Your Ultimate Candle Wick Guide

Hi Handmakers!

This is an upgrade from our previous ‘Types of Wicks and Which to Use for Candle Making‘ post as we’ve decided to give it a little makeover 😊 Of course, you can still refer to our 2020 post if you prefer that. We will keep both versions of our candle wick guide updated as we bring in new wicks to our store or remove any from our current catalogue.

*PS: Measurements in centimeters are direct conversions of inches (1 inch = 2.54cm) so the numbers are specific, but feel free to round them up or down, depending on which is closer.

Note:
This post is merely a guideline. Please keep in mind that there are many factors that can affect candle making, ranging from type of fragrance oil used, type of wax, diameter of jar, curing period, presence of additives and more.Β Even if you get the right wick for your jar, other factors can affect a candle as well.
