Origin of Candles
Candles have been used for more than 5,000 years to illuminate mankind’s celebrations but not many are aware of its origin.
It is said that the first candles were invented by Ancient Egyptians, who used rushlights or torches (made by soaking the pithy core of reeds in melted animal fat). However, rushlights had no wick like a true candle. Early wicked candles used by the Egyptians only started in 3,000 B.C. It is believed that Romans are the first to develop a True Wicked candle about 500 B.C. These were true dipped candles and made from tallow. Some evidence also pointed to for candles made from whale fat in China dating back to the Qin Dynasty (221–206 BC) and in India, where wax from boiling cinnamon was used for temple candles.
In parts of Europe, the Middle-East and Africa, where lamp oil made from olives was readily available, candle making remained unknown until the early middle-ages. Candles were primarily made from tallow and beeswax in ancient times, but have been made from spermaceti, purified animal fats (stearin) and paraffin wax in recent centuries.
It is also known that candles played an important role in early religious ceremonies. Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights which centers on the lighting of candles, dates back to 165 B.C. There are several Biblical references to candles, and the Emperor Constantine is reported to have called for the use of candles during an Easter service in the 4th century.
Candles have come a long way since their initial use. When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb in the late 1800’s, candles became obsolete as a method of lighting. But they remain as a trusted backup during power failures and as a chosen source of lighting for romantic occasions. Although no longer man’s major source of light, they continue to grow in popularity and use. Today, candles symbolize celebration, mark romance, soothe the senses, define ceremony, and accent home decors — casting a warm and lovely glow for all to enjoy. Who doesn’t love candles? That diverse, multipurpose lump of wax with a wick has given us light for hundreds of years and is now a popular accessory in many homes for that and other benefits. Scented candles from Brands like Yankee Candles are also fashionable as an aromatherapy method of fragrance diffusion and as a simple method of introducing pleasant scents to the home. With so many uses and designs, people nowadays enjoys the craft of candle making as a means to relax and enjoy the practice of creating something from scratch which is beautiful, brings pleasure to the senses and has practical applications as well.
