Wooden Wick Candle Care

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

Here are our tips and tricks to get the most out of your Spiritual Secrets candle:

  1. 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 (we suggest a wick trimmer!).

  2. 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.

  3. Once you allow the wax melt across the candle please ensure to take out your crystals before continuing to burn your candle. If you don't this will result in the wax not being able to melt across the entire diameter of the candle causing tunneling.
