Bayberry Candles, Boxed
A traditional 8-inch boxed pair of hand-dipped True Bayberry Candles made using hand dipped method in the waxen berries of the bayberry shrub.
Candles are dipped by hand using an antique revolving candle stand and traditional early American methods. The candle stand holds a circle of 14 hoops called romaines. Each romaine is strung with wicking and dipped 25 to 30 times depending on the season of the year. A thicker coat of wax adheres to the wicking with each dip in colder weather.
Because of the method by which the candles are made, the color of the finished product may vary slightly.
