The Top 10 Benefits of an Aroma Candle for Your Home
Benefits of an Aroma Candle
The candle has evolved from a simple light source to an ornamental accent that has many uses and benefits over time. Over 5,000 years ago mankind used candles to illuminate celebrations and as a light source. Yet we know very little about their origin.
Ancient Egyptians, according to legend, were the first to use candles when they created rush lights, or torches, from soaking reed pith in melted animal fat; but these torches did not have a wick like a candle. A source for this information is the National Candle Association.
During the 19th century, a significant number of technological developments impacted candle making today. For example, chemists discovered how to separate and refine wax from petroleum in the 1850s, resulting in paraffin wax.
The candle-making industry began to decline after electricity was invented and the lightbulb introduced in 1879. Despite candles no longer being man's primary source of light, they have become increasingly popular and useful: candles symbolize celebration, romance, and farewell, define ceremony and enhance home decor. Adding light to any environment instantly changes its ambiance without adding harshness from an electric light bulb. It is relaxing and warm when candles flicker in front of you.
