I also had the same problem with the wick stickers not sticking. At first I thought we needed to wash them all but who has time for that. If you'll wipe the bottom out with a little bit of alcohol before you put the wick and sticker in they'll hold just fine. To make things a little easier, I took a washcloth and wrapped it around a long spoon and secured it to the spoon so all I have to do is spray some alcohol on the washcloth rub it around the inside really fast and done. It works well for the bottom too if the warning labels aren't staying on.

New to candle making here...
Love the super cute 8 oz mason jars. I agree with another customer who states that 1 lb of wax is not enough to fill 3 8 oz mason jars.. More along the lines of almost 1.5 lbs.. Maybe we are doing something wrong. .Would eco 14 wicks using soy 464 be to large?
On the down side, packaging of the glass jars could use an upgrade. Large box received--no "FRAGILE" anywhere on outer box. 2 jars within my order were shattered and only a handful of packaging peanuts were used.
Thanks a bunch
Hi there! A member of our Support Team will be reaching out shortly!
I have only ever used these jars. I love them. However this last shipment one of them was broken and it looked like it was deliberately left in the box when packed as none of the other jars were broken, just the one. I have emailed Candlescience but have not heard a response just yet. Not sure what to do about this since it was only one but if every shipment has one like this from now on that would add up in the long run. It is one less that I will be able to sell since I can not pour it. I would give it a five star review as these are my favorite but it seems like packing and shipping has started to go downhill. If this continues I will be forced to buy elsewhere
Thank you for allowing us to help resolve the issue with your jars.
I love the square mason jars and so do my customers. I have found that heating the jars with a heat gun helps evaporate any moisture that may have accumulated on the jar, even if unseen. When I do this, no problems with the wicks sticking or other issues. Once the wax starts to turn solid, I cover the jars to help slow the cool-down, and this stops all the frosting of soy candles. I pour hot, but try to slow the cool down once the outside is solid. What my customers love, is the jars are reusable for canning or for storing herbs and the like. I always include brief instructions on the easiest way to clean the jars too, low heat in oven, poor remaining wax into a tart burner or other receptacle, clean with alcohol and paper or tissue, then wash as normal.
I ordered 4 boxes of these adorable jars and at least 1 jar was broken in each box.

These are cute little jars but one was broke and I didn't find them packed very well. Surprised there weren't more broken.
Thanks so much for leaving your review! We're sorry to hear one of your jars arrived damaged, however, a member of our support team has reached out to you to better assist you!
I love the jars, but I am having a hard time to get the wicks to stick to the bottom. Does anyone have a solution as to how to get it to stay on the bottom? The wax keeps getting under each sticker! I am getting frustrated and cannot sell my product!

I like the jars, they seem fine. Just wondering if anyone has any secrets on how to best secure the wicks to the bottom of the jar. The wick stickers don't work well with this glass and shape
What wick should I use with this??
Hi! The wick you'll want to use will depend on the type of wax you'll be using with this container. We'd be happy to offer suggestions or help to troubleshoot if you'd like to contact us at email@example.com!
I've been ordering supplies for my shop from Candle Science for over two years. They consistently have excellent products, super quick shipping and great prices. Recently, I ordered a few boxes of jars and one jar arrived broken. I contacted Candle Science and they responded as soon as they received my message! They went above and beyond to make things right and were so nice and understanding. Great customer service is so rare these days and SO appreciated! I am a customer FOR LIFE! Thank you so, so much...love this shop! :)
My issue is not with the jars. Info I've read throughout the site to the contrary, 1 lb of wax (16 oz) does not fill three 8 oz. jars. I was able to fill one jar nearly to the shoulder, and the other two are well below that. I believe it would take at least one and one-fourth lb. of wax to make an acceptable (not skimpy) presentation. The jars themselves are just as cute as pictured.
I love the look of these jars! I use them a lot around the holidays. If you are looking for a rustic style for your candles these fit the bill. They are great last minute gifts for customers that just want a little something.
Best Price and shipping..Love these jars and so will my customers!
These little jars are great! Even better now that they offer one that you can put labels on. They look very cute all done even though I only use white wax. Definitely worth the price.
My customers love these 8 oz. Mason Jars! I use the Rustic Lid and put a 2" round label on the lid. Because I do not color my wax, I tie colored raffia or ribbon around the neck of the jar to correspond with the name of the candle scent.
Pleasantly surprised with this jar. Easy to work with and wax looks beautiful once cooled. I prefer these jars WAY MORE than the tins. You can not beat the price either. Definitely impressed with the quality and service CS provides. Used with Rustic lids....looks AMAZING!!
When this jar had two smooth sides it was easy to label, therefore an easy 5 Star. Now that it has measurement symbols on what used to be the blank sides it has become impossible to label.
I prefer this shape over other 8 oz canning jars that are either too shallow or too deep. If you want to make a meaty medium sized candle with a good balance between diameter and depth, this is the jar for you. I used the Golden 464 soy wax and an Eco 14 wick and got a complete, even wax pool with beautiful curl to the wick. No mushrooming at 6.5% scent load with Holly Berry FO.
