I'm just popping in for a quick post about burning candles safely which have a candle hugger around them - a question raised wisely by Parsley - thanks!
I have candle jars in a couple of different sizes and at different stages of use so I tried them out to make sure they are good to use with woolfelt wrapped around them.
This first one is pretty new and the jar is taller than the size of the wraparound so it burnt away merrily for an hour with no problems.Now, I don't know about anyone else, but I don't burn candles for more than an hour at any one time as I'm wary of leaving them any longer in case the glass cracks.
The next candle I used is much older and about half used. It's in a smaller jar and I did notice that the sides of the jar were quite warm - not hot, but I still felt it was OK to leave it a bit longer but I personally wouldn't leave it more than an hour.
I have a friend who tells me that one of her customers bought a very well known brand candle jar and it cracked whilst burning so I'd rather be safe than sorry. So hope that helps and I'd be grateful for any other tips and advice.
Have a safe day!
