Here at East Coast Candles, we use only the best quality materials in our Candles. The wick in your candle is the most important part. There are many wicks available on the market, and it’s important to have the right wick to match the wax and the size of the vessel, pillar or votive.
When choosing wick for a candle, we always test to ensure we have the right fit and proper burn. We want the flame to be large enough to ensure a large enough pool of wax across the top to eliminate tunneling and get the maximum hot scent throw.
All wick used in our candles is zinc, paper, or cotton cored. Zinc wicks have been tested and have been proven to not be harmful to consumers. We do not use lead core wick.
Be sure to keep your candle wick trimmed to 1/4 of an inch to avoid smoking/soot, maximum scent throw and burn time.
