6 oz Candle Tin
Choose a Variant

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, 4 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.

Love these

They work so well for sample fragrances. At craft shows I price them lower than my larger jars and people buy several of different fragrances for gifts or for themselves.

Almost all of my tin can lids have dents on the top from the pressure of the tins cans sitting on top. I assume either the delivery was a bit rough or the it came with the dents from factory/warehouse.

I love these they are perfect and the only tins I have been able to find with little feet. The only downside is how long they have been out of stock. I fear I will only have 1 scent in 6 oz and 0 8oz by the time of my craft fair. I would go with another brand but these are the best plus the ability to pick up your order is why I love this company.

Absolutely love these little tins! They are easier to work with, in my opinion, than glass for a beginner like me. I hope they come in other colors like black, gold, rose gold, copper, etc. one day which would allow for more creativity and use in more luxury lines!

Perfect tins for a baby shower

I was worried after reading the reviews of dents/scratches but all 60 of mine were in perfect condition and they are so cute! Perfect for little gifts for baby shower and wedding guests. I highly recommend and will purchase more in the future!

Just can't label

Perfect for making candles, but I just can't figure out how to label them and make them look nice.

Discoloration of 6 oz.

Purchased a few of the 6oz. tins, soy wax user, really adored the smaller size. Unfortunately unable to continue using due to discoloration with wax a waste of soy wax and F.O. waste of money all around stuck with 4 boxes and several used unsold products.

10% Always Dented and Unusable

I love the size and style of these tins, however I keep having a reoccurring issue of lids being dented, scratched and unusable. I currently have almost 2 dozen tins that cannot be used because there are not enough undamaged lids. This is from ordering two 120 pc cases. I have even tried labeling over the lid, but the dents can be seen under the lid and through the label. The total usable product is usually only 105-110 tins per 120 piece box, so make sure to factor that into your cost. If the lids were packaged on the tins (like the 12 pc case) then there would be cardboard surrounding and protecting them. However, they are all together in one big plastic bag without any protection.

Tin discoloring

Very upset. Made candles for my business, 4 boxes worth, and half of them are discolored looking orangish. So what exactly am I suppose to do. Very very upset.
