It is recommended to trim it regularly, this improves the size of the flame.
Remove the wick ashes from the soy wax so that it can burn optimally.

In Germanic mythology, Kvasir is a diplomat created by the Aesir and Vanes who had to resolve the disputes between the two families without bloodshed and in a peaceful way.
Kvasir was created from the saliva of the gods of Aesir and Vanes, and his wisdom was known throughout the world.
He was therefore killed by Fjalar and his brother Galar, two dwarves who were after his knowledge.
It is said that by adding fermented honey to the blood of Kvasir, they then made the Poet's mead which gives inspiration to poets and bards.
