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!

When making 3oz. votive candles what size wick would I use? I'm using paraffin wax

Hello Gwendolyn,

The melt point of the wax will have an influence on which wick to choose, but generally the RRD-29 or the RRD-34 are going to be the best when making votives with a paraffin wax.

Thank you!

I have tried the eco series 14 with an 8 oz container but I smell the burning wick/burning paper smell. Can you recommend an option that does not produce a smell of its own?

Hi Brenna,

The other series of wicks we might recommend with Soy wax would be the RRD. A wick that is close to the size of the ECO-14 would be either the RRD-50 or the RRD-55.

Thank you!
