Instructions

Note that the below wick instructions are based on our in-house testing, and you should also conduct your own testing with fragrance loads and colouring. (Download the complimentary testing sheet)

Step 1 – Measuring the Diameter of the Jar

Ensure that you work on a safe surface. It is advised to pack out and re-measure the inside diameter of the jars, write down the diameter as not to choose the incorrect wick.

Step 2 – Select the Wick

Choose the wick based on the diameter provided in the wick table.

Step 3 – Decide to use 1 or 2 Wicks

If your jar has a wider diameter, and you need to use 2 wicks, simply divide the diameter of the jar by the number of wicks you will be using, also refer to the wick table below.

Step 4 – Applying the wick to the Jar

Use a good quality glue gun, place a tiny drop of warm glue onto the metal sustainer.  Simply adhere the wick as central in the jar as possible, you can also mark the middle with a non-permanent marker. For double wicks, mentally divide out the jar, mark out the two half sections and place wicks equal distance from the sides and middle.
