The Art of Candle Making: How We Craft Our Soy Wood Wick Candles

At Mountainside Woodwick Candles, we believe that candle making is not just a process - it's an art. Our passion for creating the perfect ambient glow and soothing crackle in every candle has led us to a meticulous methodology in crafting our signature soy wood wick candles. Here's a peek behind the curtain at our crafting process, where tradition meets innovation to light up your world.

The Selection of Soy Wax

Our journey begins with selecting the finest natural soy wax, a renewable resource known for its clean burn and minimal environmental impact. Not only is soy wax biodegradable, but it also offers a longer burn time, ensuring that each of our candles grace your space with its presence longer than traditional paraffin candles.

The Essence of Scent

The heart of a candle lies in its fragrance. We pride ourselves on our selection of US-based fragrance suppliers to develop unique, memorable scents while providing a toxin-free burn for our customers. Whether it's the fresh aroma of mountain pine or the comforting scent of vanilla and lavender, our fragrances are crafted with the highest quality essential oils and phthalate-free fragrance oils, aiming to transport you to your favorite memories and places.

The Craft of the Wood Wick

What sets our candles apart is the distinctive crackle of our wood wicks, made from American cherry wood. Our wicks are carefully sourced and tested for the perfect burn. The wood wick not only brings a unique auditory experience but also enhances the fragrance throw by creating a larger melt pool than traditional cotton wicks. They also slow down the burning process, making your candle last longer.

The Pouring Process

Precision is key in the candle pouring process. Each candle is hand-poured in small batches to ensure consistency and quality. We meticulously blend the fragrance oils with the melted soy wax at just the right temperature before carefully pouring into our signature amber glass jars. This attentive process guarantees that each candle is a masterpiece of fragrance and light.

The Finishing Touches

After the candles are poured, they are left to cool and then undergo a rigorous quality check. We ensure the wood wick is perfectly centered, and the surface is smooth, creating a visually stunning candle as pleasing to the eye as it is to the other senses. Each candle is then cleaned, labeled, and packaged with care, ready to bring warmth and beauty into your home.

At Mountainside Woodwick Candles, we craft our soy wax candles with love, care, and a deep respect for nature. Each step of our process, from the sustainably sourced materials to the hand-poured wax, is a testament to our dedication to quality and sustainability. We invite you to light one of our candles, hear the gentle crackle of the wood wick, and feel the warmth of our passion for candle making flowing into your space.
