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 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.

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

LX 8 1' Pretabbed Tealight Wick

Works perfectly for my tea lights. I have used them with Soy 10 and GB464.

Excellent tea light wicks for coconut wax

I have tried them all and this wick burns evenly for all 30 of the scents I use, no more days of stocking and search for four different tea light wicks. If you use soy or coconut wax, give them a try!

Paraffin Wax Coated

If you are using a natural wax and care about toxins, do not purchase these although the CS site recommends them. They are coated in paraffin wax and it is not listed anywhere on the description or attached documentation. It also does not help that even though that is the case, I have to pay to return them myself. So far, not a great experience. Beware of these wicks if you are not up for using paraffin.

Hi there! I'm happy to say that none of our wicks are coated in any form of paraffin. All of our pre-tabbed wicks, the LX 8 wicks included, are coated in a blend of vegetable wax and beeswax. The wicks are recommended for high melt point waxes, and paraffin waxes are among those options, but, the wicks themselves contain no paraffin! A member of our team will be reaching out via email regarding our return policy and to ensure we're able to relay this information to you.

Burn Perfectly

After reading the poor reviews on the LX-1 tealight wick, I ordered these LX-8 tealight wicks and I have burned several in different scents now, and they are perfect. I'll be ordering more. I highly recommend these wicks.
