Homemade Wax Fire Starters



  1. Line your muffin tin with paper liners. Fill each one with a mixture of bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, and dried herbs. Place a cotton wick in the center of each cup.
  2. Place your soy wax in the glass jar. Microwave in 30-second intervals until melted. Add your essential oils and stir.
  3. Pour melted wax into each muffin tin until almost full. Add extra herbs if needed, then let cool completely.
  4. Remove the fire starters from the pan and store in an airtight container until ready to use.
  5. To use, place a fire starter at the bottom of a wood-burning fireplace and stack the logs on top. Light the wick and allow the fire starter to burn until the wood catches.
