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 that makes wicking a breeze.

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.

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

My second time pouring candles. These containers are fantastic! I did achieve the stated wax weight of 2.7oz using 464 wax. I checked the volume to be also over 4oz to the brim.

Not 4 ounce

I expected to fill this container with 4 ounces of candle wax. The most wax that this container held was 3.65 ounces, to the brim. I filled 7 tins to capacity. I turned the wick sideways to put the lid on, which was suitable. But the issue is the volume. The jar doesn't hold 4 ounces. So I can't use them as planned. I'll have to look elsewhere for what I want.

Odd discoloration on candle

I am resending this review...my prior had some letters that did not type.
I made 132 candles for wedding favors. When my husband and I went to put labels on, he happened to open and smell candle and asked how come there was some brownish color that appeared to seep from outer edge of candle where it touches tin?? I first thought rust and thought “oh no!”... they were very time-consuming gift I am doing for our son and soon-to-be daughter-in-law. I haven’t gone through them all yet! They turned out absolutely adorable and I was so pleased, until I see this. I saw someone post about a chemical reaction with some scents?? I used Very Vanilla??? Please help so I know for future reference. And I am assuming they will not hamper my candle burn or scent in any way? Just disappointed after all the time and work that went Into them.

Love these tins! These are perfect.

Great tins

Not sure why the buyer below said beware but these tins work great. I tried looking for the cheaper tins referenced but the closest I saw online was 88 cents per tin and these are priced at 73 cents.

Anyway great tin for a great price, I really love CandleScience.


They do change color with certain scents over time and it will look like rust. Hard to make all customers aware it is not rust. Also just found that this is actually one of the most expensive sites to purchase these tins at. Last time I'll be ordering these tins here. They cost me the exact same at my 8oz amber glass jars (lids included). Bummer because I like candlescience.

Love love love these tins! Perfect size for gifts, custom favors and travel candles. Would absolutely love to see them in gold as well!!

4oz containers

These are excellent and my first batch of candles turned out well. Will you be selling these tins in gold or other metallic colors at all, or just the regular silver?

Was pleasantly surprised

Never used tins before. Bought a 12 count of these 4 oz tins and used NatureWax C-3 (not sold here but very similar in properties to the 464 was that is), and used the ECO-8 wicks (which were bought here).

Heated wax to 160-170, put color and scent in almost right away (per manufacturer spec). After a few days I noticed smooth top and wonderful cold throw.

Burn after 3.5 hours reached the edge very well. Successful burns after the first burn too. Noticed that the ECO-8 seems to be a perfect fit for these but that obviously depends on your wax usage too.

I will likely order a 120 count set to incorporate these into our inventory. Really love the little tin feet on the bottom!

This is an awesome product.

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!
