Picking the right wick for your candle is probably the most important part of the whole process. We recommend that you source as many different wick types and sizes and try in in each wax and fragrance combination. Always take notes of the wick and fragrance combination and amounts to consult later.
The wick can be considered as the engine of your candle and the type and size of wick required will depend on the wax, oils, and dye used. The aim is to get a melt pool the hole width of the candle jar after a hour of burning. Keep testing your candles with different wicks and fragrance in your containers until a suitable wick is selected which burns effectively and safely.
