What are everyones thoughts on wood wicks for candles?
Personally I don't like them, but know a ton of people who do. For me the results are way to inconsistent to be of any real value to me. Same wax, size wick, scent, etc., same everything and if I make 5 candles, get 5 different results. It's too much for me. Some people I know can get them to work. However, I don't have the stamina to keep trying.
They are good for slow burning and tend to crackle. I like them for the crackle effect, but at 1502 we are only using cotton wicks.
Domt like them either, prefer to stick with cotton wicks.
I did not like the original wooden wicks at all. As others have said they were very inconsistent. I did love the "Ultimate" wood wick. But alas, legal issues. Poof they are gone. I haven't had the heart to fully test the new ones from the original wooden wick people.
The one thing that I had noticed about wooden wicks is that they are not scent dependent for sizing. But they don't always stay lit.
