Scented candles are one of life’s simple pleasures. Whether we place them around the bathtub while enjoying a luxurious bath, or simply keep one burning while we’re cuddled up watching a movie with a loved one, scented candles add a comforting, relaxing ambiance to any environment. However, not all scented candles are created equal. Like anything else, they range from cheap (and cheaply made) to extravagant and ridiculously expensive. I love having scented candles in my home, but I want to ensure that the ones I purchase are safe for my family and the environment. I’ve tried several different brands, and one that stands out among the rest is the WoodWick brand.
WoodWick candles are made by The Virginia Candle Company, which was founded in 1990 in Lynchburg, Virginia. The most notable feature about a WoodWick candle is the wooden wick, which intrigued me enough to purchase one. The wooden wick produces a pleasant crackling sound while burning, similar to the sound of a crackling fireplace. Since I don’t have a fireplace in my home, I found the WoodWick candles to be an affordable and fun alternative. WoodWick candles are highly fragranced and available as jars, pillars, or votives. You can choose from 1, 2, or 3 wick candles. There are multiple sizes and several speciality collections to choose from. The jar candles are the most popular, affordably priced at $9.99 for a small jar, $18.99 for a medium jar, and $24.99 for a large jar. Burn times range from 40 hours to 175 hours. The Geometric Collection features a geometric shaped finish and comes in over seven different scents, including Blue Dusk, Crushed Cinnamon, Vanilla Macaroon, Green Lotus, and Sweet Rhubarb. The Fireplace Collection has a finish that looks and feels like genuine wood bark, and has a cozy campfire scent. The Trilogy Collection features three different, but compatible, scents in one jar. These include Apple Festival, Exotic Spices, Island Sunrise, Clothesline Fresh, Fruit Temptation, and Warm Woods. One of my favorite scents is Pumpkin Pie, which fools everyone into thinking I’ve been baking for hours! I also love the deliciously scented Vanilla Macaroon.
Safety and environmental responsibility are important factors when purchasing scented candles, and WoodWick Candles meet these standards. Woodwicks contain an organic, lead-free wooden wick, and are comprised of a high quality, environmentally friendly soy-wax blend. Unlike many fabric-wicked candles, the WoodWick Candle produces virtually no smoke while burning, and the crackling sound is cozy and relaxing. With all of these unique features, WoodWick Candles truly are a simple, affordable, and fun pleasure.
