One per fire: Say goodbye to the frustration of fumbling with newspapers, or messy liquid fire starters.

Are natural firelighters effective?

Yes, Flamers Natural Firelighters are effective. They are made from natural wood shavings and dipped in a refined paraffin wax. Their composition allows for easy and reliable ignition of fires. Many users find them convenient and efficient for starting fires in woodburners, barbeques, and campfires. 

What are the most eco friendly firelighters?

Flamers natural firelighters are made with natural wood shavings and fully refined up-cycled 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.

Our refined paraffin wax is a safe and non-toxic material that is commonly used in household items like candles and cosmetics. The wax used with our Flamers is a bi-product of the motor industry, and hence up-cycled. We use a waste product to produce Flamers, making it more environmentally firendly than most alternative plant-based waxes.

Additionally, Flamers do not contain any artificial fragrances, kerosene, or other toxic materials, making them a better option for both you and the environment.

What are the best firelighters for lighting a stove?

For lighting a stove, it is best to use a natural firefighter. 

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.

How long do natural firelighters burn for?

Flamers natural firelighters will burn up to 15 minutes. More importantly, they will burn for long enough to light up the kindling and logs. We recommend using the top-down method of firelighting.
