Wood wick candle is a type of candle that uses a wick made of wood instead of the traditional cotton wick. Wood wicks are known to produce a crackling sound when they burn, which some people find relaxing. Wood wicks are also known to produce less soot than cotton wicks. Wood wicks can be made from a variety of different woods and are non toxic including but not limited to maple, birch, cherry, oak, and poplar. The type of wood used in the wick can affect the smell of the candle, as well as the color of the flame. Wood wicks are becoming increasingly popular in the candle industry, as they offer a unique experience that traditional candles cannot. Wood wick candles burn slowly and evenly, produce a beautiful flickering flame, and make a soothing crackling sound when they are burning. These candles also come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and scents to suit any preference.
How To Make A Wood Wick Candle?
There are several ways to make a soy wax candle using natural materials Fragrance oil is an essential ingredient in many candles, and they play an important role in the overall fragrance of the candle. Melt soy wax with either vegetable or animal-based heat. Soy wax is vegan, but you can use beeswax if you want to include honey in the candle. Make your own wicks out of cotton, flax, hemp, kenaf, and other plants. Just be sure to soak them in water for a few minutes before using them so that they don’t catch on fire. Use a glass jar filled with hot water and melted soy wax to create a warm melt-and-pour candle. This is the method that I prefer because it's easy and mess-free.
The steps to making this candle are as follows:
- Melt your soy wax according to the instructions on the package. You can use a double boiler or microwave to do this. Make sure that the soy wax is melted completely before proceeding.
- Remove the wick from the burned-out candles you used for testing and cut off about 1 inch of it. This will be the wick for your new candles.
- melt your beeswax according to the instructions on the package and pour it into a predetermined location on your wooden Wick. Make sure that there is enough beeswax so that it forms a continuous ring around the wood Wick. If there isn't enough beeswax, add more until there is an even coating all around the wood Wick.
- Once everything is melted and mixed together, dip your prepared wooden Wick into the wax mixture.
