Candle Safety

Important Candle Safety Information


Candles are wonderful things, just make sure you place them carefully. Ensure they are well away from other objects, and remember to put them out properly.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Always keep candles out of reach of children and pets.
  • Remove all packaging before lighting the candle.
  • Don’t move the candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Containers (especially tins) can become very hot during and after a long burning period.
  • Keep candles away from drafts, vents and flammable objects.
  • Keep wicks trimmed to avoid dark smoke.
  • Always place candles on a firm, stable and heat resistant base.
  • Don’t burn a candle completely. Dispose it with around an inch spare.
