We are changing our wood wick supplier due to lack of availability.  The new wicks should perform as well or better.  Includes wick clip.

Testing is highly recommended

The Wood Wick is an ideal option for vegetable wax blends, beeswax candles or candles with heavy fragrance or dye loads.

Suggested size is for a Large Container (3" to 3.75" Diam) for Soy or Palm Wax.

  • Gently pour the wax into the vessel, leaving 1/8″ – 3/16″ / 3.2mm – 4.8mm of the wick exposed. If the wick is longer you can trim it to this height after the wax has set.
  • After the candle has cooled: If the surface is uneven or has imperfections, you can carefully use a heat gun to even it out. Be very careful not to burn the wick, this is a quick process of gently waving the heat gun a few inches above the surface to quickly melt it.
  • Once the candle has set, trim the wick to 1/8″ – 3/16″ / 3.2mm – 4.8mm.

WoodWick Candles offer an exceptional and unique crackling burning sound. How to Make Wooden Wick Candles Start by gathering all the items that you will need. The candle making process will go much more smoothly if everything is readily accessible. Materials Needed: • Container Candle Wax •Candle Jars or Containers •Fragrance Oil •Candle Dye •Wooden Wicks with tabs •Pouring Pot or Pyrex measuring cup to pour easily •Thermometer •Glue Gun or Glue Dots (Optional) •End Nipper Pliers or Nail Clippers •Butcher Paper or Newspaper •Paper Towels •Cookie Sheet or Pan •Metal Spoon or Stir Stick •Sauce Pan •Metal Cookie Cutter Cover your work area with butcher paper or newspaper. Spills or drips are most times unavoidable, and clean up is much easier if you don’t have to clean wax off of your work surface You may want to preheat your glass containers in the oven on a cookie sheet. This is not necessary with soy wax as it has such a low melting point. Heat from 150 to 170 F and leave for 10 minutes. Be careful when removing from the oven they are hot. Heat your wax until melted, DO not over heat or boil. Once melted add your color and scent, stir and pour into your pouring pot or Pyrex cup. See recommendations for color and scent below. Wick the containers The tabbed wooden wicks will stand straight in the jars without gluing them, but they may move when the wax is poured. Add a small amount of hot glue or a Glue Dot to the bottom of the tab. Press it firmly into the container, but don't press too hard or the prongs on the tab can move. Make sure the wick is as close to the center as possible. Pour the wax mixture Slowly pour the wax into the container making sure not to fill past the widest part of the jar. (There are exceptions to this, such as the tureen jar.) If you pour too quickly, the wax may splash up the side of the jar or form small air bubbles on top of the wax. Avoid pouring wax directly onto the wick. You can adjust the wick slightly if needed, but don't move it around too much; the prongs on the wick tab can easily bend allowing the wick to lean to one side and be off center. Allow to cool When the candle has completely set, you will be ready to trim the wick. Trying to trim the wick too soon will disrupt the wax around the wick. Trim the wick to 1/8 length using end nipper pliers or nail clippers. Be sure not to trim them too short because they would not burn properly. Scent per pound of wax, you will need 1 ounce of scent per 16 oz of soy wax. Most soy wax will not hold more than 2 oz per 16 oz of wax. Color per pound of Wax: Our solid color blocks will color 5 pounds of wax. That varies on how dark you wish your wax. Usually dropping some wax on the wax paper will give you a better idea as to its real color. In the pot it always looks darker. Just shave some off for smaller batches.
