  • Bayberry 8″ Candle


Genuine 8″ bayberry candles, made from the wax on the bayberry shrub, have been the traditional holiday candles since colonial times. Burned to the nub on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, they bring good luck for the coming year.

This pair of bayberry candles are hand-dipped in the traditional Early American style.
