Scented candles promote a romantic mood, a lovely scent and a calming feel. However, once it's time to put out the flame, you're left with a smoky smell and hazy air. Candle wicks are typically supposed to be made out of cotton or paper, but they aren't always. There are certain kinds of candles that may even advance indoor air pollutants. Lighting a candle every now and then is unlikely to provoke any allergies but putting out a candle without smoke will foster cleaner air.

The Trick

The best way to extinguish the candle flame without releasing any smoke is to snuff it out. There are candle snuffers available in the market that you can use, and they are actually quite effective.

Candle snuffers are also known as candle extinguishers, and it’s shaped like a bell, and attached to a thin post. The cone, or the bell-shaped snuffer, can be put on top of the candle, specifically the flame, and it’s going to snuff it out effectively.

Extinguishers have been used since the olden times, and they are still quite effective. Some people consider them antiques, but they are still relatively available.

THE CANDLE TOOL: Candle snuffers have been used for centuries for extinguishing candle flames. The cone shaped top keeps air away from the flame which causes it to extinguish. Candle snuffers can be used for all types of candles: scented container candles, tapers, and pillars. We recommend snuffers that “dangle” so that you can extinguish them from any angle.

THE FACTS: If wick dippers are the newest candle tool to hit the shelves, candle snuffers are the OG of candle tools. Wick dippers are great for your container candles, but snuffers allow you to extinguish taller candles such as tapers and pillars, while eliminating the chance of blowing hot wax all over the place.
