8 Candle Safety Tips To Keep Your Home Safe

While we all love a good candle, they can be dangerous. Here are 8 ways you can be safer while burning candles.

While we all love a good candle, they do come with risks. Open flames can be a danger to you and your home. Your safety is important to us so here is our list of candle safety tips!

Candle safety tips:

  1. Always trim the wick to 1/4 inch before lighting to prevent the flame from getting too large. Trim wooden wicks to 1/8 inch.
  2. When setting the mood, but place candles out of the reach of pets and children. Fire and children/animals do not mix.
  3. Avoid drafts to keep candle flames burning evenly.
  4. Don't burn a candle all the way down to the bottom of the jar, especially when using a glass jar. This can make the glass shatter and no one wants to deal with glass all over the place. Stop burning your candle when wax reaches 1/2 inch.
  5. Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time!
  6. Keep candles away from anything that can catch fire, including books and papers, curtains, and clothes.
  7. When you leave a room (or go to sleep) extinguish all candles.
  8. If you're sensitive to scents, light scented candles in well-ventilated areas. Although you shouldn't have that issue with Chill, Babe Candle Co, we aren't headache inducing!
