Product Update:
You may see some variation in the wax coating on the wick due to different coating processes. The variance of the wax coating on the wick has no impact on the burn of the candle.

About the CD Series
CD (Stabilo) wick is a flat braided cotton wick with paper threads woven into the cotton. The reinforced construction of the wick is designed to ensure a consistent burn with higher fragrance loads, especially with softer, more viscous natural waxes. The superior rigidity of CD wick allows the wick to stand up straighter for easier pours and keeps the wick upright in a deep melt pool. Note: Any carbon buildup should be removed once the wick is extinguished. CD wicks are lead and zinc free.

These wicks are a totally disaster. They smoke a lot and the flames are too high, even when I trim them to 1/4 in. I purchased a bag of 100 and used only 3 out of the bag. I would like to return these to get my money back because they are not safe. I believe they could cause a fire. They are a total waste. Very disappointed!

Works for me

I've been using this wick size for the last year and so far it works well. I use the 8 oz candle tins and Cargill C-3 wax between 6% to 8% fragrance load, depending on the fragrance, some do mushroom more than others but this wick has been working pretty well for the most part.



So I had purchased these wicks for 8oz candles as my blend is soy and beeswax to assist in the hot throw. My only complaint about them is that if you stick to the regular wick trimming rules, expect a ton of mushrooming and a high flame. They also burn quicker due to the higher cotton content but they do work very well to increase the hot throw. Make sure you trim the wick fairly short to help minimize the mushrooming and soot production.
Would recommend for mason and straight sided jars (10oz+).


Smoking and Mushrooming

I purchased these wicks on the suggestion of the Candle Science website, and my candles have been smoking and mushrooming terribly. They are definitely unsellable - I have to stop and trim the wicks every 30 minutes, and still the sides of my candles are black with soot.
Do not recommend - going back to the CD 18, even for these larger sized candles.

Trim Wick Solved Smoke Issue

Initial burn resulted in a tremendous amount of smoke. We trimmed the wick shorter than normal and the test burn performed well with no smoke or soot.


Didn't perform well

this is the only candle suggested for my 3.25 diameter candle with Nature C-6 wax. Unfortunately this burned too hot, the mushrooming was out of control and the smoke on extinguishing was high and I needed to open a window. In this case my guess is to wick down at least 2 sizes here but since this is the only suggestion I am not sure.



The wicks give a even burn but I don’t like the mushrooming and they smoke a lot .

Really good

I always use these wicks and they rarely tunneling me, the hold up there shape when the wax drys and works perfectly with dye! Highly recommend!



I've bought these wicks before for my pillar and container candles and everytime I light one the flame is 4 inches long? I sold 8 candles to someone and now I'm affraid this will happen to them. I used the ones I already had first with no issue then I made myself one and the flame is huge, and I've been making csnd lb es for years. They mushroom right away too, I've never had this issue before. So now what should I use for 9oz straight containers of soy blend and for molted wax blend for 3x4.5 pillars



Can I use these with beeswax since it said natural waxes??

Hi! For beeswax, we've had the most luck with the ECO wick series. However, you are more than welcome to test the CD series with Beeswax!

Not happy

I used the wick guide and was expecting great results having used "craft store" quality wicks and wicks purchased from Amazon prior. Not happy. Testing candles resulted in tunneling. Now I have way too many wicks I can't use.

Hi! The wick you will want to use will depend heavily on the type of wax you'll be using and the diameter of your container but additives such as fragrance oil and dyes can also affect how the candle burns. If you are experiencing some tunneling, wicking up a size may be a better option but if you would like to let us know more about your materials at, we'd be happy to help!

great burn

I started using these wicks with my Soy wax candles using the Golden Brands 444 wax in 3" glass containers and they burn amazing.
soy needs a good hot wicks and this is great and pools the wax right to the edges with a clean burn. from time to time I do have to cut off the mushrooming but overall i'm very happy with it.
