This stops the candle from having an overly large smoky flame, and reduces unsightly soot around the edge of your glass container.
This is to ensure your wax pool melts completely to the edge of the glass container, as soy wax actually has a memory.
This is to avoid excessive container heat and soot build up on the glass.
To extinguish flame use a skewer or similar shaped object to gently dip the lit wick into the hot wax.
Be sure to trim the wick to 0.66 cm next time before re-lighting your candles.
