Scented Candles, Wax Melts and Tarts Safety and Care
CANDLE / MELTS SAFETY
Please follow these safety rules below to ensure safe and trouble free scented wax use.
Always burn candles or use wax warmers on a heat resistant surface.
Always burn candles or use wax warmers within sight and never leave unattended.
Never burn candles or use wax warmers within the reach of children or where pets can come close to the candle.
Use only in well ventilated low heat oil burners without a lid.
NEVER add any water or other liquid.
Never heat on a stove or electrical appliance where temperatures would exceed 190 degrees F.
Melt enough of the product to have 1/2 inch wax in the pot.
NOT SUITABLE FOR CONSUMPTION
The body of wax warmers will become hot during use. Never touch a burning warmer.
Be especially careful with night lights and tea lights, which get hot enough to melt plastic.
TVs are not fire-resistant objects.
Keep your candles away from flammable surfaces. Don’t put candles near curtains, fabrics, furniture or near anything flammable.
Keep all candles away from draughts. Draughts can cause the flame to spark and may ignite nearby objects.
Don’t put candles under shelves. It’s easy to forget that there’s a lot of heat above a burning candle. If you put your candle under a shelf or other surface then it can burn the surface above. Make sure there’s at least three feet (one meter) between a candle and any surface above it.
Keep clothes and hair safely away. If there’s any chance you could lean across a candle and forget it’s there, put it somewhere else. You don’t want to set fire to your clothes or your hair.
Keep candles apart. Leave at least four inches (10cm) between two burning candles.
Never move candles when they’re burning. Extinguish candles and leave to cool completely before moving them.
Keep candles or wax warmers clean. Don’t let anything fall into the hot wax like match sticks or wick trimmings.
Never go to sleep with a candle still burning. And never leave a burning candle or oil burner in a child’s bedroom.
Use a snuffer or a spoon to put them out. It’s safer than blowing them out, which can send sparks and hot wax flying.
Double-check candles are extinguished. Candles that have been put out can go on smouldering and start a fire. Make sure they’re completely out.
