These stunning crackling wicks are quite the treat if you follow these steps. Treat your wood wick as a small campfire. It may need a little extra work to keep going. I recommend using a BBQ lighter for these and keeping the flame on the wick for 15-30 seconds until the entire wick has a steady, strong flame.
An extinguished flame may mean the wick wasn't trimmed enough. Break the charred tip with your fingers or use fingernail clippers if you don't have wick trimmers on hand. Keep your wood wick about 1/4 inch above the wax for best results.
