Candle Care Essentials
At Botanical, we always want to ensure your candle has the longest and cleanest burn possible. Now, we finally have the tools to ensure this happens.
We know you are probably sick of us always telling you to trim your wicks, but it is so incredibly important.
Our Candle Care Essentials pack contains a candle snuffer, wick dipper and wick trimmer and are the perfect gift for anyone... including yourself.
You should never blow out your candle for many reasons, but probably the most important reason is to avoid blowing wax everywhere. To use your candle snuffer, simply place the dome over the flame, but not into the wax. Keep the flame covered for a round 3-5 seconds and the flame should extinguish. Please note that once the candle snuffer is used, soot may form on the dome. This is completely normal and can easily be removed by wiping with paper towel once it has cooled down.
You may never have seen or even heard of a wick dipper, but we are here to tell you that this will change your life. You can use your wick dipper to extinguish your candle flame, by simply dipping the wick into the melted wax and straightening the wick again. By using this method you eliminate any smoke emitting from the wick. You can also use the wick dipper to straighten your candle wick should it become off centre during burning.
Now this tool is probably the most important of them all! Your wick needs to be trimmed to around 6mm before EVERY burn. This ensures your candles flame is never too large and ensures longevity of your candle. You should never trim your wick whilst it is lit or when it has just been extinguished. Wait for wax to cool completely, then trim again prior to burning.
