In Pakistan, there is a lot of use of earthen ware pottery, with a bit of paint, these little pots turn into lovely holders with colorful wax poured to set inside.

Tealight, also known as nightlight, is different from a regular taper as it is encased in a thin metal cover and liquefies completely while lit. In these the wick is tethered to a piece of metal to stop it from floating to the top of the molten wax and burning before the wax does. Tealights are often used as food warmers. They are also suitable for subtle lighting and for heating scented oil. Generally, tea lights give off very low light unless grouped together; they were designed to be a long-lasting comfort light rather than a working or reading light. Tealights differ from Nightlights by the duration of burning; a tealight usually burns for 4 to 5 hours while a nightlight, which is larger, may burn for a whole night (about 8 to 10 hours).
Use in aromatherapy is well established as these are truly therapeutic ... the soothing fragrance with their soft glow and lovely colors, promote feelings of calm and tranquility bringing peace and healing.
Use diffusers, add a little bit of essential oils of aromatherapy is poured on to the lid of the diffusers to surround the area with relaxing soft aromas.
In Feng Shui it is said that one should light tapers regularly to bring good vibes into the house. This also balances the elements essential in Feng Shui beliefs. Floating types balance the elements of water and fire. Colors and shapes define different effects when looking for Feng Shui balance, though.
