Candle Refills are an eco-friendly and cost-effective option, as you can reuse your containers instead of buying new ones. These molds are designed to fit into existing containers and can be used to create new candles with the same shape and size as your original candles. When deciding to add candle refills to your lineup in conjunction with our jars there are a few things to consider.
All our refills to be used with our jars have a small tolerance for fit. When your customers use the refills we want to make sure they are not squeezing them in, with a chance to break the jars.
All our refills are assuming some level of wax shrink when you make them. When wax is heated and liquified, it expands which increases its volume. As it cools it contracts and takes up less volume.
If you are having trouble with fit, consider an alternative wax.
- Beeswax and paraffin wax have higher shrink rates.
- Our molds can withstand temperatures as high as 400°F. The temperature you pour and the rate it cools can all change the amount of shrink.
Medium for your Jars
As outlined on the listing, mold shrink is a consideration. If you do use a harsher medium, such as Cement All, it can shrink your molds. All our refills are made to fit our molds as shipped.
