These are classy and gorgeous jars. I've never had any errors in my orders and they give a new candle line that perfect stand out look

Another order

I ordered these jars again and still no problems!

The only thing I do have an issue with is,

Blind Ambition

Theses containers feel amazing they are great for just getting started in the candle making world


I love these !!
Though the other reviews are correct. Shipping box does say, they are 15oz.
They do work for 8oz of melted wax tho!!

I will be ordering these again!


The lid I received is not metal or atleast doesn't look it or feel like it. It feels & looks very cheap. I don't like it. It has poor suction. Hence I dont trust this to be a good lid. Regret getting this.


What size wick woul I need for these

CandleScience Reply

Hi! The wick you'll want to use will depend on the type of wax you'll be using with these jars. You can consult our Wick Guide for some different options or feel free to reach out to support@candlescience.com for further troubleshooting, we'd be happy to help!

I actually love these jars but am not giving five stars because of the company. Really great products but as a small time start up person I am going broke on shipping rates. I’ve never seen a company charge this much! Almost the entire order price again for shipping then they split orders and double shipping from two wharehouses. Candlescience, please do something about this. No one else charges these rates


I was hesitant to buy a case of these jars with the dome lids because of the shipping cost. I was wrong, the jars are beautiful (perfect for gifts).
When 1 lid arrived broken, and I called customer support Kevin couldn't have been nicer. He requested a photo which I was happy to provide;
and I had the replacements before I even got the photo to him! I checked Amazon prime since I get free shipping, but they charge more for the jars and lids so it ends up costing the same. Great customer service that illustrates a desire for repeat business is so rare today. Candle Science you have my business and I will tell others.

I love these jars... but it does take more wax to fill these. I was confused because the decription states 8oz, but it takes more wax. The bix stated 15 0z. I finally got the right amount of wax to use to fill 2 jars at a time. These are my jars for my candles!!
** the description on the box the jars ars came in was incorrect.

Beautiful, but box says 15oz.

I was a little confused when I went to fill this jar and it took so much wax compared to my other '8oz' jars. When I looked on the box it states these are 15 oz jars. Even with filling below the line it seems to be much more wax than any 8oz I've poured. But...they are gorgeous!

Very Happy Customer!!!!

I had a vision of what I wanted my jars to look like and this was it! Very clean & professional look very very pleased!!!!!


Does these jars have a frost look


I was kind of nervous upon arrival because I didn't know what to expect. But OMG I am beyond thrilled and happy with the size of this jar! The mouth of this jar is wide enough my hand can fit inside and I can even out two wicks comfortably. I am so happy with the Bronze flat lids that Is recommended. This jar paired with that lid will be my signature look going forward!!!

Excellent Jars

We use these 8 .oz Apothecary jars with 3 ECO 10 wicks with 100% satisfied customers. The only problem is we should have ordered more. We love getting the bulk rate. We can't find better pricing on these jars anywhere. very solid/very reliable jars. Thank you, great product. Laurenshillsoycandles.com

Update on Testing

I am testing wicks on the 8 oz apothecary jar and want to report on my first results. I double wicked with ECO 8, and they are burning well. After the first burn of about three hours the wax was oddly cratered, but after successive burns the wax was somewhat cracked, but not cratered. I am next going to test with a double wicked ECO 6 and a single ECO 12. This comes from suggestions on another candle site.

Great Scent

I am testing wicks in the 8 oz apothecary jar. For two jars I used 17.8 oz GB 444 soy wax, heated to 185, added 1 chip ivory, removed from heat and added 1.78 oz cinnamon chai as the fragrance and stirred gently for 2 minutes, poured at 100 degrees. So far so good, the tops are as smooth as glass and the cold throw is great. Will be back in a few weeks with information about the hot throw. If anyone has any information about wicking these jars I would be forever grateful.

Great jars

I bought these as a cheaper alternative to ones I've been buying. Although they are way thinner and I feel like they're really fragile (my personal opinion) they look great and with the flat top just what I'm looking for. As said in previous review, there are a few dirty ones but nothing that can't be fixed.

about the tumbler boxes

I would like to know is this 8oz jar can fit on the tumbler boxes, that you have for sale here.. thanks

Great for testing

I love the larger size of these jars, which makes these ideal for testing the burn characteristics of candles I'll make with the larger sizes. Until I get the right combination of wicks size and dye/fragrance amounts, these jars help to reduce development costs.
