How to Make Wax Fire Starters
This idea comes from our friend Ashley Poskin. "This method is a fantastic way to create a large number of fire starters all at once," she says, "and looks beautifully rustic in a jar displayed next to your fireplace, waiting to be of service on your next cozy fireside evening."
You'll need to pick up a few items you may not already have like soy or beeswax and cotton wicks, but everything else can be found in your home or backyard. If you're looking for specific items like dried chamomile or whole cloves, check out your local farmers' market for a large range of items. Instead of trekking through the woods to find tinder and kindling (which can be a time consuming task), simply pop one of these sweet smelling fuel-filled starters in the fire and add a few logs.
