If you’ve ever experienced an extended power outage you know that having enough light to see at night is critical for your safety. While most people think a few store bought candles will work, you’d be surprised how quickly you can go through those candles if you lose your power for a few days. In this simple, to the point video, Chris of Adeldor DIY demonstrates how easy it is to make candles that will burn for quite a long time. While Chris shows this being made just with either the lard or vegetable shortening, you could add an essential oil to the heated oil to create a scented candle. This really is simple way to make sure you’re never without light.
Special note: Adeldor DIY takes a minimalist approach to their videos so there’s no voice over – just the video demonstration and text as to what to use. I like their simple production.
