Beeswax candles in the Middle Ages

History of a beewax candle is very long, reaching even up to year 3000 BC. However, it is worth underlining that ways of producing it were changing in the course of time. Up till the Middle Ages, people used a tallow - an animal fat. Later, it started to be gradually replaced with beeswax candles, having indisputable advantages.

Medieval candles of this type were much more friendly for surroundings.| They don't produce smoke and bad smell caused by fat burning. In comparison, the smell of beeswax candles is slightly sweet and much more likable.

Thus, medieval candles from beeswax were perfect to use in closed spaces. These were also extremely popular in churches. As beeswax was relatively expensive in the past, the average homestead rather stayed with cheaper solutions.
