love them and the price is great!

I love these containers, they are cute, sturdy and affordable. I've ordered them multiple times and I haven't had problems labeling or wicking them, just make sure to wipe out the bottoms with alcohol or wipes for better adhesion. I buy the metal lids for these and affix the label to that.

Love these jars! But…

I love making candles on these jars, they give it a beautiful look and they work great. I love the clear glass and even the wording around it. But my last order arrived with a shattered jar, it was very disappointing because I pretty much depend on these jars to make/sell my candles. I’d hate to take a star away because the jars themselves are great so I won’t. But they are unreliable in arriving in good conditions which is something to consider.

Favorite Jars

These are by far my favorite jars I have gotten. Wicks are hard to stick, as I have seen in other reviews. Major problem is that I am out of jars and they are always out of stock, and take forever to restock. My next order should be like 1000 jars to last me for a while haha!!!! (Personal/friends and family making)

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.

Super cute

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

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

Fast Selling Jar, Affordable and Adorable

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.

Broken Jars

I ordered 4 boxes of these adorable jars and at least 1 jar was broken in each box.

Not packaged well

These are cute little jars but one was broke and I didn't find them packed very well. Surprised there weren't more broken.
