Williamsburg Bayberry Candles and The Bayberry Candle Legend

Williamsburg Bayberry Candles

Burning bayberry candles is a tradition dating back to colonial times. Early colonists came upon the bayberry shrub growing in the sand belt of the Atlantic coast, as well as the shores of Lake Erie. The berry-type fruit is crusted with a greenish-white wax, settlers found that boiling the fruit created a wax residue on the surface of the water. The wax had a fragrant aroma and burned magnificently. Many berries had to be boiled to get enough wax to make a candle, these candles burned longer, cleaner, and brighter than did the traditional candles of the time. Therefore, bayberry candles were saved and burned on special occasions only! One such special occasion was the celebration of the New Year.

Over the years, the burning of bayberry candles on New Year's became a tradition, creating a saying by who, no one knows, yet the tradition continues today:


"Bayberry candles burned to the socket, bring health to the home and wealth to the pocket!"

The wax was believed to have medicinal uses, and honoring someone by burning a bayberry candle had a special meaning, perhaps creating a closer partnership and therefore better dealings!

Keep the tradition alive by burning a bayberry candle during the holidays, or better yet, give one to a close friend as a gift to ensure a close relationship.

We hope that our long burning bayberry scented tapers will bring you and your loved ones a peaceful, plentiful, and rewarding new year.
