"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. Light your bayberry candle late in the afternoon and allow it to burn down completely. 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.

Please note: These candles are not artificially scented. The only fragrance is from the natural bayberry wax. If you would like scented bayberry candles, please see the Colonial Candle scented bayberry candle gift set below.

Perfect for Our Traditions

From the time I was a child (I'm 60+), we followed the tradition of burning real bayberry candles down to the nub, little by little starting with Christmas Day and ending on January 6. I was delighted to find Candles on Main - we used to live in Columbia, MD - and was very happy with the 10" tapers as was my sister. Thank you for carrying the "real thing" and giving us our childhood traditions.

My mother burned a bayberry candle each Christmas Day until it went out on its own. We've tried to carry on that tradition.

These candles have been part of my Christmas tradition since the 1950s and I am very glad to have found a source. Candles Off Main is a terrific company to deal with. Thanks ofr brightening my holiday.
