Charming mini tapers made of authentic bayberry wax with a bit of beeswax for all of your upcoming holiday favor and gift needs!
A pair of mini tapers is packaged in a darling, reusable muslin bag ready for gifting or as a hostess gift. Some people use these in the bag as ornaments (unlit of course!).
The muslin drawstring bag measures approximately 4" x 6". The bags size and color may vary slightly. I stamp each bag with our logos with red ink.
Enhance your home during the holidays with the New England Tradition! You may choose to omit or enclose the poem.
This bayberry candle comes from a friend
On a special occasion burn it down to the end.
For a bayberry candle burned to the socket,
will bring joy to the heart and gold to the pocket.
In early Colonial times supplies for survival were in short supply. Traditionally the women of the house were responsible for gathering things to help the family survive the long, hard winters. Bayberry shrubs grew in abundance on the shores. People quickly learned that the berries of the shrub contained a wax that was valuable for candles to illuminate the home.
Bayberry wax is one of the rarest and most expensive waxes known in today's market. Berries of the Myrtle shrub are gathered as they were in early Colonial days, then painstakingly boiled to release the wax that has been a traditional mainstay during the holidays to bring heath and wealth in the new year.
Our Bayberry candles are made of real bayberry wax, not a bayberry colored or scented substitute. Bayberry wax is extremely brittle on its own. To protect your investment, we blend just the right amount of pure beeswax to ensure that your candles will burn bright and clean and not easily shatter.
Enjoy the color and gentle bayberry aroma as you burn these candles inviting health and good luck into your home on any holiday you wish (I like to increase my chances of good luck and burn them on every holiday!). Make it a tradition in your home, and in the homes of your loved ones. These make wonderful hostess gifts and gifts for the people who already have everything.
Bayberry Tapers are sold by the pair with a copy of the legend enclosed. I shrink wrap each pair together to help protect them in shipment. Each taper order is lovingly packaged in tissue and kraft eco wrap tied with jute twine for a perfect rustic look. The tissue color varies. By request each set can be wrapped individually.
