Frequently Asked Questions

Can any glass jar be used for candles?

In short, yes. Glass is manufactured at a very high temperature and most glass is extremely heat resistant. It is important to ensure the glass is not directly above the flame to prevent cracking.

What glass is suitable for candle making?

Glass candle jars are the best for candle making, but a variety of others are also used successfully including ointment jars, powder jars and balm jars.

Can a candle flame break glass?

If the flame is directly beneath the candle, the temperature may be too hot for the glass to withstand and cause the glass to crack.

Do you need special glass to make candles?

No special glass is required to make candles.

What temperature does glass break?

Glass typically used in windows will fracture between 70-90 degrees Celsius, but tempered glass will withstand up to 240 degrees Celsius.

How much heat can a glass jar take?

Usually, glass sheeting that has been tempered has completely smooth edges due to the extra processing it goes through, while other types of glass usually have scuffed or ridged edges. Tempered Glass is about four times stronger than regular class and is known for its safety. And, unlike regular glass, tempered glass fractures into small, relatively harmless pieces. This is possible because during the annealing process the glass is cooled down slowly, which makes the glass much stronger.
