What Are Tinned Candles?

Simplicity at its finest! Tinned candles are simply candles that are housed in a metal container. These metal containers can vary in size, from compact travel tins to larger, more decorative options that can be repurposed for other uses. But it's not just about the aesthetics - these candles also emit delightful scents that can create a serene and inviting atmosphere in any space.

One of the best things about scented tinned candles is the variety of fragrances available. You can choose from fruity and floral notes to more musky and woody aromas, depending on your mood and preferences. Whether you want to unwind after a long day or set the mood for a special occasion, there's a scent out there for everyone.

Benefits of Tinned Candles

One of the biggest benefits of tinned candles is their portability. Whether you're travelling, heading to a friend's house, or just moving from your living room to your bedroom, tinned candles are easy to take with you. They also come with a lid, which makes them great for outdoor use since they won't get blown out by the wind.

Tinned candles have a wide range of scents available. From warm and cosy scents like vanilla and cinnamon to fresh and airy scents like sea salt and lavender, there is a tinned candle for every mood and occasion.

Tips for Using Tinned Candles

To get the most out of your tinned candles, it's important to use them correctly. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Trim the wick before lighting to prevent smoke and soot
  • Allow the wax to melt evenly across the surface before blowing out the candle
  • Keep the candle away from drafts to prevent uneven burning
  • Use a snuffer to extinguish the flame rather than blowing it out to prevent hot wax from splattering

Are Tin Candles Safer Than Glass?

Candles in a tin are generally considered as the safer option since they're less likely to break or shatter if they're accidentally knocked over. This means they pose less of a risk of fires or injuries from broken glass. Plus, tinned candles can be made with a wider base which provides more stability, making them less likely to tip over.

Whilst tinned candles are a fantastic option for those seeking style and practicality, glass candles also have their advantages. For instance, they can be made with thicker and sturdier glass, which is less likely to break or shatter. Additionally, glass candles offer the benefit of being able to see the flame.

No matter what kind of candle you're into, safety should always come first. So, remember to keep your candles away from anything that could catch fire, trim those wicks to a safe length, and never, ever leave a burning candle alone.

Candle Tins with Lids

One of the key benefits of candle tins with lids is the added protection they offer to the candle. The lid helps to keep dust and debris at bay, ensuring that the candle remains in pristine condition for longer. This is particularly useful for those who like to stock up on candles or hand them out as a gift, which are cute little hamper fillers.

Tinned candles are also an ideal choice for those who travel frequently. The lid provides an added layer of protection, No need to worry about wrapping those glass candles during transportation, the compact size and portability of tinned candles make them easy to pack and take with you on the go.

Another great advantage of candle tins with lids is their suitability for outdoor use. Whether you're enjoying a picnic or sitting on your patio, the lid helps to protect the candle from wind and other outdoor elements. This means you can enjoy your candle outside without worrying about it being blown out or waterlogged in the british weather.

Are Tin Cans Good for Candles?

Tin cans are an excellent choice for candles because they are heat-resistant and won't crack or break under high temperatures. Not only that, but tin cans also boast an eco-friendly edge, thanks to their recyclability post-use. For those looking to invest in a sustainable and practical candle option that prioritises safety and longevity, tins cans are undoubtedly an excellent choice.

How Long Does a Tin Candle Last?

The burn time of a tin candle depends on its size and the type of wax used. However, on average, a small candle tin can last between 20-30 hours, while larger tins can burn for up to 50-60 hours.

Of course, how long your tinned candle lasts ultimately depends on how you use it. Are you burning it for a quick dip in the bath, or are you indulging in a full-blown candlelit dinner and movie marathon? Just remember to blow out the flame before drifting off to sleep, we know how things get heated in the moment - we've all been there! but let's keep it safe and get the most out of your candle.
