Paper Core - Braided Wick Design - Great Scent Throw

How to Choose the Right Candle Wick - Chart & Guide

HELIX wicks are different than most other wicks on the market. These wicks are constructed with two Aroma-Lite wicks that are braided together with a paper core. This unique design was created as a solution for difficult-to-wick candles made with natural waxes and a high fragrance load. We carry all 12 sizes of HELIX Wicks.

For added rigidity, HELIX wicks come with a high-melt paraffin wax coating.

Product Features

  • Made with 100% natural fibers with a paper core.
  • Clean burning paraffin wax coating.
  • Perfect for single-wick containers that require a large melt pool.
  • Paper core helps create a larger melt pool without the flame getting too large.
  • Great for candles with a high fragrance load.

    Length: 6"

    Tab size: 20mm round base with a 6mm neck that helps stabilize the wick.

    What type of wick should I use?

    Our candle wicks are suitable for container candles and pillar candles. The type of wick you choose is mostly a matter of personal preference. We recommend reading the descriptions on the wick product pages to learn more about the properties of each wick.

    How do I choose the right size of candle wick?

    The appropriate wick size depends on numerous factors, including the size of your jar, the type of wax you’re using, fragrance load, the type of fragrance you’re using and more.

    Due to the number of factors that influence wick performance, it isn’t possible to provide a one-size-fits-all answer about choosing a wick. However, we do provide size guidelines on each wick product page. You can also refer to our Wick Size Chart, which includes recommendations based on the size of your container.

    How can I tell if I am using the right size of candle wick?

    Wicking a candle properly takes some trial and error. We recommend reading our blog How to Choose the Right Wick For Your Wax to learn more about wicking candles.

    How do I test candle wicks?

    Testing candle wicks involves making candles with different wick sizes to determine which wick provides the best burn. We provide a free printable Candle Testing Note Sheet that is helpful for keeping track of your test candles. For tips on using candle testing note sheets, check out this blog post.

    We recommend purchasing a wick sample pack when trying out a new type of candle wick. Our sample packs include 5 wicks of each size in the series.

    What kind of wax can I use with your wicks?

    Our wicks are suitable for any of our candle waxes, including Ceda Serica, EC-26, CB2, and Soy Wax Flakes. You can use our wicks with other candle waxes as well. We recommend testing your candle wicks each time you try a new wax (see questions above). For more information on our candle wax, view our Wax FAQ.

    What type of coating do your wicks have?

    Most of our wicks have a natural wax coating rather than a paraffin coating. Please view product pages for specific details on wick coatings. 

    Can I buy candle wicks in bulk?

    Yes! We have quantities from 10 wicks to 10,000+ wicks. You can order quantities of up to 5,000 wicks directly from most of our wick product pages. For quantities of 5,000+ wicks, please note that additional processing time may be required. Please contact us for product availability if you are concerned about longer lead times for orders of 5,000+ wicks.
