Cypress & Bayberry Jar
Early American colonists in Williamsburg and beyond hand-dipped their candles in bayberry-scented wax for the holidays. Our version includes an evergreen twist on this centuries-old tradition, incorporating strains of cypress, bay laurel, eucalyptus, and balsam fir.
Part of the Doric collection, this candle is housed in a stately column-like glass jar that offers the ultimate in re-usability. Once the candle is finished, repurpose the glass to hold cotton swabs, small office supplies, or even blooms from your garden.
Candle burn time & dimensions:
approx. 40 hours or 60 hours
|Height:||3.5 in. (4 in. with lid)||3.75 in. (4.25 in. with lid)|
|Width:||2.5 in. (3 in. wide at base/lid)||2.75 in. (3.25 in. wide at base/lid)|
For best (and safest) results, trim the candle wick to 1/8"-1/4" before lighting (each time!). Don't burn for longer than four hours at a time.
Allow the candle to achieve a full melt pool on the first burn. The wax should be fully melted from edge to edge and the liquid wax should be 1/4" or less deep. Failure to do so will result in excess wax left on the sides of the container for the remainder of the life of the candle. (This is known as soy wax's "memory".)
If the candle flame appears too high or starts producing soot, extinguish the candle, trim the wick, and relight.
KEEP ALL CANDLES OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN AND PETS. Do not burn candles unattended, on an uneven or flammable surface, in close proximity to flammable materials, or in an enclosed space (such as a bookshelf).
