Candle tins are a great alternative, or complement, to traditional glass candle containers. Our gold 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 2 oz, 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 fragrance loads.

More Competitive Pricing

I give these 4-1/2 stars. The pricing could/should be more competitive. CS should offer these in a set of 24 (because they ship really light) for at least $24.95-$26.95. Twelve pcs. for almost $20 bucks is simply NOT competitive pricing. The quality is good. I buy from another vendor with white & black tins with even better quality same design, and the pricing is much better. However, they offer bronze instead of gold [for a 3rd color], and their quality is EXCELLENT! Thanks for the attempt, CS.

5 out of 5 Stars.

Beautiful tins, the color is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you Candle Science for having such wonderful products and customer service.

colors don't match

The color of the lid is not the same shade as the tin. I bought 2 12 packs and they are both that way.

Hi there, thanks so much for your review! The tins themselves have a satin finish whereas their lids have a gloss finish so you'll notice a small amount of difference between the two. As a helpful reference, we have a note about this in the product description on the product page. A member of our Support team has reached out to you via email to assist further!
