Handcrafted Magikal Firestarters

Posted Nov 03 2008 8:46pm

  1. Firestarters_031 Fill a paper egg carton with dry wood shavings.  Pack the shavings down tightly in each egg cup.
  2. I placed Magikal Herbs in each egg cup: 1 sprig of Lavender, 1 sprig of Rosemary, 1 sprig of Red Cedar frond and a Red Cedar cone on the top of the shavings
  3. Pour 1/4 cup of melted wax over each egg cup and let sit overnight to harden.

NOTES:  Try to make these wonderful firestarters using the abundance of what Mother Earth gives you and not to purchase anything. yeah I know, the egg carton was purchased somewhere along the line... I melt the wax in an old soup can that sits in another pot that has a few inches of boiling water.  Heat slowly on a stove until the wax is melted.  Using leftover candle wax is best. ( you can also add essential oils to the wax)  I also put the egg carton on an old cookie sheet so I can scrape the excess wax off that may flow out of the bottom of the egg carton.  I reuse the excess wax.   To use these wonderful firestarters;  tear off one egg cup, light the edge and set into the center of the fire.  That's all!
