Wooden wicks provide a beautiful ambiance, but they do burn differently than standard wicks. 

1) To ensure an even burn for the life of your candles, the first burn is important. Light the wick across the candle as opposed to at only one end. Let the candle burn until the wax melts out to the edges of the container. You may have to let it burn anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Even if the flame appears to burn low at times, it will continue to burn. (You do not need to do this with every use).

2) For optimal burn, keep your wood wick trimmed to about ⅛”, and clean off any burnt wood from previous use. If you don’t have a wick trimmer, use an old set of nail clippers.

3) If your wood wick or jar candle has developed some tunnelling from shorter burns, you can usually fix it - here’s how:

First and best option: if your candle will stay lit, give it a good long burn until all the wax is melted to the edge of the jar, and you’ve effectively “reset” the memory of the wax. 

Second option: If your candle won’t stay lit because it is “drowning” in a wax pool, try using a paper towel or napkin to soak up some of the excess wax.

Then wait for a minute or so, relight your candle, and repeat until your wick has room to breathe!
