The Danger of Candle Fires
Candles are a great way to decorate your home or to add your favorite scent to the room, but they could also be a major fire hazard. Depending on where they are placed they can accidentally be knocked over. It’s also very easy to forget about lit candles if they are in rooms where you can’t keep an eye on them, which could then lead to a fire.
There are lots of candle alternatives in the market today that can help with your decorating and lighting needs for your home, and will help get rid of the risk of fire.
- Battery operated candles. There are so many different options out there with battery operated candles. They can range in sizes from tea lights to large pillar candles, come scented and non scented, flicker like a real candle, and some are even on timers to automatically turn on at the same time everyday. Battery operated candles also come in a variety of colors to fit all your decor needs.
- Candle warmers. Choose from electric bases or larger lamp-style models that are designed to accommodate traditional wax candles. These will warm the wax and help diffuse the fragrance without actually lighting the candle.
- Reed diffusers. Placing reeds in oil is a great way to spread a scent throughout your home without having to rely on an open flame or even a battery operated device
Candles are beautiful and can create such warmth and atmosphere to a home, but can also be very dangerous if not attended to properly. These candle alternatives are great for everyday use in common rooms like kitchens and bathrooms where candles are normally found.
