These days there are many types of containers for candles but candles in glass jars are currently the most popular type of container. The glass needs to withstand quite high temperatures so not all glass jars are suitable for candles. Bone fide candle companies will only supply candles in purpose made jars for candles.
Currently we use two types of candle containers, candles in glass jars and candles in tins (more information on our candles in tins). Our handmade candles in glass jars, including the luxury Geo Cut Glass and 3-wick candles are hand poured into heavy bottomed, high quality and beautiful glass jars.
our 'signature' handmade candles are hand poured into heavy bottomed, straight sided matt Grey or matt White glass jars. These candles are topped with an oak lid that can also be used as a coaster when burning your candle. Finished with a wooden wick.

Candles in Glass jars - Questions and Answers
Q1. Is glass safe for candle jars?
Class is currently the most popular container for candles. As the glass has to withstand quite high temperatures, make sure you buy your candles from bone fide places.
Q2. Do candles burn better in tin or glass?
Candle waxes burn at different temperatures. For example, glass jars are more heat resistant than tins. As long as the wax is suitable for the container, candles in glass jars burn equally well as candles in tins.
Q3. Can candle glass jars get too hot and shatter?
Assuming the candle has a suitable glass container it is unlikely but still possible. It is recommended that as the wax gets to the bottom of the container, you should stop burning it. Leaving a little layer of wax will stop the wick burring right down to the glass. A 1 cm layer of wax will do it.
