There’s some interesting information on bayberry candles at Relaxation at Home’s website. For instance did you know it takes 15 pounds of bayberries to make 1 pound of wax? No wonder it’s so expensive. They’re perfect for dipped tapers, burn well and have a low melting point.
If you want to try making some hand dipped bayberry candles there are detailed instructions on Relaxation at Home’s site. See Taper Candle: How to Make Your Own for more.
