Hi,  Can you use 'normal' glass jars for candles - pouring the candle wax direct into the glass jar?  or can the heat of the melted wax shatter the glass?

I am not sure (no experience to say) but lots of candles are in glass jars.  Does the glass get hot enough to be problematic I wonder?

The advice I've seen is that any glass that is dishwasher safe (should be true for most jars) is OK for candles.
