Introduction: Crayon Candle

This could be a lifesaver in a power outage!

How it works:
The crayon's paper functions as a wick, slowly burning down the crayon while consuming the wax. These candles burn for about 5 minutes, so just a 12-pack will provide you with an hour of light!

They burn pretty fast. Where did that wax and any chemicals go? Is it in the air, are you breathing it into your lungs? Sounds a little dangerous to me, not to mention the chemicals in the coloring are known to be toxic in some candles.

It's not that bad. It just smells sort of like a blown-out candle.

That looks kinda dangerous

It's completely safe as long as you stay away from flammable objects. The flame is taller than most candles, but this is simply a result of the larger wick.
