Don’t get caught up in the heat of the moment
While candles, oil burners and incense sticks can add to the romantic Valentine's Day atmosphere, it's important to use them safely to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Here are some tips to ensure you don’t get caught up in the heat of the moment this Valentine's Day:
- Place candles, incense sticks and oil burners on a heat resistance surface and away from curtains, fabrics or furniture
- Ensure candles, incense sticks and oil burners are put out when you're not at home
- Keep pets and children away from candles, especially when you're not in the room
- To put out candles, use a snuffer spoon. This is a safer way to put out than blowing them out as this could send sparks or hot wax flying
