BEESWAX CANDLE REVIEW
I've recently started to make 100% beeswax candles, which I know are tricky to wick correctly. I initially tested in the 4 oz straight sided glass jar and found that the ECO 1 and the ECO 4 both worked well with an 8-10% essential oil load, with the ECO 1 burning more slowly while the ECO 4 definitely burned more quickly, with neither tunneling.
I've decided to use 4 oz metal tins instead of glass jars for my beeswax candles and began testing with the same ECO 1 and ECO 4 wicks. During the initial first test burn, I was disappointed but not very surprised to see both tunneling even after 3 hours. I figured I would have to wick up a size, but decided to light both candles again the next day and was happy to note that they both evened out after about 1-1.5 hours of burning with no tunneling and the wax pool reaching the edge of the jar, with the ECO 4 slightly out performing the ECO 1.
I would recommend both wicks for beeswax candles, and definitely recommend more than one test burn with any candle, as they perform differently as they burn down.
