Article: Wick Testing Coco Apricot / Ceda Serica Wax & LX Wicks

Wick Testing Coco Apricot / Ceda Serica Wax & LX Wicks

I'm currently testing Coco Apricot / Ceda Serica candle wax with LX 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.  I will mention that this vessel tapers inward towards the bottom to about 2.5" across. 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. 

LX wicks are braided, coreless, flat wicks manufactured with stabilizing threads that ensure an optimum burn profile. The allows for a very stable and consistent flame, which minimizes, or eliminates, mushrooming / carbon buildup while reducing smoke and soot.  These wicks are similar to Premier wicks in that they don't burn too hot. 

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are LX 14 (single wick), LX 16 (single wick), LX 18 (single wick), and LX 20 (single wick).  I'm using our Cashmere fragrance oil at 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.

Ceda Serica 3-1/8"@ Top, 2.5" @ Bottom LX 14 (Single Wick) 9% Cashmere So far this seems to be the best. No soot and even burn for the most part. I'm about 2/3 of the way through the vessel.  Yayy, this one for the win.  No soot and a nice, clean even burn.
