Now that you have purchased your candles, it is very important that you take care of them to get a clean burn, best burn time, and longest lasting fragrance that you can get out of them. Here is where you can get some accessories to make that happen.
Candle Swizzle Stick / The Wick Dipper
You can't have a cocktail without a swizzle stick. Well, I thought the same would go for our candles. Now we have the Candle Swizzle Stick/The Wick Dipper. These one of a kind, hand made dippers allows you to dip the wick into the melt pool to extinguish the flame. Why, you may ask??? For 2 reasons.
For one, the flame is put out immediately and as opposed to blowing out or snuffing out, it fully extinguishes the flame which eliminates smoke and soot, and that burning smell afterward. Secondly, it re-coats your wick in the wax which will add hours to your candle. BE SURE TO STAND YOUR WICK BACK UPRIGHT.
The Wick Trimmer
It is very important to trim your wick BEFORE each burn. Trimming the wicks will keep the candle burning without any black soot and it will give your candle a longer burn time. What happens when you do not trim the wicks properly? When a wick gets too long it cannot draw wax all the way up to the top of the wick. Therefore, the wick itself will start to burn. These trimmers will cut your candle wick to 1/4 before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.
