Calculate Wax Weight for a Container Candle

To calculate a reasonable estimate of how much wax is required for a container candle, simply enter the specified weights below. You may use any units you like; lbs, ounces, or grams. The important thing is to use the same unit of measure in each box. For instance, if you enter the number of ounces in the first box, make sure you are thinking ounces when you enter the number for the second box.

Empty Weight of Container Enter the empty weight of the container. Use decimals if needed, for instance ten and a quarter ounces would be entered as 10.25. Do not enter words such as “grams” or “ounces.”

Filled Weight (with water) Using water, fill the container to the desired level that you would normally fill to if you had been pouring wax. Enter the filled weight of the container, using decimals if needed.

= Estimated weight of wax required.
