Bayberry Wax: About 1lb
Bayberry wax was traditionally blended with beeswax for special Christmas tapers that are reputed to bring good luck for the New Year. Blending the two will also stretch the bayberry wax further, as it is quite strong when used by itself. When burned bayberry wax imparts a unique, earthy smell to the candles which should not be overridden with other fragrances. Bayberry is a green vegetable wax which is typically processed by boiling the berries of the wax myrtle shrub then skimming the filmy substance from the surface. Melting point is approximately 116 deg F (46 deg C).
