History Of Roman Candles

Despite the name, Roman Candles, like most fireworks, originated in China. The history behind the name ‘Roman Candle’ is a rather unpleasant one. This is because, much like the Catherine Wheel, the Roman Candle is named after an ancient torture device used in the Roman Empire under the emperor Nero.

 

How To Use Roman Candles

Of course, the first thing we recommend is to read the instructions carefully as you should be following them closely to ensure your Roman Candles get the desired effect. Make sure your Roman Candle is pointing towards the sky as the stars they emit can ignite things if they land before going out. When you light the Roman Candle, make sure you back away quickly and let it fully burn out before attempting to go near it. Most importantly, make sure you do not light a Roman Candle in an area where there are things that could easily catch on fire, a wide-open space is preferable.

 

Powerful Roman Candles

All of our Roman Candles for sale are highly powerful fireworks. The fireworks are ignited from the top of the firework and are created from the chemical compound of bentonite, black powder, lifting charge, pyrotechnic star and delay charge. Due to Roman Candles being lighted from the top, the firework requires to be pointed away from people and directed towards the sky for safety precautions. Roman Candles fire both single and multiple shots via a tube, all options from our selection are sure to create a fantastic show.
