How a candle burns

clipped from

What sort of chemical reaction occurs when a candle burns?

When you light a candle, the heat of the flame melts the wax near the wick. This melted or liquid wax is then drawn up into the wick by capillary action. The flame's heat vaporizes the liquid wax to produce water vapor and carbon dioxide (the same byproducts that humans produce when exhaling).

Candle Usage

clipped from

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

Today, the candle is usually used for their aesthetic value, particularly to set a soft, warm, or romantic ambience, and for emergency lighting during electrical power failures.The Scented candle is common in aromatherapy.

History of Candle Making

clipped from

The candle was developed independently in many countries. The Egyptians and Cretans made the candle from beeswax, as early as 3000 BC. The early candle was made from various forms of natural fat, tallow, and wax. In the 18th century, spermaceti, an oil produced by the sperm whale, was used to produce a superior candle. Late in the 18th century, colza oil and rapeseed oil came into use as much cheaper substitutes. Paraffin was first distilled in 1830, and revolutionized candle-making, as it was an inexpensive material which produced a high-quality, odorless candle that burned reasonably cleanly. The industry was devastated soon after, however, by the distillation of kerosene (confusingly also called paraffin oil or just paraffin). This excellent fuel for lamps gave the candle its current status as a primarily decorative item.

Candle History

clipped from

A candle is a light source usually consisting of an internal wick that rises through the center of a column of solid fuel. Prior to the mid 19th century, the candle was made from tallow (a byproduct of beef fat rendering). The fuel now is nearly always some form of wax, with paraffin wax being the most common. Gel, soy, beeswax, and a vegetable-based candle is also available.A candle manufacturer is usually known as a chandler. Various devices have been invented to secure candles into place, from simple tabletop candle holders, to elaborate chandeliers.

The History of Candles

The history of candle making does not belong to any one country as it was developed independently in many countries. The Egyptians formed candles that were make out of beeswax as early as 3000 BC. The Chinese created candles from whale fat during the Qin Dynasty (221–206 BC). In early China and Japan, tapers were made with wax from insects and seeds, wrapped in paper. In India, wax from boiling cinnamon was used for temple candles. During the first century AD, indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest fused oil from the eulachon, or "candlefish", for illumination. Excavations at Pompeii, Italy, revealed several candelabra.

3000 - 1 BC

the clay candle holders in Egypt have been found dating back to 400 BC.
Qin Shi Huang (259–210 BC) was the first emperor of the Chinese Qin Dynasty (221–206 BC). His mausoleum, which was rediscovered in the 1990s twenty-two miles east of Xi'an, contained candles made from whale fat.
In early China and Japan, tapers were made in wax from insects and seeds, wrapped in paper[citation needed].
Wax from boiling cinnamon was used for temple candles in India.

1 AD - 1500 AD

There is a fish called the eulachon or "candlefish", a type of smelt which is found from Oregon to Alaska. During the first century AD, indigenous people from this region used oil from this fish for illumination. A simple candle could be made by putting the dried fish on a forked stick and then lighting it.
Excavations at Pompeii discovered several candelabra.
Yak butter was used for candles in Tibet.
In Europe, the earliest surviving candle was discovered near Avignon in France, from the first century AD

My daughter Chelsea is out of school for the summer so she has been working with me here in the store. Isn't it funny when you own a business your kids want to work anywhere but with you LOL... she asked me yesterday if I thought the Mexican Food restaurant next door would hire her since she is only 14.. I said.. "your Mom owns a store, why would you want to work there". I guess the newness has worn off. :) Her friends still think this is the coolest thing ever and would love to work here...they tell her all the time, "I would love to work at your Mom's store"!

I just finished pouring several Paradise Bay pillars for a customer.. the store smells awesome.. I just love this scent!

Have a scentsational day everyone, I'm headed back to work.
