    Wooden Wicks – Medium

    *Tabs included (shown in picture 2 above - click see 1 more picture)

    Please Note: Effective 5/5/2017, the design of our wood wicks has changed. They are no longer treated with a burning agent and will burn slightly different than our previous wooden wicks that were treated with a burning agent. Our new wicks are also a single-ply wick with the same thickness as the previous two-ply wood wicks (0.04"). We chose the single-ply to maintain an all-natural wood wick. The new two-ply wood wicks are now made with an adhesive that, while non-toxic, does not qualify as all-natural. We also found the single-ply wicks to burn much better than the new two-ply wicks during our extensive testing.

    Our new medium wood wicks are now 6" in length, which is almost an inch longer than our previous wood wicks. This makes them suitable for taller containers or allows for cutting them in half to get two wicks for shorter containers.

    Based on the new design, testing is recommended to determine the best size for a particular candle application. However, in our testing, going up 1/8" in size seemed to have a very similar burn as the previous treated wood wicks. It is also very important to keep the wicks trimmed to no more than 1/8" to 3/16" before lighting. Trimming them longer than this will prevent the wax from pulling up the wick and will cause the flame to burn out.

    Wooden wicks are very easy to use and add unique appeal to candles. This is the perfect wooden wick complete with custom tabs. They are suitable to be used in paraffin, soy, or gel wax. Wooden wicks are known for their distinct ‘crackle’ or ‘sizzle’ sound when burning in finished candles.

    Medium wooden wick size: 6"L x 1/2"W

    Medium wooden wicks are generally recommended for small to medium sized containers or tins. However, testing is recommended to achieve the desired burning characteristics. The type of wax used will impact the specific size needed for a particular candle.

    Environmentally Friendly

    Our wooden wicks give you the ultimate performance in an all-natural wooden wick. All wood used to manufacture our wooden wicks is purchased in the USA and only from mills that maintain an FSC certification and practice environmentally friendly forestry standards.

    Directions:

    • Tab the wicks prior to placing in wax
    • Melt wax, pour into container
    • The amount of crackle directly relates may be impacted the amount of color and fragrance that is added to the candle. The best crackle may be produced with fragrance levels of 6% - 8%, but testing is recommended to achieve desired results
    • Let wax start to get slushy (solidify on the bottom) and place the wooden wick(s) in the center of the wax
    • Monitor periodically when cooling to ensure wooden wick(s) remained centered
    • Allow finished candles to cure overnight before burning
    • Trim wick to no more than 1/8" to 3/16” before lighting

    1. I love these!!! 5 Star Review

      I thought when Flaming Candle made the change to the more natural untreated wicks that I would have to deal with major adjustments with my candles. Turns out that these are so much better. I really love them. Thanks FC.

    2. These wicks are awesome! 5 Star Review

      I use a lot of fragrance and dye (and even a little mica powder) in my soy candles and I was having trouble finding a singular wick that could handle the load. These do the trick tho! They crackle nicely and don’t smoke, which is another bonus with all the extra stuff I use. Will definitely be buying these again!!

    3. Love the wicks! 5 Star Review

      I’m new to candle making. These were my first try! Awesome. I never had a problem with flames going out. Nice crackle. I used the medium and large in 8 oz glass containers. Will be ordering again. In comparison to other wooden wicks purchased, the medium is a true medium I. Comparison to their mediums that appear “mini”. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it

    4. No problems with these or any size 5 Star Review

      Stays lit just fine for me. No issues what so ever. I use medium-extra large. No difference. Only light once and that’s it. Soy 464

    5. Excellent 5 Star Review

      First time making candles and these were super easy to work with. Always crackled. I used the medium with 8 oz jar. Flame is pretty big though. The small appears it would be too small for my containers. Definitely will purchase again

    6. Superior Quality and Performance! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 11th Feb 2019

      This last year I decided to give wooden wicks a try and sampled them from different companies, but the ones from Flaming Candle have performed the best! They burn clean without soot and are very simple to use.
