Keeping your wicks trimmed is key to a cleaner burn with less smoky residue.

 

Use this matte black wick trimmer to properly prune wicks before lighting your candles.

 

The recommended wick length for our scented candles is 1/4 of an inch.

 

Snip away at the wick and then light your candle.

 

A great candle experience begins with proper candle care and maintenance. Sure - you can ignore all the care tips and your candle will still burn but not optimally…and…you’ll notice it.

  • ANSWER: All of these problems can be answered by trimming your wicks

Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times. It is suggested to trim the wick every 4 hours of burn time. When wick trimming, you should always extinguish the flame, let the candle come to room temperature, and trim the wick before relighting. I simply trim my wick before lighting each time.

There’s even a special tool to help trim your wicks with ease to the appropriate length with a nice clean cut called a wick trimmer. I know some of you use your fingers to pluck the big mushroom part off your wick. DON’T. There’s a chance you could break the wick off too close to the wax making it impossible to relight your wick. I know some of you will just use scissors. I wouldn’t recommend that either.
