We can probably all agree that finding the right size wick for a new candle formula can be pretty frustrating. The vast majority of the emails we receive in our support box are about wicking.
While many factors dictate the size wick required to properly burn a candle, there are two that make the biggest difference: the type of wax and the diameter of the candle.
Those two bits of information and our wick guide will take most of the guess work out of wicking your candles.
About our Wick Guide
These recommendations are estimates only. Use this chart as a starting point to conduct your own burn tests. We can not guarantee that these wicks will work perfectly in your candles.
The candles used in these burn tests were made with a medium shade of color and 1 ounce per pound (or 6%) of fragrance oil. Dark or heavily fragranced candles may require a larger size than the guide recommends.
For best results buy a 5pc. sample pack of the recommended size and conduct a burn test. You may want to buy a sample pack the next larger and smaller size as well. Watch our "Choosing the Right Wick Size" video to see what a properly wicked candle burns like.
