Tapered Bayberry Candles (Set of 8)
+ $ shipping surcharge
Ever seen a candleberry?
Bayberry wax, a natural vegetable wax found on the outside of the bayberry fruit, is blended with beeswax to create these 10" tapered candles. Each pair is wrapped with a paper sleeve and the following poem: "This Bayberry candle comes from a friend. So on this Holiday burn it down to the end. Because a Bayberry candle burned to its socket, brings good luck, good health and wealth to your pocket."
There is a light, resinous, scent from both the waxes, however there is nothing added to enhance the scent or color of the candles.
