How to choose the right candle wick
Selecting the best wick to use for your candles is one of the most important aspects of candle making! The choice of wick affects how the candle burns, the strength of the hot throw, and more.
Because of the many available wick options, it can feel daunting to know where to begin. But we’ve got you covered with all the information you need to pick the right candle wicks!
A general rule of thumb
To make properly wicked candles, you need to know two main things:
- Wax type
- Diameter of the candle
Start by determining the type of wax you’re using and the diameter of your container or pillar mold. The wax indicates which wick series to use (ECO, CD, or LX), while the diameter of your container or mold indicates which size to use.
After gathering this info, use our Candle Wick Guide below to see the wick we recommend based on your wax and diameter.
