Understanding the paper core wicks:
Paper core wicks are unique from many of the other wicks because they tend to burn incredibly hot flames. These wicks cause a lot of wax to melt quickly, making it ideal for larger candles.
Though these aren’t as common as the other wicks, they are still easy to find at many craft stores. If you are looking for a large flame or a burst of scent from your candle, you should use the paper core wicks. Of course, there are many other wicks you can use for your candles, but it would be impossible to go over all of them. However, these are some of the most common, and with these alone you’ll never be without a wick for your candles!
