Candles have been used to light man's way for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians created the first candle, by dipping the core of reeds into animal fat which created a glorius flame. It was the ancient Romans who stumbled accross the first 'wicked' candle, they did this by rolling papyrus in melted beeswax and then setting it alight. The resulting candles were used to light darkness, aid travellers at night and were used in religious ceremonies. Even now, thousands of years later, we use candles in celebrations or just as a way of relaxing. A pillar candle lit in the bathroom whilst having a soak is a wonderful way of letting go of the day's troubles. A scented candle helps set the mood, for example, rose scented candles induce a feeling of calm and romance.
