Candles are light sources made from various types of wax and a wick made from fibrous substances. The burning of candles is due to the capillary effect, as wax from the candle is drawn up into the wick and burns with a yellow flame. About a quarter of the energy gained from a candle is in the form of heat, the rest being light. The wax in a candle can come from various sources such as paraffin wax, beeswax and other animal sources, or vegetable sources. Paraffin is the most widely used substance in candles.
