Wick Testing Soy Bliss / CB2 Wax & Crackle Wood Wicks

I'm currently testing Soy Bliss / CB 2 candle wax with Crackle Wood 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 Crackle Wood Wicks...
Wooden wicks are very easy to use and add a unique appeal to finished candles. Our wooden wicks are designed to burn cleanly, promoting a full melt pool and excellent scent throw. They come with stainless steel custom tabs, which prevent any wax discoloration. Wood wicks are known for their unique ‘crackle’ when burning in finished candles.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are Crackle Single .02/.375 (SMALL), Crackle Single .02/.5 (MEDIUM), Crackle Single .02/.625 (LARGE), Crackle Single .03/.375 (SMALL), Crackle Single .03/.5 (MEDIUM), and Crackle Single .03/.625 (LARGE).  I'm using our new Warm Sugar Cookie fragrance oil at 9% fragrance load.  I will allow it to cure for 2 weeks before testing them. I will keep you updated! The other items I used when testing are the high temp wick stickers and our candle wick trimmers.

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