  1. Very entertaining video! The owner of Dandles Candles gives a pretty good history of candles. I learned that back in England local Chandlers would go door to door collecting kitchen fat so they could make and supply candles. I also learned that candles today are a 2.2 plus billion dollar industry for something that isn’t even needed today for the use of light. People just want candles and really love them. Just like me!

    • It’s mind boggling to think about what big business the candle industry has become and from such humble beginnings!

  2. The man using the candle as a clock was really interesting. I still use candles as a light source it is really relaxing to take a bath and light a couple candles.

    • Very relaxing, indeed, Bonnie. I tend to burn more candles in the Fall/Winter, but I do burn them all year long.
