Before beginning wax play, be sure all parties agree on a safeword.
Most candles burn from 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit. Keeping the candle at a distance from the receiver’s body will help cool the wax before it touches them.
Harder, more expensive, colored, and scented candles burn at higher temperatures.
Low temperature candles are available specifically for wax play.
Be mindful of any allergies. Soy candles are common, and soy is an allergen to some. Also, the scents and colors in some candles can irritate some people. For best results, use a white, unscented Paraffin candle.
