Wick trimmer and Dipper Set

This candle wick trimmer & dipper set is an ideal accessory for any home. The trimmer perfectly trims the wick to the ideal length of 6mm to promote a perfect burn. The best way to extinguish your candle is by gently pushing the burning wick into the hot wax pool with the dipper. This stylish set is made from stainless steel with gold plating. Displayed in an elegant gift box.

Best candle practices:

Trim the wick to 6mm for every burn after the initial lighting. The shorter wick encourages a brighter and more stable flame. A longer wick will cause smoking and mushrooming of the wick. Mushrooming is when the top of the wick forms a mushroom shape distorting the shape of the flame.

Avoid blowing your candle out and instead extinguish by simply dipping the wick into the hot wax pool with the dipper, then straighten it back up. This is the most efficient way to avoid smoking.
