Once the formula of the candle is complete, it is then time for the step of testing for the right wick.
Certain wicks may not burn as well as others depending on the final make-up of the candle. Be sure to read the full product description of our wicks before testing. (See the “Products Page” for further details.)
Several different wick types for each size candle should be tested.
The candle should cool overnight before lighting it. This allows for it to completely cool into its solid state.
