Product Safety!

We all love candles, luxury handmade wax melts and anything that generally smells nice, but here is some important information to ensure you do this safely.

When using your wax melt with a tealight burner please ensure that you use a standard 2-4 hour tealight. The 8 hour one are great for longevity but burn too hot, which will result in the wax becoming too hot and possibly burning.

What is CLP?

The CLP Regulation (Classification, Labelling & Packaging) is a European Union regulation that standardises the warnings that have to be clearly visable on all wax products. Candles and wax melts fall within the CLP regulations , so if you sell candles, wax melts, reed diffusers, room sprays and so on, you must be CLP compliant.

DO NOT BUY ANY WAX PRODUCTS THAT ARE NOT CLP COMPLIANT!! IT IS ILLEGAL TO SELL IN THE UK AND EUROPE WITHOUT CLP INFORMATION. 

Each of Perfectly Scented products are all CLP compliant, for everyone's safety!

How to use wax melt burners safely.
❗Check that it is a wax melt burner before using. (Some are oil burners, which are usually the smaller ones)
 
❗No tea lights with glitter in or any other product such as botanicals. (These can set a light when the fire from the wick touches them, biodegradable glitter, crystals and botanicals are fine to be use in wax melts as they do not touch the heat source.
 
❗Check your burner regularly for any cracks or damage. (Even the smallest cracks can cause fires)
 
❗Only use 2-4 hour tea lights and allow your wax to cool between burns. (NO 8 HOUR TEA LIGHTS)
 
❗DO NOT use sharp objects to remove the wax from your burner.
 
❗Do not overfill your burner.
 
❗NEVER add water to your burner.
 
❗Use with an unscented tea light.
 
❗NEVER ingest.
 
❗Keep away from children and pets.
 
❗Keep away from draughts.
 
❗NEVER leave a lit candle unattended.
 
❗Place on a heatproof surface away from Curtains and furnishings, walls and objects.
 
❗Burners get HOT! Do not move until it has completely cooled down.
 
❗ And make sure that your wax melt vendor's are fully insured and CLP compliant (I will create a post on this explaining the importance)
 
Stay safe everyone ❤
