WOOD WICK Vs COTTON WICK
FEATURES & BENEFITS
The evolution of candles is truly fascinating. What was once an ancient day necessity has now become a modern-day luxury and the variety of options to choose from is nearly unlimited.
Inspired by the familiar warmth of a wood burning fireplace, Light & Glo wood wick candles create a multi-sensory experience, both auditory and olfactory!
WOOD WICKS CRACKLE
Wood wicks have a distinct crackling sound when burning. In a consumer-based study, the crackling aspect was noted as the top reason for wanting to purchase a wood wick candle.
WOOD WICKS Provide a longer & cleaner burn
Wood wicks combined with our use of 100% soy wax ensure that you get a longer burn time per gram of wax with your Light & Glo candle.
WOOD WICKS RELEASE FRAGRANCE BETTER AND FASTER
In a thermocouple burn test between a wood wick vs cotton wick candle, results showed that the wide based wood wicks diffuse heat more rapidly into the wax. So what does this mean? Your hot throw is going to be on fire! Not literally, it will be awesome.
WOOD WICKS CREATE A RELAXING AMBIENCE
In another consumer facing study, a whopping 96% of consumers said that wood wick candles are more calming vs their cotton wick counterparts, and 92% of consumers stated that wood wick candles create more ambience.
The numbers don’t lie, folks!
WOOD WICKS ARE ECO-FRIENDLY
Being eco-friendly is at the core of who we are as a company. Everything right down to our packaging is carefully selected to make as little impact on our beloved earth as possible.
WOOD WICKS BURN MORE EVENLY
Since wood wicks are wide based wicks, they are able to create large, even melt pools. Wood wicks create shorter and wider flame heights, which keeps them safe for use.
Also, wood wicks don’t ‘mushroom’ the way cotton wicks do! That means minimal carbon build up and minimal debris and sooting.
WOOD WICKS ARE VISUALLY APPEALING
They produce a distinctive flat horizontal flame, which give a modern and uncommon quality to your candle that you won’t find in a cotton wick.
WOOD WICKS CREATE VALUE
At this point you may be asking yourself what all this great new information means for you. To put it simply, wood wicks add value to your candle through their crackling ambiance, enhanced burn performance, and modern appeal.
WOOD WICKS ARE TRENDING
In a recent blog post, the National Candle Association listed wood wicks as one of the top candle trends to look out for in 2019. What better choice than the only multi award winning Light & Glo candle which is handpoured to perfection in Melbourne.
