Super excited to use these but wicking is stressing me out.

Excited about added this jar size/style to my product line but wicking is very discouraging. The jar is gorgeous and light weight. This will make a beautiful addition to my collection. I use Coconut Apricot wax and really want to double wick. I've tried double cd5, cd8, I have Zinc and premier wicks on hand. I feel like I am starting from scratch pending lost on wicks just for this single jar. I bought 3 cases so I can't turn back.

Hi there Kimberly, thanks so much for your review! We're super bummed to hear that you're having some trouble wicking the Coconut Apricot wax. Wicking is most often the most frustrating part of candle making, and we'd be happy to help. A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email to assist.

I find this jar is better with double wicking its works great but it does not work well with single wicking

Try SIngle Wicking

I really love this jar but was having a really hard time finding the right wick. All wicks I used, including the suggested wick in the guide burned really hot with 6006. I changed to a single Premier wick that works excellent. I will continue using these jars.

Great jars

These jars are very nice! I love them and the lid selection too. I use c-3 wax with two htp 93 wicks works great. Just make sure you put it to where the wick is going to curl out towards the outside of the jar. Google htp wick curl if you need to learn about how they burn. Or light a wick before you put it in a jar to learn which way they're going to curl.

Double Wick Success

I love this jar. I have been double wicking this size for years with LX-14s in 464 soy and they burn perfectly.
