Love these jars but
Nav@Sagensabr 2024-06-26

I am struggling to find a good wick for these jars. I have tried with series CD 6,14,26 and ECO 2,6,16 both single and double wick and none of them seem to work properly. The melt pool is either too deep and jar gets too hot or there is tunneling and the wax doesn’t come off the inside walls. Please help🙏🏽

Pretty for a large jar candle

I'd submit a photo if I could but I use these with the gold lids and think they are so chic and beautiful. I will say the glass was thinner then expected the first time I picked them up but I have not broken one yet.

I double wick these. I wish candle science would sell nice looking glass containers that held 12 ounces of wax. I'd buy those too.

Super excited to use these but wicking is stressing me out.

Excited about added this jar size/style to my product line but wicking is very discouraging. The jar is gorgeous and light weight. This will make a beautiful addition to my collection. I use Coconut Apricot wax and really want to double wick. I've tried double cd5, cd8, I have Zinc and premier wicks on hand. I feel like I am starting from scratch pending lost on wicks just for this single jar. I bought 3 cases so I can't turn back.

Hi there Kimberly, thanks so much for your review! We're super bummed to hear that you're having some trouble wicking the Coconut Apricot wax. Wicking is most often the most frustrating part of candle making, and we'd be happy to help. A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email to assist.
