Bayberry Candles made from
Bayberry Wax are Naturally Aromatic
Colonial America Started the Trend
Bayberry wax is a naturally aromatic and enjoys a great history. The interesting thing about this wax is that it was used to make bayberry candles in colonial America.
Out To The Bayberry Patch
Colonial women would gather the berries from the bayberry bushes that are native to the northeast, down to Florida and as far east as Texas. This wax is scented naturally. No scenting or color added that I know of.
The colonial women would boil the berries in water, to separate the wax. Then dipped over and over again to form the tapered candle. Even though some manufacturing innovations and molds have been used. There are still those who make the colonial candles the old fashioned way.
These candles have a natural sage color. They have a natural, subtle sweet berry scent. They have the low soot quality, the same as all natural waxes.
"Tradition still runs strong"
It was and still is today a northeast tradition to burn them during the Christmas season. This is not a religious ceremony, it's a northeast tradition.
