    Fits perfectly with the new bees. It’s a great idea for lighting interiors , churches and castles in particular.

    YES! This goes perfectly with the 1.15 update and gives a use for bees besides food. Such as using beeswax to make candles, a much needed addition. Beeswax should be moderately rare, but would provide an easy mass supply for lighting.

    It could have a "candle suport" for hold it with the left hand and it will consume after 2 minecraft days and the candle suport will be crafted whit 3/4 iron ingots

    If they add canles, they should also add a variant similar to Terraria's Water Candle, which increases mob spawn rate. It would be found in e.g. the Dungeon (like in Terraria), to make it more dangerous, and maybe other structures as well.

    This item would be very helpful in mob farms.

    I was making a haunted mansion so I like this. The crafting recipe should be wax (something that makes it) and a torch and add dyes to change color.

    This could be revistied! With the newly added Honeycomb, you could make "Beeswax Candles" just another decorative item, there could even be dyed candles! Imagine all the different colors you could make"

    This needs more votes. Candles would add so much atmosphere to builds.

    Beeswax + string = candle

    I agree, and with the addition of bees the implementation of wax would be incredibly easy

    I would think a candle would be crafted with wax, which you could make with honeycombs and string (the wick) and dye it with regular dyes. and then you could light it with a flint and steel

    Candles light just like sea pickles (6, 9, 12, 15), but in air rather than in water.

    1 honeycomb + 1 string = 4 candles (Honeycomb needs another use imo, no need to smelt into wax unless wax would have an additional use. Idk why people are suggesting torch in the recipe, since those are made from coal and sticks, which have nothing to do with candles.)

    8 candles + 1 dye = colored candles

    4 candles + 1 iron ingot = candelabra (light level 15, can stand or hang like lantern)

    2 candles + 1 bowl = floating candle (light level 9, can be placed on top of water like a lily pad, or on top of leaves)

    Scented candles idk, sounds like a lot of additional design and coding to make work.

    The candles should be crafted with raw pork meat and one stick or pigs can drop fat and we use them to make it

    This should be a temporarily-like light source, it ends in about 3-5 minutes and can be altered by commands. To reignite the candles simply use flint & steal!

    They should be crafted using honey/wax

    maybe they can be crafted by using wax obtained from bee hives?

    I think that the best way to implement it would be to add a new drop to pigs so that they have a use other than meat, this is because with 1.15, adding another thing to get from beehives/nests would be a bad idea, because that would bring it to three, which I think is too many things from one resource

    EDIT:

    Also, beeswax is what honeycombs are made of in real life.

    I thought of this idea a few days back with my brother! He was the one to suggest Candles, and at first I was a bit skeptical, but when I realized they could act as an above ground version of Sea Pickles, I started to really like the idea!

    And now Bees are in the game, maybe you could get Beeswax from smelting Honeycombs or something like that.

    I hope the candle's recipe is honey and torch.

    This should’ve been added from the start of the game. We really need candles.

    I'd like it if they were craftable with wax you get from beehives. Wax + torch = candle, and you could stack them in groups in the same square the way you do sea pickles. 

    It'd be cool if you could dye them, too.

    Candles could be create by harvesting bee's wax from a bee and combining it with a stick to make a candle

    Enchanted candles that repel mobs would be really cool and it would be so cool to see what things could be done with that.

    I agree with candles being crafted with beeswax and string, and being dyeable, but I think they should just be a normal light source block. Having to place 4 candles in a single space to light an area would be pretty annoying. What if I just wanted one candle in a space?
