We're proud of our candles and we hope you are too!! We certainly don't recommend blowing out your candle (as tempting as it might be!) because it can damage your wick and prevent it from burning at it's very best. A better way to extinguish your candle is with one of these sweet, vintage-looking candle snuffers. You simply place the end over the flame and just like that, the flame is out! It might cost you the use of about 3 extra muscles but it will save your candle in the long-run.
