How to Use Wood Wick Candles
We believe that candles should crackle, plain and simple. That's why we use double-ply, medium-flame, crackling wooden wicks. Transform the scent and sound of your space with a crackling wood wick candle.
Wood wick candles function differently than traditional cotton wick candles. Here are some ways to properly care for your candle.
Tip #1: Keep the wick short.
Seriously, this is the most important tip we can give you. Trim the wick before your first burn. Before your next burn, use the back of a lighter or butter knife to knock off the burnt bits of the wick, then light! If the wick is too long, it cannot absorb the wax and burn properly. Most problems with wood wick candles can be solved by trimming the wick!
Tip #2: Burn in 2-4 hour increments.
Your first burn should last 60+ minutes so the wax can melt evenly. An uneven wax pool can drown the wick & cause lighting problems. To preserve longevity of scent in the candle, do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time.
Tip #3: Keep out of reach of kids & pets.
Unlike our flameless wax melts, these candles have an exposed flame when in use.
