Choosing the right wick

Not all wicks are born equal.

There are a wide variety of wicks sold in the world, and it is important to know that the wick you use will be suitable for the wax you are working with and the diameter of the jar, but above all it is important to know that the wick is made of good raw materials.
Like all our raw materials, we also import our wicks from the highest quality factories.
Look for a high-quality wick suitable for your candle: stable flame, min. black smoke, high scent distribution, no need to cut it after a few lightings and the pool of wax it produces reaches the sides of the candle (more information below).
We hold several series of wicks, does that mean a series? This means that from the same type of wick, there is a collection of different thicknesses, suitable for different diameters of jars, the thicker the wick, the more it will fit a wider jar.


In the end, even after we write a lot of words here, the most important thing is to do tests to find the wicks that suits you, because the type of smell and the percentage of smell you will work with is also a parameter that affects the combustion.
We strongly recommend doing tests, so how do you know the wick is the right wick?
  • Step 1: Choosing the type of wax, if you use vegetable waxes such as soy and coconut, we recommend you work with TCR wicks, ecological wicks designed to work with vegetable wax, if you work with our SP wax series (soy paraffin) you can also use wicks The powerful Stabilo CDs that will do an excellent job.
  • Step 2: Ordering testers, on the page of the wick you can get a good indication of which thickness of wicks you should try.
  • Step 3: Preparing the candles, after you have chosen the tool to pour the wax into, you have chosen the wax you want to work with, and you have decided on the type and percentage of scent, you can approach the craft and produce a number of completely identical candles, the only difference between which is the thickness of the wick.
  • Step 4: Waiting, let the candles rest for a few days, during the rest the candles will harden and the smell will connect ideally to the wax, it is important to let the candles rest in a shady place at a temperature of up to 25 degrees.
  • Step 5: Lighting, cut the wick to about half a cm high and light all the candles at the same time, after about 3-4 hours, look at the candle from above and see which pool of wax is closest to the sides of the vessel, the right wick for you will be the one whose candle reached right up to The edge and maybe even almost to the edge, but not beyond that.
