Bayberry wax is a natural wax derived from the berries of the bayberry shrub. According to the New England tradition, burning bayberry candles in celebration of the New Year ensures health and prosperity for the coming year! Lighting the candle is timed so it won't burn out before midnight. It must be lit in one year and burn into the new one.
Although traditionally burned during the holidays, pure bayberry candles are gaining popularity year round. Customers enjoy bayberry for the natural wax, long burn time and light woodsy scent.
"A Bayberry candle burned to the socket brings food to the larder and gold to the pocket."
