Welcome to the crafty side of Fillmore Container! In this post, we provide an over-view of the Candle, Bath & Body Resources
These are the containers that would be most suitable for candles. Depending on what type of candle you are creating, you may want to browse all of our containers. Many of our customers use a variety of jar styles for their bath & body products like hand crafted scrubs, creams, bath salts, oils and more! Please note whether or not a lid or cover is included. Covers/Lids/Closures are sold separately unless included by the manufacturer (i.e. Ball jars). When viewing the product page of a container, the closures that are designed to fit that container will show up in the “Accessories” tab. You can also find similar items under the “Related Items” tab. Lid size, volume and other important specs are found under the “Description” tab.
If all soy waxes were identical in relation to appearance and performance with all fragrances and/or dyes, the craft wouldn’t be quite as exciting! We are sure to pass along all handling recommendations that we receive from the manufacturers. Because each chandler has their individual vision of their end product, the handling suggestions become very basic to allow folks to test and pour in order to find their perfect combination. Community boards and our Facebook page are good ways to connect with other chandlers for tips.
TruScent full strength made-for-soy fragrance oils have been tested and formulated to perform well with soy wax. Fragrances are packaged in Amber bottles with phenolic polycone lids and are available in 1oz, 16oz and in some cases by the drum (10lb or 25lb; depending on the fragrance). Here are the Top Sellers 2019.
Our wicks are designed to work well in soy wax. We offer a High Temperature Paper wick and the Premier (textile-grade Cotton). We also carry 10″ wicks for prayer candle use. Getting the proper size that allows for the best burn in your candles is important! Our Wick Chart provides guidance for wick size based on the diameter of the container. Since the type of wax and variable such as fragrances, dyes and other additives may impact the burn, testing a small range of wicks may be necessary.
The proper tools can help your customers have a great experience with your candles and offer a value-added opportunity! We have wick trimmers, wick snuffers and wick dippers that will encourage them to maintain their candles and keep them performing well!
