8 oz Candle Tin
Choose a Variant

Candle tins are a great alternative (or complement) to traditional glass candle containers. Ours have a really nice finish and include snug fitting lids. The 8 oz size is our bestselling tin and is even more popular than a lot of styles of candle glass.

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 have 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.

recent quality is not-so-good

I have enjoyed using tins as a way to get into candle making, purely as a hobby and not as a business, so the tins have been an inexpensive way to 'dabble'. That being said, my recent order or past two orders of tins has not been so great. As soon as I opened the box I could tell the packing paper was of a lesser quality and found that the lids were often dented. For my hobby, not such a big deal, definitely not a big enough deal to return them. But I do notice a difference between the new tins and tins from previous orders, mostly in the lids as they are frequently dented and don't fit as well as the 'old' ones do. Here's hoping this was a one-off, funky batch and the better quality tins will return soon.

These tins were sent with my starter kit and I have been using them with the suggested wick size for the past six months with no problem, except for a few with wicks that did not center properly. Overall they are good for my purpose.

Love these Tins!

These tins do not get too hot when burning, allows for an even melt-pool, and is an overall classic. Just wish they could keep them in stock!

Cute and perfect for gifts

I am a hobbyist candlemaker and made candles for friends/family for Christmas using these tins. They are so cute!
Perfect size for what I wanted to do and great option for a beginner. I would purchase again.

I really love these tins and they are a great seller. I wonder if you will offer them in black and/or copper?
