Love these tealight cups!

These are absolutely perfect! I prefer these clear plastic cups over the tin ones. They not only look better in your votives but they stack up great!
Before I made candles I used only these plastic cup votives. The tin ones always get bent up and look cheap in a clear votive.
I was thrilled when I saw these!
Another home run candle science!


These are sturdy and have little dots at the bottom to help position the wick while you pour your wax. I've bought several bags of these and have never run into any imperfections. I also like that they are clear and make the focus the color of the candle!

Love these cups, never had a problem with them. I have purchased thousands, and burned many tealights in them. They work very well with the container soy wax I use, they are durable, sturdy and recyclable!

Perfect cup but scent problem

This tealight cups are perfet. Beautiful cold throw but not hot throw at all. I've been adding fragrance oil (for 2 tealight cups 5ml) at the temperature of 185º F. Some at 170F(could this be a problem?) Pouring at 140F. Cured for 3 days.
Could it be wax problem? I'm using pure soy wax but with no brand( the only option I've found here in Russia) The melting temperature is 122F.- its the only information I have about this wax.
I've also made 8 ounce jar candles( maybe bigger size will give better hot throw), they are curing at the moment.
Will be thankfull for the help)

LOVE these cups. I have ordered them a couple of times and about to order another set!!


These work perfect! I have no issues with these and will be re-ordering. These are also perfect for samples!

A necessity!

My tealight candles are one of my best sellers currently and I cannot live without these tealight cups. I have has no issues with burning in them or the cups melting. I will be purchasing again and again.


I bought the plastic cups because they look so nice, & I follow the wick guideline strictly, On more then one occasion , my tea light cups have melted ~ Thats not good for my business~ maybe they need reevaluated or possibly a bum batch ~ Not sure but now I dont wont to take anymore risks


After approximately 20 tealights, one of the plastic molds actually melted through and stuck to the tealight holder it was in. Stick with metal cups...

great product

Love these guys! Will be purchasing again!

Great product!

As a beeswax candle maker, I have been using these tea light cups for quite awhile and have been very satisfied. They are very good quality, and I have never received any broken cups. They are also a great price. Highly recommend!

Superior quality at a low price!

Strong, thick, & crystal clear, these tealight cups are perfect! They are also by far the cheapest clear tealight cups that I have found online. As stated in the description, they hold 0.50 oz of wax or 0.55 oz if you fill them to the very top.


You will not be dissapointed! These are Perfect!

Perfect Tealights

These tealights are perfect for using up small amounts of wax when pouring candles. They are wonderful quality and so easy to use. Very professional looking and a great bargain. Perfect for using in holiday centerpieces!
