I'd love to start a candle business making candles from something that's recycled from the house such as a veggie can or something.

Any ideas?

Don't use veggie cans or anything metal. Metal will heat up become hot and unsafe. Anything plastic will melt and glass will need to be tempered correctly so it won't explode when hot.

I use mason jars and wash out old jelly jars.

Cardboard can catch on fire making it unsafe.

Quoting Sassy762:

1/2 gallon paper milk cartons, pringle chip cans

These would work well as they are tempered for heat.
