A Handmade item
Made in Australia
by Soaping in the Shed
* All Madeit sellers are based in Australia and goods are shipped from Australia.

This listing is for a gift box of 4 minis (25 grams) and 3 Maxi (75 grams) plant based fire starters packed in shredded brown paper in a pretty gift box and loosely wrapped in gift paper with a small gift tag.

The Original Fire Starters are made by myself on our family farm near Capella, Central Qld.

All of the combustible material is thoroughly dehydrated to prevent discolouration, mould and insects.

The herbs (bay leaves, lavender, rosemary and mint ), flowers ( gomphrena, lavender and celosia) and cotton bolls ( raw cotton) are grown in our garden along with native leaves, bark, pine cones and gum nuts. The vegetable wax (palm) is sourced from a Brisbane Supplier.

Simply light the wick, and watch the fire starter burn robustly for 20 to 30 minutes.
They make starting a fire so easy without the use of paper, kindling or kerosene.

Please note these are not scented candles or melts. While they are scented, and smell great while sitting on the mantle piece, the fragrance does not carry through when lit.
They are purposely made to light a fire in an indoors fire place, wood stove or outdoors fire pit and once alight, even a strong wind will not blow them out.

The original fire starters will not melt below 70°C so are perfect for travel and storage in a hot car or caravan.

I will post the following day after payment is received.
