When you want to extinguish a candle flame without it smoking, you’ve got a couple options: use a candle snuffer or a wick dipper. A candle snuffer and wick dipper essentially perform the same function: extinguish the flame without the wick smoking.
Although wick dippers are less known than candle snuffers, they are less expensive and have a little more functionality. In addition to extinguishing without smoking, wick dippers can make difficult-to-reach candle flames easier to extinguish, the act of dipping the wick in wax allows for easier re-lighting of the candle and it can be used to re-center the wick if it shifts while the candle was burning.
Instructions for use: hold the tool by the handle, use the hook end to push the wick into the hot wax pool then lift it out of the wax for the next burn.
