As someone who works for a media company, being *very online* is literally in my job description. The majority of my days are spent either creating or consuming content, so you can imagine how many product recommendations I’m bombarded with on a daily basis. Most of the time, I stay strong in my resolve to not immediately buy every single thing the internet recommends to me. But if there’s one trending product that has me on the verge of hitting “add to cart” every time I see it, it’s the candle warmer lamp.
If you’ve also seen these fixtures floating around your social feed, you likely understand the appeal. First of all, the style factor cannot be overstated. From vintage-inspired designs with ornate glass shades to more modern versions in sleek silhouettes, it’s no surprise that the internet is freaking out over these chic little lamps. They look great on bookshelves, kitchen counters, nightstands—basically anywhere you can think to put one.
And of course, candle warmer lamps are functional as well. When the lamp is on, the lightbulb gives off warmth that fully melts the candle wax. This releases the scent without the need for an open flame—a win for those with kids or pets and anyone who cares about air quality! Because it’s only melting the wax and not burning through it, your candles last way longer, too. Especially if you like to splurge on pricey candles, a candle warmer lamp is well worth it to preserve your favorite scents.
If you’re itching to try this trend as badly as I am, here are some of the best candle warmer lamps I’ve got my eye on:
