Candle tins are a great alternative (or complement) to traditional glass candle containers. Ours have a really nice finish and include snug fitting lids. These are great for gift sets, themed sets, giveaways, and more. Also available in 2 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!
  • 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.

Sleek design, works great

I use the 4 oz. size tin with coconut wax and a little beeswax mixed in for hardness, Hearts & Crafts cotton wicks (they don't give a size, but they work perfectly), and a pine scent that is extremely popular. I have had no problems with discoloration of the inside of the tin. For labeling, I use a round, clear/transparent 1.25" round label (with black lettering) on the lid. It looks really good, I think! These are the best designed candle tins I've seen. My only complaints would be that they dent a bit easily and - when I add the shipping to the product price - they are more expensive per vessel than my 8 oz. canning jars with black lids, which is what I mainly use. I will order a ton of these for the holidays.

So far, I love the look and size. However, I was wondering if they get hot being so small?

I love these. I sell these in packs of 3. I use the cd 8 or cd6 or eco 4 depending on the fragrance. I did have a heavy vanilla load at 10% in 464 and the bottom did rust or turn brown. As long as I stay under 8% with vanilla its ok. I've never gotten a complaint.

I love these candle tins. However, some of mine arrived with dents and/or scratches on them.

Hi! A member of our team will be reaching out shortly!

To all the friends I've seen asking about label sizing - I use a 2.5inch round label for all my tins. This size goes all the way to the edge of the 4oz tins and goes to the edge of the raised portion on 6oz tins. If you want a label that fits to the edge of the raised portion of the 4oz tin, I'd recommend a 2inch round label 😁 if you are making labels for the sides, check out the dimensions listed and that should tell you the height so you can plan accordingly. Happy chandeling!

Side note: I use only CS tins even though they are more expensive just for the raised feet feature! My customers appreciate it. I've had requests for 16oz candles, but I can't find any with the raised feet. Please consider adding 16oz tins to the collection 😁
