    Red cedar berries?

    Can any of you fine folks find information on making candles out of red cedar berries? These are a type of juniper berry. I've heard that the waxy skin can be used in candle making , but can not find anything on doing this. I have candle molds and usually use bee's wax to make the old fashioned long point candles, and I think these would be a nice added touch.

    I've looked but can't see anything on this topic. I guess I'm not "fine enough" JDB. :) Hopefully, somebody else can help.

    Thank you for trying Ducky.. I know the berries are edible but find nothing on candle making with them.

    This is a different berry but it may give you an idea of what to do.
