Swedish fire log also can be called – “primus wooden”, “Swedish fire”, “Finnish candles”. This device can be employed in such ways: to cook food or illuminate your road.
The variety of timber from which you make a swedish fire log has no special significance, but it should be keep in mind that, for instance, spruce or pine – ” pop off “, and provides a lot of sparks, so using this “candle” gives not very adapted and tranquil heating. Birch would well lit and warm, not “pop off “, but the blaze of it, notably at the end of burning, little bloats. Most suitable is dry aspen that blazes smooth and has an insipid flame. In any event, in the making of “Indian candle” should be utilized as much as feasible, dry but not decayed wood.
