    Next put the sap into the lid or small container. !!-Make sure that your lid or container will not melt or burn-!!

    Then light it on fire, it is not as easy as it sounds. It is best done by getting a match letting the match burn for a few seconds then set the burning match on top of the sap.

    • and that is how easy it is to make a natural bug chaser candle.
