Don't forget to
trim your wick!
Our #1 candle tip is this: TRIM YOUR WICK
After each burn, once the wax has cooled, it's important to remove the black crumbling ash before relighting. You can use a wick trimmer, a scissors, or even just pinch off as much as you can with your fingers. Removing the excess ash makes relighting easier, keeps the flame at a safe height, and prevents smoking of the jar. The wax also burns more efficiently so your candle will last longer too! Now that's advice we can all get behind!
Want a fancy wick trimmer like the one in the photo? We've got you covered here.

What's in a name?
'Sota Cracklers! It's a terrible, terrible pun... so of course we went with it! Actually the name of our made-in-Minnesota candles is partly derived from the crackling wooden wicks we use! We're also BIG fans of Minnesota & proud to call the state our home! That's why our scents are named after places & things that are uniquely Minnesotan, like our piney Northwoods scent, or our cheeky Mosquito Bite scent made with citronella & mint.
We value quality, craftsmanship, & beautiful design. We strive to bring you a bit of nature with our crackling wood wicks, set into naturally smoke-less soy wax candles, which fit brilliantly into any modern or traditional home decor. Our wood wicks are responsibly sourced from US forests & our wax is also made from American grown soy beans. All our candles are carefully poured by hand, in small batches, in our St. Paul home studio for your enjoyment.
