How to Make Emergency Candles for Heat and Light
There are many different ways to light your home when the power goes out, but candles are my favorite because you can also use them for heat. Lots of them will help warm a small room in the wintertime, or you could use them in an emergency stove.
But if you’re on a tight budget, you’re better off making your own candles. Fortunately, they’re not that hard to make. You just need a few supplies and a little practice. This tutorial has step by step instructions on how to make candles and buddy burners (which you can use for cooking). This is a great DIY project for preppers who like making their own stuff.
