Candle making has been in existence for hundreds of years and there is no doubt that it has its roots in ancient Greece. In Greece, the process of making candles dates back to about 200 B.C. When candles were first made in the western world, there were no rules regarding the quality or even consistency of the wick. They were simply used for light and illumination.
In the early Middle Ages, candles were made using beeswax and olive oil as the waxes. These candles were produced using the basic process of melting wax and pouring into a mold and allowed to cool.
Making candles was developed by individual families in various places throughout the history. For centuries candles were made in homes and in churches. They were often used to celebrate special occasions such as marriages, funerals, birthdays and other occasions. The first candles were created with candles mixed with oil and water. These were called “water candles” and were made by placing a small jar of water on the bottom of the candle, which would then be filled with oil and put into the mold.
Today, candles come in a wide variety of different kinds. Many of these candles are designed to use only one type of wick. Others come in numerous colors and designs. Some of the most popular include those that come in the same wick shape as traditional candles; they are called taper, tulip, or wick, and these candles are considered a modern version of candles.
