The Uses Candles

candle in candle holder

Before electricity became a normal household utility, the candle was the common source of lighting, before and in later addition to, the oil lamp. Due to the local cost of resources and availability, for several centuries up to the 19th century, the candle was more common in northern Europe and oil burners where more common in southern Europe and around the Mediterranean Sea. Candle makers were commonly known as chandlers.

The candle nowadays is more used for its aesthetic value, now used to set a soft, warm, or romantic ambience, and of course for emergency lighting when the power fails. The Scented candle is more commonly used in aromatherapy.
