Why we love jar candles

When it comes to scented candle types, jar candles might just be our favourite. Here are a few reasons why:

  • They burn without mess - The jar will contain any wax drips that would normally come about when burning a taper or pillar candle.
  • They come in a wide range of colours - The containers used for our jar candles come in a wide range of colours and patterns, allowing you to easily find a jar candle that matches your room's decor.
  • They are easy to move around - You can pick up and move jar candles easily, compared to pillar and taper candles, as you don't need to worry about scratching or denting the wax. You can even move them when lit, but this should still be done slowly and carefully.

They're also the easiest kind of scented candle to make! Check out our guide for how to make a container candle here.

Jar candle FAQs

Are jar candles safe?

Jar candles are a safer option than uncontained candles, as their jar will contain any wax drips and can also help keep the flame under control. Both short and tall jar candles are equally safe for use in the home.

How to make a candle in a jar

Once you have melted your candle wax, attach the wick to the empty container and then carefully pour your wax into the jar. Let the candle dry in a cool dry space until the wax has completely hardened. Trim the wick before lighting.

What are jar candles made from?

The jars of container candles are usually made from glass, but you can also find jars made from ceramic, clay or tin. Each container material should be heat-resistant and leak-proof.

What Else Can I Find At Spotlight?

You can find many other kinds of candles at Spotlight, including:

  • Pillar and taper candles: These tall, elegant candles are often seen at formal dinners or in churches and restaurants, and while they are available in a rainbow of colours you'll most commonly see them in white or cream.
  • Shaped candles: These candles come in unique shapes and are just as much a work of art as a source of light!
  • Tealight candles: These small candles are ideal for opposing into a lantern or decorative container, and can even be floated on water.
