  • Store cream or small objects
  • Repackage larger containers
  • Take only what you need
  • Ideal for anti-chafe balm, moisturizer, lip balm, spices, or tinder


Mini Jars are for storing cream or small objects. Use them to repackage larger containers so you take only what you need on your trip. No sense taking a large container of something and only using a little bit.

The smaller 0.17 oz (5 ml) jars are perfect for cream such as anti-chafe balm, moisturizer, lip balm, or even spices. The larger 0.35 oz (10 ml) jars work well for tinder and other small objects as well as cream. The jars are translucent so you can see there’s something in it and how much is left. Be sure to mark the jar with what’s inside using a permanent marker, tape, or label.

The cap screws on and off for easy access. The bottom of the jar is rounded so you can always scrape the last bit out. When closed tightly, these jars won’t leak in your pack. Available in clear, violet, yellow, or green. Choose your favorite color or use the color to indicate the contents.

    Extremely useful

    Posted by Paul on 8th May 2023

    These jars are great. I've ordered them twice. I've used them for insect repellent, toothpaste, ibuprofen and foot balm. You usually only need small quantities of this things, and these jars are the perfect size. Very light too.

    Love the large size - easy to open & close

    Posted by Devra O'Gara on 19th Sep 2022

    I love these - large holds a surprising quantity of stuff. And the screw-on lids connect together easily. Gives me more room in my pack, as not carrying larger containers.

    Love These

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Jul 2022

    I’d been carrying travel size toothpaste, sunscreen and other sundries. Not that they were that heavy but they took up space and I always brought them home barely used. These mini jars hold enough for a week or more and take up almost no space at all. Thanks for making my pack a bit lighter and easier to organize.

    Best Ever

    Posted by Monty M on 3rd Jul 2022

    My wife and I both love these! They are extremely light and seal well. We use them for deodorant, powder tooth paste, hand lotion, face scrub and anti-chafe cream. They are by far the best option we have ever found.

    perfect little container for so many things!

    Posted by Valjean on 15th Jun 2022

    I use for salt, electrolyte powder, spices, and balms. I think I've ordered a few in each of my past three orders. I really like that these containers are rounded on all sides, it helps them fit easily into hip belt pockets, fanny packs, and other small pockets without catching on anything.

    simple and needed

    Posted by Unknown on 6th May 2022

    I use these to repackage things like Carmex lip balm. They are lighter than the original container and very easy to use. Just what I was going for!

    Dropped crazy grams

    Posted by Ryan Johnson on 7th Nov 2021

    Took my vasoline game to a whole new level. Previously I carried a travel pack of vasoline for my diddly bits and chafes, for around 70 ish grams, now my total package for a good week long outing is 9 grams. The jar seems like it will hold up just fine.

    Surprising sturdy little jars

    Posted by Derrick Bowles on 12th Jan 2021

    I got these to keep in a personal care pouch that’s always in my backpack. It’s got some hygiene basics like a toothbrush/toothpaste and deodorant, among other things. I wanted a way to keep some Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and some extras of my prescription pills in case I walk out of the house and forget them. Based on the photos, I expected them to be kind of flimsy little jars that would wear out fairly quickly, but I also didn’t expect to have to use them much and figured they would be good enough. I was wrong. They are made of really sturdy plastic. They have a lot of strength, and the seem to be made to last. If you are looking for some type of small container for things like pills or any other small item, this is the thing to buy. I really like them, and I’ll probably buy a few more for keeping mints in my kit and toothpaste capsules for camping.

    Excellent. Didn't know you needed until you have

    Posted by Shelley Chacon on 29th Nov 2020

    Handy, sturdy, don't leak. Rounded bottom corners so easy to use all product wiping out with finger. Easy to clean. I bought these for small amount of hand cream. Great. Now just bought several more as I didn't realize I needed. Use for pills as won't crush (can also use the "hinge-top containers". Just try one!

    Super handy!

    Posted by Kathy on 30th Jun 2017

    These are handy little containers that close securely, and can store a lot of different things. I use them to store the toothpaste tablets, (purchased here at Litesmith) and don't have to worry about them getting crushed. Super lightweight too!
