How is Hemp Wick Made?

Hemp wick is nothing more than hemp twine soaked in beeswax, making it the most simple and clean-burning lighter available.

We always hand-make our hemp wick in small batches and quality-test it ourselves! We hand coat every inch of hemp twine in 100% beeswax from our local apiaries and package all of our products ourselves with recycled packing paper and compostable containers.

We DO NOT use any of the following: GMOs, starches, lead, filler wax, paraffin wax, blended fibers, acid salts, bleaching agents, or petroleum products. We also do not use machines or outsource to create our products. You can learn more about our ingredients here!

We start with quality hemp twine from California and pure beeswax from a very local source. The beeswax is put into a clean slow-cooker device and melted at a very low temperature. Once the beeswax is fully liquid, we submerge our hemp twine until the air has bubbled out. The hemp wick is pulled out and drained of excess beeswax until it hardens. Once the hemp wick has cooled off, it is measured into lengths, cut, and packaged.
