ECO 2 6" Pretabbed Cotton Candle Wick
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.

About the ECO Series
ECO wick is constructed from natural flat cotton threads interwoven with paper threads that produce a rigid structure for easy pouring. The consistent flame and slight curl of ECO wicks work well with natural waxes and ensures an even burn.

ECO wicks are lead and zinc free.

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

Conveniently secure your wicks with Wick Stickers (large) or Wick Stickers Pro.

I had to keep testing

I bought the qty of 12 to test these out before making a big purchase. My first test the wick did not work well at all. Well, science is in the name of the company for a reason, I had to take notes and keep on testing to find out if this wick would work well for me. I tested this again in a different sized vessel, same wax, same fragrance load and it worked as expected. No high flames, no tunneling, soot free, great hot throw. Don't give up on the first test.

Worked Great! TEST TEST TEST!

We purchased these for our 2 1/2 inch diameter 5oz tin using 6006. They work beautifully! Very frustrating to see reviews from people that expect candle science to solve all their wicks and wax problems. That’s our job as a chandler. Buy multiple wicks and test in your own environment until you get the right choice. The app as stated is just a starting point! If your tin diameter is 2 1/2 inches and you’re using 6006 wax, this wick will work perfect!

Excellent wicks!

These were the recommended wicks for 6006 in my apothecary jars and they turned out beautifully. Minimum soot, excellent HT & CT. I recommend!

none experience makers=bad reviews that arent helpful.

I don't usually leave reviews but i decided to because of the amount of bad reviews. Candle science is the one of the few places i receive my wicks nicely packaged and not crushed all together. Unfortuanly most of reveiws are from a user error or one being annoyed because they dont know what they're doing and expected candle science to be accurate when TESTING is huge in candle making. These are suggested starting points for your jar NOT your recipe. With that being said do your homework before leaving reviews.

I have used these ones for my IGI6006 soy/paraffin blend wax in 2.5 in diameter containers. No soot smoke to them and burns very well without wasting wax around the sides that doesn't melt(very small 1/8 in).

Hi There, We're so sorry to hear you've been having some trouble with this wick in our 16 oz Apothecary Jar! There are several factors that can affect the way a candle burns, and wick size is only one part of the equation. Fragrance and dye usage, environmental conditions, or even how the candle is burned can all affect the overall burn profile. Our Wick Guide will offer a solid starting point for testing based on your container size and wax type, but results can certainly vary. We'd love to take a look at your burn test results and see how we can help though! A member of our Support Team will be reaching out shortly via email.

I have had the hardest time finding the wick the best for my candles . I started off using ECO 14 with apothecary 16 oz jars and the flame was too high and left jar black and sick would curl under wax. I then used the recommended wicks fir the size jars i use.. I also doubled wicked it and now it barely burns the wax... I am a loyal customer and this is becoming frustrating

about wicks

In my personal experience, Candle science is the best only thing I have to say something about is the shipping cost is killing me.
but regarding wicking a jar we have to do a lot of research and testing when it comes to wicking a container the recommendation is just that it does not mean results are 100% guarantee, is just an approximation we all have to do our own testing and make lots of notes on the results - now if is tunneling only means that wick is too small so you go up one more number or if is mushrooming it means is over wick you have to size down that's all. Another thing never goes for the whole batch until you are sure the wick is right for your container is just my personal experience, it saves a lot of money, and energy. Hope this helps. Thank you candle Science for offering only the best.

Issue with 16oz apothecary jars

I tried these wicks out as they’re one of the recommended wicks for the 16oz apothecary jars. I used two wicks like recommended and after about 5 1/2 hours of burn time the whole top wasn’t fully melted. The wicks are probably great for other candle sizes as they did self trim and let little to not smoke when blown out, however be warned with the 16 oz apothecary jars!
