Tea lights - An alternative to candles
A tea light is a candle encased in a thin metal or plastic cup that allows the wax to liquefy completely while burning. This can be used to create a soft ambient glow in the room.
Tealights can be made from many types of waxes including paraffin, palm, and soy. The type of wax used determines how long the tealight will last.
A more modern alternative to a flame-based tea light, electric tealights use no flame and are much safer to handle. They are often incorporated into freestanding lace structures or placed in decorative candle holders that cannot accommodate a large flame-based tealight.
