I don’t know about you guys but for me personally, sometimes tealights are like mini-beacons of serenity and comfort in my home, especially when its dull, grey and cold outside. There is something peculiarly mindful and meditative with tealights exuding their warmth and light while gently dancing with the air surrounding them.
Did you know that tealights derive their rather strange name from their prevalent usage in warming teapots? Moreover tealights can also be used for a variety of other purposes, such as heating scented oil or simply as decorative accent lighting.
That being said, in this article, we’re not going to talk too much about tealights but more about “tealight holders”, as we’ve listed 20+ of the most mesmerizing tealight holders to decorate your meditation space with, be it a single room or simply sprinkled here and there in your home.
I hope you’ll enjoy this awesome list!
