Section 6. EMBEDS
It is critically important that only non-flammable
items be used as decorative embeds in gel candles! Items such as
seashells, glass figures or marbles, sea glass, stones, ceramic figures
and wax embeds are fine in gel candles. Items such as cinnamon sticks,
silk flowers, plastic figures, some resin figures, potpourri, dried fruit,
etc. are NOT safe to put in gel candles!
Another safety method is "double glassing". This involves using a large container (such as a fish bowl) and placing a smaller clear glass container inside (such as a standard 3 oz. straight sided votive glass). Place your decorative embed items or beach scene in the outer bowl around the votive glass, and fill with clear unscented gel. Wick the inner glass and fill that with your scented gel. The inner glass keeps the candle contained and keeps the flame from ever coming in contact with the decorative embeds, thus making a safe and refillable candle! Customers can bring these back for refills, or you can make pre-scented gel chunks and package them in a baggy with a wick and sell as do-it-yourself refills!
