    Default Candle tutorial #7: Heating your jars

    This is a step that I didn't really consider necessary the first time or 2 that I poured candles. Well, if you want your candles to look nice enough to give as gifts or even be seen around your home, it is. Warming the jars prevents air pockets from forming between the glass and the wax. Air pockets make the candles look strange.....believe me I know.
    I put hot water in my sink and just before I pour my candles I heat the jars for about 5 minutes. Don't get water inside the jars, dry out if you do (being very careful of those carefully placed wicks). Dry as you take them out of the sink and then get ready to pour.

    do you think it would be okay to warm the jars in a low oven that is barely turned on? I keep my jars warm this way when canning.

    I'm sure it would be (sorry I didn't see this until now.....a few years later.......oops).
