History of Candles
Candles have been with us for thousands of years;
and candles have been giving light all over the world for this long.
Candle history goes back to the Egyptians and Roman periods. The
Egyptians used reeds from the Nile river and dried them, and tied
bunches of them together to make the first candles, or torches. During
the Roman period the Romans developed the wick candle bring light into
their homes and for many other uses. All early candles used tallow, a
whitish tasteless solid, or hard fat, obtained from cows, sheep and
Beeswax was introduced in the Middle Ages; and is
made from the honeycombs where bees stored their honey. Beeswax
candles greatly improved the making of candles. It burned clean and
didnt omit the odors and foul smoke that the tallow type made. Many
candles are made from beeswax today; however, candles are also made
with wax and other products to improve the candles burning, and
therefore they burn much longer.
