Candle making was first developed in many places independently. Candles were used by the Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Indians. They were usually maid from beeswax in ancient times. After the invention of the light bulb, candles are marketed more as a decorative item. Candles are now commonly used to provide fragrance.
There are different types of wax used for candle making. The most common type of wax used for candle making is paraffin wax. It's versatile, inexpensive and widely available. If you are looking for a natural product, you can choose to use soy wax. However, soy wax is not very versatile as it's soft and pliable. Beeswax are naturally from bees and the natural infusion with honey gives this wax a naturally sweet aroma. However, beeswax is particularly expensive.
Another popular type of candle would be gel candle. Although gel is a mix of oils and resins, it can holds wicks, color and fragrances as well as the standard paraffin wax. The unique thing about gel wax is that it retains its translucent properties even after being coloured. Gel candle can burn as least twice as long as paraffin wax too!
