Candle Wick Care by Door County Candle Company

Candle wick care is important to your candles and home.

Wick care…is about as exciting as watching paint dry, however it’s important to understand what it means and how to achieve proper wick care. In the end, much like a new paint job helps you enjoy a room or a home, proper wick care will help you enjoy your candles (and will protect that new paint job!).

Door County Candle Company's Candle Scents without Lighting the Candle with Warmers and Melting Chips

Sometimes you want a scent in a place where you simply can’t have candles (dorm rooms, office buildings, condos, apartments, etc.). We have a few solutions for that! The first solution is using a warmer/melting pot with scented wax chips. We make scented wax chips (the same fragrances as our candles) that can go into a warmer/melting pot. Melting pots are really clever little contraptions. Some are heated by high wattage light bulbs, while others have a long life heating element (I’ve had one in our store for 10 years and it’s still going strong!!) By simply placing a few scented wax chips into a burner you can get scent into your room without lighting a candle.

What's your favorite candle scent?

“What’s your favorite candle scent?” If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me that, I’d be able to stop selling candles. I could retire to a nice beach where the sun always shines. Alas I don’t get a dollar every time I’m asked that, so I guess I’ll just have to answer!
