  • This Wooden wick will not mushroom, and creates very little carbon buildup, soot and debris

Technical Information

  • Large Crackling Booster Wood Wick
  • Dimensions: 0.625" width x 5" length (.04" thickness)
  • These wooden wicks do not need to be soaked in oil or melted wax, as in their natural state they will provide you with the most optimal performance.
  • The amount of crackle that is produced will vary based off of the candle wax blend, amount of color, fragrance load and additives used in making the candle. Experience shows that the higher the fragrance load, the more crackle is produced.
  • Always tab the wood wicks prior to placing in wax. When placing your wicks, let the wax start to get slushy (solidify on the bottom) and then center your wick. Then you can pour the rest of your wax into the container.
  • These wooden wicks are made from fruit trees that are sourced from FSC certified mills in the USA. The FSC or Forest Stewardship Council is an independent, non-profit organization that protects forests for future generations and is the only forest certification system supported by groups including the Natural Resources Defense Council, National Wildlife Federation, WWF, Sierra Club and Greenpeace.
  • This Crackling Booster wick is classified as a single ply wooden wick with an adhered 0.2” thick booster wick. Adhered Wicks are created by attaching two or more wicks together with a thin layer of non-toxic adhesive, to make a single layered wick.
  • These Wooden Wicks are 100% natural and are not processed in any way. They are non-toxic and clean burning.
  • We always recommend letting your candles set overnight to cure the wick before burning. When lighting your candle for the first time, light the wick where the wax meets the wick (not at the top of the wick)
  • How long should my wick be? It is generally said that your wick should be between 1/8” - 3/16” before lighting, so trimming may be necessary depending on the height of your candle.

Which Wick Do I Choose?

This information is provided only to indicate general trends. Choosing the correct type and size of wick is one of the most important steps to a great burning candle. While we give wicking suggestions, there are many variables, including wax type, fragrance level, dye and style of container that can affect how a candle burns. In the case of some larger diameter candles, one wick may not be enough and multiple wicks may be required for the candle to burn optimally. We recommend that you always TEST, TEST, TEST your candle before manufacturing to ensure you have chosen the correct wick for your candle.

Burns NIcely but

I have a 3.5"W x 2.5 H container and it is not burning all the way across after 4 hours. After the first burn, I put my air gun on it to even the wax out and tried again. The same problem. So I am going to try the ex-large wooden wick. When you clip the wooden wick low and light it with the flame touching the wax it might help for it to stay lit.

Burn Perfectly

These wicks burn perfectly if you trim properly.
They must be trimmed almost right to the wax.
They give a beautiful crackle sound and strong flame. You wont have to worry about it going out.
I use for a 3.5" diameter vessel. Quick even melt pool, about 45 min. to reach all sides.

Won’t stay lit

I made two candles to try these wicks out and neither stays lit. It almost instantly goes out. I managed to keep one lit for a maybe 15 minutes but it dwindles down, inevitably, and goes out. So decided to remake my candles thinking maybe I trimmed them too short and still the same issue. Not sure how to “use correctly” but if there’s a secret tip, I’d love to know it. Otherwise I won’t be buying these again and will need a substitute.

These worked great for me.

I tested these all sizes of these wicks in soy before the holidays and then sold out of the many candles I made with them. I have received a lot of good feedback and nothing about candles not staying lit - I don’t think that’s an issue with these if they’re used correctly and if customers are properly informed about keeping them trim. I always had one burning at each of my pop-ups anywhere from 4-8 hours and never had one go out. Thanks for offering these!
