Below is a link to an article on Bayberry Candles.
Thinking about all the holiday scents surrounding us and I have to say I love the smell of peppermint, sugar cookies (vanilla), christmas tree (pines), bayberry, cranberrys, cinnamon and apples :) for the holiday. Bayberry is special and goes back to colonial times in New England.
Folklore goes, To bring good luck for a year, they say, you must burn a Bayberry Candle on Christmas Day. And if the flame burns bright, and the light shines clear, then heaven will bless you all the year.
A bayberry candle burned to the socket, will bring joy to the heart and gold to the pocket." So in keeping with tradition it's time to get some bayberry candles for the holiday :)
