Place a tealight in a hot plate or warming stove with holes for ventilation. A candle needs oxygen to burn. Without it the candle will go out. Moreover, without ventilation, the heat in the hot plate or warming stove may increase.

Be careful. The product will get hot, don't touch it!

Do not place a burnt match or other materials in the candle wax. It may cause a second flame which will result in the candle burning in the incorrect way.

Place a candle on a non flammable coaster or in a heat resistant holder. And always make sure that the candle is placed in on a level surface and cannot fall over.

Make sure that the side of a pillar candle does not get too high. Trim the edge if it gets higher than 1 cm.

Place a candle straight up. A leaning candle will always drip and smoke.

Never place a burning candle near curtains or other flammable objects. It is open fire, therefore caution is always necessary.

Do not place candles in a draught. A candle placed in a draught will always smoke and drip.

Do not place a burning candle close to a heat source such as sunlight, a heater or a fireplace. Candles which are placed too close a to heat source may drip.
