How to Burn Your Anchored Northwest Woodwick Candles

Wondering how to burn your woodwick, 100% soy wax candle from Anchored Northwest? Here's how to do it safely and easily!

To ensure your candles burn clean and last longer, keep the wick trimmed to its original height of 3/16" or 1/4" before each lighting. Wood wicks produce an ashy top and if the ashy top becomes too long, the wick will not light or stay lit.

Typically, it's best to remove the ashy top every 1-2 burns. Wood wicks may require multiple relights.

It's best to burn your candles a minimum of 2 hours and no longer than 5 hours at one time.

Always burn your candle to the outside of the container to avoid tunneling.

And most of all... enjoy your candle!

Why Woodwick Candles?

Wood wicks burn slower and longer than cotton wick soy candles, by up to 25%, giving you more bang for your buck. Additionally, wood wicks burn hotter for more smell power, leading to a more fragrant candle.

Wood wicks have nearly zero carbon buildup and therefore no soot. Wood wicks require less trimming than a cotton wick and our wood wicks are harvested in sustainable forests right here in the USA.

And of course...the CRACKLE! In other words, wood wicks are cooler than cotton wicks. 

What does "hand poured" mean?

Hand-poured means our candles are made the old-fashioned way: we take the time and care with our own two hands! 

Everything at Anchored Northwest is done by hand in the great Pacific Northwest - from the wicking of your cedar wick to the pouring of your 100% soy wax candle. 

Our 100% soy wax candles contain no dyes or stearic acid. All scents are a fragrance and essential oil blend and always phthalate-free.
