Pre-filled olive oil candles solve this problem.
We prefer the EZ Lights brand for two reasons:
1) The container is plastic, not glass, which is safer
2) The olive oil is gelled, so there is no mess.
Each cup has been pre-filled with a mixture of approximately 90% pure olive oil, with 10% parrafin added to keep it gelled and solid until it burns. A wick has already been inserted into each cup, so all you have to do is put it in the menorah and light it! The flame is clear and pleasant with almost no smoke.
Each box contains 44 vials, enough for the eight days of Chanukah.
Goldy says: "They're very easy to use and burn beautifully."
