Floating wicks are also forms of diyas which float on water. The purpose of such diyas is to beautify and illuminate the pools of homes and surroundings.
These diyas have an elegant and soft appearance and are perfect for lighting and decoration purposes. Diyas are a representation of enlightenment, knowledge, and wisdom. In Hinduism, diyas are also used to welcome the goddess Laxmi into the house. Floating diyas are used for decoration and meditation.
How to use:
Take a glass cup or a bowl, fill it 1/3rd with water, 1/3rd oil, and drop a floating wick. Light it and enjoy the fluttering wick. Add a drop or 2 of food color to the water for added beauty.
Pro tip - just fill up the whole cup with oil and 2 drops of food color. Your lamp will burn longer.
