Real Bayberry Wax Candles, Tapers, Pillars and Votives

Proudly Carrying on An American Tradition

Bayberry wax is a pale green brittle wax derived from plants (trees? Shrubs?) that the early settlers found in New England. In colonial times, bayberry was a welcome change from the animal tallow candles used every day. As such, bayberry candles became a holiday tradition, often given as gifts, and highly prized by giver and receiver alike.

CandleSmith’s bayberry pillars are mindfully made of a real bayberry, beeswax and soy blend or a bayberry, paraffin and soy blend. All have lead-free wicks. CandleSmith bayberry candles are good for you and good for the planet!

Each candle is individually poured or hand dipped, following the time-honored colonial tradition.  While we take care to make sure your order of multiple candles are matched, there may be naturally occurring variations.
