The Benefits of Wooden Wick Candles: Why They're Better than Traditional Wicks

Candles have been used for centuries as a source of light and fragrance. However, have you ever stopped to consider the type of wick you are using? Traditional cotton wicks have been the norm for so long, but it's time to shake things up and move on to something better: wooden wicks !!! Although it may seem like just a small change, it makes a world of difference in the burn time, fragrance throw and of course the added bonus of that lovely crackling sound. In this post, we'll explore the benefits of wooden wick candles and why they are worth considering as an upgrade over the traditional cotton wick option.

• One of the biggest benefits of wooden wick candles is the unique crackling sound they make as they burn. This is due to the wood fibers burning along with the wax and creates an ambiance reminiscent of a cozy wood fire. 

• Additionally, wooden wicks tend to have a better burn time than cotton wicks, which is great if you're looking for a candle that lasts longer.

• The fragrance throw of wooden wick candles is also improved due to the wider wick, which helps the candle to burn more evenly and hot, releasing the fragrances into the air more effectively. 

• Another benefit to wooden wick candles is that they are often made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials, such as FSC certified wood. Choosing FSC certified wooden wick candles, like the ones we offer, helps ensure that the wood is responsibly sourced from managed forests and supports the conservation of wildlife, biodiversity, and local communities.

So, what's the big deal about wooden wick candles? Well, for starters, the crackling sound is pretty cozy. Plus, you'll get a longer burn time and better fragrance throw. Oh, and let's not forget that they're often made with eco-friendly materials, like FSC certified wood.
