Wood Wick

Our Mexican Sugar Mold Candles are made with high quality beeswax, essential oils, and are centered with a wood wick. When you light a wood wick candle, you’re setting the stage for a unique sensory experience that goes beyond just scent. The gentle crackling sound of the wood wick as it burns adds a cozy ambiance to your space, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. This soothing sound can be especially beneficial for relaxation, meditation, or simply unwinding after a long day.

Wood wick candles are known for their extended burn time in comparison to traditional cotton wick candles. Crafted from sustainable materials like cherry wood, the wooden wick burns steadily and evenly, providing a longer-lasting candle experience. This feature not only adds value to the candle but also allows you to relish its fragrance for an extended period.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal and extended burn time, our Mexican Sugar Mold Wood Wick candles are crafted from high-quality bees wax, which burns cleaner than paraffin wax, reducing indoor air pollution. This makes them a healthier choice for you and the environment. So, when you choose our wood wick candle, you’re not just indulging in a luxurious experience – you’re also making a mindful choice for your well-being and the planet.
