Light is such an important part of survival. When was the last time the power went out in your neighborhood? It happens, right? What would you do after all of your candles were burned down and the flashlights were all out of batteries? What can you make a lamp out of. We have seen the Crisco candle but did you know that you can also use vegetable oil to create a simple light source?
