The Benefits of Wooden Wick Candle

The Benefits of Wooden Wick Candle

We often get questions why we use wooden wick and not the regular cotton wicks for our candle. Here are some of the reasons:

  1. a clean burn: Wooden wicks have nearly zero carbon build-up and therefore no soot and debris build up. Just trim off any charred wood from previous burns, and your flame will shine clean + bright. Unlike Cotton wick which will “mushroom” due to the soot it creates.

  2. long lasting: Wooden wicks burn slower and longer than cotton wick soy candles, by up to 25%, giving you more bang for your buck.
  3. wider fragrance throw: wooden wicks diffuse heat more rapidly into the wax, and can push up to 35% more fragrance throw into a room, compared to cotton wicks.
  4. the crackling ambiance: wooden wick have a distinct crackling sound when burning, and a generally more calming and appealing aspect in creating ambiance.

  5. a modern aesthetic: Wooden wicks have a distinctive flat horizontal flame, giving your candle a modern feel 

  6. Eco-friendly: Our wicks are 100% wood, they are not only eco-friendly and sustainable, but also toxin and phthalate free.
