Candles are used for a number of reasons. Scented pillars can be used in aromatherapy sessions, while floating votives can be used to set a romantic ambiance. Wax sticks can be used in chandeliers to light up a room, while oil lamps can provide light in the harshest of situations. Before electricity, the only light available at night was either from the moon or from candles. Each civilization developed the wax creations in their own way. Historically, candles were made from the fat of various animals or from bees. The wicks were made from rice paper and various other materials before cord became the wick of choice. Candles now come in all shapes, sizes and colors. While previously made of fat, these creations are now made of paraffin, soybean or a flammable gel. Smaller versions, like tea lights, are often found only in white, but you can make tall pillars, sticks or even birthday candles to be any color. Some products are held within large jars and are often scented for the enjoyment of the customer. You can often find supplies to make your own products at wholesale costs, especially if you own a shop of some type. Already made products, like tapered soy sticks or votive holders, can also be found in bulk at wholesale prices, though pre-made may not be as high a quality as what you may create yourself. Be sure to exercise caution when working with flammable materials. Candles can be a sever fire hazard when left unattended, so be sure to always distinguish a candle before leaving the room.
