While you enjoy the aromatic scents of your candle, always remember to keep candles away from anything flammable and especially out of the reach of children and pets. If you need to leave the room, it is highly advisable for you to extinguish the candle. In addition, don’t leave a scented candle burning during meal times as it may alter our sense of taste and affect our appetite.
