Candle Making Safety Tips

Preventing accidents:

  • Make your candles in an area with lots of space to spread out and with your equipment easily within reach.
  • Keep children and pets away from your candle making area including heat source and anything having to do with hot wax.
  • Always keep a large box of baking soda on hand in case of small fires during your candle making.
  • Never put wax in a pot directly onto your heat source. Always use a double boiler to prevent the wax from getting too hot and possibly catching on fire!!
  • Be sure to clean up all wax debris around the burner after you have finished.
  • If your wax does catch on fire:

    • Turn off the heat source immediately.
    • Cover the flames with a metal lid or a damp cloth or some baking soda.
    • Never attempt to put out the fire with water!
