Wooden Wick Care

Wooden wicks are a bit different from traditional cotton wicks- they burn longer, cleaner, and have a cozy crackling ambiance, but they do require a bit of extra care.  

Here are our tips and tricks to get the most out of your Octavia candle:
Always trim your wick before each use, removing all charred wood from previous burns. If you don’t, the wick may not stay lit long enough to fuel the flame, causing it to extinguish itself. To trim a wooden wick remove all charred wood (either with a wick trimmer or simply by pinching it with your fingers).
Make sure to allow the wax to melt across the entire diameter of your candle on the first burn - this helps prevent tunneling, which can impact how well the candle burns. These two simple tips will help your candle burn clean and long for the entire life of your wooden wick candle.
