WHY WOODEN WICKS ARE BETTER THAN COTTON
Why Use Wooden Wicks Instead of Cotton Wicks?
Many people are asking these days: why use wooden wicks over a traditional cotton wick? Oh, let me count the reasons!
Our wooden wicks create a truly unique visual AND audible experience. That’s right – you’re getting a beautiful flickering flame and a soft crackling sound that’s reminiscent of cozy nights by a fireplace. What’s not to love?
Wooden Wick Burn Effect
Wooden wicks also produce a distinctive flat horizontal flame, which give a modern and uncommon quality to your candle. I love the shape of this flame compared to the normal run-of-the-mill flame of a cotton wick. Been there, done that! Also, wooden wicks don’t ‘mushroom’ the way cotton wicks do! That means minimal carbon buildup and minimal debris and sooting.
Wooden Wicks Are Easy to Use
So, aside from a beautiful and unique appearance, a soothing crackling sound, and an excellent burn, you might think “done deal, I’m sold!” but wait, there’s more! As a candlemaker, wooden wicks are also easier to use. Since wooden wicks are rigid, they require no setting with a wick bar, no straightening or fidgeting with. Set-up is super simple, requiring only setting them in the wick sustainer and placing them in the vessel with a glue dot. Easy-peasy!
