If you don't have a fireplace for making a cozy fire of wooden logs, the next best thing are candles with wooden wicks. Compared to cotton wicks, wooden wicks:
Make a wider flame.
Burn more slowly.
Disperse the candle scent better.
And, best of all, they crackle just like a real fire when you burn them. So relaxing!
I started making candles at the end of 2018. Each one is hand-poured and comes in a candle jar with a lid. They sell out as fast as I can make them, so if you can't find them in my online store, shoot me an email if you want one and we'll work out the size, scent, and color.
How To Burn a Candle
Once your candle's lit, don't blow it out until the top layer of wax has melted all the way across to the edges of the jar. This might take several hours. If you blow it out before it reaches the jar edges, a tunnel forms and the wick sinks lower and lower and gets more difficult to light.
