Fill your home with the woodsy, clean scent of pure Bayberry wax candles. These sought-after candles make very special gifts. Each candle is 8 inches tall and 1 inch in diameter at the base.
In a historical context, bayberry wax candles figured prominently in early colonial America. For the colonists, cattle and hence, tallow, was in scarce supply. Fortunately, the bayberry bush was abundant along the coast of the New World. In the Fall, the berries from the plant were boiled in water. The wax that coats the berries would rise to the surface of the water. It was then skimmed off, filtered and made into candles that were of superior quality to those made from tallow.
