I have about 300 or so tealight candles.

Thinking of buying a few more.

-Tealight candles can be put into oil burners which then turn into "little stoves" :)

-They are very cheap

-In the right lantern holder thing they create a nice funnel of heat that can be used to warm your hands, dry cloths, stick in your shirt to warm up and cook marshmallows

-Infinite shelf life (I believe)

-If you shut yourself in a small room and light about 10 of them it will warm the room up, but its probably not the best/cheapest/safest way of doing such a thing.

I prefer candles in mason jars.

My wife and I make our own candles. We buy the wax and wics off the internet, and then spend a few hours making them.
