Article: Wick Testing Soy 10 Wax & HTP Wicks

Wick Testing Soy 10 Wax & HTP Wicks

I'm currently testing Soy 10 candle wax with HTP 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. 

About HTP Wicks...
The HTP wick is flat braided in design, but with thin paper filaments intertwined. The result is a cleaner-burning, self-trimming wick with additional structural strength, controlled curling, and a hotter, more efficient flame.  Combined with our high melt wax coating, the HTP wick is an excellent alternative in hard to burn application and is a good all-around choice for vegetable wax candles that require hotter burn conditions.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are HTP 83 (single wick), and HTP 93 (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.
