Wick Size Chart

Testing is always recommended, the following are only suggestions to start with based on testing at sea level - higher elevations may require thicker wicks. Your results may vary. The information below is based on wax without scent or colour. Beeswax wick suggestions are based on clean, light to medium shade wax. Addition of fragrance oils & colouring may affect wick size. Test every new batch.
