Candle snuffers have been used throughout history to extinguish burning candles while avoiding problems associated with blowing on hot wax. Using a candle snuffer will allow the excess wick to burn away, preventing the wick from becoming too long.
In ritual magick, candle snuffers are an important tool that represent the end of a working. It is said that when one blows out a candle during ritual, you may “blow away” or disrupt the energy of a spell. These beautiful snuffers are not only a must-have tool for those who burn candles, but also make a wonderful addition to one’s home or sacred space.
