General Rules for Candle Safety

  1. NEVER leave a candle, whilst burning, unattended
  2. Always follow manufacturer's instructions on the candles
  3. Don't place candles near curtains, or other fabrics - or furniture, any flammable objects in general. Also keep them away from drafts
  4. Always use an appropriate candle holder, designed for the candle you are burning
  5. Always burn candles on a heat resistant surface, as candle holders may become hot and damage furniture.
  6. Keep all burning candles away from children and pets
  7. Keep candles at least 4 inches (10 cm) apart
  8. Candles generate a lot of heat directly above them. Never place a burning candle under a shelf or other surface. Always make sure there is at least 3 feet (one metre) between a candle and the surface above it.
  9. Never place a candle somewhere you will have to lean over it. You don't want to set your clothes or hair on fire
  10. Never place a burning candle or oil burner in a child's bedroom
  11. When extinguishing a candle always use a spoon or a snuffer. Blowing candles out can cause sparks and hot liquid wax to fly over your room
  12. Always double check candles are out
