1.The NAME of the candle.

The English name of the candle is known to everyone - the candle (CANDLE), which actually comes from the cagede in Latin.The root of the word-cand is the meaning of light, white light, and the suffix "le" has the meaning of "small".


2.The ORIGIN of the candle

The early candle originated from the wax (beeswax) or fat, tied to the bark, vines and other wood chips made of torches.Beeswax candles developed from the torches have been used in places with historical origins such as Egypt, Greece, Rome, and China since the 3rd to 4th centuries BC.After that, there were various and individual developments in various parts of the world.


3.History of European candles

In the early 9th century, Europe had candles made from animal fat.When burning, it is able to emit the natural scents of beeswax ,which is very noble and extravagant.

Therefore, it was only used  by the wealthy upper classes, families, monasteries, ceremonies, etc.Ordinary people usually use candles that are easy to get started with animal fat. Because the candle is made of animal fat, the price is very low, but the shortcoming is obvious, that is, it takes half an hour to cut the wick, and the black smoke is so heavy when burning!



4.History of Japanese candles


Around the 6th century, the Nara era, with the introduction of Buddhism from China to Japan, Japan had a candle.


In the late Muromachi period (1336 - 1573), the method of making wooden candles was introduced.


In the Edo period (1603–1867), Japanese candles made of wild lacquer trees began to be produced. At that time, they made candles in various places and transported them to Edo. However, due to the use of wax from wild lacquer trees, the production of candles is time consuming, so the cost is very high, and it is a luxury that is difficult for civilians to start with.


The most prosperous period of wax production with wild lacquer trees was at the end of the Meiji era (1868-1911). At that time, the production process was very perfect, and gradually expanded the scope of use!


Beginning in the second half of the 19th century, Japan began mass production of western candles made from paraffin. Most of the candles currently popular in Japan, the main raw material is to maintain the characteristics of paraffin!



American candle history


In the American continent, the laurel fruit wax extracted from the fruit of the arbutus wax (Omeldew) is called the high-grade candle material.


Since the 17th century, the use of fragrant laurel candles with aroma and less fumes has been used as a lighting tool. However, in the 19th century, the lighting of refined oil and natural gas lamps began to prevail, and the use of candles began to decrease. Moreover, as a new material for candles, cheap paraffin from petroleum began to be supplied in large quantities.




British candle history


In the 19th century, paraffin wax was discovered, marking the beginning of a new era of candle making.


In the 1850s, wax candles were made in the UK. Since then, Europe and the United States have also begun production. Slowly, the candle made with a variety of waxes began to be made from paraffin.


Modern candle


Since the invention of the electric light, the night is no longer dim and it begins to brighten up. Because of this, the candle's long-standing mission has finally ushered in the end.


But now, the demand for candles is growing. It is not only used as lighting, but also used as a symbol of congratulations, a comfortable item, or as a decoration, its use and role are more and more extensive.
