Wood Wicked Candle Care
Most of us are familiar with cotton wicked candles but the crackling of a wood wick candle can create an oh-so-soothing ambiance. But a wood wick requires a little extra care when it comes to getting your candle lit and keeping it lit!
Lighting a wood wick
The soy/coconut wax of your candle is what fuels the flame and keeps it burning. It's best to light your candle from the base of the wood wick and not from the top like you would with a cotton wick. Once lit, the heat of the flame will draw the soy wax through the wick and fuel the flame.
Pro tip: when lighting your wood wicked candle hold your candle on an angle to best reach the base of the wood wick and remember it may take several attempts to get it lit.
Keeping it lit
Just like a candle with a cotton wick, the first burn is the most important to prevent your candle from tunnelling. On the first burn, allow your candle to fully melt to the edges of the jar for a clean and even burn as you continue to enjoy your candle.
Did you know soy/coconut wax has a memory? If a “memory ring” develops because the wax did not melt to the edges of the container it can tunnel this way for the life of the candle. So be sure to commit to the first burn of your candle and get cozy, grab a soothing drink, open a book and relax in the flickering light of that flame for a couple of hours.
Keep it trim
For a wood wick, you'll want to keep the wick trimmed a bit shorter than your cotton wicked candles. Between burns trim the wick to about ⅛” and clean away any burnt wood from its previous burn.
Every candle is melted, blended, and poured in my Osoyoos home studio and made from a blend of coconut and soy wax, essential oils, phthalate-free, lead and zinc free wicks, or wood wicks sourced from FSC certified mills, and poured in a reusable glass jar.
