The subject of candle safety is a HUGE concern- if not the primary concern- to professional candle makers and candle companies and I don't think I've ever seen a post about it on this board.I HAVE seen some really bad advice that can lead new crafters to make dangerously over- wicked candles, use unsafe containers and the wildly irresponsible trend of throwing flammable materials all over the top of candles as some kind of "decoration".

If you are serious about candle making and especially if you intend to sell or give away your candles, PLEASE master the craft and science of producing safe candles before you worry about throw, melt pools...appearance. If your candle can't pass safety testing, nothing else matters.Here is a video by someone that used to do candle safety testing for major retailers.This. is. how. it's. done.If you watch this video and understand it, and use these standards to test your own candles, you will be on your way to making high quality and safe candles.

This could be an interesting opportunity for people who want a (vegan) eco friendly wax option for pillars and tapers.

Rice bran wax has been used for hundreds of years in Japan to make candles. According to multiple sources, it is 100% Rice Bran wax - no additives. I'm not sure how true this is.

It is probably not great for containers, because the wax is pretty hard. Luckily, there are plenty of blends for that.

If you can bleach and dye it (it looks like there's a way) and if it carries fragrance, Rice Bran wax could work quite well. In the US, it's the same price as the soy I use (not including shipping).

Thoughts?

EDIT: This company sells them

I have a general 8 oz jar and 8 oz tin for my product line. But I'm looking for more unique candle jars to sell at a slightly higher price point, to a younger, trendy crowd.

I've already purchased some from this site and I love them: https://woodenwick.com/product-category/unique-vessels/

Does anyone have any recommendations for beautiful, unique jars, that are affordable?
