Wax in Light Burners – Day 2

Use safety first!

Use safety first!

Yesterday we talked about adding fragrance oils to your wax burner. But what about essential oils? We do not recommend using essential oils in wax light burners. Using essential oils in this application is actually quite dangerous. Allow me to explain why.

Essential oils are very volatile and because they are also very potent we feel that burning in a light burner or candle is not advised. It is too easy to fill the room with irritating vapors that burn eyes, nose and throat. We would far rather you make a room freshener that is over salt, in clay or some other carrier where you can place a few drops of your favorite essential oils.

Room fresheners are a safer use of these potent oils. If you would like some inspiration for making beautiful salt potpourris or even ones where rose petals and salt have been mixed, click on the links.  They are very beautiful and you don’t need to worry about a fire hazard or irritation of the eyes, nose and throat.

Please make sure that whether you are using fragrance oils in wax or essential oils in an un-heated carrier (or either in a potpourri) that you keep the finished product out of the reach of children and pets.

Safety first!!
