📜 History of Scented Candle Day

Other cultures throughout the world employed wicked candles, according to evidence. The Chinese produced wicks out of wrapped rice paper and their wax from a mixture of insects and seeds or whale fat. The Japanese are reported to produce their candles using wax taken from tree nuts, and folks in India make wax by boiling cinnamon tree fruit. Most likely, these were the first scented candles. When burned, they gave off a nice smell.

With the development of the light bulb in 1879, candles lost their prominence as primarily an illuminating substance. Candles then became a decorative item, and scented candles were introduced initially. By the mid-1980s, candles were well-known as great gifts, items to decorate with, and ways to improve your mood.
