Candle accessories will add the final touch to the collection of elegant candles that have so proudly added to your decor. They are both decorative and convenient, and some are essential for taking proper care of candles for a clean burn and longer life. Candles are just not complete without the accessories.
Candle lighters such as the Wickman Candle Lighter are not only handy and useful, but they can enhance the décor of any room. There are some very attractive lighters available for candles. The 12 inch long butane Wickman Candle Lighter is refillable and has a beautiful silver finish. It can be left out for quick access.
For a nice rustic touch, the Social Light Oxford Refillable Lighter is made of sturdy metal with a satiny silver or antique bronze finish. The stitched leather handle comes in six colors: navy, black, toffee, dark red and dark brown. This candle lighter is a bit pricier than the Wickman, but very eye-catching with its distinguished look.
Snuffing out candles prevents wick smoldering and eliminates unpleasant smoke after the candle is put out. Pushing the wick into the pool of hot wax with a wick dipper snuffs out the candle, eliminating smoking residue and odors. The Wickman Wick Dipper has a pretty design, is quality made and yet inexpensive, and it is easy to use.
A wick trimmer is a necessary candle accessory, because it is important to keep the wick trimmed. Wicks should be trimmed to the length of 1/4 inch for adequate burning. Wicks that are too long cause the candle to smoke by obstructing the flow of oxygen. A trimmer that does the job with ease is the Wickman Wick Trimmer-Matte Black. It is ideally shaped for trimming and catches the wick cutting.
