Cute, but bad for business

I’ve gotten nothing but negative feedback from customers. Either can’t get it lit, doesn’t stay lit, doesn’t burn all the way down. No one wants to have to buy a special lighter just for one or a few candles this small. And even then it’s not very wide to give the flame the breathing room it needs. Never buying again. Listing everything I already have in this size just for cosmetic.

Mini masons are the cutest jars on the market. I never really was a fan of mason jar candles and did not plan to add them to my line; however, these mini masons are a must-have. The recommended wick (LX 12) was perfect for my IG 6006 wax. I did a test with the ECO 1 as well, and that works too, but the best performance goes to LX 12. I only have two issues there was some soot, and you can't fit a wick trimmer in the jar. Maybe a tiny nail clipper can trim the wick, and also, it would be nice if the tops come in black.

the absolute cutest!!!

These little jars are so cute, I can't stop showing everyone my cutie little candles. I did have to do a fair amount of testing to find a small enough wick to work with it, however... I found some ECO 0.75 wicks that are longer and they work perfectly!!

Do not stay lit

I bought these thinking they would be a great addition but they do not work for candles. Starts off great but as soon as the flame goes under the rim they don’t stay lit. I am extremely disappointed. They are to small and don’t have enough oxygen. If you buy these do not plan on using for candles they will not work. They are a cute and great idea but don’t work and honestly should be taken off as jars for candles and used only as jars.

So Cute!

I love these jars! I do not recommend them for candles because they are extremely small. I use them for scented beads, but I am sure they'd be great for body care samples as well! If you're looking for an affordable jar for a smaller project or a sampler this is a great one to use.

Mini Mason Jars

I really wanted to love these new mini mason jars and planned on using them in my holiday line. I have tried the recommended wick and also another. These jars get too hot within the first hour of burning and I consider them a safety hazard. The only wick that I think may work would be a tea light wick if there was one long enough. I do not plan on selling them and the only thing I can think to use them for is to check for hot throw on specific fragrances.

Cute but Gets Hot

I have the same jar and the same size from another company with a handle on it. I tried the smallest size wick that Candle Science had to offer and even searched to find a smaller wick. They burn great but the wicks are too large. I would say the tealight wick (if it came in a longer size) would work better. But I am not going to make candles in them for sale - I will use my inventory for personal use because they get extremely HOT.

So adorable!

Very cute jars and I love using them in my line of candles. The burn has been great with the recommended wick as long as you make sure to follow usual burning guidelines like creating a melt pool for each burn and not burning them over 4 hours. The only issue I've found with these is they almost always frost the entire jar if I'm using any type of coloring. Love these regardless!

Wont waste my money on these again

I should of read the reviews first. l bought 2 cases of these because their adorable. Only problem is, they don't work! flame kept going out on its own, im assuming because its so small, and as the wicks goes down it suffocates the flame? Really upset about this. A complete waste.

I wanted to love these

I so wanted to love these and planned to use them as part of a holiday gift set. But I have tested two of the recommended wicks, and I continue to have problems with these mini mason jars. There simply isn’t enough space in the jar for the oxygen needed to stay lit. With the Eco 1 wicks, the candle burns beautifully for the first four hours and the scent throw is amazing. I was so hopeful. But when I lit the candle again with the wax midway down, it got so hot that it burned the inside of the jar and started to melt some of the label. The next morning I lit it again and it’s self-extinguished. I ordered four cases of these, the corresponding lids and wicks. Unfortunately, there is no way I can ask people to pay for these mini jars if they are going to get too hot or self-extinguish. Since shipping to return them would be costly, I guess I am going to use them as free samples. What a shame.
