Ideas For Holders Or Containers To Use When Testing Your Candles

Looking for holders or containers to use when testing candles, similar to cupcake holders? While there may not be a specific product designed for this exact purpose, you can consider using small, heat-resistant containers or molds to hold and contain the melted wax while testing candles.

Here are a few options:

  1. Aluminum or Tin Molds: You can find small aluminum or tin molds that are typically used for baking or crafting. These can serve as makeshift holders for testing candles. Ensure they are heat-resistant and can withstand the temperature of melted wax.

  2. Silicone Molds: Silicone molds are flexible and heat-resistant. You can find various shapes and sizes, including cupcake shapes, which can be suitable for testing candles. The flexibility of silicone makes it easy to remove the hardened wax.

  3. Small Glass or Metal Containers: Look for small heat-resistant glass or metal containers that can withstand the heat of melted wax. These can be practical and reusable for candle testing.

  4. Tea Light Holders: Tea light holders are designed to hold small candles and can be suitable for testing purposes. They come in various materials, including glass and metal.

  5. Disposable Aluminum Baking Cups: Disposable aluminum baking cups, similar to those used for cupcakes, can be used as temporary holders for candle testing. Make sure they are placed on a heat-resistant surface. We call them our Candle Test Minis. Try them out!

  6. Plastic or Wax Melt Clamshells: Some candle makers use plastic clamshells or containers typically used for wax melts. These can be convenient for testing small quantities of candles.

Always prioritize safety when testing candles. Ensure that the containers or holders you choose can withstand the heat of the melted wax and that they are placed on a heat-resistant surface. Additionally, never leave melting wax unattended, and follow proper safety guidelines for candle making.
