Our Leading Wick Series by Type

Aroma-Lite® Wick series are self-trimming cored wicks specifically engineered to burn in candle systems with high levels of fragrance.

Bleached Square Wick series was originally designed for beeswax candles. Although used in all types of candles today, the unique wick construction of this series combined with our chemical treatment processes makes this an excellent choice for systems using waxes that are highly viscous when molten, such as beeswax and vegetable wax.

Helix Wick series was engineered by braiding two Aroma-Lite® wicks together with intent to develop a wick that can burn in the more difficult candle systems with high levels of fragrance. These wicks overcome the often-difficult situation of achieving a large wax pool with a singular wick system. Helix wicks are unique in construction as they are reinforced with a paper core that delivers style and performance different than any other wick in the market.

Burn Testing

Testing should be conducted under careful observation in an area away from combustible materials. Safety glasses should be worn at all times. Avoid contact with flame, fuel pool, or other surfaces that may be hot. Keep clothing, hair, etc. away from contact with the flame. Do not burn in drafts. When directed, keep wick trimmed to 1/4”. Always keep children and pets safely away from burning candles. The burn area should be well ventilated, and a Class B or Class ABC fire extinguisher should be readily available. Never leave a burning candle unattended. When dictated by the nature of the candle system, use appropriate flame-resistant candle holders, and ensure that the candle fits properly into the holder.
