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 peels

This is so disappointing, I wanted to love these, but they peel so bad. It seems good at first, but it peels. I have some I can't sell. I just decided to light them and waste my money. Candle science you have to listen to us and change where you get these from. I've been with you guys 5 years.

8oz Peels, do not purchase!

I started with the 4oz and 6oz black tins for sample sizes to test all my products. There was no issue with pain peeling as others described.

I purchased the 8oz black tins, believing that there would not be in an issue. I have poured over 72 candles in these tins for resale, and all 3 of my tests candles in the 8oz peeled.

I will be asking for a refund, since I cannot sell these.

Very Frustrating - especially if CandleScience knows these are having issues.

Paint Peeling

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