Why beeswax?

Candlemaking, an ancient tradition

Beeswax was used by the ancient Egyptians for candles and for sealing. It was one of the prized substances found in the rediscovered royal tombs. It has also been found in the remains of Viking ships and in the ruins of ancient Rome. Tallow was also used in candles by the Romans, though they also used beeswax for candles, which were superior in that they have a smokeless and cleaner burn.
