Frequently asked questions

Wood Wicks candle, won’t stay lit, why?

Wooden wicks burn a bit differently than traditional cotton wicks do, and there are a few common issues that cause them to not stay lit. Please do not worry, if our wood wick candle won’t stay lit it’s probably because the wick is too long, or it needs to be trimmed clean of charred material( once burned) Please be reminded that it’s not the wood fueling the candle’s flame, it’s the wax. The flame is drawing the wax upwards through the wick, so if it’s not trimmed short and clean, the wax can’t make it to the flame. For optimal burn, please keep your wood wick trimmed to about ⅛” - this is shorter than you might think the wick should be.
