Candles are like so retro or romantic depending on how you look at it. Usually the big draw for spending some extra cash on a ball of wax is that it will smell nice. That was until the Rainbow Candles Set, a set of candles that will glow like a rainbow because of science.
These candles light just like any other but what happens next, that’s the magic. Instead of a boring yellow flame (how pedestrian!) they give you a rainbow hue of wonder making your moment just a little more magical than it would have been otherwise. The way it’s done is through simple science.
The candles are made with a ring of combustion control and the colors are achieved simply by using other flammable materials that burn different colors. The candles include copper, lithium, potassium and sodium. When they burn, they burn in different colors. Simple but effective. The different colors combine to create the rainbow effect which lasts about five minutes. After that it just burns like a normal candle. But for five minutes, it’s glorious. The Rainbow Candles Set is $49.
