Safe Scents makes the Best Scents!

Debbie Rodrigue

80% of all house fires are started from candles left burning.
The number one cause of burns in children is cooking/kitchen related,
candles are a close second (hot wax can give a child 2nd-3rd degree burns).
A lot of people don’t realize that they are wasting a lot of money on energy costs due to candle soot. The soot/smoke put out from candles will actually collect in your air filters, causing the air flow in your
home to be restricted AND causing you to have to replace your filters
more often, When that soot/smoke collects in the filters, when the
air kicks on it will actually blow the particles back into the air.
Candles cause an estimated 15,600 fires in residential structures, 150 deaths, 1,270 injuries, and $539 million in estimated direct property damage each year. * Over half (55%) of home candle fires start because the candle is too close to some combustible material.
* More candle fires (38%) begin in the bedroom than in any other room.
* Falling asleep is a factor in 12% of home candle fires and 26% of the associated deaths.
* Half of all civilian candle fire deaths occur between Midnight and 6am.
* December is the peak month for candle fires; Christmas is the peak day.
* Young children and older adults have the highest death risk from candle fires.
* The risk of a fatal candle fire appears higher when candles are used for light.

  1. This is a very scary message but after losing a loved one in a house fire I have to say I wish more people could see it. I'm really falling in love with Scentsy since Ulyssia introduced me too it. She also tells me they are coming to the uk. Great news. :D

  2. Great Blog Mother! Will have to copy this one when I get my Scentsy blog up and running!
