A candle wax burner can add a sense of style and design to the home, all while creating lovely aromas, but are they really safe? Contrary to popular belief, these products can be very safe and there are a few common-sense tips that anyone can use to prioritize safety while using their burner. Placement is everything. For maximum safety and to project the scent further, these devices shouldn’t be used in small enclosed spaces or near curtains or other objects that could catch fire as a result. Do not put on an unsteady area or on the edge of a stand or table. This can lead to tipping over. The surface used is just as important as the placement. The burner should only be left on heat resistant surfaces that will not overheat. Taking a few minutes to complete these steps will help ensure safe use of the burner.
