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 LX Series
LX wick is a specially braided flat cotton wick which maintains a slight curl when burning. The curl moves the tip of the wick into the hottest part of the flame, which helps to minimize or eliminate carbon buildup (mushrooming), reduce smoking, and provide a 'self-trimming' effect, which creates a very stable and consistent flame. LX wicks are lead and zinc free.

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

wick test

just made 1st candle in an 8 oz ( jelly jar ) using a LX 20 wick . I did not have the Lx 22 on hand. I let this candle burn for 12 hours straight and it still left a very small wax wall . This wick did not burn high and I did not have any smoke issues . I just needed the 22 size. I also noticed it did not burn hot because I could move it handling it from the top of the jar . It was warm but not hot . I now have to test for a size 16 oz. canning jar . Guessing on size of around LX 26 - 28 . Has anyone used this wick in a 16 oz . jar ????? your suggestions PLEASE

These are the best wicks I have tried so far! They burn down perfectly in my 8oz Jelly Jars.


Creates tunneling in 12 oz jars

This size is recommended for the 12 oz jars but every one of my candles creates tunneling as the flame isn't enough to reach the outside of the candle.

Our Go-To Wick Series

The LX Wick Series, specifically the LX2 is our go to wick for our single-wick candles. We use everything from the LX14 all the way thru to the LX28 in our vessels. Previously we used ECO; however, in our testing we found greater HT, less sooting, and a slower burn with LX wicks vs ECO. It all comes down to testing testing & more testing.

Wouldn’t recommend

Have a bad issue with mushrooming , so bad that when i blow it out black pieces of ash fall into the container , or if i blow too hard they fly outside of the container. Chose this based on the wick guide and cut it to the recommended 1/4 inch

Would this wick make an even melt pool using soy wax in a 12 oz status jar?


I use Harmony 4630 Wax the preabbed LX 22 6 wicks are great, but once the wick burns I see black smoke from the wick. Is this because im not
clipping short enough? How short should wicks be cut?

Hi! Thanks for your review! We always recommend trimming the wicks to 1/4 of an inch.

I've used just about every wick for my 464 wax and was struggling with hot throws. This wick did the trick for my 12 oz 3 1/4 diameter jars. I am going to try it with a few more fragrances.

I struggled for a long time finding a perfect wick and wax combo, but have had much success with the LX 22, 464 golden wax, and a 3 and 1/4 diameter inch glass. The candle burns for up to 35 hours clean to the glass with no dye and between 1 oz, and less for essential oil oz per pound of fragrance. plenty strong, but not over powering. Love these wicks, happy creating! PS I don't use color anymore, too unpredictable. And I would love to know if there is a LX for votives a little longer than 3 ". I'm happy my clients are enjoying this very cool candle.

Best wicks for soy candles, hands down.
