Candle accessories are important to extending the burn time of your favorite candles. Wick trimmers are crucial to keeping your wick shortened so as to not burn your candle flame too high or hot. Burning a candle in this manner not only decreases the life of the candle, it is also a fire hazard. A box of decorative matches or torch lighter is necessary for lighting your candle, and also looks nice resting on a shelf or mantel. Torch lighters are elongated, and are the preferred tool for lighting candle wicks that are hard to reach with conventional matches, preventing burnt fingers. Snuffers extinguish flames properly, decreasing the risk of being burnt by hot wax. Snuffers come in a variety of decorative styles and designs. Consider including a candle accessory when gifting a candle for an added thoughtful touch.
