Hi you sent me 15oz Libby jars 995 and 22oz Libby 996 and Im not sure what wicks to use for them also if I use single or double? Also what are the properties and diameter for both. I appreciate info for both.



I absolutely love the width and depth of this jar. It is a consumer favorite, and really is great for every setting. For decorative purposes, this jar gives me the width I need to add silicone molds on top.

So I found out along time ago that the recommended wick size is most likely inaccurate. So it’s always best to test..
I started off with 8oz jelly jars with getting a couple sells here and there NOW with these they are flying off the shelf. Not sure if it’s because of the elegance look with the bronze top but my customers love them. So unfortunate that they are out of stock.

Wax I use: 464 Soy Wax (no added additives)
Wick I use: Eco 10 (3- wicks are inserted in the jars)

I melt 16oz (1lbs) of wax per jar so I think that’s a bit over the fill line

Shipping is very high though but I calculate the shipping into my product cost.

Nice jars

So far, I've only ordered one case. I've used two jars out of them and they look really nice! All but one of the glass jars has a malformation on the bottom, so I'm just keeping it as my candle testing jar for myself. I've had compliments on them and have an order of two more sets on their way.


Beautiful Jars - oz Is Inaccurate

These are beautiful jars and I will continue to order them. The only issue I had is similar to the 8 oz apothecary jar, the oz advertised is inaccurate. When I fill to the 16 oz it doesn’t look completely full. I don’t feel comfortable selling candles that don’t look full. I can fit 19/20oz comfortably in these jars. I wish I would have waited to order my labels because I went based off the 16 oz was advertised here. Fingers crossed that my label guy didn’t start printing yet.

Love these jars! Very fun and whimsical. Which wicks would you recommend if I'm double-wicking and using a coconut/vegetable wax blend?


In love

I’ve been using CandleScience for quite some time now. Huge thanks for staying current with the scents and added new scents. However these jars are great. Ever since I made the change from the 26oz to the 16oz (keeping my prices the same), I thought I would hear complains from my customers since I downsized on the jar. To my surprise they love it and actually been getting more sales with the new look (I use the black flat lid).



Very satisfied and impressed with the customer service. One jar in my case was broken and CandleScience sent an entire new case which was well above and beyond in regards to service. After seeing how CandleScience values their customers we have made them our sole supplier for all the materials that we need and they supply. Thank you!

I just started my own candle company. These jars arrived in perfect condition. They are very attractive with the flat silver lids. My customers are going crazy over these! Thank-you for the extra care you take in packing them. And WOW that was a speedy delivery. I had a very large order and couldn't believe how fast everything arrived. I am extremely satisfied with your services. ~Melissa 🌹

Love These

These jars are all I use. I have used all sizes. I currently only see the 16 oz jars but I love the look at I love the thickness. I’ve dropped many candles filled with wax and none of them have ever broken. Once, I had some shipped and one of them were broken. Instead of them sending me just one, they sent me a whole box of 12. Everything is just amazing with this company!

I have been making candles for a few months. This jar is my biggest seller. I buy only from candle science for my supplies. Shipping is fast and the quality of everything I receive is perfect.


Jars are dirty

Our last 2 shipments of 16 & 26 oz apothecary jars have came in dirty, with a film on the jars. We are having to wash/dry each jar. Something has changed, they didnt used to be like this. Not thrilled about the added labor it takes to use these.

sturdy and classy

These jars are great now that I found a wick to go with them. I used gb 464 soy wax and double wicked with eco 8. Even burn, glass is not too hot and amazing scent throw. I may try a double wicked eco 6 for a slower burn. Perfect though

I Love These Jars

I have switched from another company to purchased my jars here and I am so happy that I did. These jars are seamless and that makes them so beautiful and they are very light in weight. I will always buy these jars as long as they carry them.
