8 oz Black Candle Tin Lid Off
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.

Paint Peeling

Love the look, But the paint peels after a few weeks. And it looks terrible if you are selling to retailers.

Great size, terrible quality. The paint is peeling off of the rim after 3 months

I love the size and the look. None arrived significantly dented, but I have to discount 11/12 of my candles because the rim's black paint is peeling off. It looks unsightly. I'd recommend not purchasing these. I won't be buying them again.

Paint/Covering Peeled

We love the look of these black tins however the black coating has started to peel away from in inside (top) of the tin. It’s very noticeable on the tins that contained our pumpkin crunch sent. We also have the white tin but haven’t experienced this issue with those as of yet.
