Tea Light Holders & Candle Holders Product Guide
Are they safe?
Safety is very important to us, to find out more about our Candle and Oil Burner Safety recommendations click here.
Since burning candles involve heat and a flame there are some potential safety issues. When burnt correctly there's no reason why they should be unsafe, but you should provide safety instructions when selling these products. These are provided with the candles and tealight holders that we sell. A burning candle should never be left unattended, and care should be taken with hot wax.
What candles can I use for my candle holders?
Many of our wholesale products are tealight or votive holders, and these fit a standard tealight candle. Bigger candles will not fit safely into the holder area and will give off too much heat to use the holders safely.
Can I use them with other items?
No – they are used for burning candles and tealights, and shouldn't be used for burning other materials like fragrance oils, wax melts, granules or tarts.
What are they made of?
All our candle holders are made from a variety of materials and finishes with glass, metal and resin products available.
How hot will a candle holder get?
Metal tealight holders can get very hot, due to the heat-conductive properties of metal. Glass holders may also become hot. Our ceramic holders are more insulating so should remain cooler. It's always best to allow the candle and holder to cool completely before handling or moving them. All candles and holders should be placed on a heatproof surface when burning, to prevent heat damage to unprotected surfaces.
Do I need to issue any safety guidelines when I sell this product?
Yes. Each candle and holder comes with safety information for the use which should be read in full before the product is used. These should be issued to the customer when you sell the product.
Safety Directions: Never leave a burning candle unattended and always place the candle holder on a suitable, flat, non-flammable surface away from drafts. Always allow the product to cool fully before handling after use.
What kind of retailers stock these products?
Our wholesale candle holders include simple traditional styles suitable for any homewares stockists, through a selection of themed items
Do I need to have any special certifications to sell candles and tealight holders?
How do I clean my candle holder?
Make sure no foreign objects fall into the candle or holder as this could make it unsafe. It’s a good idea to wipe your holders with a soft damp cloth after each use to avoid sooty residue. You should remove any build-up of excess dried wax after the candle has been extinguished, to ensure the surface remains flat and stable for the next use.
Can I use the candle holders outside?
Some of our candle holders are suitable for temporary outside use during the summer months, but they should not be left outside for long periods as they may be subject to weathering from the elements.
