Bayberry wax is an aromatic green vegetable wax. It is removed from the surface of the fruit of the bayberry (wax-myrtle) shrub Myrica faya by boiling the fruits in water and skimming the wax from the surface of the water. It is amongst the hardest to find of vegetable waxes but has a long history in the use of making natural tapered candles. Personal Care Artisans, however, are discovering its use as a vegan substitute for Beeswax (Beeswax cannot be used by those who are vegan). We recommend that you test your beeswax recipes as you may need more or less Bayberry Wax to achieve the same texture. Bayberry wax is used primarily in the manufacture of candles and other products where the distinctive fragrance is desirable.
