What is a Crackling Booster Wood Wick?
What in the world is a crackling booster wood wick you ask? The crackling booster wick is part of our adhered wood wick collection. Adhered wood wicks are created when attaching two or more wooden wicks together with a thin layer of non-toxic adhesive, making a single layered wick.
In the case of the crackling booster wick, a .020 (thickness) wick that is 3/16” in width is adhered vertically down the center length of a crackling wick. The crackling wick can be .020, .030 or .040 in thickness and comes in all standard widths.

So why use an crackling booster wood wick? Great question!
Depending on your wax blend, fragrance, and dye load, as well as the diameter of your candle, sometimes a single-ply wood wick is just not enough wick material for a proper burn.
Vegetable waxes (such as soy) and beeswax work well with a crackling booster wick. There is also the option of creating your own “booster wood wick” by putting two wicks together in the same wick clip.
