Wax is the fuel source for candles.
Since candles use flame to burn wax, it is important to follow safety rules.
Wait until wax is solid before handling or moving candles.
Extinguishing wax-fueled fires: As with any grease fire, extinguish by smothering. Never add water to hot or burning wax.
Keep candles away from combustibles and heat sources, such as stoves or heaters.
Never add anything to candle wax.
