Help needed: Legal and Safety

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :)


So I really want to publically sell my candles now. Through etsy e.t.c. However everytime I try and sit down to sort out what I need I get scared off (I'm a worrier) because I don't want to do something wrong and then get sued.


I know I need public liability insurance (any advice on the best one to get is appreciated) 


And I know I need to add safety labels and CLP for the scents but there is so much conflicting info out there about this. How do I know what I legally need to put on the safety labels? On top of that I would need a safety label mini booklet on the bottom of my candles I think - 1 page for the general info and 2 for the ingredient/CLP? Where do I get this type printed?


Is there anything else I have missed?


I've always wanted to sell products like this and I really want to dive in and just do it but I feel I've picked a really difficult area and am scaring myself a bit. Any advice appreciated  :) x

Hi @ScienceCandles. It doesn't hurt to look at candles that you like or admire and duplicate what they do while adding your own flare to it. Why reinvent the wheel, so to speak, right?
