Candle with Care

25 Comments

 

Every year, thousands of home structure fires are started by candles. These fires can result in civilian deaths and injuries and millions of dollars in direct property loss. Candles may be pretty to look at but they are a cause of home fires — and home fire deaths. Remember, a candle is an open flame, which means that it can easily ignite anything that can burn.

 

Safety Tips

 

 

Candle with Care

  • Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep.
  • Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn.

If you do burn candles, make sure that you...

  • Use candle holders that are sturdy, and won’t tip over easily.
  • Put candle holders on a sturdy, uncluttered surface.
  • Light candles carefully. Keep your hair and any loose clothing away from the flame.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down — put it out before it gets too close to the holder or container.
  • Never use a candle if oxygen is used in the home.
  • Have flashlights and battery-powered lighting ready to use during a power outage. Never use candles.

I already gave up on ever getting cured of HSV2 because I have try many treatment none of them work out for me I have be to different hospital they always tell me same thing there is no cure for herpes when i came across a post about Dr momoh, in the net from a lady called Rebecca I contacted him and he reassured me with his herbal medicine which I took according to the way he instructed, that how i was cured. I doubted at first because I have been to a whole lot of reputable doctors, tried a lot of medicines but none was able to cure me. so I decided to listen to him and he commenced treatment, and under two weeks I was totally free from Herpes. I want to say a very big thank you to DR momoh for what he has done in my life. feel free to leave him a message on email dr.momoh9@gmail.com and also WhatsApp him +2347083724098.. or visit his website https://drmomohherbaltreatment.wordpress.com.

Its hard to find a genuine Herbalist These days , because there are so many Of them flaunting and parading themselves to be Herbal Practitioners. This made me Succumb to the fact that i will never be cured of Herpes Virus 2 , which i have been battling since August 16 2018. I became a loner, Afraid of dying as well. Earlier this Year 2021 i came to find out about numerous testimonies Recommending a Certain Herbalist , Who goes by the name of RAZOR. I ignored because i never believed in Them. I finally decided to reach out to him when a distant Nephew of mine, Whom i never told or knew i had herpes Virus 2, Got cured From Epilepsy And Sickle cell, I thought at once he might be of help . so i contacted him and i can tell you today that i have been very proud with my self for making the move to contact him, I finally got cured of herpes virus 2 with the Herbal medicine Herbalist Razor Sent to me.

The United States government spends $158 million dollars a year towards research in finding a cure for infection & diseases like tremor, anxiety&depression, psoriasis, shingles, eczema, urethra wart, chronic problems. Herpes, Cancer, Als,Hepatitis, Diabetes, HPV,Infections,ulcer,respiratory obstruction ETCThey don’t want a cure because there’s no profit in it for them and the pharmaceutical industry let truth be told please, that's more reason why I venture into herbal treatment, and I was able to cure myself from diseases that they said were incurable medically .Sometimes you don't always have to give up on everything you do and let someone else decide your fate .Dr ogbekhilu herbs are very essential and it has the potential to cure the so-called incurable.His contacts are always active.

I have been searching on the internet for a cure for my herpes right from the day I discovered I had the infection. October last year when I almost gave up, I stumbled upon a post on the internet where I copied the email of a man named Dr Festus who provides herbal solutions to diseases. I contacted him and got to an agreement with him and he sent me herbal remedy through the united parcel service alongside instruction on how to use it. To my greatest surprise, I got healed after 18 days of using the remedy as assured by the doctor. I decided to share this because I know that there are lots of people out there that need help. contact the doctor via his Email: drfestusfastherbalcure@gmail.com Contact him for remedy for infection like{1}HIV And AIDS{2}Diabetes{3}Epilepsy{4} Blood Cancer{5} HPV{6} ALS{7}herpes {8}kidney failure {9} autism{10} infertility.....

Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection cant cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of herpes, HIV, Diabetics etc by Dr. Rama herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with HSV for the past 7 years but Dr. Rama cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes and they were cured too. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he cast spells to restore broken marriages and a good luck spells to prosper and excel in life. Contact Dr. Rama on: drramaquickspellcaster@gmail.com Phone/Whatsap no: +2348050971779
