Safety Tips For Burning Candles

There are a few simple rules you should follow whenever you want to burn a candle to ensure the safety of yourself and your family.

  1. Before you light your candle be sure that the wick is no longer than 1/4" high. You don't want to have a huge flame on your candle.
  2. Never burn a candle anywhere near flammable objects.
  3. Always burn your candle on a heat resistant, flat surface. Remember, it is possible for a container candle's container to break. Be sure its in an area where if this happens, it won't cause any damage.
  4. Never burn a candle for more than 4 hours at one time.
  5. Always keep candles away from children and pets!
  6. Always place a votive in a votive holder before burning it. Votives are formulated to liquify and the votive holder keeps the wax contained.
  7. Avoid moving a lit candle. Candles in containers will get very hot!
  8. Do not burn a candle in an area where there are drafts.
