What is a Wooden Wick?
A Wooden wick is distinctive and appealing due to its own set of traits and advantages. Its beneficial impacts on the environment 🌿are amazing in addition to how beautiful it lights.

1. Trim Your Wick
A wooden wick should be trimmed before each use to about 1/8”.
What to use? You can use Scissors or a wick trimmer be sure to Check out our wick trimmers in our shop. If you need one!
Why is that important?
You must trim the wick before each use otherwise it will not be able to pull the wax up the wick and the flame will diminish and even possibly extinguish.
2. Allow enough proper Burn Time for Your Candle
To get the most out of your candle, we suggest that you:
Always burn your candle for long enough to let the molten layer cover the whole surface. Your candle should burn to the outside of the bowl, this allows the candle to burn evenly – using all of the wax, and not leaving any holes or lots of wax around the edges. Wax has a memory too – so if you only let it burn to a small diameter, it won’t burn fully again
Use a candle snuffer to extinguish your candle, this avoids accidentally blowing any soot particles into the wax – but if this does happen, you can use a cotton bud to remove the soot particles from the liquid wax after the wicks have been extinguished.
Trim your wicks to about 1/8” before lighting, to avoid making too much smoke.
3. Candle Safety
Always stay safe, by making sure your candle is on a level, fire-resistant surface, and that it is not left unattended.
- Do not allow candles to burn unattended or in the reach of children or pets.
- Keep well away from flammable items.
- Extinguish all candles if you are going out.
- Do not move the candle if the wax is still liquid – molten wax burns.
