Are Wax Melts Safer Than Candles?
Wax melts are safer than candles because they remove the potential of a fire. “Annually, an estimated 23,600 fires in residences are caused by candles,” according to a Federal Emergency Management Agency report. Candles can be knocked over, which may leads to huge fires.
While there are warmers that require a tea light, there also are some on the market that don’t require any kind of flame. To set a romantic mood this Valentine’s Day, grab a flameless warmer and a pack of wax melts to ensure the only spark you’ll be focused on is the one in the bedroom.
