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 possible self-forming, harmful emissions
and 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.
