Glad you asked! Really glad you care...
Trimming your wick before each use is the BEST way to get the most out of your candle. They last longer, they burn cleaner, and they perform better!
What happens if you don’t trim your wick?
Well, your flame could become too large, smoke or soot, burn unevenly and even extinguish itself.
Trimming your wooden wick is extremely easy. You can use these gorgeous wick trimmers and trim to about 1/8-3/16 of an inch, or you could simply pinch off any excess char with your fingertips (of course, once the candle is cool) to expose natural wood and voilà! You’re ready to properly and safely burn!
I was unable to delete my previous review so I am writing a retraction. What I didn't say in my previous review was how much I love Jessie Messy candles. It was a difficult decision to give a negative review; however, I am pleased to report that Jessie Messy went beyond what was necessary to make things right. Thanks Jessie Messy 🥰
Beautiful packaging and amazing scents!!
I included the wick trimmer as part of a gift with a candle, personalized label, and wrapping. My sister loved the whole set and commented on the quality of the trimmer.
