Candle Safety Advice

At Pure Luxury Candles, we want to ensure that all of our customers are safe when using our products.


We absolutely love the atmosphere of a burning candle. But we should remember that they are still a naked flame. So, when using one of our candles, always ensure you follow these simple safety guidelines:

  • Always keep a burning candle in sight

  • Ensure candles are fully extinguished when leaving a room and before going to sleep

  • Never burn candles on or near anything flammable (furniture, curtains, bedding etc)

  • Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets

  • Ensure that candles are placed on heat resistant surfaces

  • Do not burn a candle for longer than 3 hours

  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, ceiling fans and air currents

  • Always burn candles in a well ventilated area

  • Never touch or move a burning candle (or one that has recently been extinguished)

  • Do not burn a candle all the way to the bottom, leave at least 1cm of wax at the bottom

  • Do not light if the glass holder is damaged or cracked

  • Place burning candles at least 3 inches apart from one another

  • Always use a snuffer to extinguish a candle

  • Never extinguish candles with water or any other liquid

  • Be very careful if using candles during a power cut, torches are a safer source of light

  • If the flame becomes too high, extinguish the candle immediately. If this happens, leave to cool and trim the wick before re-lighting

  • Never use a candle as a night light

  • Never light a candle under a shelf or with items above it

  • Always double check that candles have been fully extinguished
