What are Crackling Candles? What Makes WoodWick Candles Crackle?

A particular type of highly fragranced jar candle uses a natural wooden wick to produce the soothing sound of a crackling fire. These candles have a long burn life and great fragrance throw. For instance, a medium-sized (9.7 oz.) jar candle can burn and fill a room with fragrance for up to 100 hours while large sized (21.5 oz.) candles can burn up to 180 hours. At The Wood Gifts, we offer a wide range of WoodWick candles to be­­autify your living spaces.

Why Woodwick Candles Crackle

WoodWick candle wicks are made of wood as opposed to cotton string often used in other types of candles. As a result, the candle emits a crackling sound similar in nature to a fireplace with wood logs, which creates a pleasant and appealing effect.

WoodWick crackling candles come in a range of different fragrances that appeal to both men and women. The popular options include Vanilla Bean, Fireside, Cinnamon Chai, and Frasier Fir. Trilogy candles containing three layers of complementary fragrances have become popular for gift giving and for those wanting to try new scents.

Looking at the Difference Between WoodWick and Cotton Wick Candles

Historically wood wicks have come into the mix quite late when you look at how long candles have been around. The original candle was crafted some 3000 years before we switched to the calendar we know today. It’s no surprise that Romans were at the inception of the first candles. They used papyrus to develop a sort of wooden wick, but soon changed to braided wicks of cotton, tallow, and hemp to produce a more consistent burn.

However, in 2001 technology caught up and wood wicks hit the market again to produce crackling candles, a feature that plays on all the senses while the candle burns. In fact, the crackling aspect of WoodWick Candles is noted as the top reason for purchasers wanting to buy a wooden wick candle. How big is this? 96% of purchasers said that crackling wick candles are more calming than the cotton wick candles they’ve previously purchased, and that they are big contributors to creating a more enriched ambience.

Other advantages to having a wood wicks over cotton wicks is that they burn with more coverage and more efficiently. Because the base of wood wicks is larger than cotton wicks, they have a higher burn rate and more contact with the wax.

Crackling candles are also easier to use because they are rigid and in a fixed position. You’ll never have to maneuver a wooden wick out from the wax or get your fingers blackened with soot due to rearranging it. Just light and enjoy the sweet sounds provided by this crackling candle.

Once again, wood wick candles burn more evenly, providing another bit of value to an already valuable product.
