    Hey everyone,
    I made these neat homemade firestarter candles. They are great to have on hand for your EDC kit. They light up nicely and burn for many minutes. This helps you get your fire going.

    I made a video on how to make them. Enjoy!

    I pick up cheap candles at the thrift stores :) and melt them down for our fire starters. I have 2 qt pan that is always used for melting the candles. Then add the melted wax to pine shaveings in egg carton egg holders. You can also use pine cones dipped in wax. Easy peasy.

    We use SawMill Sawdust, mixed with used Engine LubeOil, and Candle Wax, to make Egg Cartoon Fire Starters... Really Easy Peasy, and they burn very Hot.....
