Understanding Candle Making Jars

If you are looking for a safe and reliable method for holding your candles, then I strongly suggest that you consider using candle making jars. They can prove to be great for transforming your candle into an outstanding decoration.

Contrary to what you may have heard, there is no such thing as a jar that is specifically for candle making. Please don’t let the people at the craft store fool you. Don’t get me wrong, you might find some really nice jars there. Physically, those jars are no different than any other jar you could find.

Any heat resistant container can be used for your candle. You may have a very nice container that is not heat resistant. I highly recommend that you do not use it. I prefer using glass. Clear glass gives me more flexibility for decorating. I love the way they allow of the color of the candle to be shown.

Make sure that your jars are clean and free from any cracks before using them. Cracks could prove to be very detrimental to your entire experience.

The inside of your jar needs to be completely dry before you pour the wax. Moisture inside of the jar can prevent the wax from sticking to the jar. I suggest you heat that jar in an oven at 150-175 degrees for about 10 minutes.

If you love to add some flair to your candles, then you will love wax jars. These jars allow you to incorporate many different elements like stickers, ribbons and flowers to your presentation.

Candle making jars allow us to be as creative as we want to be. Have fun and let your imagination flow!
