Our 12 inch Bayberry scented holiday taper candles are pefect to use at Christmas because of the wonder smell and green color. There is an old poem that traditionally went with Bayberry tapers that read, “A Bayberry candle burned to the socket brings health to the body and wealth to the pocket.” The Bayberry fragrance is one of our most popular scents during the late fall and winter months. The pair of scented tapers is joined together by the wick so they can be hung as a decoration or cut apart and burned to create flickering glow. We make our tapers so they are dripless but make sure they are standing straight and are not in a drafty area. The candles are made by hand dipping a white unscented taper into highly scented green wax which gives them the fragrance and beautiful colored coating. Each taper will burn around 1 to 1.5 inches per hour. They are handmade in the U.S.A. What It Smells Like: Bayberry is the perfect blend of fir and balsam enhanced with sweet berry notes and just the right amount of nutmeg and spice.
