Scented Glass Jar Candles
Our scented glass jar candles have been the #1 favourite since our beginning.
Made with 100% palm wax in a heat resistant glass jar with lid, these candles are scented with top quality scents. Because of the wax we use, all have strong patterns running through them.
Candles are always a compromise between flame strength and burn time, which is determined by the thickness of the wick. A well designed container candle will consume all of the wax in the container, leaving no unsightly wax behind on the sides.
We have decided to fall on the side of the strong flame. We have figured most people would prefer a strong burning candle. So we use a larger than recommended wick, which has the added advantage of consuming all of the wax. The total burn time of the candle is reduced, but that is the compromise.
We make a range of scent/colour combinations, listed below. Some are displayed to the right.
At $6 (plus postage) these top quality candles are ridiculously cheap. We’re happy as long as we can make enough money to keep helping the children.

CONTAINER CANDLE HINTS
These comments relate to any container candle, not just our own.
A container candle should melt the wax pool out to the edge of the container (in our case, glass jar). You should not light a container candle and blow it out before the wax pool has reached the edge.
When the wax pool reaches the edge of the jar, you will have a level surface on your candle. When you blow it out it will set level, so when you relight it, it has a level start.
If you blow the candle out before the wax pool reaches the edge, the wax will not set level. There will be a crater in the wax. When you light it next time, it will start a new crater in the centre. When that new melt pool reaches the old crater and melts it, too much molten wax is released into the melt pool. In extreme cases it can result in drowning the wick.
If you have container candles that already suffer this problem, scrape out enough wax so when the level melt pool is created, the wick won’t be drowned. It is messy, but it will work. If the wick is already drowned you will need to dig it out of its waxy grave.
In order to keep our candles as clean as possible, there are no additives in the wax to handle excessive sunlight. You should not store these candles where they will get direct sunlight in them regularly or for any extended time, or they will discolour.
