Wick Testing Coco Apricot / Ceda Serica Wax & Zinc Wicks
Zinc core wicks have a unique construction that provides maximum rigidity in a wide variety of candle waxes. The Zinc Core's jacket design is 100% all-natural and maintains unmatched rigidity in the molten wax pool. Zinc Core wicks are cotton braids with an inner zinc core (no lead alloys). Zinc core wicks are cooler burning reduce soot and mushrooming.
I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are Zinc 44-24-18 (single wick), Zinc 44-28-18 (single wick), Zinc 44-32-18 (single), and Zinc 51-32-18 (single wick). I'm using 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||3-1/8"||44-24-18||9%||Both this one and the 44-28-18 ended up working out really well for this vessel. No soot and nice clean burn.|

|This one worked out the least, still a cleaner burn but more soot / haze along the rim.|
