Do you know the source of the candle?


Candles originated from torches in the primitive era. Primitives coated things like fat or wax on tree bark or wood chips and bundled them together to make lighting torches. The beeswax, which appeared around the 3rd century BC, may be the rudimentary form of candles seen today. In the West, bees were kept in monasteries for self-made beeswax for a period of time.


This was mainly because the Catholics regarded beeswax as a symbol of virgin birth, so they regarded beeswax as a pure light and worshipped on the altar of the church . From the existing literature, beeswax was produced in China at about the same time as the West, and Japan was introduced from China during the Nara period (710-784).
