WOODEN WICK CANDLE SAFETY + CARE
WOODEN WICK CANDLES AND ACHIEVING THE BEST BURN
The soft crackle and unique flicker of a wooden wick provides a truly unique and engaging candle experience by creating a warm and intimate ambiance.
Our wooden wicks are made from 100% natural wood from Sappy Fruit Trees and are sourced and manufactured in the USA from FSC-certified mills. Wooden wick candles provide a long and clean burn by following the below best practices.
- TRIMMING YOUR WICK: For an optimal burn, always keep your wooden wick trimmed to “1/8” and clean off any burned wood and charred bits from previous use. The heat from the flame needs to draw the wax upward through the wick to ensure a proper and clean burn. If the wick is too long and not trimmed to “1/8”, the wax will not make it to the flame and will not remain lit.
- LIGHTING YOUR WOODEN WICK: Lighting a wooden wick candle is slightly different than lighting a traditional cotton wick. To ensure an even burn, light the flame across the entire length of the wick, not in just one corner.
- INITIAL BURN IS THE MOST IMPORTANT: Allow your candle enough burning time for the wax pool to fully melt to the edges of the container. This may take up to a few hours depending on the container size. If a full melt pool is not formed during the initial burn, a tunneling effect may form and persist for the remainder of the candle.
CANDLE CARE SAFETY: Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish the candle whenever leaving the room. Place candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface away from anything flammable. Protect candles from areas with drafts, fans, or breezes. Keep candles out of reach of children and pets. Do not move or handle the candle while it is lit. Maintain the proper wick length and remove any debris. A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time. Allow your candle to cool completely before handling or relighting. Discontinue burning a candle once “1/4“ of wax remains.
