Protective Varnish Coat

All our candle tins have a varnish coating on the inside of the tin to help protect the metal from discoloring. Fragrance components such as cinnamon oil and vanillin can still cause the colors of the tins to shift over time, particularly at higher fragrances loads.

Candle tins are a great alternative (or complement) to traditional glass candle containers. Ours have a really nice finish and include snug fitting lids.

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!

-Wick Tab Outline makes wicking a breeze.

Labeling Area:
Top - 2-1/8"
Bottom - 1-1/4" (between feet)
Side - 1" x 8-1/8"
The 4 oz size is popular on its own or as a smaller size in a line that includes an 8 oz tin.

How much will it hold?
Wax Weight (to Fill Line) - 2.7 oz.
Volume (to Overflow) - 4.7 oz.

Made in the USA

Please consider . . .

Love your products - there is actually very little I have ever been disappointed with, when it comes to Candle Science.
These tins are actually the best quality, for the best price, that I have found. We have purchased via Alibaba, DHGate, various stateside retail places, as well as wholesale. While I can find them a tad cheaper, the quality is simply not there.
Please consider carrying the black tin, as well. Our customers have been requesting them lately and I would love to offer that option to them!

Betsy's Soy Candles

I'm so happy and finally realize one of my longest dreams ! To make my own Soy Candle and at the same time make my profit.
I used 4 oz and 8 oz with Soy 464 wick it is perfect for both of them ! My customers always make complements about it ! Thank You !

First time burn

I am new to making candles and just purchased the 4 oz tins. I did the burn test with ECO 10,12,14. I burned for 4 hours the wicks wasn’t any different. Day 2 burned for 4 hours in separate rooms wick 10 and 12 gave off more throw in gave off more hot throw in a smaller room. Can barley smell the wick for 14. I did this burn after 24 hours. I heat wax to 180, put dye in, add scent at 140 -/+5, and poured at 10 degrees from when I add the scent. I stirred scent for 2 minutes. Smooth tops. I’ve also noticed that if there is a lot of movement around the candles where they are curing cause rough tops. I used 10% of scent and loved this

Perfect tins!

I love this size tin! My friends and family say it's their favorite size.


My 120 jars came in clean and none were dented. Very happy.

Lids were dented :(

I recently ordered 120pc of these 4oz tins for a wedding. I've gone through half and have already come
across 12 lids that are badly dented and useless to me. Hope I have better luck with the other 110 lids b/c if I'm unable to use these lids I'm wasting my money buying them. The lids came in large bags all thrown in together, not good packaging on the lids. Pretty disappointed.

Use these with the recommended wick and it burns great in GB 464. A nice product to offer when a customer just wants to "try" it at home and see if they want to go for the bigger candle.

Wick Size Used

I forgot to mention that I used the ECO 2 6" Pretabbed Wick. This size worked perfectly for this tin. The wax melted evenly and to the side of the tin. See my review for the ECO 2 6" wick and the Ecosoya CB-135 soy wax.

Good Quality - Great Size for Gifts

I am using these tins to make natural candles for bath and body gift sets. They are a good quality and the lid fits nicely.

Great candle container

I use these all the time - they are great for giving as gifts. They also travel well. I hope you don"t stop making these. I also use the 8oz tins.

Wick Question

Any recommendation for wick size for the 4oz tin? Thanks!

120pc Case - Could Be Better

I love these tins, I've been using them for a while now. I had a large order recently and purchased the 120 piece set instead of the normal 12 piece. As much as I love these, I was very frustrated with how these were packaged. There was some sort of dust or small paper type substance in each of the tins, requiring me to clean out each and every one. The lids came packaged separately in a bag, which I appreciated over them being assembled, but each lid had what looked like little strings or shavings on them, likely from the lids rubbing on each other. The extra savings per tin is nice, but having to clean each tin and each lid is time I would of rather not wasted.

Perfect size

These 4 oz candle tins are perfect for any gift or boutique set up sales! I'm excited to make more.

I love em!

They're a GREAT size! I have a whole line of candle tins on my website using these 4 oz tins!
