Candles come in a multitude of varieties. However, that has not always been the case. Candles originated around 200 BC. They were primarily made from tallow and beeswax. Since beeswax was costly, candles were made of tallow in Ancient Rome since most people were not able to afford candles made from beeswax. In the 13th century, candle making turned into a craft guild in England and France with many candle makers going house to house to make candles or selling their own candles in small candle shops. In the 19th century, candles were being mass produced thanks to a new candle making machine that made about 1,500 candles per hour. This made candles more affordable. Back in the day, the common use for candles and oil lamps was for illumination. As incandescent light bulbs were invented in 1879 and other methods of lighting were introduced, the sales of candles declined drastically.
The primary use of candles these days are for decorative and fragrant purposes. They can be used as centerpieces, party favors, and they make great gifts. Candles have a calming effect and set a nice, relaxing tone. They can completely transform an atmosphere and create a pleasant ambience. The fragrance of a candle can be quite soothing too.
