Trimming your candle wick allows the flame to have a clearer and brighter burn.
When wick trimming, you should always extinguish the flame, let the candle come to room temperature, and trim the wick before relighting. Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times. It is suggested to trim the wick every 4 hours of burn time.
The longer the wick, the bigger the flame which not only does this produce soot, but it actually burns your candle at a faster rate than normal therefore making your candle’s life cycle shorter.
Practice safe candle care!
