Today we wanted to talk about candle safety. Many people do not see this as a serious issue, but many people have lost homes and lives from unsafe candle use.
First we will talk about where to burn your favorite candles. This includes jar candles, candle melts, and candles without containers. Anything involving fire and/or hot wax should be kept off the ground and at a safe height. We recommend candles and melts be kept high enough that children and pets can not reach them. Hot wax and fire could cause very serious injuries to loved ones and should never be something you should worry about having in the house. Decorative candle holders should always be sturdy and trusted not to fall causing accidents.
To extinguish a candle the best method is always to snuff out the flame with a snuffer. Blowing on a flame or using water can splatter hot wax or cause a flame flare up. A candle should always be put out before you leave a room unattended for a long period of time. If you need to leave a room a candle should never be carried to a new room. This can cause your hand to be burnt due to a hot jar or cause the hot wax inside to splash.
