11 Best Double Wick Soy Candles (Summer Scents!)

11 Best Double Wick Soy Candles (Summer Scents!)

You can’t stop staring at the candle on your best friend’s island. Can a candle that size even burn effectively? You wonder. 

You’ve heard of double-wick candles before but hadn’t bought into the hype. Now you’re beginning to wonder if maybe it is more than a trend.

So what’s the deal with double-wick candles—and are they better than single-wick candles? 

What is a Double Wick Candle?

A double-wick candle is like any other candle except that it contains two wicks toward the center of the wax. Double-wick candles became popular as the size of candles grew. Doubling the wicks in candles has quite a few candle-burning benefits. 

Benefits of a Double Wick Candle

Double-wick candles are about more than just the aesthetic. There are practical reasons why a candle would have a double—or even triple—wick.

Allows larger candles to burn more efficiently.

When a candle is wider than 4 inches, it’s best to use at least two wicks. This helps the candle burn more efficiently because the double heat source ensures that the wax melts evenly. 

Instead of the wax forming a tunnel around a single wick, two wicks provide balanced heat distribution, allowing the entire surface to melt uniformly and have a longer lifespan.

Prevent soot development.

Double-wick candles help minimize the formation of soot. With a single wick, especially in larger candles, the wick might burn unevenly or too intensely. 

This can lead to soot deposits on the candle jar and in the air. Two wicks distribute the heat more evenly, resulting in a cleaner burn.

Prevent wick mushrooming.

Wick mushrooming, where the wick forms a carbon cap, can occur when a wick is too large for the candle. This can cause excessive smoking and an uneven burn. 

Double-wick candles reduce the risk of mushrooming because the heat is more evenly distributed between two smaller wicks. This balanced burning ensures a consistent flame without the buildup of carbon deposits.

Larger scent throw.

One of the standout benefits of double-wick candles is their enhanced scent throw. A larger candle has more scent molecules to disperse, and the dual heat sources help these molecules spread further and faster throughout the room. 

This means your space will be filled with your favorite fragrance more quickly and more thoroughly than with a single-wick candle. 

Even burn for the candle.

Larger candles contain more wax, which requires sufficient heat to melt evenly. Without adequate heat, the candle can develop a "tunneling" effect, where wax remains unburned along the sides. 

A double-wick design helps avoid this by providing enough heat to ensure the entire surface of the candle melts consistently. This results in a smooth, even burn from edge to edge that uses all of the wax and allows you to get the most out of your candle.
