Best jars EVER!

When I started, I just used mason jars from the store. I'm so glad I finally found a more professional jar that looks the exact same! I also love the simple design of it! It really let's my labels shine!

I love these Jar super cute.

Avery Label Size

Great jars. Simple and effective. Has anyone printed an Avery label for this jar and what size(s) would you recommend?

Wick size/blend wax

I just got the 8oz jelly jars (love the size)and also bought the para/soy blend wax (IGI 6006). Am afraid I got the wrong wax and wick size (HTP104). Could that be true? and got all wrong items for that jar?

Wick for C3

I am about to purchase the container, but what wick would you recommend for C3 wax? Would it be the CD 8 as well?


What wick would you recommend when using Naturewax C3 in these jars?


I love these jars but my question is
Which wicks work best for these jars
I'm using 464 soy wax

CandleScience Reply

Hi! We'd recommend testing with either an ECO 8 or a CD 8 wick for these jars and the 464 wax. Depending on your particular recipe, you may find that you'll need to wick up or down after a burn test. We'd be happy to troubleshoot further if you'd like to reach out to us at support@candlescience.com!

Jelly jars

Hi B Rose,

Warm your jars up in the oven or heat gun and lower your pour point to 120 instead. This what I do for mines, but sometimes Soy does that it’s not the jar. Great jar. Good luck

Hello! Maybe someone can help me out with this.. I am having some serious trouble getting the wax to adhere to these jars. I am using 464 golden brand wax, pouring between 145-150. We live in FL so the average temperature of the house is about 74/75. I have tried to cool these jars in different rooms of the home and nothing seems to be making a difference. ): I love these jars and so do my buyers but I have wasted wicks, stickers, and most importantly time because I have had to reheat and melt these back down to repour. I am heating them in the microwave to repour and this seems to work every time but just not logical. PLEASE HELP.

Awesome jars

Great size for candles. Love these jars!


Love these! 464 wax with ECO 10 wick works great!

Love my jelly jars

I make jellies and jam to sell at farmers markets. I live in NC so I drive and pick up my order . I have never had anything but a good experience from this company and the jars .And I Have recommended them to other friends. I love being able to buy local and save on shipping!

My New Go-To

For a while, I was using the metal tins for my candles, but a friend of mine suggested the jelly jars when I was looking for something new. I adore them! Their size is perfect and they burn well; I use the 464 Soy Wax with an ECO 12 wick. I will definitely be buying these from now on!

These jars are great for making a substantial candle that won't break the customer's bank. I had to do a lot of wick testing, though since the wick guide didn't give me the right suggestion. I started with GB 464 and Eco 10 Wick. My flame was large, the melt pool was greater than 1/2", there was mushrooming, and the candles smoked excessively when blown out. I then tested the Eco 8 and Eco 6 in the same shot. I still had Mushrooming and a dancing flame with the 8. The Eco 6 took a little longer to spread across the whole top, but after about 2 hours, it was burning cleanly with no mushrooming, a safe sized flame, and melt pool under 1/2". I'm excited to have the correct sized wicks now so I can start pumping out candles in this jar. Remember to order a wick sample pack and do your own testing.

Best Burn

Using an ECO-10 wick in GB464 Soy, half-pint jelly jars are the cleanest burning candles I have ever made - 1/2" melt pool to the sides of the glass without mushrooming or soot. Great variety of lids available to finish off the look.

Best Jars I have used

I love all of the Candlescience products I've purchased and used as well as these jars. Tried other jars as well but these are my favorite! Purchasing more after trying other jars!

Love these!

I have been using these 8 oz jelly jars for 3 years with ecosoya cb135 and an eco 8 wick. They burn evenly and great scent throw. Perfect match for my 4 oz jelly jars. Thank you :)

Wick Size

I use Eco14 wick with the jelly jar. Gb464 wax. Burns well and I get a great hot throw. Glass gets hot after a while but I like the melt pool.

8 oz jelly jars


I have used the 8 oz jelly jar now for about 15 years. I just took a jar and filled it almost to the top and it was a full 8 ounces. It is a very good selling jar.

Crystal, this jar is sized by fluid ounce, you are probably measuring your filled jar by the weight less the tare on the scale. Take a 1 cup measuring cup, fill with water and pour the water into your jar and I believe the jar will hold the entire cup of water.

not happy

This says it holds 8 oz well no it does not it holds 4.5 ounces and that clear to the top. Not happy about this, How am I gonna pass these off as being 8 oz. LIe LIe LIe

this is lovely n cute

i think it's perfect size for little gift.
i ordered 24bottles of 8oz.
i am satisfied.

Hi are the jars glass??

need to know

Can this jar fit in the tumbler box that you have? please any let me know , i need to place a big orders asap.

wick size

i purchased this jar and would like suggestion on wick preferences. which wick work best with this 8 oz jar

I use these jars with comfort blend & the LX wicks. The results are fab! They are easy to work with & the Comfort Blend adheres to them really well. They also look great with the rustic lid. Rustic yet elegant at the same time. :)

Great jars

These jars are easy to fill and label. The end results are awesome. I love the way that the IGI 4627 "comfort-blend" wax adheres to the sides.

Great Jars

I have been using this jar sents 2005 and have never had a problrm at all.
