Candle, Bath & Body Resources

Welcome to the crafty side of Fillmore Container! In this post, we provide an over-view of the Candle, Bath & Body Resources

bath-imageCandle Containers

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.

Container Closures

lids from fillmore containerWe have a wide variety of closures:

  • Metal lids with plastisol liners- good for products that you do not want leaking – like scrubs or liquids. They container a food-safe plastisol barrier against the rim of the jar. In applications with liquids, the CT (continuous thread) lids are recommended because they can be applied more tightly. Candle Toppers-Fillmore Container
  • Metal lids that are unlined-  good as a decorative topper to your candle or craft
  • Metal lids with a pulp/poly liner (available separately if you wish to add it to an unlined lid) good for bath salts, potpourri.
  • Plastic lids with foam liners – good for scrubs & creams.
  • Plastic dust covers– good for protecting your candle while allowing full visibility & scent testing.

Candle Wax

We currently carry wax from premium soy wax and coconut wax producers: NatureWax and Golden Brands. Our Wax Properties Chart can be helpful in your decision making. soy-wax-flakes

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.

Fragrance Oil Truscent Fragrance

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.

Candle Wicks Wicks

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.

    Great recommends. One resource I’d suggest is http://coogarproducts.com/. They have big batch equipment like melters, pumpers for fragrances, etc that make life easier. I have liked them better than others on the market. I’m not sure if everyone reading this post needs industrial equipment, but if anyone does, I’d highly recommend this company!

    Do you have a sampler kit of all the fragances? I would love to buy it if you have, instead of buying 1oz of every single one.

      The 1oz sample size is the smallest volume we have available. If you’re local, we’d encourage you to stop by our facility where you can smell them. We do take & fill orders there in the office.
