What is a votive candle and how is it different to a normal candle?
A votive isn't necessarily 'different' than a typical candle, it is simply the name of a specific 'type' of candle.


The long, thin candles that are generally 10 inches (or so) long that start out a little thicker on the bottom then get a little thinner on top are called "tapers."

The short stubby ones that are around 2 inches high and almost as wide are called "votives."

There are also taller, wider candles that may be any height that are very thick around; those are called "columns."

The tiny (about 1/2-an-inch high), short, flat ones whose wax is inside of circular metal 'tins' and are generally used in decorative glass lamps and even to heat small fondues, are called "tea lights."

I'm sure you've seen candles that are generally thinner than one's pinky finger and about as short--those are "birthday candles!"

So, "votives" are just one of many shapes/dimensions of candle that are made.

Manufacturers of candle-centric items often specify the type and/or size of candle that is recommended. With its compact size, votives are a popular choice.
