3 Things We Want You to Know About Wooden Wicks 

Wooden wicks are a signature part of every candle here at Dreamy Gallery Candle Co, but many of you may be wondering why we chose this type of wick. Other than being incredibly aesthetic, there are a few benefits of using wooden wicks. But first, what is a wooden wick?

What is a Wooden Wick?

A wooden wick is a thin slab of wood created especially for candle making. They give off a beautiful crackling sound that will remind you of nights by the fire. 

3 Benefits of Using Wooden Wick Candles

So let’s get into it! Here are three benefits of using wooden wicks in our soy wax candles:

Promotes a Relaxed Ambiance 

When lit, wooden wicks will give off soft popping and crackling sounds, similar to sounds given off by a warm fireplace. These pleasant sounds are both relaxing and add to the warm, welcoming glow of the candle. A candle that perfectly contributes to any ambiance is our I AM WORTHY candle. You’ll enjoy the ambiance given off by its gentle scents of cactus and sea salt. 

Wooden Wicks are Sustainable 

We love our planet, and we want to do our part to ensure that we help keep it safe. Wooden wicks are harvested using environmentally friendly methods. Not to mention that just one tree can provide thousands of wooden wicks!  When combined with our soy wax bases, you can rest assured that our candles are eco-friendly. 

Provide Even Burns for Candles 

No one enjoys a sooty candle. Not only does it ruin the look of your candle, but carbon soot buildup from cotton wicks can release unwelcome contaminants into your air. 

Wooden wicks allow our candles to burn evenly and prevent them from having that unwelcome “mushroom cloud” look. When burning wooden wick candles, simply give them a trim every now and again to get a clean burn every time. 

But don't get me wrong that doesn't mean I don't like or use cotton wicks, you just need to find the right one.
