Wick Placement 101: For Long Burn and Safety

When it comes to enjoying the warm glow of your Sand Candles, proper wick placement is essential for both maximizing burn time and ensuring safety. 

At Candella, we believe in providing you with the tools you need to make the most of your sand candles. That's why every purchase of our sand candles includes a pack of wicks, each sized at 15cm. These wicks are designed to be trimmed to fit your specific container size, allowing for optimal performance and safety.

To achieve the best burn and ensure safety, follow these simple wick placement instructions:

  1. Trim the Wick: Start by trimming the wick to fit your container. Using scissors or wick trimmers, cut the wick to the appropriate length, ensuring it is no longer than 1/4" above the surface of the candle.
  2. Place the Wick: Once trimmed, carefully place the wick in the center of the candle, ensuring it is positioned upright and straight. For optimal performance, the top of the wick should be approximately 1/4" above the surface of the candle.
  3. Test the Placement: Before lighting the candle, double-check the wick placement to ensure it is centered and positioned correctly. This will help prevent uneven burning and potential safety hazards.

By following these simple wick placement guidelines, you can ensure that your sand candles burn evenly, last longer, and provide a safe and enjoyable experience every time you light them. Remember, proper wick placement is key to getting the most out of your candles.
