5 Benefits of Candles with Wood Wicks

But, believe it or not, it's a big deal! It influences the feel, the smell, and the overall vibe you get from your candle. While most are familiar with cotton wick candles, there's a new trend that's making waves and capturing hearts: wood wick candles.

Here at Mountain Top Candle Shop in Cookeville, Tennessee, we're all about giving you the best candle moments. We're super excited about our wood wick candles and think they're something special. If you're new to the concept of wood wicks, here are some reasons they're becoming a favorite among those seeking a healthy, safe, and all-natural candle option.

1. The "Crackle" Effect

When you light a wood wick candle, you're in for a treat. Alongside the gentle glow, there's a soothing crackling sound, reminiscent of a cozy campfire. It's more than just a visual treat; it's an auditory experience that transports you closer to nature.

2. More Burn for Your Buck

It's a simple joy to find that your beloved candle lasts just a tad longer. With wood wick candles, the burn is slower compared to cotton wicks, ensuring you enjoy the calming scent and ambiance for extended periods.

3. Clean and Non-Toxic Burn

The allure of candles isn't just in their scent but also in the purity of their burn. Wood wick candles produce less soot, ensuring the air remains cleaner, making them a popular choice among those prioritizing a non-toxic environment.

4. Sustainable and Eco-Friendly

Our choices reflect our values. Wood wicks, sourced from sustainable forests, resonate with those who prioritize eco-friendly products. A single tree can produce countless wicks, making your candle choice an ode to nature.

5. Perfect Melt Pool

Uneven melting can be a downer with candles. With wood wicks, the burn is even, melting the wax uniformly and ensuring you get a consistent scent release throughout the candle's life.
