Is the weather warming up where you are yet?

It’s starting to feel like summer here in California, so I thought it was time to share this great tutorial that I discovered for making insect-repellant 100% pure beeswax candles! Link is after my commentary as per usual.



Some of you may already have read Off-grid.info’s tips on how to make beeswax “jar candles”. This new tutorial adds an extra twist – the use of citronella, eucalyptus and cedarwood essential oils which act as insect repellants, meaning that your candles are great for use outdoors on those warm summer evenings that will soon be upon us! 🙂

I can’t really think of very much to add to this fantastic tutorial. They’ve covered it all, including a ton of extra images and a list of all the tools and materials you will need.

There are a few important notes regarding candle safety, and these are important – so I might as well go over them again: 1) Use the “double boiler” for melting beeswax (this is more for quality because too high a temp, such as that from using a single pan. will discolor / burn the beeswax. 2) make sure the wick stays in the center of the jar when pouring the candle. A wick too close to the side could heat the glass too much and cause it to crack. 3) Don’t let candles burn all the way to the bottom as this could also crack the glass (another reason not to leave candles unattended!) 4) Don’t leave candles close to curtains or drapes, and don’t leave them underneath a shelf as when the air is still, they can set light to things a surprising distance above the flame. 5) It’s usually a good idea to leave candles on a sturdy, steady earthenware dish, even if they are in a jar, to add another layer of “protection” in case they get knocked over etc.

Here, then, is the link to the full tutorial for insect repellant beeswax candles:

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
