How Do Candles Work?

When candles are lit, a wooden wick ignites and starts the combustion reaction. The heat from the flame melts the wax at the top of the candle and releases it as vapor into the air. The vapor reacts chemically with oxygen in the air to produce water and carbon dioxide gas alongside other fragrant molecules. This is why candles have a signature scent when they’re burning. Our wooden wicks help eliminate the over production of carbon dioxide when burning. 

By understanding the combustion reactions that occur when candles are lit, we can better appreciate how candles work and enjoy their pleasant fragrances more safely. Even if you’re not a science enthusiast, it’s hard to deny that candles and their associated chemical processes are cool!
