All Natural Birch Roll Firestarters
All natural, handmade Birch Roll Firestarters that can alternately be used as beautiful pieces of home decor. These firestarter rolls are easy to pack and carry for a camping excursion, would make great gifts for the outdoors man, or look beautiful in a basket beside your fireplace!
Each firestarter is carefully handcrafted and created from a bundle of assorted twigs tied with jute twine and then wrapped with a piece of salvaged White or Yellow Birch bark. Hemp is then wound around the bundle to hold the firestarter securely together. The end of the twig bundles are dipped in a complex variety of natural resins that dry shiny and hard and help waterproof the wood. This combination of salvaged birch bark and natural resin combines to create a quick-catching fire propellant. Because of the waterproofing resin, RussTick Natural Woods® firestarters can even be lit when damp, making them perfect for lighting fires in your fireplace and woodstove, or outdoor fire pits.
RussTick Natural Woods® firestarters are virtually waterproof and have an indefinite shelf life. Burn time is approximately 15 minutes per firestarter. Flashpoint is at least 700 degrees. RussTick Natural Woods® does not use any artificial sealants, glues, or finishes in production of these pieces…only natural and local hand-picked materials. RussTick Natural Woods® firestarters are ALL natural and environmentally friendly. There are no harsh odors, unnatural chemicals, or airborne toxins…only safe, clean, breathable air.
