What are Woodwicks?


Our premium, all-natural woodwicks are made from native sappy fruit trees and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified mills in the USA. 

Cotton wicks are braided cotton strands dipped in wax but do not give off the distinctive crackling sounds of a cozy fireplace like wood wicks do, producing a beautiful effect and mood. The beautiful aroma wood wicks produce can also provide a relaxing atmosphere after a long day at work.

Are woodwick candles toxic or better?

Wood wicks are safe

 Obtained from sustainable forests, our wooden wicks are 100% natural, non-toxic, clean-burning, and eco-friendly. 

When trimmed properly, a woodwick candle creates a cleaner burn and no black smoke compared to standard cotton wicks.

Woodwick candles have better burn time

Wooden wicks tend to burn longer than cotton, also producing a aesthetically  appealing flame. 

Our small and large soy candles have a burn time range between 35 and 65 hours.

Woodwicks have better throw

Wooden wicks create a horizontal and broader flame that throws more heat into your candle quicker. Candles using wood wicks also displace scent much better than cotton wicks, allowing fragrances to enter your home quicker.

Our wood wick candles are easy to light up!

Woodwicks are known to be a little harder to light up and keep the wick lit for a long enough time. 

Our new Ahuru candles are made with wooden wicks that create a tear-shaped flame, which doesn't 'drown' in the wax like many other wood wick candles.

You can check our Candle Care section to better look after your precious woodwick soy candles.
