    How to Safely Extinguish Scented Candles

    Use a candle snuffer

    It is best to use a snuff device when extinguishing candles. The safest way is to use a special snuff tube to puff your nose so as not to accidentally knock down the candle and prevent the hot wax from splashing.

    Candle snuff starves the flame of oxygen to ensure that the oxygen is slowly extinguished without the wax splashing. This is the safest way to destroy candles without worrying about splashing or burning fingers on the candle wick.

    If you don’t have a snuff bottle, you can also use a metal spoon.

    Never extinguish candles with water.

    The mixture of cold water and hot wax will splash the wax everywhere and may cause burns. Cold water may also be dangerous to glass candle holders, because a sudden drop in temperature will cause the glass to break and may spill hot wax everywhere.

    Make sure the candle is completely extinguished

    Before leaving the room or falling asleep, check whether the candles are completely used up. Make sure the wick embers stop glowing.

    Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled down.

    Do not use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drops on the glass holder.

    Otherwise, it may scratch, become weak or cause the glass to break in future use.
