Candles Are Us

image

The National Candle Association (NCA) founded in 1974, is the major trade association representing U.S. candle manufacturers and their suppliers. NCA also acts on behalf of the candle industry in helping promote the safe use and enjoyment of candles, and monitoring issues impacting the industry (National Candle Association, 2016).

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., NCA has approximately 100 candle manufacturers and suppliers as members, and is widely recognized as the leading technical authority on candle manufacturing (National Candle Association, 2016).

Facts & Figures About Candles

U.S. retail sales of candles are estimated at approximately $2 billion annually, excluding sales of candle accessories.

Candles are used in 7 out of 10 U.S. households.

Candles come in an endless variety of sizes and shapes, from tapers, votives, pillars, and tealights to container/jar candles, floating candles, liturgical candles, outdoor candles, novelty candles, utility candles and birthday candles.

Manufacturer surveys show that 90% of all candles are purchased by women.

Votives, container candles and pillars are currently the most popular types of candles with American consumers.

Candle industry research indicates that the most important factors affecting candle sales are scent, color, cost, and shape.

The retail price of a candle generally ranges from approximately 50 cents for a votive to $30 for a large pillar or jar candle. Highly unusual or embellished artisan candles can be $200 or more (National Candle Association, 2016).

Candle Safety Tips

There’s nothing tricky to taking care of your candles. A few simple rules and a little common sense are all it takes to keep your candles looking lovely.

Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place. Tapers or dinner candles can be stored flat to prevent warping.

You can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.

Wax drippings can be removed from most candleholders by running hot water over them. Some home care experts prefer removing wax by first placing the candleholder in the freezer for an hour or so. This allows the wax to shrink and easily pop out when the candleholder is removed from the freezer.

Never use a knife or a sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass votive holder. It might scratch or weaken the glass, causing it to break upon subsequent use.

Avoid burning candles in any glass item not specifically designed for candles. Glass candleholders are specifically manufactured to withstand the temperature changes that occur when burning a candle. Everyday glassware is not designed for burning candles.

Votive holders will clean more easily afterward if you add a few drops of water to the glass before inserting the candle. Caution: Don’t add more than a few drops of water and don’t add water unless you intend to burn the candle immediately afterward. Over time, a candle wick could absorb the water and won’t burn properly.

Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlight. Candles may fade if they are left in bright light for an extended period of time (National Candle Association, 2016).
