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, Odin is the supreme god of all gods, Asen and Vanity alike. He has many names including Woden, Allfather, One Eye, the Furious... which confirms the complexity of his existence.
He is, among other things, the god of war and wisdom, known for his fickleness and therefore both feared and adored.
Odin lives in the world of the gods Asgard, where he overlooks the whole world from his throne Hliðskjálf.
He created the 9 worlds and also gave birth to the first humans Ask and Embla.
