Wood wicks are used differently than regular cotton wicks and I will highlight a few tips to maximize the usage and durability of your candle. Your wick will be able to burn better and be consumed completely.
The wood wick must be very short at all times. This may seem unusual, but this aspect is very important.
Before relighting your wood wick, make sure you have removed the blackened wood. The latter is composed of the ashes of the wick. However, the candle will not be able to relight without removing this small part. Use the beveled scissors to cut the wick or a handkerchief then pinch the blackened end.
You may have to light the wick several times before the wood ignites. It's a bit like a campfire. You have to give the wood time to catch fire. We advise you to tilt the candle slightly and light it with the lighter, holding the flame on the wood wick for a few seconds.
Very important : the candle should not be close to a fan or a draft. The air will blow on the wick and cause it to go out...
