Is encasing a candle with a glass cup okay

Great! Share this article  

Some people like to put a glass cup over their pillar candles. I personally don't think this is a good idea because it can cause the flame to get too hot and potentially start a fire. However, there are some options for safely using these types of candles.

The short answer is yes, it is okay to put a glass cup over a candle.

However, there are some things that you need to know about using glass cups over candles.

  • Candle safety is important!
  • When burning a candle, safety should always be your first concern. To ensure you are taking all precautions necessary in keeping yourself and those around you safe, please make sure that:
  • You place the glass cup on an even surface when burning your candle (you don't want it falling off or tipping over while lit).
  • You use proper lighting materials when lighting your candle (a match or long lighter will do).
  • If possible, keep children and pets away from lit candles at all times as they can pose serious fire hazards if left unattended or improperly used/lit by younger children who may play with them unsupervisedly while running around playing games like hide-and-seek with their friends!

Whether or not it will be safe depends on how large the cup is compared to the candle itself.

If the cup is too large, it can cause the flame to reach too high and touch the cup’s sides. This can cause the glass to get hot enough to shatter, which can dump out hot wax, possibly causing a fire.

Although it may seem like a safe way to encase your candle, there are a few drawbacks to consider.

  • The glass can get hot enough to shatter and dump out hot wax, possibly starting a fire.
  • If the flame reaches the wick, it will burn until all of the wax is used up or until all of the liquid fuel (e.g., paraffin) has evaporated, which makes it more likely that this will happen sooner than later if you're using pure paraffin in your candle rather than soybean wax or beeswax as an alternative fuel source.[1]
  • The flame isn't able to fully encircle your candle because there isn't enough space between the glass cup and its outer edge; this means that some areas of your candle won't be getting enough oxygen for combustion purposes.[2]

If you are looking for a safer option, then you'll want to look for pillar candles that are designed to be used in glass casings. The safest way to use a glass encased pillar candle is by using one that is designed for this purpose.

These are made with a wider base at the bottom and narrower top portion so air can circulate inside the casing.

The candle is designed to be used with this type of casing. This allows for proper ventilation, preventing overheating and fire danger.

Look for pillar candles that are designed to be used in glass casings if you want added protection against fire.

If you're looking for added protection against fire, look for pillar candles that are designed to be used in glass casings. Pillar candles are wider at the bottom and narrower at the top, which allows air to circulate inside of them. This helps prevent the flame from getting too hot and causing damage to your home or furniture while it burns.

You can also place a glass cup over a regular candle if you'd like some extra protection against fire. However, I recommend only doing this if there's something flammable nearby (like carpeting) or if there will be children around who could knock over the vase and start something on fire by accident!

We hope this information has helped you make an informed decision about whether or not to use glass encasement for your candles. If you do decide to use candles in glass casings, please remember that they need the proper ventilation and size so they do not burst into flames.
