Wick Testing Coco 83 Wax & Premier Wicks

I'm currently testing Coco 83 candle wax with Premier candle wicks.  I'm hoping that this will be helpful to some when narrowing down which wicks to use.  Feel free to adjust based on your wax/vessel/fragrance oil combo.  I'm using a vessel that's 3-1/8" inner diameter at the top, so if yours is smaller, you will want to wick down.  It's best to test a couple wick sizes in a few wick series or brands to see what you like the best!  Feel free to reach out to me anytime if you have any questions at all.  I'm here to help. 

The Premier 700 series wicks are flat braided cotton core wicks made from textile-grade cotton. They are designed to promote clean burning and minimize mushrooming from carbon buildup.  These are great wicks for coconut blended waxes because they don't burn too hot!  We have Premier Wicks Sample Packs available where you receive 5 of each of the 25 different sizes available.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are Premier 750 (single wick), Premier 755 (single wick), Premier 760 (single wick), and Premier 765 (single wick).  I'm using 9% fragrance load.  I will allow it to cure for 2 weeks before testing them. I will keep you updated! 

If you've found a combination that works for you, please feel free to share your results below.
