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.

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.

Wick Outing!

I am not sure what's going on with the latest wicks I received they are ALL going out for recipe has not changed.

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!


Not burning well

My candles went out after 15 min.
I used the 16 oz apothecary container with 2 x ECO 2 6" pretabbed wick
I do not understand why they turning like this

Great wick

These are absolutely perfect for a votive size container! Clean, slow, delightful burn!


Good Wick.... I think

Hello, I'm new to candle making and am using the ECO 2 6" wick on 8oz jelly jar with parasoy wax. I'm getting a really good HT, I find the that I get a good wax pool in diameter and in depth. My only concern is the size of the flame. The flame is a bi tall t and flickers. The wick doesn't let out any soot but does mushroom a bit....Would you say this is a good wick or are there any wick suggestions you can give me?

other notes --- I used no dyes and 6% fragrance

Does the size of the flame matter if everything else is good (wax pool diameter and depth).




I've been using these, and they burn great!!!


Doesn't stay lit

I brought these because candle Science suggested this wick size for their 8oz jelly jars however the wick does not stay lit at all!! I’m so upset now i have to remake all my candles with another type of wick!


Not Satisfied

I used this with 464 soy wax based on the wick guide and I was not satisfied. The wick just burned in the middle part only and not the entire candle. It basically looks like a sinkhole in my candle. It seems like I should stick to using the ECO 10, 14 or 16 wicks.



can i use these wicks when needing 3 wicks in one large jar???

Perfect Wick for 4 oz Tin w/CB-135 Soy Wax

Using the wick guide I chose to try the ECO 2 6" in the 4 oz tin and I used Ecosoya CB-135 soy wax. It worked perfectly! The wax melted evenly and to the edge of the tin each time the candle was burning. See my review about the Ecosoya CB-135 soy wax.


Just barely

I'm new to candle making and so I haven't yet experimented much with wicks but the was the one recommended for using IGI 6006 in a 2.5-3 inch container. That being said I used the medium straight sided jars from this site which say they measure 2.75 inches and I just barely don't have any tunneling problems. If the wick is 100% perfectly centered there is no tunneling. However if it is just the tiniest bit off center the wax pool doesn't reach all the way to one side. It works for my jars but I wouldn't use this wick for anything more than 2.75 inches. I also have some slight soot with this wick but since I'm new to candle making I'm not sure if that's because of the wick or if other things contribute to that. Over all though I think this is pretty good for starters
