Handmade Recipes in SKS Candle Containers

May 2021

Handmade Recipes in SKS Candle Containers Our extensive line of candle containers is perfect for both the candle hobbyist or professional candle maker. SKS offers various glass candle jars, candle votives, and metal candle tins in multiple sizes, shapes, and colors. Glass jars are offered in clear, frosted, and amber, while metal tins can be found in silver or gold. As always, you should test your candle containers for compatibility and exercise caution when making or burning candles.


Homemade Soy and Beeswax Candles

Learn how to create different soy and beeswax candles with these simple tutorials from the Soap Deli News Blog. Soy wax and beeswax are great choices when making candles at home because they are made from environmentally friendly and renewable resources. In contrast, classic paraffin wax is made from petroleum and is non-renewable. Soy wax and beeswax are also non-toxic and burn cleaner than traditional candles and, therefore, emit less soot.

When making candles, it is essential to have the correct type of glass container to withstand the heat created while the handmade candle burns. For this reason, many candle makers prefer jelly jars or canning jars when choosing a candle container. During the canning process, glass jars are often sterilized and sealed using a hot water bath, with temperatures up to 180℉. Canning jars are made of thick glass to withstand these high temperatures, making them a good choice for housing hot candle wax. SKS offers a variety of glass jars that could be suitable for homemade candles.



Packaging Tip

HDPE Plastic

HDPE Plastic

HDPE, or high density polyethylene, is a higher density version of PE plastic. It is harder, stronger, and slightly heavier than LDPE and PE. HDPE is used in many packaging applications because it is lightweight, mildly stiff, impact resistant, and has great moisture barrier properties. HDPE plastic also has good resistance to chemicals, so it is commonly used to package many household and industrial cleaning products, including detergent, bleach, and acids. SKS offers HDPE plastic bottles in multiple shapes and sizes. These plastic bottles can be paired with a variety of closure options and come in natural, and white HDPE plastic.
