Bayberry Wax


Product Description

Bayberry wax is an aromatic green vegetable wax. It is removed from the surface of the fruit of the bayberry (wax-myrtle) shrub (ex. Myrica cerifera) by boiling the fruits in water and skimming the wax from the surface of the water.[1] It is made up primarily of esters of lauric, myristic, and palmitic acid.

Bayberry wax is used primarily in the manufacture of scented candles[3] and other products where its distinctive resinous fragrance is desirable.
