Does a pillar candle need a holder?
The question is if the candle is thick enough to stand and burn into itself. If it is, you may not need a holder for your candles. You will need one for the thin pillar candles, which do not stand without support. This is to keep it from falling over and causing a fire. The other burners aim to catch any wax or debris that may fall.
How many candles do I need for my altar?
