Safety Information

Luxury Candles in the home are getting a more and more popular way to add relaxation to our homes. Luxury candles are very safe in your home if you follow some simple safety information.


The Do’s and Dont’s

  • Burn the luxury candle for no more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Trim the wick to 12mm before each use as this will help prevent soot and extend the life of the candle.
  • Use a candle plate to protect surfaces. Never put a candle directly on a surface that is flammable or could become damaged by heat or oil.
  • Always put candles on a heat resistant surface. TVs are not fire-resistant objects.
  • The Luxury Candle needs to be stable, so it won’t fall over.
  • Position them away from curtains. Don’t put candles near curtains or other fabrics – or furniture. And keep them out of draughts.
  • Don’t put them under shelves. It’s easy to forget that there’s a lot of heat above a burning candle. If you put it under a shelf or other surface then it can burn the surface. Make sure there’s at least three feet (one metre) between a candle and any surface above it.
  • Keep clothes and hair 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 children and pets away. Candles should be out of reach of children and pets.
  • Keep candles apart. Leave at least four inches (10cm) between two burning candles.
  • Take care with votive or scented candles. These kinds of candles turn to liquid to release their fragrance.
  • Don’t move them when they’re burning. Extinguish candles before moving them. Also, don’t let anything fall into the hot wax like match sticks.
  • Don’t leave them burning. Extinguish candles before you leave a room. 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, which can send sparks and hot wax flying.
  • Double-check they’re out. Candles that have been put out can go on smouldering and start a fire. Make sure they’re completely out.
