Introduction

Candles have accompanied mankind for more than 2 000 years serving, above all, as a light source. Closely

connected to the development history of the candle are the efforts made to improve its quality and its

safety in use. Discussions in the past and present over fires caused by unsafe candles and/or

inappropriate use during the burning of candles have led to consumers concern for these issues.

Most fire damage caused by candles can be attributed to improper use by the consumer. The fire risk of

the candle due to inappropriate use can be minimized by suitable safety information for the consumer.

This information will be easily and non-verbally comprehensible.
