Why Trim the Wick
By trimming the wick before each burn your candle will last longer. if you don't trim the wick the flame will be larger and the candle will create the liquid wax pool quicker using up more candle.
Trimming the wick prevents smoke, The Fraser Collection uses soy wax which produces less smoke but if the wick is not trimmed the flame is larger and more smoke.
Trim your wick between 1/8" and 1/4".
To trim the wick you can use scissors, nail clippers or a wick trimmer. At The Fraser Collection we prefer to use a wick trimmer as this allows you get down in to the vessel and also catches the black wick preventing it from falling into the candle.
