Candle Making for Profit or Pleasure

Candles have been in use since the Stone Ages. In fact archelogists have discovered references to the candle as far back as 3,000 BC. For the most part these candles have been found in Egypt as well as the island of Crete in Greece.

The first "candles" were called "rush lights" or "rush dips".The distinguishing feature of  "rush lights" was they had no wicks. These candle-like items were probably made from rocks or stones forming a depression into which animal fat was poured.

This crude beginning has evolved into the elaborate world of candle making which we experience today.

If asked, many people would describe a candle as a taper which is used for decorative effects around the house. The "colonial" tapers may have been the beginning of the candle industry as we know it today but the imagination and development of the modern world of candle making will astound you.
