Utilized for light illumination before electricity began to be employed; candles are no longer necessary unless there’s a need for emergency lighting. Yet, evidently candles have long been more significant to people than just as a source of heat and light.
Nowadays mostly used for creating an ambiance, for aromatherapy or as mentioned above, for emergency lighting or religious purposes, candles are made with a host of innovative wax blends, different wicks, with or without perfumed oils, design or decorative elements, whether on the candle itself or as accessories. Singing or trick candles used for children parties are a fun example to illustrate this point. But there are some exquisite handcrafted candles as well for collectors or enthusiasts who like to unwind in a room lit with soft flickering flames held in a pretty glass jar.
