower

https://amzn.to/2P1CQXB
We are always celebrating something and we are always using candles during the holiday season... so I though it would be helpful to pass on information about "candle followers". This is a helpful item that many people are not aware is available.

What is a Candle Follower?

These are glass or metal tubes with an internal stricture partway along, which sit around the top of a lit candle. As the candle burns, the wax melts and the follower holds the melted wax in, whilst the stricture rests on the topmost solid portion of wax. Candle followers are often deliberately heavy or weighted to ensure they move down as the candle burns lower, maintaining a seal and preventing wax escape. The purpose of a candle follower is threefold:

  • To contain the melted wax, making the candle more efficient, avoiding mess, and producing a more even burn.
  • As a decoration, either due to the ornate nature of the device, or (in the case of a glass follower) through light dispersion or coloration.
  • If necessary, to shield the flame from wind.

Candle followers are often found in churches on altar candles.
