From the literature, the invention time of candles and oil lamps should not be far behind. Regarding the origin of the candle, "The Drifting Handcuffs" said: "The emperor sleeps at night, the dream rises to the sky, there is no day and tomorrow, the light shines, the shock, and the candle is still.
So two daughters were born, Ming Ming, candlelight. This mysterious interpretation has long been commonplace in the Chinese palace culture.
In fact, the candle should originate from the torch of the original era. The primitive people applied animal oil or beeswax to the bark or wood chips to make a torch for lighting.
It is also said that in the ancient times of the pre-Qin period, some people put the mugwort and reed into a bundle, and then put some grease on it for lighting. Later, someone wrapped a hollow reed with a cloth, and then poured wax on it. Ignite is the embryonic shape of today's candle.
