I love the jars.. they’re light and clear. However I’m figuring out what is the best type and size of wick to use for an optimum burn. I use coconut soy wax because of the color. Can you suggest which type of wick to use and size? Should I be using 1 wick or 2 to achieve the optimum burn / wax pool? Thanks.

cute jar!

I haven't tried this jar yet, but it's really cute! I'm just starting to experiment with candle making and after the first couple of orders, I'm a very happy new customer!

Label help

Good morning I really do love the jars they have done wonders for my business, but I am struggling with the labeling for the jars. Is there any label that fits the jar perfectly?

We love these jars!

We use these for our business and love the wide 4” diameter opening! We have ordered several dozen of these jars and the matching gold lids and will continue to order both over and over. If they were about an inch or two shorter but still had the 4” diameter they would be dream vessels, but we appreciate them as is. When we launch this jar will be in the limelight! I just hope CS will carry them in perpetuity, or offer the new mini ceramic jar with a 4” diameter! Thank you CS for stocking these chic, sleek candle jars!

Hola. Compre el frasco de boticario de 8oz. Lamentablemente no he podido usarlo. Con ninguna cera de las que he usado a funcionado. Esas ceras son la IGI 6006 , soja 464 y 4630. Si uso las que ustedes sugieren, no funcionan, si pongo dos mechas de vamos a asuponer eco2, el frasco se calienta demasiado. He gastado dinero y tiempo. Ya no se que más hacer con esto. Les agradecería su opinión.
