How to light a candle without touching a flame to the wick. A common misconception is that a candle burns by burning the wick. What is actually burning is wax vapour which is drawn up through the wick. When you blow a candle out, wax vapour continues to rise off the candle so you can light this vapour which burns back down to the wick, relighting the candle.
