The Biggest Innovation In Candle Making, The Ultimate Wood Wick

For the last two years, we have tirelessly tested wood wicks in pursuit of a better product for our candle makers. Our goal was to address the demand for an even cleaner burning, more consistently performing wick at a reduced price point. 

After countless variations, we finally deemed one wood wick superior to all others. Drumroll please...introducing the ultimate wood wick!

The ultimate wood wick checks every box and is suitable to use with most wax types and vessel diameters. It's the most consistent performing wood wick to ever hit the market!

what is the ultimate wood wick? 

The ultimate wood wick is a newly developed wood wick by makesy that you're going to love making candles with.

The flat crackling wick has a channel engraved down the center of the wick which helps direct the flow of fuel and make it burn more consistently.


what makes it so special?

The exclusive patented technology is 26% more consistent in average flame height and reduces fuel consumption by 33%.

The result is increased burn time and 75% less visible soot when compared to our crackling booster wood wick. 

The best part is that, due to improvements in manufacturing processes, the cost of the ultimate wood wick is 11% less than the comparable crackling booster! That means more money in your bank account and reinvested back into your biz.

The ultimate wood wick is also made from FSC-certified wood, a trusted checkpoint that verifies its sustainably sourced.

ultimate wood wick for candle making

how is it different from booster wicks?

While our booster wicks work well, the flame has to overcome the natural patterns within the wood.

Our new ultimate wood wicks are designed with a channel down the middle which improves the burn performance of the wick despite the naturally occurring patterns in the wood. 


how we tested it

Our vigorous testing was completed by a third-party verified by CDAS labs with fully automated and state of the art equipment. 

We tested the ultimate wood wick side by side against cotton wicks, single-ply wood wicks, and booster wood wicks. The ultimate wood wick was 26% more consistent in flame height and had a 75% reduction in visible soot compared to our booster wick.
