Scented Jar Candles, The First Soy Candle

Back in the day, when Michael Richards "the father of the soy candle" was pouring the first soy candle. I bet it was in a glass jar. Of course I don't know for sure, I wasn't there, I wish I was. For more on the History of Soy and Michael Richards

Scented soy candle jars

Jar candles come in all shapes, sizes, colors. Just about any jar that can withstand heat can become a jar candle.

Let's list the most popular:

  • Mason Jars
  • Jelly Jars
  • Apothecary Jars

Just about any jar imaginable can be used or sold for burning candles it's what's in the jar that counts. As long as your jar candles are all soy or a blend of all natural waxes everything is cool.

Which Jar Candle is the best?

Apothecary soy jars

Of all the jars listed above the most popular is probably the apothecary jar (opens in new window). None are really better than the other. The jar with the stopper top, is easy to remove and put back on.

So it keeps your scented candle fresh and all that delicious aroma locked away when not burning or just naturally throwing off a slight aroma without being burnt.

To try one of the cleanest burning candles in the country our store has over 90 delicious fragrances (opens in new window).

Your website is incredible!!!! I learned much. I chuckled when you stated to not expect your "first pour" to be perfect.

LOL My first pour was last week and was mediocre. Try try again. Right?

Thanks, Linda
