Lighting Up Your Life: Exploring Candle Wicks and Why They Make Me Love Candles Even More

When it comes to candles, most people focus on the scent and aesthetics of the candle rather than the wick. However, the type of wick used in a candle can have an impact on your health and the environment. Conventional store-bought big brand candles typically use bleached cotton wicks that may contain a core made from various materials, including lead. As the candle burns, it can release chemicals from the wick and the wax into the air.

At Fontana, the focus is on creating a clean and nontoxic product. That's why all of their wicks are made of untreated Cherry wood. This ensures that no additional chemicals are released when the candle burns. They also take sustainability seriously, and all of our wood is sourced from Forest Stewardship Council Certified mills. This certification ensures that the wood used for our wicks is harvested responsibly and sustainably.

By choosing candles with untreated Cherry wood wicks, you can enjoy your favorite scents without worrying about the potential health risks associated with traditional cotton wicks. Plus, you can feel good knowing that you're supporting sustainable practices. So next time you light a candle, consider the type of wick it has and choose a clean and eco-friendly option like Fontana.
