From the creator of Āhuru Candles:

"I spent most of my childhood growing up in New Zealand, surrounded by lush greens, colourful flowers, and blue skies, and I missed being in touch with nature again while I lived overseas."

Āhuru was born from my vision to help people create such beautiful moments in life, as well as to enhance our well-being through the use of all-natural products from Mother Earth."

What are Woodwick Candles?

What are Woodwick Candles?

Woodwick candles are candles that are made with a natural wooden wick. This wooden wick creates a crackling sound when it burns, similar to a wood fire. The natural wooden wick burns cleanly and slowly, making Woodwick candles long-lasting and efficient.

How is it made? and is it better than cotton wicks?

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.

Benefits of Woodwick Candles

Woodwick candles offer a range of benefits beyond just adding fragrance to your home. They can help to create a relaxing and soothing atmosphere, promote feelings of well-being, and even improve air quality. The crackling sound that Woodwick candles make is a unique feature that many people find soothing and relaxing.

Why Woodwick Candles are Better than Traditional Candles

Woodwick candles are considered to be better than traditional candles for several reasons. They burn cleaner and slower than traditional candles, making them more efficient. Additionally, the crackling sound of the wooden wick creates a unique and soothing ambiance. Also, Ahuru candles are made with essential oils, which have therapeutic properties and are better for your health than synthetic fragrances.

Woodwick Candles are safe

Our premium, all-natural woodwicks are made from native sappy fruit trees and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified mills in the USA. They are 100% natural and non-toxic.
When trimmed properly, a woodwick candle creates a cleaner burn and less black smoke compared to standard cotton wicks.

Woodwick candles have a better burn time

We tested numerous wooded wicks to ensure they light up easily and last long long for our essential oil candles. Because of the lower and wider flame, Wooden wicks tend to burn longer than cotton, also producing an aesthetically appealing flame!
