Lucid Liquid Candles provide a better way to bring real candlelight into your event or venue. They are refillable and everlasting. The candle is made of a polymer that never burns down. The body of the candle is a reservoir for Lucid Liquid paraffin. The removable top contains a fiberglass wick that reaches into the reservoir and draws up the liquid. Only the Lucid Liquid is burned - the candle and wick are permanent.
Light the wick and enjoy clean, natural candlelight.
Our Dinner Candles feature the Universal Adapter - a unique, flexible end piece that fits securely into almost any candle holder designed for traditional tapers.
Occasionally, very shallow or angled candlestick sockets have trouble accommodating the Universal Adapter. Please ensure that your Lucid Candle fits securely in your candle holder before filling and lighting.

Lucid Candles are the safest natural flame candles obtainable. They avoid the common hazards associated with wax candles because they don't burn down. They don't drip, gutter, explode or throw burning cinders. Lucid Liquid ignites only when vaporized on a wick but will not catch fire alone. If you drop a lit match in a bowl of Lucid Liquid it will extinguish the match!
Lucid Candle tops are secured with a twist lock so if they are knocked over only a small amount of liquid can seep out the vent hole. Lucid Liquid is clear and will not stain or damage textiles or furnishings at your event.
Of course, because Lucid Candles have a real flame, please exercise caution when using them.
