There’s nothing more relaxing than kicking back after a long day and enjoying the scents of our luxury scented candles. Our candles can create a cosy and relaxing ambiance in any space, but to truly enhance your candle experience, there are a few handy little accessories out there that can make a big difference to the overall experience. Here at Melt, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite accessories you can get your hands on to help you create the perfect scented candle experience right at home.
A candle snuffer is a must-have accessory for any candle enthusiast. It’s a small tool that allows you to extinguish your candle flame without blowing it out, which can cause smoke and potentially damage the wick. Using a snuffer is not only safer, but it also helps to maintain the integrity of the candle’s scent, which is exactly what you’ll want to do with our delightfully luxurious scented candles. If you’re looking for some inspiration, why not consider a seasonal touch with our Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter options.
A wick trimmer is a tool that helps to keep your candle wick at the optimal length. A wick that’s too long can cause the candle to burn too quickly, create a large flame, and produce excess smoke. By trimming the wick to about ¼ inch, you can ensure a clean and even burn, which will also help your candle to last longer. As an added tip, it’s worth noting that the best way to maintain your candle is by ensuring you burn a suitable pool within your candle. To find out how to do this, check out our blog on why your luxury candle’s pool is important.
A candle coaster is a small dish or tray that you can place underneath your candle to catch any wax drips or spills that come off your candle as it burns. What’s more, it also helps to protect your surfaces from heat damage. A coaster can be especially useful for candles with wooden wicks, which tend to produce more soot and ash than cotton wicks. Don’t worry too much though, all of our delightfully fragrant candles utilise cotton wicks for this very reason, so you can relax in the knowledge that your candles won’t shoot out soot and ash.
Candle wick dipper
A candle wick dipper is a unique tool that allows you to extinguish your candle flame and also helps to centre the wick. To use this, dip the wick into the melted wax surrounding the wick, and this will coat and extinguish the flame. This method also helps to prevent the wick from drifting off-centre, which can cause uneven burning and tunnelling (we discuss pitfalls of tunnelling in the blog linked above!)
So, with this newfound knowledge you’ll be able to go forth and confidently pick out candle accessories that suit your tastes! When it comes to scented candles though, we’re confident you won’t find the same level of care or quality anywhere else, and if you have any more questions regarding our exquisite range of luxury scented candles, or you’re in the market to purchase some of your own, you’re in exactly the right place.
