Tealight Candle Wick Dimensions
Choose a Variant

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.

The ECO 1 1" wick is recommended for soy tealight candles. ECO wick is constructed from natural flat cotton threads interwoven with paper threads that produces a rigid structure. The rigidity of this wick makes it an easy wick to use when making soy tealights. This wick produces a consistent flame with a slight curl which ensures an even burn. ECO wicks are lead and zinc free.

For help choosing the right wick for your candle, visit our wick guide.

Quickly secure your wicks with with our Wick Stickers (small) for tealight.

these wicks are great with any type of soy wax that ive used for the plastic tealights, theyre amazing each tiem i purchase an order but this time around they only sent 56 wicks instead of 100 and i only realized because i suddenly ran out of candle wicks while prepping tealights. great otherwise!

Best Wick for the Tealight Cups

Wicks are perfect for the tealight cups offered by candlescience. Both are great products and I highly recommend.

These are perfect in the tealight candle cups! They dont fall apart like some wicks I've tried, they're easy to straighten, and they burn nicely too. Highly recommend!

We pour about 250,000 tealights a year, ran out of normal eco 1 wicks we source from another supplier, so we ordered a few thousand here to carry us over. Paid about twice as much as normal but we were in a pinch. By far these are the worst wicks we ever had to work with. Will not make that mistake again.

No problems With These Wicks. Just Right For Tealights

I have used these in GB444 soy tealights with much success. I have not had issues with my tealights going out. A full melt pool is achieved without (the container that the tealights are placed in) getting too hot. ECO 1 tealight wicks throw (scent) great and trim themselves with hardly any debris in the melt pool. They look long, but if you light one as is, in my experience, they don’t soot and they don’t produce a consistently tall flame. They burn for over three hours, but I haven’t burned mine for more than 2.5 hrs at a time. Be sure to carefully straighten each wick by hand to center it after pouring. I have burned tealights with slightly off-centered wicks and they burned fine. Be sure to be gentle when straightening wicks to minimize the risk of spilling wax, especially using aluminum tealight cups.

They're perfect for tealight candles. My only complaint is that a lot come bent since they're sent in a bag, and are hard sometimes to get straightened out again.
