Brief History of Candles

Originating in China about 200 BC, the earliest candles were made from whale fat. Appearing in Europe after 400 AD there candles were made from fats like tallow and wax with tallow being the most popular by the Middle Ages. Candle making had become a guild craft in France and England in the 13th century. Candle makers selling their candles or the chandlers, as they were called, went from house to house using kitchen fats the house kept aside for the purpose of making candles for the home. Chandlers also sold their own candles in their shops.
