Bring elegance and care to candle care with this elegant all-in-one set. Featuring wick-trimming scissors and a hinged candle snuffer to eliminate smoke when extinguishing, plus an effective wick trimmer that helps extend its life by cutting back flame before each use, this chic tabletop accessory comes packaged in an elegant hand-lettered bag for convenient storage.
Properly trimming a candle’s wick is one of the best ways to extend its life, ensure a healthy flame height, and ensure an even burn. Our Gold Wick Trimmer should be on every candle lover’s must-have list! Explicitly designed to handle this task with its foot designed specifically to catch trimmings (something regular scissors cannot do!), our long scissor-like tool offers precision with every trim!
To use your wick trimmer effectively, pull down on its handles to cut the wick at an angle to the left position. This will reduce the risk of it igniting too quickly or falling into wax pools where it could relight again; also, using one is much simpler than reaching inside a candle container with scissors or fingers (Note: do not attempt to trim while burning!)
Cordelia Smith, founder and creative director at Formulary 55, believes trimmed wicks promote clean burns while prolonging candle lifespan. To do this, she advises cutting each candle’s wick to a 1/4″ length before each use to prevent tunneling – where an overly lengthy wick heats up above its wax pool, creating soot or smoke emissions from above it.
The foot of a wick trimmer can also help extinguish burning candles quickly and safely. Push the wick into the melted wax to eliminate smokiness, then allow the candle to fully cool before eradicating it. Doing this helps avoid mushrooming effects – whereby wicks become unruly as they absorb all the wax around them, ruining their aesthetic appearance.
This chic matte black stainless steel kit includes a wick trimmer and dipper to complement its modern aesthetic, creating an eye-catching centerpiece on any counter! Perfect as a present or for yourself. Please be mindful when using candle wick cutters; their sharp blades should always be kept out of reach of children and pets for safe usage; these tools do not replace proper candle safety practices.
Wick snuffers are indispensable tools in a candle care kit. These metal, bell-shaped devices are used to quickly extinguish candles when dropped onto their flame and closed or for trimming and eliminating debris on their surface.
A candle snuffer is easy and safe; anyone can operate one. A snuffer can help reduce wax splatter on tables and walls and excess soot from blowing out candles, plus help preserve their aroma as blowing can disturb molecules that contribute to its scent.
Snuffers come in various styles and materials, from metal designs to elegant glass or porcelain ones. Snuffers make an eye-catching addition to your table and would make an excellent present for candle enthusiasts.
Christopher Pinchbeck invented the original candle snuffer in 1776 in England, becoming an accomplished inventor known for creating numerous innovative devices such as spring-loaded improved candles and automatic clocks. Pinchbeck’s original snuffers resembled scissors with raised bowls at either end to cut wicks before being stored inside an attached box beneath. Modern candle snuffers come in different forms, such as traditional scissor-like designs and cone or cylindrical styles, which can be lowered over taper candle wicks.
Modern candle snuffers can be easily cleaned by submerging them in boiling water, using hot, soapy water, or wiping them down with a damp cloth. Please remember that candle snuffers should only be used by adults due to their sharp blades that could potentially injure someone and stored away from children and pets. For an optimal candle care kit, purchase two matte black stainless steel candle care tools, including a snuffer and wick trimmer, as these will ensure smoke-free candles every time!
Our Wick Dipper is the ideal tool to help maximize the benefits of your jar candle.

Furthermore, this handy device can also be used to extinguish without smoke production, move wicks that have shifted, and remove debris from wax pools without risk of leakage – an indispensable addition for anyone using jar candles! This must-have accessory makes jar candles truly enjoyable experiences!
