Choose a Variant

Candle tins are a great alternative, or complement, to traditional glass candle containers. Our black candle tins have a beautiful, satin finish, a silver interior, and include snug fitting gloss lids. The 8 oz size is our bestselling tin and is more popular than many styles of candle glass. Also available in 4 oz and 6 oz tins. Or, explore our full lineup of candle 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 feature 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.

Disappointed… but not at the package on arrival

Package arrived without any issues and the look and feel of these black tins were great.

However, once candles were made, after a while when you open the lid you can see where the black paint is lifting from the inner rim of the tins over time. Paint is not staying and when candle lids comes off it does not look good.

All arrived with small dents on the bottom. Some scratched. Was very disappointed. Will just use these for testing as I cannot sell a product that looks like this.

10 out of 12 damaged

I love these tins and have used them from other companies and they arrived well-packed and in great shape. Until recently these were not offered in any color except for silver so I ordered some and 10 out of the 12 were damaged. Some of them are gravely damaged. Lids and containers. Very disappointed.
