Most early Western cultures relied primarily on candles rendered from animal fat (tallow). A major improvement came in the Middle Ages, when beeswax candles were introduced in Europe. Unlike animal-based tallow, beeswax burned pure and cleanly, without producing a smoky flame.
Most early Western cultures relied primarily on candles rendered from animal fat (tallow). ... Beeswax candles were widely used for church ceremonies, but because they were expensive, few individuals other than the wealthy could afford to burn them in the home.
People also used fish oils, whale oil, caster oil, vegetable oils, ghee, paraffin, and oil from nuts, grains, and cheeses. The fuel was poured into the chamber. As long as the bottom end of the wick touched the fuel, the lamp would burn bright. Wicks were made from cotton, hemp, and linen.
