Candle tins are a great alternative (or complement) to traditional glass candle containers. Ours have a really nice finish and include snug fitting lids. The 2 oz size is great for free samples or as an inexpensive starter candle to get people hooked on your fragrances! Also available in 4 oz, 6 oz, and 8 oz tins.

CandleScience tins are made from steel and are safe and easy to use, thanks to:

  • Raised Safety Feet that keep surfaces cool, and candle burners happy!
Protective Varnish Coating

Our candle tins have a varnish coating on the inside of the tin to help protect the metal from discoloring. Keep in mind that aroma components like citrus oils, cinnamon oil, and vanillin in fragrance oils can still cause the color of the tin to shift, particularly at higher fragrances loads.

Great experience

I've been using these tins for my sample boxes for almost a year now. They work wonders. I use 464 wax and CD 4 3" wicks from candlescience.

These tins are super high quality. I have used them for smaller, custom orders where the customer wants silver. I buy from another vendor for my main tins because I use gold - please add a gold option! I would prefer these tins as they are higher quality. 🙏

I like the container. They are cute. I used CD4 as recommended by CS wick guide, it was burning ok, not tunneling, full melting, clean burning, but the flame was very small. Need to try CD6 but of course wicks are all out of stock and hope CS bring back sample pack that they used to carry. I honestly don’t want to buy bulk especially when i need to test new containers and new wick. 12pk is fine but I know CS used to sell variety pack—CD wicks includes all different sizes wick. Hope CS consider to bring this back to makers save money and save the planet. Not sure what I’m gonna do with all wicks and I don’t need.

Do you suggest using their 1.5" round or a 2"? Quick custom order, I don't have time to test. Thank you.

Great tins!

My only complaint is that they can get dings in them easily, but they're perfect for my line of mini candles!
