Types of jars for container candles
Apothecary jars are wide, round jars with nicely rounded rims. These jars come equipped with glass caps.
Glass bowls are much larger than apothecary jars. Sides can be round and slanted or completely straight from the rim to the bottom.
Glass cylinder jars
Cylinder jars are the most commonly used container candles because they are thick-walled and have a high capacity. Some variants have nicely curved rims to enhance the appearance of the flame.
Candle pots are egg-shaped glass containers that beautifully enhance the presentation of colored wax. Candle pots come in different sizes; the large candle pots can handle half a liter of candle wax. These pots have glass lids and can hold melted residual wax for later use.
Gourmet glass jars
Gourmet glass jars resemble facial cream containers. These jars have stout, rounded centers, simply perfect for aromatic candles.
Lucida glass jars
Lucida glass jars are like cylinder jars, but they have thicker and more rounded walls. They are also generally shorter than cylinder jars.
Square glass jars
Square glass jars can create the perfect combination of shapes in a candle collection. The accented edges of square glass jars will bring out the chosen color for the candle wax.
Roman jars resemble regular flower vases because of their progressively narrowing bodies. Instead of pouring the wax all the way to the rim of the glass jar, pour it all the way to the middle, allowing the light to shine through.
Votive candle containers
Votive containers are among the small and thick-walled glass containers around. They were specially designed for votive candles because their shape enhances the presentation of the candle itself.
