WOODEN WICKS BOOSTER - MOM

€9,00 EUR



DESCRIPTION 

Wooden wicks create a unique horizontal flame. In larger diameter candles, wooden wicks can produce a full melt pool with only one wick eliminating the need to use multiple wicks (in most cases). Wooden wicks create an alluring crackling sound when burning for added ambiance. Being rigid, wooden wicks are very easy to use, saving time and money in production. There is no need to secure to a wick bar or dowels and no straightening is needed as there is with cotton wicks, which require a great deal of time to set up. Wooden wicks do not mushroom, have little to no carbon build-up, no debris and no sooting. Wooden wicks provide a modern, unique and more upscale look to enhance a candle’s value.

>> Wicks are sold without metal holders. You can buy them here.

CRACKLING BOOSTER WICK IS THE ORIGINAL BOOSTER WICK FITTED WITH A 5MM BOOSTER WICK.

Brown wood can discolor waxes due to a high level of natural tannins. The crackling sound, the hotter burning, and the darker color of the wood, which can stain the wax, are caused by the tannin, a naturally occurring substance in wood that is accumulated by some trees. Tannins are phenolic compounds of plant origin, which have many hydroxy groups, which accumulate in various parts of the plant - bark, wood, leaves, fruit.

    Indicative inner diameters for wooden wicks „Lumetique Crackling Booster Wick with soy or rapeseed /coconut  in container candles as a starting point

    When using rapeseed/coconut wax blend you might need at least 1 size smaller wick.

    Fragrance oil content and type can change the burning diameter of the wick, e. g. the wick therefore will burn weaker or stronger. We recommend that you carry out a  burning test first

    • Wicks are sold in packets of 10 items. 
    • Wicks are sold without metal holders. Those are offered as accessories separately 

    Unlike conventional cotton wick holders, wooden wick holders can be reused because they are not deformed when the wick is attached to them. You can reuse them so buy only as many holders as you need and reuse the available ones.

    Wicks LA, LB, LC are 152.4 mm in length, just cut this wick in half and you are ready to make two 30 cl candles.

    Wicks LD are 127 mm in length, just cut this wick and suit in a 30 cl glass and a 250 ml tin and you are ready to make two candles.

    Wooden wicks do not self-trim - if the flame becomes too tall after burning for 4 hours, it is time to trim  Your wick. 

    It is advisable to use 6% of fragrance oil concentration to wax mass in order to avoid any side effects of the burning process (when the flame is too high, too many black specs in the wax, wax is burning too fast, poor hot throw of the fragrance oil, very hot jar that is impossible to touch).
