Candles are an ancient tool, used by mankind for over 5,000 years. But despite their longstanding use, we know very little about their origin. It has been written that the very first candles were created by the Ancient Egyptians, who used torches made by soaking reed cores in melted animal fat. However, there wasn’t a wick like we have in true candles.
