4. Follow the candle care guide above to keep your candle lasting a long time!

Why are Wood Wicks Special?

Wood wicks are known for their crackling sound and unique aesthetic appeal. They are also eco-friendly and can create a cozy atmosphere in any room.

Trim the Wick

Before lighting your wood wick candle, make sure to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. This will prevent the flame from getting too large and ensure a clean burn.

Burn Time

When burning your wood wick candle, allow it to burn for at least 2-3 hours to create a full melt pool. This will prevent tunneling and ensure an even burn in the future.

Extinguishing the Flame

Avoid blowing out the flame of your wood wick candle. Instead, use a wick dipper or snuffer to extinguish it. This will help maintain the integrity of the wick for future burns.


When not in use, store your wood wick candle in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This will help preserve the scent and quality of the candle for longer.


If you notice any black residue on the inside of the glass container, gently wipe it off with a damp cloth. This will keep your candle looking clean and fresh.

Benefits of Proper Care

By following these tips for wood wick care, you can enjoy a longer-lasting and more fragrant candle experience. Proper care will also ensure a safer and more enjoyable burning process
