Whether you're an occasional or frequent fire-builder, you know that starting a fire can be a challenge.

Introducing Flamers Natural Firelighters. In this blog, we will discuss why these firelighters are the best on the market. From their eco-friendly and sustainable production to their superior performance, we'll cover all the reasons why Flamers should be your go-to firelighter. 

Flamers Natural Firelighters: History

History of Flamers

George and Nic first discovered natural wood wool firelighters at a wood burning show in Italy in 2008, and felt they were the perfect product fit for Certainly Wood. The Flamers brand was born. 

In 2014, we transferred the manufacturing operation to the UK at our site here in Hereford. They are now Made in Britain, and are now a part of the Made in Britain campaign which supports British manufacturers. Throughout the years, we have made significant modifications to the original manufacturing operation to improve efficiencies, quality and reduce costs.

We started with the 24 pack and 3 pack, both being supplied in their own free standing display units (FSDU’s). Shortly afterwards we developed the 50 pack and then the 200 pack for bulk sales and to reduce costs per unit to the consumer.

In 2020, our KindleFlamers were born... but we'll leave that story for another day!

Why chose Flamers?


One of the standout features of Flamers Natural Firelighters is that they are completely odourless.

This is a crucial aspect when it comes to firelighting, as many traditional firelighters can leave a strong, unpleasant smell that lingers in the air. Flamers, on the other hand, use only natural wood shavings and fully refined paraffin wax, resulting in a clean and neutral burn with no lingering scent.

Not only does this make Flamers more pleasant to use, but it also makes them a safer option as there are no harmful chemicals being released into the air. With Flamers, you can enjoy the warmth and comfort of your fire without any unwanted odours.

With Flamers, you don't need to worry about carrying multiple types of fire starters for different situations. Their reliable and consistent burn makes them a go-to option for any outdoor or indoor fire lighting need.

Additionally, Flamers are easy to store and transport, making them the perfect addition to your camping gear or bushcrafting kit. With Flamers Natural Firelighters, you have a multi-purpose fire starter that can handle any job you throw at it.

One per fire

One of the most impressive aspects of Flamers Natural Firelighters is how efficiently they work. Unlike many other fire starters, you only need one Flamer, along with a few pieces of kiln dried kindling, to get a roaring fire going.

This makes Flamers a cost-effective option compared to other fire starters that require multiple units to get the same result. With Flamers and kindling, you can start a fire quickly and easily, without needing to fuss with messy or unreliable alternatives.

The reliable performance and efficiency of Flamers Natural Firelighters are just a few of the many reasons why they are the best option for starting your next fire.

Flamers Natural Firelighters are made with natural wood shavings and fully refined paraffin wax, making them a natural and eco-friendly option for starting fires. The wood shavings used in Flamers are sustainably sourced and the manufacturing process ensures that they are produced without the use of any harmful chemicals or additives.

While the use of refined paraffin wax may not be 100% natural, it is a safe and non-toxic material that is commonly used in household items like candles and cosmetics. Additionally, Flamers do not contain any artificial fragrances, keresone, or other toxic materials, making them a healthier option for both you and the environment.

By choosing Flamers Natural Firelighters, you can feel good about using a natural and sustainable product that is safe, effective, and environmentally friendly.

When it comes to the cost of Flamers Natural Firelighters, they are highly competitive with other fire starter options on the market. While the upfront cost per unit may be slightly higher than some cheaper options, Flamers are a cost-effective choice in the long run due to their superior performance and efficiency.

As mentioned earlier, only one Flamer is needed to start a fire, compared to other fire starters that require multiple units to achieve the same result. This means that a pack of Flamers will last longer and produce less waste, ultimately saving you money.

Additionally, Flamers are a high-quality and reliable product, meaning that you can trust them to work consistently and effectively every time. While there may be cheaper options available, they often sacrifice quality and reliability, making Flamers a superior choice in terms of cost and value.
