You can probably make yourself. Punch a hole with an appropriate sized nail to thread through a wick.

I buy a roll of wicks for 1.5 inch candle and thread it through a hole so that I can make it to burn continuously. As it gets short, I just pull it up a little with a tweezer whereas short, pre-cut wicks goes off once it gets short.

And whatever you were cooking beforehand will come out in the burn later, anyone for beef burger and chips aroma.

One extra thing to do to keep you house warmer in winter is to paint any surfaces that catch the lower winter sun a matt black colour. Just draw a line on your south facing internal walls on dec 21st or non cloudy day close to this and paint from that point downwards. The cost of the paint should pay for itself in years to come especially if the walls contain alot of thermal mass.

Another cosmic flowerpot heater top tip : A Yorkshire puddings/buns oven tray with six
or more apertures is an ideal double candle heater booster base.

How to heat your home with the winter sun, they use these a lot in Spain in differing designs.

I'm sure there's some very good ways of heating your house, but as far as the majority of the public are aware of or concerned about is the usual methods which are via the gas and electric companies, which means the usual costly bills. The only thing close to anything remotely "alternative" that we have (in the UK at least) is with the bombardment of companies trying to pursuade you to have solar panels installed on your roof, with the added advantage of it being free. Anyone here think all this solar panel "craze" is a big con?. Far too many of these companies coming out of the woodworks lately. I doubt they are very efficient.

Better still... go to your nearest KFC and see if they'll spare you some of their used oil. Wonderful aroma of KFC permeates your room.

You know what, I tried getting oil from these outlets to make bio-diesel but now it all has to be disposed of due to health and safety regulations, same goes for waste engine oil, the last time I visited our local garages, they either burn it themselves or it has to go for contracted recycling.

TPTB are quickly closing all the loop holes for the alternatives.

Garages now also have to download a waste oil licence, pay the fee for burning their own waste, I tell you, they are really pushing ahead and stopping anyone to gaining any savings.

There will always be black market.

Those balsa wood coffee stirrers they give you in Wetherspoons make excellent candle lighting splints.

wow, good idea! I did look on ebay but didn't buy them. I'll be nicking some from waitrose now.
You'd need a stand for it and a glass/metal container though.

"Aye. Duz tha want bluddy table an' all ? Tek t'carpet up while thaz at it."
