Anybody who likes to camp out in the wilderness can tell you - it gets really dark out there! In an off-grid lifestyle without electricity, candlelight not only lights the way, but is warm and comforting. It all starts with beeswax. In an extreme off-grid lifestyle, when you can't depend on craft stores, you can hunt down the beehive or learn beekeeping. Then, you remove the honey and filter the wax. Finally, you can make candles.
