The discovery of phosphorus, which burns with just a little heat, led to the invention of matches. The English scientist Robert Boyle scratched a coin mixed with sulfur and wood and set it on fire. This method is immediately flammable.
The first practical matches were invented by John Walker of England. If you rub the witches on the top of a match, it will ignite. In 1906, the International Medical Association halted the production of these matches. This is because the witchcraft used in these matches can injure people. It is not dangerous. When you use non-toxic red witches, you can create safe matches. The first safe matches were made in 1844 in Sweden.
