Lead In The Wicks

We are frequently asked by candle consumers if our candle wicks contain lead cores. The short answer to that question is… NO. According to the National Candle Association lead wicks have been banned in the United States since 2003. Even before that lead wicks were primarily found in inexpensive imported candles. We use 3 types of wicks in our candles; paper core, zinc core, and cotton. All three of these wick types have been pronounced safe for use in candles.
