Candle Jars

Durable, high quality glass jars in a variety of shapes and sizes. 

Can any glass jar be used for candles?

Glass containers can be used as candle jars.  The glass jar that you use depends on the type of look you are going for.   Which is why we offer a wide variety of options for you to choose from.

What jars are safe for candle jars?

Glass is the perfect material for candle jars as the material is non-flammable and non-porous.  The thicker the glass, the less likely it is going to crack making them safer.  Not all glasses are safe for candles such as wine glasses as they are less stable and more prone to cracking.

Can you use plastic jars for candles?

Generally, it is recommended to use glass candle jars as the material is non-flammable and non-porous.  It also doesn’t crack easily especially if you use thicker glasses.

So, what is the best jar for candles?

It depends on what you consider “best” so the first place to start is what is safe?  You will want thicker glass that is smooth and able to bear high heat.  Then you need to determine what looks the best for your candle purpose.  A wedding candle jar will be drastically different then a house candle jar.  

Then it comes down to shape and size of the candle itself.  Here are a few of our favorites:

I love [the 12.5 oz. Libbey Candle Container], they look really clean and minimalistic and chic. The glass looks thin which I like, but it’s not so fragile. I ship my candles in these and have never had a jar break in transit.
