According to the National Fire Protection Association, about 8,200 home fires are caused by candles each year. As such it is important to take the extra precautionary measures to prevent accidents and promote candle safety. One of these preventive measures are the use of candle safety warnings.
Candle warning labels mostly contain the three key rules to candle safety:

● Burn Within Sight
Often, these key rules also have accompanying symbols to represent them. Look at these symbols below.
Aside from these key rules, candle safety warnings may also have instructions on how to burn the candle listed on it. In Stone Candles, burning instructions include advising to trim ¼ of the wick before burning and burning the candle at 4-hour intervals only. Some candle warning labels also list down the ingredients of the candle, like what type of wax was used and what fragrances are in it.
