In most cases, candles do not set off smoke alarms and although it is possible, it is also rare. Smoke alarms are designed to detect smoke from a fire, and the smoke from a single candle is not usually enough to set off an alarm.
The amount of smoke produced by candles can depend on several factors, including the type of wax used, the presence of fragrance oils, and the size of the flame. However, there are a few things that can increase the risk of a candle setting off a smoke alarm, including:
A Candle Chandler? - "a handmade maker and seller of tallow, wax candles, and also usually soap". A chandlery was originally the office in a wealthy medieval household responsible for wax, candles and soaps as well as the room in which the candles were kept.
We are a modern-day handmade candle chandler, hand pouring soy wax candles using traditional methods and skills but also other fragrance items such as reed diffusers, tealights and wax melts. Our eco-friendly candles are made from sustainable and renewable plant-based candle waxes which produce less smoke.
Located in Pembrokeshire Wales, our ethos is defined in the three words...
NATURAL TRADITIONAL HANDMADE.
We are a proud supporter of the Campaign for Wool, All Things Wales, Global Welsh and Red Dragon America.
