Crackling Wood Wicks

Crackling wood wicks are another innovative option. Being a wooden wick, this style crackles slightly when burning. Crackling wood wicks are always used in conjunction with a cotton wick and tab assembly. This combination burns with a beautiful and stable circular flame. The flame stays 'true', surrounded by its wooden fence. This combination is powerful - any mushrooming or curling is contained within the confines of the circular wood wick, keeping the flame steady and 'true'.

Crackling wood wicks are (in my humble opinion), the most unique wicks on the market. They are made from sappy fruit trees and sourced from forest stewardship council (FSC) -Certified Mills in the USA. Tube wicks provide a gorgeous circular shaped flame.

Wood Wicks

Is there a difference in burning a candle with a wooden wick vs. a candle with a cotton wick?

The answer is yes and no…

The basics of lighting and enjoying are simple and similar enough, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Most information that you’ll find suggests keeping a cotton wick trimmed to 3-5mm, and it is important to trim a wooden wick just as short. If the wick is too long, the wax will not pull up the wick, and the flame will dim or even extinguish. Wooden wicks don’t “mushroom” or “bloom” – basically, that means that they don’t create a ugly black ball on the top of the wick that lingers and smokes after burning for a while.

Wooden wicks burn much cleaner, and while they don’t get the carbon build-up that needs to be trimmed off of cotton wicks, they will develop a slight amount of ash at the tip of the wick. The ash can be easily broken off when cool before relighting or cut using a wick trimmer. Sometimes, if there is too much ash build-up, you will notice the flame getting smaller, but once you remove it, the flame comes right back to life. Just be careful not to leave any debris in your candle and follow all of the standard candle burning safety guidelines.
