Great jars! Happy they're back in stock!

Great jars! Just wanted to write a little note about what process works for me, because I see a lot of reviews on Candle Science complaining about product when I'm sure it's just their process that needs tweaking.

GB464 wax + CD18 wicks works best for me and give a full melt pool. Heating wax to 190ish, adding fragrance at 185, pouring at 135. Make sure all jars are warm when you pour your wax in. I even warm my pouring pitchers before I transfer wax from the wax melter into the pitchers. Keep the room you're pouring/curing them in warm as well so they slowly cool! I keep a small heater in the room and have it set to 75 degrees. Hope this helps anyone out there who is struggling! :-)

Every detail matters with candles, so don't give up! And don't be quick to write a review saying the product sucks before you make sure you're doing everything right...



So happy to have found these jars. I have had to revisit costs and pricing of my candles as a result of recent inflation on everything. My clients loved the jars and thought the product still looked great despite have to change containers last minute. I have the lug lids, which have all fit great. I have not experienced any broken jars. Thanks for delivering safely. I use soy 10, eco 10 wicks, and 9% fragrance oil in these jars and have no problems at all. Love them.

Great Jars

Decided to add a small line of candles to my soap and bath company and was looking for a decent size jar to fit my overall brand. These jars were just the thing. I've been testing some amazing Candle Science fragrances with a coconut/soy wax blend and wooden wicks, and they are performing beautifully! Can't wait to offer these to my customers this holiday season.


Great Jars

I got these jars to start my candle business, I love the size, one wick burns perfectly fully down the center :)

Great jars!

I love these jars. Just make sure you look at the recommended lids in the listing and get those. They will fit perfectly. Also, I do about 6.8 oz of wax for the fill line. These are some of my best sellers!

Wrong fill line information

Just from the look alone i love these glasses but while trying to do wick testing which is very frustrating by the way i realized that with the calculations i had to make with the wax and the fragrance oil the fill line info is incorrect. on here it says 5.8 for fill line but it stops at least half an inch away from the actual fill line. i found the jar on another site that stated the fill line is 7oz this fill line is more adequate.


Wick Recommendations

I like these jars but still have trouble with finding the correct wicks for 464 soy wax with 7% FO. Ive tested CD 10, CD 12, and ECO 10 wicks - CD 10 and CD 12 give a tunneling and no hot throw. ECO 10 wick seems to be working better for these jars but holds a small hot throw. I think I might try to use 10% FO. But I like CD wicks! Any recommendation??


Loving It

Thanks for the fast delivery and worthy product.



I’m so happy with my purchase! Super fast shipping sadly one jar was shattered! Overall definitely buying again!!!

My Scented Garden


Hi! I love these jars. The suggested lid doesn’t fit perfectly, but well enough that I and my customers are happy. A great jar for small candles!

I have been using these jars with the CD wick and 8% fragrance. It seems that the melt pool is too deep, if that makes sense. The top half inch is just melted wax and not a great HT. Should I try a different wick? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My new favorite!

So in love with these jars! If you do your measurements right, 1 lb 4 oz of wax plus 1.25 oz of fragrance, makes exactly three candles. Please please come back in stock today! That’s all I’m waiting on for my candle supply haul!


Beer jars

I love these jars! Please bring them back, they are part of my main candle line! The lid doesn’t fit, but my customers don’t care and they work great!

Size Help

These jars are really cute. However, I used 1 lb of the 464 soy wax and it only filled two candles. Could someone assist me with how much wax I need to do an order of candles with these jars? I’m confused

CandleScience Reply

Hi! Great question! These jars have a wax weight (to Fill Line) of 5.8 oz. This means each jar can hold up to 5.8 oz. of melted wax! Please reach out to us at if you have any other questions or concerns!


Im confused on how much 464 wax these containers hold. Are these 8oz or 9oz jars?

CandleScience Reply

Hi! These jars hold 5.8 oz of wax!

Candle jars

I ordered these jars and one came broke so I contacted the customer service and they replaced it no problem! The jars their self look so cool and I can’t wait to make my candles. Perfect purchase for me!


Love jar & lid

I love this jar and lid. I’m using soy 444 wax. I used the recommended CD14 and ECO 14 but both gave me a tunneling. I may have cut the wick too short but I really love the CD wicks... any recommendations

Great Jars, But Beware of Lidding Issues

I have ordered a handful of these jars. I wish I'd have seen the reviews first. You have two options for lids on CandleScience and none of them are black. Silver is the next best option for a 'neutral' color lid, but I'm not a fan of the style (or how shallow) the lids are. Regular canning lids DO NOT work, and so if you've got a handful of those ready to go, I'd say choose a different jar. For now, I'm going to order some of the #70 twist-top lids, but once I've sold these batches of candles and used these jars (since I hate wasting and so will have to find a way to use them), I'll be switching to something new (because shipping is absurd and so purchasing additional lids is a major inconvenience).


Love these jars, they are so cute and my customers love them as well. I use the CD 12 wick. I've received no complaints.


Wick sick

Loving these jars need help with finding the right wick I use the 464 soy wax cs can you please help. Thank you.


Wick sic

I have these jars would like to know which size Wick would you recommend me to use I use 464 soy wax I need help would appreciate it thank you.



Whiche wick burns better in this jar and with wax Igi 6006


Labels - size

What size are the labels being used in the community communication pictures?


Nice looking jars and gold lids fit nicely. The price is amazing and I’m happy with them. Thanks for the wick suggestion too !

Soyful candle scents

No lids on earth fit correctly

I don't know why CS is selling these jars - no lid fits them properly. Now I'm stuck with well over 100 jars and nothing to do with them. Stop selling these until you get appropriate lids please. The recommended silver and gold don't fit correctly, and no other lid does either. SUCH a disappointment.

CandleScience Reply

Hi! You may like our new threaded jars that are the same style. The threaded jars use a different style of lid which provides a more seamless fit. You can view them here:

Using C3 Wax, 8% FO. Would a good starting point be and ECO 10 for testing. It seems the ECO 8 is not enough. Your suggestions would appreciated.
Thanks. Noah.

CandleScience Reply

Hi Noah! Typically, we would recommend testing either a CD 12 or an ECO 12 for that wax and jar combination. I hope this helps, but if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our support team at any time at!


The diameter of this jar is stated at 2.83". Is this outside diameter? Would I test an ECO stated in your wick guide for 2.83" jar. Such as ECO 10 or 8. Your suggestion would be appreciated.


Has the lid issue been resolved

I would like to order these jars but based upon the reviews the lids are not a hit for this jar which is hindering m from purchasing them today. Any update? Or would anyone like to recommend a site that I can purchase the lids from if I do get them?
Thank you!

CandleScience Reply

Hi! These jars are compatible with #70 Twist Top Lids, which we carry in gold and silver. They are sometimes referred to as 70mm Lug Lids. These lids are designed specifically for this style of container and fit as shown in the photo above. They are often confused with 70G Threaded Lids, which do not fit this type of jar. For those that prefer the look of 70G Lids, we recommend using Mason, Jelly, or Canning Jars.

Black Lids Purchased Elsewhere

Other users - where are you purchasing the black lids for these jars? I love the jars but would have a much better product with a black lid that fits.


Show us the lids

These are awesome jars at a decent price problem is the lids provided by Candle Science are horribly ugly and cheap looking. I have been buying nice black lids elseware to complete our amazing high end look. Please consider giving your customers what they want and ask for Candle Science. Such a great company to only give us 75% I know your capable of 100%!


Great size Perfect for Big Labeling

These jars are my go to for my candle line. The 9oz (ish) size is perfect keeping pricing and sales moving, anything smaller didnt seem to move and anything bigger was too much.
Unfortunately my only complaint is I have to buy black lids from a different supplier. The gold or silver only options for these through candle science is sad they just make my Candles look cheap on the jars with my Labeling And since switching to the black lids sales have increased.


I Absolutely Love These Jars!!

I absolutely Love These Jars! They are 16oz jars and when I put my candles together and put the lid on them, they look just like the famous candles you see at Yankee or any other famous candle store. I love them! They are the perfect size and the lids are perfect as well! Love, Love, Love! These are the jars I'm sticking with! Thank you so much!!!


UPDATED: Recent change in color of glass

I just wanted to update my below review. Candle Science just called me to explain that the jars are made using partially recycled glass, and that sometimes depending on the recycled glass used, the tint can vary slightly. Although this isnt ideal for the look of my finished products, I was so pleased that they took the time to call and explain WHY this is happening made me want to write a second review and adjust my original rating. This is why I keep coming back to CS! I have never had a bad customer service experience.


Recent change in color of glass

I love these jars, I've been using them exclusively for about 2 years now. However, the last few dozen I ordered looked almost tinted! The class was much darker and not as clear as my previous ones. I have them side by side and the difference is really obvious. This also changes the appearance of the wax. I don't add any dye to mine, so the new jars make my wax appear to have almost a light green tint. I'm really disappointed, but I need the jars, so I don't have a choice.


Cannot Use

I have purchased straight side jars from other vendors to go with the #70 black upscale poly lids I already have. They've all fit perfectly, with no problem. I recently purchased straight side jars from Candle Science because they could get them to me in time to meet a deadline. My lids do not fit this jar. Service was good, shipping was fast, I just cannot use these jars. It apparently is not a standard jar.


Shop Owner

I've been using these jars for my candle business for about a year now, and I have absolutely no complaints! They're beautiful, straight jars, and even though the lids don't 'fit' perfectly, they still look quite nice. If you didn't know any better, you'd just think they were supposed to be that way. I do also wish that there were threaded lids for these, or that Candlescience would get some straight sided jars that the threaded lids worked on, but I still love these. I get compliments on my candles all the time!


why in the world would you show inexpensive jars with the "matching" lids that are not the right size??!?!


Love the jars, hate the lids. What is the chance of you selling a black lid like the one that comes with the jelly jars? Three stars only because they aren't useful for me as is.


Black lids

Would exclusively buy these if black lids were available


Ugly Lids

I wanted to buy these jars until I saw the ugly lids and from others' reviews, the lids also don't fit. The lids should be the same style as the mason jars and they exist in the market. Please change these lids. A small change that will for sure increase sales and customer satisfaction.


Seriously need lids to fit this

The lids are not a deal breaker, but the presentation of the candle would definitely look better if the lids fit properly.

I am not sure what fill line they are using but the candle holds 8 oz of wax to the fill line. (Which I the bottom of the ridges for the screw top). It holds the same amount as the mason jar.


love this jar!

i use these jars w the gold lid, so in love! sleek and modern.



We love these candles jars, size look, price, etc... The best thing about this candle is the burn quality we are getting using these containers. The dimensions of the jar are just perfect for burn and giving our customers the illusion of much larger candles even though we its close to the size of he tins and cheaper per unit.
The only con I can selfishly think of is I would love black lids, however the silver matches everything great.

Candles and Canvases

Awesome Jar

Since I started making soy candles, I used this jar. I think its cute and will look elegant. Well, my expectation was right.

Mary Grace

Cute Jars. Wish the lid fit

exactly what i was looking for to make my first candles! I read the previous reviews about the lids not quite fitting but figured id take my chances. they do technically fit. the lid goes on the container but the lid is a pop on kind of lid and the jar is meant to have a screw on lid. glad they added the disclaimer about this now so future buyers are aware of the problem but for a first timer i think theyre great! perfect size!



These jars are awesome. The lids have NO affect on how my candles turn out. They screw on and look nice! I do not regret adding these to my line!
