Why We Switched to Wooden Wicks

Why We Switched to Wooden Wicks

We are excited to announce a new version of your favourite candle!

We kept all the aspects you loved and made a few minor changes. The candles are still non-toxic, pet friendly, scented using only essential oils and made from an ethically sourced coconut + soy wax blend. We swapped out the cotton-core wick for an FSC Certified Wooden Wick and here's why: 

  1. More Scent Throw: Wooden wicks offer a superior scent throw due to their wider flame, wax melts more evenly, releasing scents more effectively. wood wicks have the ability to absorb and distribute oils more evenly, offering a longer-lasting and more consistent scent release.

  2. Even and Clean Burn: Say goodbye to tunneling and uneven burns. Wooden wicks produce a wider flame, ensuring that the wax melts evenly across the entire surface of the candle. This means fewer wasted wax and a longer-lasting burn time.

  3. Sustainability: Wooden Wicks are a greener alternative to traditional cotton wicks. Our wooden wick is FSC Certified. FSC Certified wood wick in candles signifies that the wood used in the wick originates from responsibly managed forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This certification ensures sustainable harvesting practices, promoting environmental conservation and social responsibility throughout the supply chain of candle production. Plus, they're biodegradable!

We also have some tips to share on how to keep them burning beautifully:

  • Trim the Wick: Before lighting your candle for the first time, trim the wick to about a quarter of an inch. This helps to ensure a clean, even burn and prevents excessive smoking.

  • Allow for Even Melting: Make sure to let the wax melt evenly across the entire surface of the candle during each use. This helps to avoid tunneling and extends the life of your candle.

  • Regular Maintenance: Keep your candle in top condition by regularly trimming the wick between uses. This prevents mushrooming and ensures a consistent burn every time.
