Wick sizing is always the biggest challenge to making candles. The type and melt point of the wax you are using, the diameter of the finished candle and even the color/fragrance can be a variable in determining the proper wick. Using the proper wick will reduce the smoking, sooting and other negative properties of the candle burning.  The charts on our Candle Wicks Offered page can serve as a starting point to determine which wick will work properly in your application.  In addition, the Advice on Selecting a Candle Wick article in our Newsletter can also help you choose the proper wick. The video is only intended to help identify wicks that can be used for that application.

The best type of wick will depend on the wax you are using, but we would recommend testing the ECO-12 or the ECO-14.

I recently poured beeswax and because the pour temp was high it apparently melted the glue dot I had used. What do you recommend for beeswax and a high temperature pour?

Hi Susan,

For best results we would recommend pre-heating your container and pouring at around 150F.

Thank you!
