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.

This jars definitely bigger than 8 oz. I am currently in the testing phase to see how it will burn. I am using the CD 12"6 wicks, and the 464 soy wax. I am looking to get a 8%-10% HT. I am just doing this as a hobby, but it seems like I am spending a lot of money on wicks.

Great for GB 464 Soy Wax

These jars are great because they are neutral and can be customized to whatever look you are going for and work great for any season of the year. Very versatile. I pair it with the bronze lid and a glossy white label and it looks very sleek. After testing with 464 wax, I found that the double wicking with CD 8 was my best bet at 8% FO. Could get away with CD12 with higher FO but it will create a deeper melt pool than needed.

Surprise its more

Not sure as to why CS is saying these are 8oz... but I clearly got more into it without it over flowing and I am very excited about it!

Hi There! Thank you for taking the time to review the 8 oz Apothecary Jars. To help out with any confusion in regards to how much a container will hold, we will always list the wax weight of the containers we carry on the product page for each container, as well as the measurement in fluid ounces. We provide this information because containers will almost always hold less wax than they will water, and we know how vital the wax weight measurement is for our customers.

For a majority of the containers we carry, the name we list on our website is not the name that was determined by the manufacturer. Generally, their names are based on the volume by fluid ounce, which is also the name that would appear on the packaging from the manufacturer. I hope this information is helpful, but you if have further questions or concerns please email us at [email protected].

I love the look of these jars with the bronze lids. It is exactly the look I want. The lid fits nice and snug but not too tight. I have just ONE desire for these jars- Please when shipping, use some type of bubble wrap or peanuts. When they arrived, I heard the post man set the box down and I thought- omg I hope my vessels didn't break. To my relief they did not, phew! When I opened the box I was surprised to see them in a sectioned off box with the dividers between them, placed inside a bigger box with peanuts. I was so grateful that none were broken (and I know that specific incident, the post man had a part to play), but I would feel much better about ordering these if they are packaged a little more carefully. I love you Candle Science!

LOVE them, wick recommendation on point!

I was nervous about being able to wick these but I started with the recommendation of two eco 2's for 6006 and they were perfect with all of the fragrances in my line. I followed Candle Science's recommendations and made the perfect candles! I definitely recommend.

I love them but the wick recommendation not so much

I had tried the 16 oz on my last order and all worked well with the wick guide 2x eco 10 for wax 464 with 9% FO . For my latest order , I took the 8oz instead and the wick guide was recommending cd 26. It is absolutely NOT great at all. Not only I couldn't get a nice even burn but the flame is very intense.

I will test a double wick tonight and see . Hopefully I won't waste too much time and money testing. Besides that, I absolutely love the look !

Wick Problem

These Jars Are Amazing. Really Cute. However, I Did My Batch And As I Burned The Candle. I’ve Noticed That The Wick Was Only Melting In The Center. Leaving The Walls With Wax. So I’m Trying Two Wicks This Time Around. Hopefully That Solves My Problem (Fingers Crossed)

Wick size debate

I use one CD 26 6” in these “8oz” jars and the melt is perfect. No black soot, clean burn all the way til the end.
I have tried wood wicks in these as well. The burn is very inconsistent and weak with a single wood wick but doubling the wood wick burns way too hot. I ended up splitting the wick in half the long way and doing 1 1/2 wood wick and got a perfect burn. I find that the HT with a wood wick is not as strong as with a cotton wick.

Love love love!

I absolutely love these jars. They are perfect for 10 oz candles. I tried single and double wicking (wooden wicks) and they both burned really well!
