Hi scent lovers, hope everyone is doing well. I just wanted to share a very important candle tip to all my candle lovers. Did you know that you should be trimming your candle wicks on a regular basis?
Yes, absolutely! After every re-lighting of your candle, trim your candle wick with a wick trimmer, scissors, or pair of new toenail clippers. No used toenail clippers please, lol!. Trim your wick down to at least 1/4" or down to a maximum of 1/8".
Why you may ask? It serves several purposes:
- it keeps the flame height low
- allows for a cleaner burn
- decreases burn rate
- increases available burn hours
There you have it, wick trimming is an essential part of candle burning. It is an important part of candle safety and it effects the burning quality of the candle. Until next time...
