How To Make Candles At Home
Candle making dates back to 3000 BC. Until the early 1900s they were needed for artificial light. Now, though no longer a necessity, candles can still be found in most homes. Throughout history, candles have served as rich traditions in religious services for many faiths. Today, the candle is no longer the single source of light, but is commonly used for birthday celebrations, holidays, and as home decorations.
