Wow the candles looks great, it's so cool that you can use a banana leaf as a wick. Would love to see how it burns!

I saw this on a beach in the Filipines.

I've made 30 candles so far. This Saturday I'll burn them all. Shall take pictures ;-).
The one I got burning already, is burning for 20 hours now, and still has many hours to go. ;-)
