In this post we'll discover the the magic of wooden wick candles, exploring the benefits, the science behind the crackle, and how these relaxing candles can enhance your home.

The Relaxing Candles.

A wooden wick candle provides you with a multi sensory experience that goes beyond a regular scented candle. Their distinct features make them a popular choice for todays candle lovers.

  • Soothing Crackle: The soft crackling sounds of wooden wick candles mimics the sound of a log fire, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. This extra dimension to a scented candle evokes feelings of relaxation and calm.

  • Wider Flame and Superior Fragrance: The flame of a wooden wick is not just visually appealing but also gives a strong fragrance throw by releasing the fragrance evenly and effectively.

  • Eco Friendly: Kind Melts source their wooden wicks from FSC certified wood sources, making them a more eco conscious choice for scented candles.

What makes wooden wick candles crackle?

The crackling sound of a wooden wick is caused by the way wood burns.

As the flame heats the wooden wick, the moisture in the wood evaporates creating air pockets. These air pockets expand and burst creating the crackling sound. The wax and fragrance used in the candle can also impact the amount of crackle your candle emits.

How to light a wooden wick candle.

Lighting a wooden wick candle is slightly different to a regular candle.

  • Trim the wick: Before lighting your wooden wick candle, ensure your wick is trimmed to about 3-5mm. This will ensure a clean burn and prevent the flame from being either to large or too small. If there is any charred wood remove this before lighting, charred wood will not relight.

  • Lighting a wooden wick: Slightly tilt the candle and apply the match flame ( or candle lighter) to the top surface of the wick. Keep the flame across the wick for a few seconds, wooden wicks can take a bit longer to ignite.

Top Tip

  • Burning time: On first use ensure you burn your candle for long enough to prevent tunneling, You should aim to burn the candle until the top of the wax is melted this usually takes around 2-4 hours. Candles should not be burned for longer than 4 hours at a time.
