Candle Safety

Candle making is not a dangerous craft it can be very Messy but most definitely… not dangerous, but Just a few common-sense rules
are needed

areas of danger in candle making are


Dealing with wax - both in terms of fires, and in terms of burns

Using fragrance and/or essential oils which can be irritants or even toxic in concentrated amounts

Accidents, spills and such

..................................................................................................................................

A few things we need to think about when making and using Candles in the home

Never leave burning candles unattended.

Burn candles on a level, protected surface.

Keep flammable materials well away from a burning candle... don't forget the drapes!

Keep burning candles away from open windows or drafty areas.

Always use a candle holder.

Do not place candles in high traffic areas where they can be knocked over easily.

Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning.

Keep matches or lighters out of the reach of children.

Make sure your house is equipped with a smoke alarm.

Some decorative items with candles are meant to be decorative only.

Blowing wax can cause wax spatter and move the wick out of position.

It is preferrable to extinguish a wick with a wick snuffer.

If you need to leave the room, just turn the burner off and make sure that nothing (or no one) will upset things.

Treat wax with respect.it can burn you very quickly.

Melt your wax properly in a double boiler

Make sure you have an accurate thermomter nearby to keep a eye on the temperature of your wax

Measure and pour essential or fragrance oils carefully. They are very concentrated and many will eat through plastics,
cause stains, and/or cause irritation on skin. Wipe up any drips immediately and wash your hands if
you get them on your skin.

measure all essential or fragrance oils ahead of time so that they're ready to pour

be sure that they can't easily be knocked over or spilled while you're working.

Be sure you understand the safety requirements of the fragrances and/or essential oils you are using and be sure
you have a good understanding of essential oil safety.

Be careful with dyes and colors. Dyes, especially liquid dyes, while not toxic, can stain things quickly and powerfully.
One or two drops of liquid candle dye can color a pound of wax.

Keep a bucket or sink full of cold water close by. If you get some hot wax on your skin,

dunk the affected area immediately into the water and leave it there until the candle wax has cooled completely .

THIS WATER IS NOT TO BE USED ON A CANDLE WAX FIRE.


If it is a small minor burn you can then peel off the wax.

If it is a more serious second or third degree burn (blistering or charring),

after dunking, leave the wax on and call your doctor or go to the hospital.

But most of all enjoy your hobbies
