  1. Thanks, everyone, I went to the Dollar Tree and you were right the sales associate showed me some glasses that I would say is good for preserving jam but too thin for candles. If anyone has any other suggestions to order jars from please let me know. I'd hate to gift a candle to someone and the jar breaks because of having the wrong type of jar.
  2. Thanks, we do have Dollar Tree, I will have to do a little more looking. I was there last week and could not find any glass jars with lids. I'll try another location. Also, thanks for the heads up on the tins.
  3. Hello Everyone, I recently started making candles as a hobby, and I made some for my church, as a result, a few people have asked me to make a candle from them pushing me out of my hobby comfort zone. Currently, I am using 464 wax, and eco wicks (which I am going to try another wick), and 6oz mason jars. I saw some cute metal tins on sale at TJ Max and decided to give them a try. Friday I made some vanilla scented 4oz candles in tins. My question is, what's the preferred container for candles glass jars or tins. Also, I live in New Orleans and have not found a local glass jar distributor, I have noticed the shipping on them to be expensive. Does anyone have container supplier recommendations? Thanks in advance for helping a newbie out.
  4. Hello everyone! I am brand new to making candles. I have been vacillating for quite some time, and finally decided to give it a try. Initially, I ordered a candle kit, and my first batch came out alright. Now I am in the trial and error phase of finding the best soy wax, learning about additives, and where to purchase the best cost efficient jars from. I like the colored candles, but I have decided to focus on having a good scent throw candles for now. I'm very glad I came across this site, I've been reading all evening.
