How do I choose the right wick for my candles?
In order to choose the proper wick for your candles, you will need to know the type of wax you are going to work with and the diameter of the candle vessel or mold you are going to use (the widest part if it tapers slightly). Once you have these 2 pieces of information, you can visit our wick chart for our wick recommendations.
While we are happy to provide wick recommendations, it is the responsibility of each customer to complete appropriate testing on all wick/candle formulations to ensure all candle safety and burn standards are met.
Do you have any waxes that can be used for molded candles?
- IGI 4625 Paraffin Wax
- Feather Palm Wax
- Votive/Pillar Soy Wax
How much wax will each of your fragrance oils scent?
We recommend adding approximately 1 ounce/30 ml of fragrance oil to every 1 pound of wax (1 pound of melted wax equals approximately 16 ounces/473 ml)
450 ml size will scent approximately 15 pounds of wax
250 ml size will scent approximately 8 pounds of wax
125 ml size will scent approximately 4 pounds of wax
30 ml size will scent approximately 1 pound of wax
(We say approximately because some people prefer to add more or less based on personal preference)
