Would it be safe to place a candle on top of our cast iron stove?
Would putting a candle in a glass jar on our cast iron stove be the same as having a candle on a warmer? I don't like burning candles cause sometimes I forget they're lit... It was a gift and smells really nice.

Is the glass jar heat resistant enough?
Is that an electric stove or a wood stove. As long as the top doesn't get hot enough to melt the wax, it should be safe. If its a wood stove, I would say no.
I would cut the candle out of the glass jar and get a small heavy cast iron skillet or pot and use that... any other vessel will get to hot. I have a small little cast iron pot that I use....
No, it's not safe !!! Rather sprinkle a few drops of essential oil on the stove.
Do not risk it, you could burn your house down!
Wax will ignite at a high temp. I make candles I know the risk.
I would lnot advise doing it. Depending on how hot the stove gets it could actually crack the glass and the wax would then run all over the top of the stove and down into the fire area causing a real safety concern.
