Take care of your candles to get longer and better burn times. This set includes a wick trimmer, snuffer and wick dipper. Trim your wick before you light your candle each time, use the snuffer to extinguish the flame when you are done burning. The wick dipper is used to prime the wick after the candle is extinguished to prepare it for the next lighting. The wick dipper can also be used to extinguish the flame to avoid the afterglow a candle sometimes produces.
