Bukhoor, Incense and Candle Safety

Bukhoor

These can help create a nice atmosphere and discard bad smells in your home but they can be a fire hazard. Therefore it is important that you follow our safety tips.

  • Never leave, Bukhoor, incense or candles unattended.
  • Always use a holder or a burner
  • Burners and holders should always be put on a flat, non-flammable surface and away from windows.
  • Keep Bukhoor, incense or candles out of reach of children.
  • As with cooking keep you clothing out of the way of the flames.
  • When you have finished with an incense stick douse the tip in water and break it off. The remainder can then be relit later.
