The Longevity of Candles with Wooden Wicks

The Longevity of Candles with Wooden Wicks

When it comes to purchasing candles, there are a few things to consider: fragrance, ambiance, and of course, price. But have you ever stopped to think about the longevity of your candle? How many hours of burn time are you getting for your money? If you're looking for a candle that will last longer and provide more value, candles with wooden wicks are the way to go.

Wooden wicks have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. They offer a unique crackling sound and a wider flame that provides a warm and cozy atmosphere. But what many people don't realise is that wooden wicks also burn longer than traditional cotton wicks, providing more burn time and ultimately, more value.

The reason for this is simple. Wooden wicks are wider than cotton wicks, which means they can hold more wax and burn for a longer period of time. Additionally, wooden wicks are made from natural materials such as cherry wood, which is more durable than cotton. This means that the wick won't break or disintegrate as easily, allowing the candle to burn for a longer period of time.

But how much longer can you expect your candle to burn with a wooden wick? On average, candles with wooden wicks can burn up to 50% longer than those with cotton wicks. This means that if you purchase a candle with a wooden wick, you can expect to get more burn time for your money.

It's important to note that the longevity of your candle also depends on other factors, such as the quality of the wax and the size of the candle. However, by choosing a candle with a wooden wick, you're already taking a step in the right direction towards getting more value for your money.

In addition to their longer burn time, candles with wooden wicks also offer a variety of other benefits. They produce less soot and smoke than traditional cotton wicks, which means they're a better option for those with allergies or respiratory issues. They also provide a unique and cozy ambiance that can't be replicated with traditional cotton wicks.
