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 without color and 1.2 ounces per pound (or 7.5%) of fragrance oil. Dyed or heavily fragranced candles may require a larger size than the guide recommends.
We offer 12 piece bags of most wick sizes in the CD and ECO series, so that you can conduct your initial burn tests with minimal investment. You may find it helpful to keep a range of wick sizes on hand for any ongoing or future testing. Watch our "Choosing the Right Wick Size" video to see how a properly wicked candle burns.
