A handmade candle can be the perfect gift idea to bring in any holiday season, a romantic gift for a girlfriend or wife, or even an attractive gesture to make someone smile. But how do you know that you are getting a candle which is hand-crafted by a real human?
Manufacturers of handmade candles will insist that their products are truly hand made. The wick is wrapped using natural materials and wax is poured into molds made from clay, terracotta or straw. When it is ready, the candles are rolled out and placed in molds and allowed to harden.

Traditionally candles were lit by hand, but there are some companies who use electronic devices to help with the process of lighting.
Candles have been used for many thousands of years as aromatherapy agents. Ancient Greeks and Romans used them to help relieve coughs and colds, as well as headaches, insomnia, stress and even depression. In Europe, candles were a mainstay for weddings and could be bought in shops where only the bride and groom sat on the day of the event.
In the Middle Ages candles were used for religious purposes, such as in homes of the Catholic Church. They were also used as a source of light for when no electricity was available. They were not widely used in the United States until the 1800's, but candles became popular in the south and in some areas of North America. They began showing up in stores selling groceries.
Handmade candles are available in many shapes and colors and they are made from different fragrances, but they generally look similar to the same products you would find in a supermarket. However, if you ask the store clerk for advice, he or she will tell you that the most common scents are vanilla, peppermint, cinnamon and clove oil. and the most popular colors are white, yellow, orange, yellow and red.
Handmade candles have been a popular item for many years and many people prefer the look of them, especially if they are given as a wedding gift. If you choose the correct type of handmade candle for a gift, it is likely to be a lifelong keepsake.

If you prefer, you can choose a fragrance that is a combination of several of the scents that you like. For example, if you prefer the scent of fresh cut grass, then you can choose scented gums that are in the form of leaves or a type of gum.
Handmade candles do not cost much. You can buy one, fill it with gel, put some flowers inside and light it can last for several years. They are an excellent idea for decorating small rooms because the scent will linger and will never be out of fashion.
It is a wonderful idea to have a few candles in your home and to use them on special occasions, such as during a birthday or wedding, but you should keep some candles in your cupboard for everyday uses. Some candles may smell better than others. If you use the same scent on your home candles, then you won't have the problem of having to change them every couple of months.
When you go shopping for candles, remember that handmade candles are not as expensive as other types, so you might want to get several and give them away as gifts.
