The flame of a candle is more than meets the eye.

The scientific process behind it keeps it in a teardrop shape.

When you light a flame, the surrounding air heats up and rises. Warm air rises, and at the bottom of the flame, oxygen and colder air replace it.

Cooler air is likewise heated and rises, resulting in a continuous cycle of moving air upwards, forming the elongated shape of a typical flame.

So, no matter whatever candle you light taper/tealight/scented , it will naturally take on the shape of a teardrop.
