general safety, i swear Show more
It appears IKEA scented tealight candles melt to about 130-140 F, which makes them reasonably safe to touch briefly, or if some spills onto you. I've yet to try the cheaper unscented ones.

(This did in fact start from innocent wondering, but let me tell you that you end up with some interesting results if you try to search for it. And still nobody with actual numbers that I could find.)
