I've never made candles before, but I was reading about boiling down the seeds/berries of these plants, extracting the wax, and making candles. Sounds intriguing, if not extremely labor intensive...but still interesting to me. Anyone ever attempted this? I am speaking specifically of the Chinese Tallow Tree and the Southern Wax Myrtle Myrica cerifera. I have both.

Thanks!

Amanda
