Why Wooden Wicks?
Updated: Dec 18, 2019
Many people ask the question, what is a wooden wick and why do we use them in our candles. I have the answer.
Wooden Wicks offer great benefits to a container candle. One of the most important benefits for our company, being that they are eco-friendly. The average cotton wick contains lead and zinc. Burning them releases harmful chemicals into the air. Since wood wicks are made from 100% native wood with no dyes or additives, you don’t have to worry about toxic fumes being released into the air when you blow out the candle. You will also experience less smoke in the air.
Here are some additional benefits to using a wood wick candle:
• Light fireside crackle and flicker
• Burns wider for leaf shaped flame
• Does not mushroom
• Creates an even burn pool
• Longer burn time, paired with our wax blend
