Amazon | Good Deals: Yontif Candles

Over Yontif, it was pointed out that I put “Jesus Candle” on my shopping list for Yontif. Many years ago, I had forgotten to purchase a 3-day or 2-day yontif candle and all of the stores that carried the candles were already closed for the holiday. So I ran to the supermarket to see if I could find something. I reached out to the store clerk who pointed me in the direction of the ethnic candles, near the Latin foods usually. Several of the candles, I found had pictures of various saints or Jesus, but there were also a many in various colors and they lasted a while. They were definitely a better option than the smelly fragrant ones that I had found. These candles can last anywhere between 3 and 7 days. So we usually keep a few in the house. When I go to the supermarket now and can’t find them, I usually ask where the Jesus candles are because otherwise, they have no clue what I am talking about.

Here are some deals on Yontif Candles on Amazon:

I usually refill this smaller bottle from the larger jugs.

  • A CLEAN BURN: Our tiki torch fuel is processed and refined to create a powerful light source that is smoke and odor free and without harmful soot or other pollutants often found in kerosene.
  • ASSORTED COLORS: Pick one of our five colored lamp oils to customize the look of your flame to match your decor and style. Choose from transparent, green, blue, purple, or red shades.
  • MULTIPURPOSE USE: Use inside the house on a dining room table, in centerpieces, or for lamps, lanterns, and torch style candlesticks. Perfect for use to kindle Shabbat candles and more.
  • OUTDOOR DECORATIONS: For elegant parties and events, use this fuel to light up tiki torches and other lanterns to light up pathways, stairs and aisles, or to beautify wedding celebrations.
  • EMERGENCY LIGHT: Not only for gardens, patios or yards, use this instead of candles or flashlights during blackouts or power outages. The spout is designed to easily fill cans and canisters.
