Why trim your candle wick?

blog burn candle trim wick

hello again and i hope you enjoyed the last blog, my first blog ever!  

i'm passionate about candles and everything about them. i think there is nothing better when you burn a candle and it melts beautifully.  so the next few blogs i'm going to share with you a few hints and tips to get the best out of burning your candles :) 

people laugh at me when i say 'remember to trim your wick' and i guess before i started making them i didn't appreciate why so here is a few reasons why....

a trimmed wick makes for a clean and even burn

a trimmed wick makes the flame look clean and bright

a trimmed wick makes for a more controlled flame and produces less smoke 

you should trim your wick to approx 6mm or 1/4". to trim your wick you can use a pair of scissors, nail clippers or a wick trimmer before every time you light your candle.

i hope you've enjoyed reading this and you find it useful :-) 

lots of love from Miss C xoxo
