The polycarbonate votive inserts are filled with a strong scented soy candle. Using these soy votive inserts eliminate the wax mess left over in your candle holders when the candles are finished burning. Simply take the empty votive insert out when your candle is done, discard it, and replace with a new one. The inserts should not be used without a candle holder which should be placed on a heat resistant surface such as a mirror or charger. These scented soy candles will freshen the air in your home for hours and are available in beautiful colors. These votive inserts for votive candles will fit into any holder made for a standard size votive candle. A cotton and paper fiber wick produces a beautiful burning flame. Each soy candle will burn about 12 hours, is about 2 inches tall, and 2 inches diameter.
