"A bayberry candle, burned to the socket, puts luck in the home, food in the larder, and gold in the pocket." - a New England tradition
Bayberry candles are made from the wax of the bayberry plant that grows in New England and in the Southeast. They are traditionally burned on Christmas Eve and/or New Years Eve for good luck for the coming year. You may see a light white coating that is a natural tendency for these all-natural candles. You can buff them back to a sheen with a soft cloth.
